Hay Fever & Nasal Irrigation

What is Hay Fever?

Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is an allergic reaction in the nasal passages. It can be caused by dust, but is usually triggered by pollen, which is why it is most common during the Spring. Hay fever can occur at any time of the year. The body reacts to the dust or pollen and begins producing antibodies including histamine. This causes itching, swelling and mucus, and can even cause hives or rashes. It affects around 20% of the UK population – or around 12,000,000 people.

How do you decongest your nose with hay fever?

Nasal irrigation provides fast, effective relief from hay fever without the use of drugs. By flushing out the nasal passages, it removes the pollen and allergens that triggers hay fever. Studies have shown that nasal irrigation significantly reduces the levels of histamines and leukotrienes, providing both quick relief of hay fever, but also preventing it to start with.

How does nasal irrigation help?

Nasal irrigation flushes out your sinuses and nasal passages, and with it takes out all of the pollens, dust and other allergens. It also removes the histamines and mucus that are produced as a result of the allergic reaction. Regular sinus irrigation works as both a preventative measure and a cure by removing the allergens before your body reacts to them, and once the reaction has started it flushes out both the cause and effects of it. It is the complete hay fever solution.

The main treatment for hay fever are anti-histamine tablets, which prevent the reaction from taking place. However if your hay fever has already started these can prove ineffective, and can cause drowsiness. Sinus irrigation works both before and during hay fever, and is completely drug-free with no side effects. Sinus irrigation also has the additional benefits of helping to prevent colds and viruses, reducing snoring, curing nasal headaches, reducing asthma and many other health benefits that you can read about on this website. So not only does is solve your hay fever problem, it protects you from a range of other conditions at the same time.
