This step is crucial as some herbal remedies can counteract current medications. The last thing you want to do is end up in the emergency room because of a bad chemical reaction.

3. Contact an herbalist.

If you are interested in locating an experienced herbalist in your area, you can visit the American Herbalists Guild (AHG) site at: www.americanherbalistsguild.com/

4. Start out slowly and try one of the following:

• Try drinking 2-3 cups of green tea , fennel, ginger or chamomile tea daily

• Also, try a 20 minute ginger bath
• Add papaya fruit to your daily diet
• Try a mangosteen juice or supplement. Please note high doses of the juice may cause constipation.
• Some experts believe taking high doses of vitamin C will subdue allergy symptoms. However, stop if you experience an upset stomach or diarrhea.
