Top tips for hayfever relief

certain fruits eg. bananas, pears

smoked foods eg. smoked salmon, hams

aged foods eg. cheese

fresh fish

With food avoidance being helpful, it is also important to maintain gut health with probiotics as the gut plays an important role with the immune system.

Vitamin C 2000mg/day

Raw local honey

Hesperidin 2000mg/day

Nettle tea
