9 Natural Remedies to Alleviate Hayfever Symptoms

Dreading the sniffles, itchy eyes, and constant congestion that plagues you every spring? You're not alone. Hayfever, also known as allergic rhinitis, affects millions worldwide. It's an overreaction of your immune system to airborne allergens, most commonly pollen. When pollen enters your nose, your body releases histamine, a chemical that triggers a cascade of inflammatory responses – hello, runny nose and itchy eyes!
