Ready or not—here comes ragweed season! And for the 36 million seasonal allergy sufferers in the U.S., this means it’s time for sneezing, wheezing, runny noses, and watery eyes.
A lot of allergy sufferers I know swear by this Anti-Allergy Juice as an effective—and delicious—treatment for their seasonal woes. What’s more, besides helping to relieve allergy symptoms, it’s chock-full of vitamins that will fine-tune your whole internal system. Here’s how to make a batch of the jewel-toned sipper:
Cut three carrots, half of a beet with greens, and half of a cucumber into sections about 1 inch by ½ inch, and process them in your juicer (either all together or separately, depending on the size of the container). Drink two to three 8-ounce glasses of the combo a day.
Looking for a simpler ragweed-relief remedy? My Grandma Putt’s favorite treatment still works wonders for me. Soak a washcloth in the hottest water you can stand, wring it out, and lay it across your nose and sinuses. If you keep the cloth as hot as you can, it seems to work on the same principle as hot soup or spicy food: It loosens and liquefies mucus.
