There are some really good and really bad foods that will help to fight your allergies. Onions, cabbage and apples all have quercetin. This is a compound that gives fruits and veggies a reddish cue. Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine. That makes things like Broccoli and bell peppers your friend.
- Allergy-fighting antihistamines come in pill and liquid forms, but they appear naturally vitamin C-packed vegetables. Those, as well as fish rich in Omega-3s, make up an anti-inflammatory diet that can help beat back allergy symptoms, said Emily Tel-fair, a naturopathic doctor in Baltimore.
- Think of antihistamine medications "like the band-aid," she said, necessary for many just to get through the day. A few simple changes, though, may prevent your body from needing them in the first place.
- Consuming it regularly, in food or supplement form, lends the body inflammation-calming nutrients. And don't get too hung up on the color, she said, as these foods need not be red to contain quercetin.
