Los Angeles – Spring showers may bring May flowers, but for many, springtime brings the misery of allergies.

"People with seasonal allergies are especially sensitive to pollen and mold spores," says Dr. Holly Lucille, a naturopathic physician specializing in family medicine at Healing Within Healthcare in Los Angeles. "There are natural solutions to deal with the sneezing, stuffy nose, itchy eyes and all the other allergy symptoms that can come with the spring."

Having practiced in the natural health field for over 16 years,. Lucille has found that reducing exposure to allergens and using proven herbal formulas go hand in hand. "Dealing with seasonal allergies requires a comprehensive approach," she says. "I advise patients to take an herbal formula that's been clinically shown to soothe symptoms and provide safe and effective seasonal allergy relief. Herbal formulas work with the body and help patients avoid the side effects of prescription or over-the counter medications."

Lucille offers these 10 tips for natural allergy relief:

1. Go herbal. – Look for a formula with caper, olive leaf, black currant and Panax ginseng, like Seasonal Freedom™ from Enzymatic Therapy. It has been clinically shown to decrease the body's response to allergen triggers by up to 70 percent. This dietary supplement contains a 4-Seasons™ herbal blend that's fast-acting and delivers relief, without making you sleepy or jittery.

2. Get your probiotics. – Because imbalances of intestinal flora are common for people who have allergies, probiotics may be a good choice. Probiotic comes from pro, which means 'for', and bios, which means 'life.' So probiotic literally means "for life." Probiotics are the good bacteria, such as Lactobaccillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium longum that live in our intestines and are essential for the maintenance of strong immune systems.

I've tried many things for allergies, but I found the absolute best one is Nettle Tea. I've given this to several friends and family, too, and they've found it effective against allergies. My cousin and I even used it when we ran into some poison ivy, since I read that poison ivy is actually an allergy. Don't know how much it helped since we were using other things too (I highly recommend homeopathy rhus tox) but I think it was a good additional cure.
