There are many drug free ways to tackle allergy symptoms; these are just a few. If you know of other allergy cures you think we should add, feel free to comment. Natural allergy remedies are often unproven without many clinical trials to prove their efficacy. You have to make your own judgment about whether these treatments for hay fever are worth trying. Check out the testimonials pages of the various products and, bearing in mind that people very rarely publish negative comments about their products, this will give you an indication of whether people suffering from allergy symptoms find them useful.

Allergen Barrier Balms
The allergen barrier balm is used to stop allergens from entering the body through the nose. It’s suitable for children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Max, the founder of HayMaxTM, found that this worked for him for his hay fever, so he created HayMaxTM which contains 100% organic ingredients including essential oils.
HayMax is made from a blend of beeswax and seed oils, to which we add essential oils or aloe vera leaf juice extracts to create three additional varieties to the original version, HayMax Pure, for added choice and to suit your personal preference. HayMax is 100% natural, organic and drug free, so it’s safe for children and pregnant and breastfeeding women to use.
You can choose from four varieties of HayMax: Pure, Aloe Vera, Lavender and Frankincense. Each variety works in exactly the same way, by restricting the amount of dust and pet allergens and pollen that get into the body. All you do is wipe the balm onto the base of your nostrils. Magic.
How does it work?
t is very simple. HayMax™ acts as a trap – or a blocker. The HayMax™ balm applied to the bottom of the nose traps some of the pollen, dust or pet allergen before it enters the body. If there is less allergen in the body, there’s less for the body to react against. Less allergen – Less reaction (and for some people, none at all!).
HayMax™ does not cure hayfever, dust and pet allergies, it works on the cause to try to reduce or, in some cases, even eliminate the effects of the allergen. (see our testimonials pages)

There are a number of air filters and air purifiers on the market which claim to filter toxins, including pollen, out of the air in your home. Some air conditioners come with a ‘hay fever filter’.
The sneeze beam uses phototherapy to combat allergy symptoms.
Two light beams are inserted into the nostrils and they block the receptors which react to pollen.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Practitioners use both acupuncture and acupressure to treat hay fever.
Acupuncture originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. It is a system of complementary medicine in which fine needles are inserted in the skin at very specific points of the body (acupuncture points) along channels known as meridians. It is used in the treatment of various physical and mental conditions, including allergies such as hay fever.
Acupressure is a non-invasive form of acupuncture, achieved by applying physical pressure of hands, elbows, feet or devices to the same acupuncture points. It too is used in a wide variety of conditions including hay fever.
Q-Chi Acupressure Band
Based on acupressure, the Qu-Chi band is a non invasive, natural way to treat allergy symptoms. It uses acupressure to target key pressure points on the body associated with allergy symptoms. A band is worn on any of these pressure points, including on the elbow.
The nasal filter is a disposable filter that you stick under your nostrils to block pollen and other allergens from entering your body by stopping you inhaling them. Breathe Pure is one popular make.
In 2004 an Australian study found that nasal filters were 98% effective at trapping pollen and 68% effective at reducing hay fever in symptoms in highly allergic people. The study was done in a lab and in a field of rag weed.
