Can anyone suggest a blast for a child with severe allergies and asthma? I am trying to avoid singuliar on a daily basis. He mostly suffers from chronic nasal congestion. Thanks!

Egio, check out the recipes and articles on this site for some recipe suggestions! Put in the words "allergy" or "asthma" into the search bars under the "articles" tab and "recipes" tab. In general: Cayenne pepper has been shown to help lessen congestion and sinus pressure. Peppermint, eucalyptus oil, rosemary, foods rich in vitamin C (strawberries, oranges, lemon, broccoli, red bell pepper, tomatoes, kiwi), and apple cider vinegar all work on different factors such as mucus production, inflammation, or as a decongestant. Humidifiers, nasal saline spray, a neti pot, and/or herbal therapy may also be natural options to consider. Remedies also depend on what is causing the allergy. For certain types, local honey or bee pollen could provide some relief. Keep in mind everyone reacts differently so these may or may not provide relief. Also, be sure to check in with your healthcare provider to make sure these are appropriate for your child. Best of luck!
Some great advice Krista! Thanks for sharing! :-)
I read apples and pears both good for getting rid/relief of asthma.
