Top picks for allergy relief
This article was originally published in April 2013
PCC has natural allergy remedies that won’t leave you foggy and fatigued. We asked Redmond PCC wellness expert (and fellow allergy sufferer) Roxanne Green to share her top picks.
When pollen coats your windshield and the whole world seems one giant, agonizing bloom, you’ll find long-lasting relief with remedies crafted from traditional herbs, plants and roots that have been used to comfort, ease and heal for generations, including nettle leaf, licorice root, onion and quercetin. “They stimulate your body to take care of itself rather than take care of symptoms,” said Green.
PCC also carries a variety of allergy remedies safe for children, as well as a wide array of all-natural nasal sprays to provide relief to irritated nasal passages and soothe sinuses. Ask one of our health and body care staffers the next time you shop — they’re glad to help!
