    While reading another thread about bees, it got me thinking about allergic reactions. Personally, I'm allergic to bees. Thankfully, my reaction is only mild (or at least it was last time it happened) so I don't think a bee sting could actually kill me. But I was wondering if a person with a bee allergy was stung and didn't have antihistamines, is there anything else they would be able to do? Is there some kind of natural herb or something that would work as an antihistamine?

    Bioflavonoids are an organic antihistamine and firmly hostile to any allergenic. Bromelain and vitamin C can upgrade the activity of bioflavonoids. Strawberries are a delectable red color along with red bell peppers indicating that they are an incredible wellspring flowing with bioflavonoids.

    Yes, herbs such as evening primrose, ginger, stinging nettles, and basil are said to be effective antihistamine remedies. The trick is to learn how to prepare these herbs to extract the remedial effect from them. However, guess you would probably be able to get the know-how on sites like You Tube.

    I know that Bromelain is effective at treating respiratory distress and other symptoms often associated with allergies, primarily by blocking the action of agents causing inflammation and swelling. Most commonly known as an enzyme found in pineapples and pineapple juice, but can also be purchased in supplement form.

    Oh wow, I never knew that! That's incredibly interesting. So does that mean if you were having an allergic reaction (obviously not one where your throat closed up, since you couldn't swallow), that if you ate strawberries or bell peppers it would help with it?

    I've heard of basil and ginger used for a lot of things but not as an antihistamine. I'll have to try searching on YouTube and see if I can find more information on how to use them.

    Wow! I didn't realize that normal foods contained something that could help with an allergic reaction. When I asked this question I was expecting people to say things like plants and herbs.

    I am not so sure if having allergies and having a severe allergic reaction constitute as the same thing, so I am going to have to say that I am not sure. As for your run of the mill wheezing and sniffling, bioflavionoids such as quercetin, found in tons of organic vegetables, grains and fruits can build up your tolerance to allergies. As for those specific allergic reactions, they may not work exactly the same way.

    Well either way, it's definitely a good reason to eat healthier! Even if it it doesn't work for that intended purpose, it'll still be beneficial for you in other ways.

    That is true. If you are really trying to eat healthier then I suggest that you look into an alkaline diet. It is based on pure organic non-gmo or even hybrid vegetable food and is said to be so effective that AIDS patience have been totally cured of the disease. If this diet can't help to reduce allergic reactions then I don't know what will.

    Here's what I found online.

    Stinging Nettle - I've seen these things in the bush, but I always thought it was a weed. But it is a herb and there are a bunch of ways to prepare it, but you can make a tea out of it.

    Quercetin - A antioxidant that has been known to has antihistamine affects. Check out the chart to see where the highest form of it is found in produce.

    Bromelain - Found commonly in Pineapples.

    Vitamin C - Lots of fruits have this in it. Take your pick.
