“Many people reach for antihistamines whenever they need hay fever relief. But a natural remedy -stinging nettles- is favored by experts in herbal medicine. Freeze-dried nettle leaves can bring dramatic relief if you have hay fever. If you want to try out this herbal antihistamine, you can get various preparations in health food stores. Use freeze-dried nettles in capsules, tinctures, or teas according to label directions. Try a small dose first since some people are sensitive to nettles.” (p.126)
