It still amazes me that the tiny particles of pollen, barely visible to the naked eye, can zap my energy and make my nose run and run. Allergies are three times worse this year than the last, and I, for one, am feeling it.
One easy, quick and natural way to combat congestion is to eat spicy food. Adding a little heat to your meal can clear your sinuses and act as nature's decongestant. If hay fever is getting the best of you, don't shy away from the wasabi at your next sushi meal. Feel free to spoon on the hot salsa on your scrambled eggs for breakfast. When ordering your next curry, be it Thai or Indian, request for them to crank up the heat. Experiment with horseradish and hot mustard too. Just keep those tissues handy.
