Oh deep joy!

It seems that the grass pollens have started flying around, as I have now started sneezing and got the nasty itch at the back top of the mouth.

One of the natural remedies tells me to eat plenty of onion, garlic, pineapple, horseradish and local honey, seasoned with turmeric. Then I have to drink plenty of lemon, orange and pineapple juice. I also have to eat local honey, and take one or two tablespoons of cider vinegar (in herbal tea of apple juice, sweetened with honey) 2 to 3 times a day.

Hmmm. I might just sneeze!


  1. 'Tis the season to be sneezy!

    I'm very fortunate in not suffering that much, but sympathise with those who do. It is the same around here, although a different brand of pollen. Every morning for the next three weeks or so we will wake up to find 2mm of bright yellow pollen covering cars, paths, plants and anything left outside. At the height of the blooming it means a daily hose-down of everything! The culprits? Oak trees.

  2. That should have read "herbal tea OR apple juice", not "herbal tea of apple juice". It does make quite a difference.
    I've just had some, and it gives the apple juice quite a kick!

  3. SR, for the sake of those nearby, don't forget the breath mints.

    Sorry about your sneezing.
