Hi. I have read recently that during hayfever season, one should avoid high allergy foods e.g. milk, soy, gluten etc. for at least four weeks.... Is this proven to work- worth to try? Also, I’ve heard we should eat foods high in antihistamine e.g. Red Pepper's. I get hay fever every summer and have prescribed pills from the doctor (fexofenadine) since regular antihistamine does not work, but I’d prefer to use something more natural and healthy, to prevent the onset of hayfever. Any ideas? Many thanks.

What you eat can have a dramatic effect on your hayfever symptoms. While anti-inflammatory and natural anti-histamine foods can help control your symptoms, foods containing dairy and foods rich in sugar can actually make them worse.
