Prevent Hey fever –Rhinitis through Onion

Hay fever , also known as seasonal allergic Rhinitis. In the medical term , describes irritation and inflammation of some internal areas of the nose. It is caused by an allergy to airborne substances such as grass or hay pollen, which affects nose, sinus, throat and eyes. The inflammation results in the generating of excessive amounts of mucus. Each person with hay fever will show a slightly different pattern of symptoms, depending on the particular pollen or spores they react to.


Symptoms of Hey fever : Hay fever symptoms can be similar to a cold, and include a runny nose, watery eyes and repeated sneezing attacks. As with all allergies, the symptoms happen as a result of your immune system overreacting to a normally harmless substance. In this case the substance is pollen. When the body comes into contact with pollen , cells in the lining of your nose, mouth and eyes release a chemical called histamine that triggers the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Causes of Hey fever : Any substance can cause an allergy if exposed to a person in the right way. But for all practical purposes & with few exceptions , allergic rhinitis is caused by proteins. Commonly, allergic rhinitis is a result of an allergic person coming in contact several times with protein from plants. Many trees, grasses & weeds produce extremely small, light, dry protein particles called pollen. This pollen is spread by the wind.

People are more likely to get hay fever if there is a history of allergies in their family, particularly asthma or eczema. Hay fever usually begins in the early teens and peaks up to twenties. Research shows that many people become less sensitive to pollen as they get older and by the time they reach their mid forties , hay fever may no longer be a problem.

Onion a day keeps hay fever at bay : Onion may hold the key to beating hay fever, says a new study. Dutch researchers say onion skins contain quercetin , a potent natural anti-histamine & anti-inflammatory shown to help hay fever sufferers.


According to the British Onion Producers' Association, onions contain three times as much quercetin as kale - the next-richest source - and 10 times as much as broccoli, reports The Daily Express.

Allergic rhinitis triggered by the pollens of specific seasonal plants is commonly known as "hay fever", because it is most prevalent during haying season. Although hay fever can not spread from person to person the symptoms can pass from person to person & it is the biggest cause of sick leave in the US and the UK.
