While some are looking forward to the coming spring with impatience every year, others look forward to the burgeoning nature rather with horror. Especially in spring, when everything really starts to bloom, allergy sufferers suffer from colds, tearing eyes and a tingling neck. For most allergy sufferers, the hay fever season starts in winter, when they want to prepare for the pollen with a wide variety of means from the pharmacy or the doctor – that is, when they start hyposensitizing. Now, however, there should also be people who do not want to pump themselves full of chemistry for their hyposensitization, but prefer to rely on natural products.

Hyposensitization with honey basically works in the same way as the conventional medicine method. In layman's terms, this means that the substances to which it is allergic are fed to the body in small quantities, so that it can get used to it and no longer react to these substances. So if you suffer from hay fever, you can at least try to arm yourself against the pollen.

If you decide to follow this naturopathic path, you should also start with this special hyposensitization in autumn and winter. It is important to take honey from the immediate region. It is also important to buy the right variety from the beekeeper. For example, if you show allergic reactions in spring, you should buy the flower honey, which was obtained in the spring and consume a spoonful of it daily. Incidentally, there are no scientifically proven studies for the effectiveness of this method of hyposensitization.
