Seasonal allergies and asthma symptoms often make me feel miserable and drained. I know I’m not alone in this struggle. Millions of people worldwide grapple with the discomfort and inconvenience of seasonal allergies and asthma symptoms. The good news is that I’ve discovered ways to aid my symptoms right from my own kitchen.

In this article, I’ll delve into how my dietary choices have helped me combat allergies and asthma. I’ll also share the most effective ingredients I’ve found for easing their symptoms, and I’ll share my go-to smoothie for allergy relief.

Say goodbye to sneezing, wheezing, and itchy eyes, and say hello to a healthier, happier you!

How Can Your Diet Combat Allergies?

Allergies and asthma can turn even the most beautiful of seasons into an utter nightmare. But did you know that your diet can be a powerful ally in your fight against these symptoms? While you might not completely eliminate allergies and asthma through nutrition alone, making smart dietary choices can significantly reduce their impact on your life.

One of the keys to understanding how diet can combat allergies lies in inflammation. Allergies and asthma are essentially inflammatory responses to triggers in the environment. Certain foods can either exacerbate or alleviate inflammation, and that’s where your diet comes into play.

Inflammatory foods (like those loaded with artificial flavors, sweeteners, and chemicals) can make your symptoms worse. Some foods that may not directly exacerbate your allergies but cause inflammation can include:

·        Refined carbohydrates, like white bread and pastries

·        Fried foods, like French fries

·        Sugar-sweetened beverages, like soda or energy drinks

·        Red meat (burgers, steaks) and processed meat (hot dogs, sausage)

·        Fat-heavy spreads, like butter or margarine

As we know with most things, not all solutions are created equal. So instead of reaching for store-bought products, let’s discover a plant-based, healthier alternative.

The Best Ingredients to Fight Asthma and Allergy Symptoms

Before I dive more into my asthma and allergy relief smoothie recipe, let’s take a closer look at a few ingredients that can help alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms:


A naturally occurring flavonoid found naturally in foods like apples, onions, and berries, Quercetin is an antioxidant and potent ally in the battle against allergies. It’s known for its ability to reduce inflammation and histamine release, making it a natural antihistamine that helps to counteract the effects of histamines that trigger allergic reactions. By stabilizing the cells in the body that release histamine, Quercetin has both an anti-inflammatory and antihistamine effect. By incorporating quercetin-rich foods into your diet (such as in smoothies), you can reduce the severity of allergy symptoms.

Vitamin C

Often associated with its immune-boosting qualities, vitamin C is also helps us in our fight against allergies. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that combats the oxidative stress that can worsen allergy symptoms. By reducing inflammation and stabilizing mast cells, which release histamines, vitamin C helps alleviate the severity of allergic reactions. Some foods rich in vitamin C include oranges, strawberries, and bell peppers. These foods strengthen the immune system and decrease allergy responses.


Many of us know ginger for its spicy kick, but it also offers a myriad of health benefits and relief for allergy symptoms due to this powerful root’s anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger’s active compound, gingerol, acts as the anti-allergenic agent. By incorporating ginger into your diet, whether through teas, stir fry, or as a flavorful spice, you can ease the discomfort of sneezing, congestion, and itchy eyes.


A vibrant yellow spice often found in curry dishes, Turmeric is also known for its anti-allergy properties. Curcumin, its active compound, has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help alleviate allergy symptoms. By reducing the release of histamines and inflammation in the body, curcumin can mitigate the discomfort of sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Incorporating turmeric into your diet can offer substantial relief for allergy sufferers. Turmeric not only eases allergy symptoms but also contributes to overall well-being.


When you consume honey produced in your region, you expose your immune system to small amounts of local pollen allergens. Bee pollen is another popular ingredient in smoothies for the same reason. Over time, this exposure to local, raw honey may help build tolerance to pollen allergies by exposing your immune system to small amounts of local allergens and reducing the severity of allergic reactions. While it may not provide immediate relief, incorporating honey into your diet can lead to more manageable allergy symptoms in the long run – and all you really need is a teaspoon to fight allergies.
