Raw honey is a wonderful natural medicine to help prevent springtime allergies!  According to Ayurveda, excess kapha (earth and water)  and Ama (toxicity) in the body are the two main contributing factors to seasonal allergies. Just a spoonful of honey in the morning can help to remove excess kapha and ama because honey has specific qualities that have mild scraping action on the body. Just make sure you are not heating the honey by adding it to tea or hot water. According to Ayurveda, honey that has been heated becomes mildly toxic because it creates a sticky glue like substance in the body. Raw honey can be found at your local Natural Foods store or Farmer’s Market. (Please note: Honey should never be given to infants under the age of 12 months old.)
