Do you long for Summer, then dread it as you remember the discomfort that you endure every year? Are you reaching for the antihistamines as you read? You're not alone – it’s estimated that seasonal issues affect one in four (around 49%) of people every year (1) – and that's just in the UK!

Seasonal discomfort (e.g. sneezing, itchy eyes, nose, rashes etc.) can be frustrating and debilitating, making day-to-day life a misery. Traditional approaches focus on managing symptoms rather than addressing the root cause. However, in the realm of holistic healing, innovative modalities such as The Emotion Code and Body Code offer promising solutions for sufferers. By identifying and releasing underlying emotional and energetic imbalances, these techniques can help bring relief and restore balance to the body.

Let's explore how Emotion Code and Body Code may assist in alleviating those seasonal sniffles and promote overall well-being.

Understanding The Symptoms

Issues occur when the immune system overreacts to substances that are typically harmless – for example pollen, dust mites or certain foods. This exaggerated immune response can lead to a range of symptoms, including sneezing, itching, congestion, skin rashes, and digestive discomfort.

While conventional medicine primarily focuses on managing symptoms with antihistamines

or immunotherapy, The Emotion Code and Body Code take a different approach. These modalities recognise that these issues can have underlying emotional and energetic components, which, when addressed, can alleviate symptoms and promote long-lasting relief.

Releasing trapped emotions and restoring energetic balance can lead to a reduction in symptoms, providing much-needed relief from discomfort and improving the overall quality of life.

Identifying Emotional and Energetic Imbalances

The Emotion Code and Body Code delve into the energetic and emotional realms to uncover the underlying imbalances contributing to seasonal symptoms of sneezing, itchy eyes and skin etc.

Practitioners such as myself use muscle testing to access the subconscious mind and gain insight into the body’s energetic imbalances. Through systematic questioning, we identify Trapped Emotions™, unresolved emotional energies that can disrupt the body’s natural energy flow. These trapped emotions may be related to specific allergens, past upsetting events or other emotional factors that contribute to the body’s over-exaggerated response to the trigger substance.

Releasing Emotional and Energetic Blocks

Once identified, The Emotion Code and Body Code can be used to release trapped emotions associated with the trigger substance and the body’s energy flow can be restored, allowing the immune system to function more harmoniously. This holistic approach can not only provide relief from symptoms, but can also address the underlying causes of an over-exaggerated immune response, paving the way for long-term healing and well-being.

Other Holistic Ways to Deal With Summer Sneezes

Up Your Fruit, Veg (and Tea!)

Eating foods that contain quercetin may help to alleviate your symptoms. Quercetin is a natural compound belonging to a group of substances known as flavonoids. It is rich in antioxidants which help the body to fight off harmful molecules and is known to inhibit the release of histamine, the chemical that triggers the immune system to over-react to substances.

Consuming fruit and vegetables that are rich in Quercetin may help to ease your symptoms. These include:

  • Tea

  • Berries

  • Broccoli

  • Apples

  • Onions

A Spoonful of Honey

Taking a spoonful of honey every day may improve symptoms of seasonal issues.

A study (2) conducted in 2010 suggested that taking a high dose of honey alongside medication can significantly improve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis (AR) once you hit the eight week mark. It also showed that the improvements lasted a month after treatment was stopped.

It has been speculated that it’s best to use honey sourced from your local area. There haven’t been any studies that have proven this so far, but personally, I feel it’s nicer to buy fresh honey from a local beekeeper, rather than a large, faceless supermarket.

To get the best results, start taking the honey daily a few weeks before you would usually start to get symptoms.

CAUTION: Honey should NOT be given to children under age one because of the risk of botulism, a rare condition that can be life-threatening. It should also not be taken by people that are allergic to wasp and/or bee stings as there is a risk of adverse reaction. If in any doubt, please check with your medical professional before trying this method.

Block Your Blocked Nose

Applying a sticky barrier such as a balm or Vaseline around the edge of your nostrils can help reduce symptoms by trapping the pollen before it has a chance to get into your body and trigger your immune response.

Essential Oils For Seasonal Discomfort

Essential oils have been used since ancient times for supporting wellbeing and there are many that can be used for self-support to relieve symptoms of seasonal issues.

Here are a few essential oils that have been shown to have a soothing effect:

  • Lavender – a very calming, sedative oil that has also been shown to inhibit allergic reactions in animals (3).

  • Lemon – supports your lymphatic system, inhibits bacterial growth and supports your immune system (4). CAUTION: if using a citrus oil such as Lemon in a blend on your skin, this can cause UV sensitivity if exposed to the sun, so please apply to a covered area, such as the soles of your feet.

  • Peppermint – one study suggested that peppermint oil has anti-inflammatory effects (5), reducing the symptoms of inflammatory disorders, such as allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma.

  • Roman Chamomile – this oil has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties and I find it works well for me personally when I just sniff it from the bottle. CAUTION: test it out first as it can actually trigger a reaction in some people.

There are many ways to use essential oils such as sniffing from the bottle, using in a diffuser or blending a few drops with a carrier oil and applying to your body.

CAUTION: if using a citrus oil such as Lemon in a blend on your skin, this can cause UV sensitivity if exposed to the sun, so please apply to a covered area, such as the soles of your feet.

I don't want nasty additives in my essential oils, so I only use Certified Therapeutic Grade Oils – these are my favourites in a great little introductory kit containing three 5ml bottles:

The clever people over at doTERRA have also created handy softgels called TriEase specifically designed for Summer sneezes that contain Lemon Peel, Lavender Flower and Peppermint Plant. Check them out here:
