Bee-Collected Pollen Recommended for Hay Fever

Banish Hay Fever the Natural Way
By Erica Angyal, The Japan Times, 3/7/2006

As winter draws to a close, most of us are eagerly awaiting the first signs of spring. Other less fortunate people, however, are busy stockpiling antihistamines, eye drops, face masks, herbal remedies or anything else that will help get them through the anguish of kafunsho (hay fever), which will soon sweep through Japan.

When the runny nose and itchy eyes of hay fever strikes, stick to an anti-inflammatory diet, which includes olive oil and fish such as salmon. . .

Bee pollen may also be effective in alleviating hay fever symptoms. Take it a few weeks before the hay fever season starts. It desensitizes the body and can reduce hay fever symptoms. . .

New Japanese Drink Contains Royal Jelly, Propolis
