In their study, the research team gave the nose spray to 24 people aged 13 and older who suffered from persistent allergic rhinitis (better known as hay fever). The patients recorded the severity of their runny nose, itchy nose, stuffy nose and sneezing.

The treatment significantly reduced all nasal allergy symptoms.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Hay fever is a type of allergy that occurs when your immune system reacts to substances that are ordinarily harmless, such as pollen from trees, grasses or weeds. Nearly 18 million adults struggle with hay fever, according to the CDC, which can be triggered by either seasonal or year-round allergens.

Despite its name, hay fever is rarely triggered by hay, but rather by pollen, fungal or mold spores, dust mites, pet dander or cockroaches. And while it causes an array of bothersome allergy symptoms like nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes, it does not result in a fever.

For some, the symptoms of hay fever are merely annoying. For others, however, hay fever can make going about your daily routine very difficult, particularly if you’re very allergic to pervasive elements in your environment, like pollen or dust mites.

If you fall into this latter category, you’ll be happy to know that Sinol-M, the hot pepper nose spray described above, appears to be safe and very effective at easing allergic symptoms, and it should be available in the United States in March 2009, with no prescription needed since it’s a homeopathic treatment.

Why Hot Peppers May Ease Your Allergies

Hot peppers contain a substance called capsaicin, the component that gives the peppers their heat and spice, and also acts as the active ingredient in Sinol-M. For starters, capsaicin may help your stuffed up nose or congested lungs by stimulating secretions that help clear mucus.

Capsaicin also fights inflammation, which may help ease the tissue inflammation that often occurs with allergies.  

This potent pepper substance is actually useful for much more than just allergies, and research has linked it to:

More Natural Treatments for Hay Fever

You may be tempted to take an over-the-counter antihistamine, decongestant or other drug to get rid of allergy symptoms, but there are other more healthy options that will address not only the symptoms but also the underlying cause.

1. Strengthen your immune system: Eliminate or limit sugars and grains from your diet, as detailed in my nutrition plan and even more in-depth in my book Take Control of Your Health.

2. Exercise: The rate of hay fever among inactive kids is more than double that of healthier, more active youngsters, so regular exercise is an important tool to help prevent allergies from forming in the first place.

3. Address your emotional stress: The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is one profoundly simple, inexpensive and effective tool to address the underlying emotional traumas that can devastate your immune system and allow allergies to flourish.

4. Get plenty of animal-based omega-3 fat: The omega-3 fat in fish oil and krill oil helps reduce both allergic and inflammatory response.

5. Optimize your vitamin D levels. Healthy amounts of vitamin D can also help to lower inflammation.

6. Take a high-quality probiotic. Good bacteria (probiotics) may help lower levels of an antibody that produces allergy symptoms while raising levels of a different antibody, called IgG, that may play a protective role against allergic reactions.

7. Consider an air purifier for your home, to help remove airborne allergens.
