Allergy Relief

This weekend allergies invaded our home and family! My poor husband suffered the itchy eyes, headache, nasal congestion and sinus pain all weekend. He took the allergy over the counter medications which offered some relief, but he was still miserable. Although we do take over the counter medication, I prefer to seek out natural remedies for some of our ailments. After doing some research for sinus pain, I came across a Tomato Tea.
The ingredients are:
1 cup - 8oz. tomato juice
1 tsp - raw, chopped garlic
1 - 2 tsp. - lemon juice
cayenne pepper - as much as can be tolerated
a pinch of salt to taste
Heat briefly and sip

This tea is full of vitamin C which is wonderful for the immune system, garlic which is a natural healing food and the cayenne pepper will bring fast relief for nasal congestion.

So, he sipped his tomato tea, rested much of the weekend and is back to the regular schedule of work
