One of our natural ways to fight the pollen is to use a saline rinse to flush the pollen from the inside of our nasal passages using a neti pot. This is a simple method that has been used in India for thousands of years. Just follow the instructions that come with the neti pot; there is a slight learning curve, but it is actually very easy. If you have young children you can use saline drops in their noses to accomplish the same thing.
I have been running the air conditioning rather than opening the windows; both in my house and in the car. Anything to avoid coming into contact with the pollen.
As a last resort you may need to use a antihistamine. Drugs such as Zyrtec, and Zicam can be expensive. Try some of the older drugs such as Benadryl and Chlortrimeton to save some money.
We are the first to suffer here in Florida, but be prepared if you are further north, it's coming your way soon.
