From an Ayurvedic point of view allergens such as pollen, dust, dander, hay fever etc trigger symptoms in susceptible people, they are not the main cause but instead the accumulation of ama (toxins).
Ama is the sticky, toxic residue that comes from a less-than-ideal diet coupled with inadequate digestion.

The heat of August is starting to take it’s toll on drying us out. Yes, it’s true….but pears and cucumbers can assist us.
Pears are ripe and ready to be enjoyed in August. Their demulcent qualities soothe and coat an inflamed digestive tract. A tall glass of this fresh juice will freshen the mind too, adding a splash of cool to a heated mood.
Through the Ayurvedic lens, raw honey has many benefits including scraping fat and cholesterol from the body’s tissues making it the “go to” sweetener for kapha or anyone trying to reduce kapha in their body. However, eating a jar of honey is not going to create weight loss…Ayurveda is about balance so let moderation be your guide.
Ayurveda cautions that heating honey above 108 degrees F will render it toxic at the cellular level which could cause blockage of subtle energetic channels.
Today we know that when honey is heated its molecular structure changes; it coagulates and becomes sticky. This sticky glue-like substance can clog mucous membranes and arteries leading to cellular toxicity.
Buying and consuming local honey can help with allergies.
