See if you can find any local raw honey, it's supposed to help boost your immune system and help fight against allergy symptoms. Try to increase your intake of Omega-3s as well.

Thanks Zereh and GotGarlic. I have done the honey thing. I read about that a while ago. I often take honey and garlic when I'm feeling sick. I figure natural antibiotic and antiseptics are a good call when you're getting a cold. I haven't tried the honey for allergies though. There are lots of good local honey businesses. Apparently Alberta produces a LOT of honey.

I read somewhere that local raw honey added to your neti pot saline is supposed to be a huge help with sinus infections etc. Again, simply can't get past the ick factor. Maybe if I get more desperate...
