Most allergy sufferers will stop at nothing to combat the itchy eyes and runny nose associated with nature's allergens. And while over-the-counter or prescription medications are often a short term solution to stifle symptoms, a more natural and ancient option exists.

Honey has been a long-time remedy for those annoying seasonal allergies that keep sufferers from enjoying beautiful springtime blossoms. But before you head to the honey aisle of the grocery store read on, because not just any honey will combat your sniffles and sneezes.

If you want allergy relief in Kailua-Kona, you need to scout out raw unpasteurized honey rather than your commercial brands. In fact, store-bought honey should be avoided at all costs. A majority of it is imported from places like China and India and is contaminated with dangerous heavy metals and illegal antibiotics.

Most of it is not inspected before it reaches store shelves and there's a good chance what you're eating isn't even the real stuff. In most cases all of the beneficial bee pollen has been removed and replaced with additives, fillers and sweeteners. So even though it's packaged in those cute bear-shaped bottles, the "honey" lurking inside is anything but cute.

Instead, you'll want to visit your local farmer's market. Raw unpasteurized honey in its unadulterated form can be the allergy-fighter you've been searching for. This natural product is comprised of pollens and allergens that are local to the area. These are the same allergens that keep you sniffling and sneezing. With repeated exposure to the very stuff that tickles your throat and waters your eyes, your body has the ability to build up its own immunity over time.

This pure golden syrup is loaded with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and anti-viral properties and can even be applied topically to skin wounds and burns. Raw honey is also noted to lower and stabilize blood sugar levels and can even be a safe source of sugar, in moderation, for diabetics.

The recommended daily does of raw, unpasteurized local honey is 1 teaspoon 2 times a day. This regimen should be started at least one month before seasonal allergies come into bloom.

Note: Do not give honey to children under 2 years of age.
