Diet.co.uk recommend adding certain foods to your diet during the hay fever season. This is well worth a read if you have not seen it. Also remember that there is often a cross reaction with pollens and certain foods. For example, if you react to birch pollen, try eliminating apples, carrots, cherries, pears, peaches, plums, fennel, walnut, potato, spinach, wheat, buckwheat, peanuts and honey (from Hayfever, The Complete Guide by Brostoff and Gamlin) while the birch pollen is present in the air. You may find that this will significantly reduce your reactions to the birch pollen.
