My mother is on high blood pressure medication and is wondering what she can do or take (naturally) to help relieve allergies. She will not do a sinus rinse. Anyone have anything else to offer?
Please let me know.

Tell her to try using a netty pot 2-6X daily. Yes, it is a nasal rinse, but works great! She'll get used to it. I use Flonase 2X daily too.

Just wondering- why exactly is she refusing the nasal rinses (Netty Pots)? They work wonders for 1. initial clearing out of the sinus passages 2. Have a soothing effect not achieved by po drugs/pills 3. neutralize the entire sinus cavity pH to keep allergy symptoms less bothersome, or better, nonexistent.

Only takes five minutes to complete. Yes, there's alot of nose blowing between the rinsing, but so what. The final effect is well worth it.

A good whiff of pepper spray will clean out those sinuses right quick.

LI-4, LI-11 and LI-20 are typical points for Sinus/Allergies related. However, she may have other issues too and better see an acupuncturist.
Allergies may be related to sugar, milk and artificial chemicals such as coloring, splenda, hydrogenated oil, etc.

stop shopping stuff from the center fo the supermarket, focus on the perimeter, consume green stuff for 2 weeks, expect major changes.
