I had been suffering from allergies for most of my adult life. Tests at different doctors showed that I was allergic to almost every airborne allergen (95% of most airborne allergens, eek!) I was like a running faucet and sneeze machine. I'd wake up with an itchy nose, start sneezing, and buy boxes of tissues in bulk for wiping my nose. I used to dread the hay fever season. It was a balancing act between sneezing, taking antihistamines, and feeling groggy most of the time.
I started taking 3 glasses of ACV a day. For the first 10 days there was no effect. Then the allergies slowed down, and two weeks after starting on the ACV everything was back to normal - a new "normal" for me. I continued on three glasses a day for the rest of that season. It was a complete life change to be able to enjoy the seasons again. I have found that when apple cider vinegar is taken either as a daily tonic or at the first sign of an allergy (sneezing, sinus headache, itchy or stuffy nose, watery eyes), it completely stops the histamine response or allergic reaction. Nowadays, the allergic reaction usually stops within a couple of hours of taking the first dose of ACV. If I have not been taking the ACV and ignored the allergies for a day or more, then it takes at least a day for the remedy to work. But I try to take ACV most days throughout the year now, because the benefits for my skin, energy and wellbeing are sooo worth it.

Take apple cider vinegar either as a daily tonic or at the first sign of an allergy (dripping nose, watery eyes, sinus headache, etc). Often it will rapidly halt the histamine response or allergic reaction. For thirty years I suffered from hay fever every spring. Constant sneezing, watery itchy eyes. Nowdays I don't even notice it. Sometimes if it is a high-pollen day I may have the odd sneeze, especially if I walk past a flowering tree or a field of grass in flower, but it really is no longer an issue
