STEAM BATHS EASE ALLERGIES

Jul 10, 2018 11:08AM
Researchers from Thailand had 64 people suffering from hay fever (allergic rhinitis) experience half­hour steam baths three times a week for four weeks. Half received baths without herbs; the other half's baths were enhanced with herbs such as lemongrass and ginger. The two treatments equally lowered the symp­toms such as sneezing, nasal itching, and nasal congestion, but that tak­ing the herbal baths reported greater satisfaction with their treatment.
