I found that for my recently-acquired summer allergies (have had them for the last few years), eating local honey really helps. I once read it in a natural health book; then went to a local honey farm and made sure that the bees collected pollen from local vegetation. I bought some honey and had a couple tea spoons in my tea (and sometimes plain, because I love it churned). In about a week, my allergies had completely disappeared. I couldn't even fly a kite in a field before because I would just swell up and sneeze all over. I haven't had an allergic reaction to pollen ever since.
