Many alternative health websites recommend raw local honey claiming it has a similar effect as allergy shots. Some claiming some pretty impressive results.

Although the results of the studies are conflicting, taking a high-quality probiotic is unlikely to cause any problems. If you do try a probiotic don’t expect results overnight. If you try a probiotic and symptoms don’t improve in 3 months it may not be the right probiotic, or simply may not help your allergies.
