TLDR
This study found a high prevalence of herbal treatment usage for the relief of allergic rhinitis symptoms in Turkey.
Complementary therapy in allergic rhinitis
TLDR
Of all the CAM therapies examined to treat allergic Rhinitis, some herbal therapies and antioxidants demonstrate a trend toward some clinical efficacy, but researchers have yet to determine how to integrate these CAM modalities into the general treatment paradigm of allergic rhinitis.
Therapeutic effect of topical administration of red onion extract in a murine model of allergic rhinitis
TLDR
It can be assumed that the topical application of onion extract regulates allergic symptoms by suppressing the type-1 helper and type-2 helper responses and reducing the allergic inflammatory reaction.
Role of bromelain in the treatment of patients with pityriasis lichenoides chronica
TLDR
Bromelain can be considered an effective therapeutic option for PLC; its efficacy could be related to its anti‐inflammatory, immunomodulatory and/or anti‐viral properties.
Nettle extract (Urtica dioica) affects key receptors and enzymes associated with allergic rhinitis
TLDR
Bioactives have been identified in nettle that contribute to the inhibition of pro‐inflammatory pathways related to allergic rhinitis through the use of DART TOF‐MS, which yields exact masses and relative abundances of compounds present in complex mixtures.
Significance of nutrition in respiratory allergic diseases: a review of scientific knowledge.
TLDR
Despite epidemiological and some clinical evidence of a protective antioxidant effect against the development of respiratory allergies, interventional studies mainly have not confirmed significant benefit of antioxidant supplementation therapy.
