It sounds like you're doing all the right things, jeanie. Great to do the neti pot! I remember my chiropractor in NYC always said that allergies occur when the adrenal glands are overloaded, so maybe looking into finding some sort of adrenal support would be helpful. I know he had a line of homeopathic remedies for this. I'm not sure about nettles, but I do use mullein tea, which I think is probably similar. Just putting some leaves and steeping in hot water for a few minutes, or you can get it in droplets. It's also helpful to stay away from wheat and dairy, if you're not already, as those tend to exacerbate mucous production. I'm sure vitamin C and maybe some echinacea and goldenseal wouldn't hurt either. Hope you're better soon--my mom really suffers during goldenrod season also!
