Vitamins/herbal supplements Allergy shots have been proven to be effective against pollen and common allergy agents, some have suggested consuming local honey can also be effective.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
