Feel better without medication

Around 20 percent of the European population suffers from pollinosis, an allergy to pollen. This percentage will probably rise to 50 percent within a few decades. Many who suffer from daily allergic reactions use medication. “But there are various natural remedies that many people don’t know of,” says Nina Simons. She made a short film with tips to cut down on medicine use. Did you know that simply putting Vaseline under your nose could help? That wearing large sunglasses can prevent your eyes from itching? And that there is a special trap to determine which pollen is actually in the air? Nina has designed a fascinating scene of scale models to present the story; perfect for a doctor’s waiting room, the Pollen News website, or even TV.
