Whether it’s hay fever, a food allergy or a skin reaction, suffering from allergies can be an absolute nightmare to deal with. With a high pollen count expected in the UK at the end of April, if you’re desperate to stop allergic symptoms to hay fever and prevent other allergies, I’ve found your saviour. You can thank me in advance…
Medinose Plus, made by Medisana uses photo therapy to ease typical allergic symptoms from anything to hay fever and house dust mites. I also find it helps with skin irritation (in my case, a recent skin reaction to eating certain foods).
I’ll admit that it looks like something out of a sci-fi film but trust me, it’s a keeper. At first I was a bit sceptical about using it because I couldn’t believe a small device like this could help with my hay fever. Usually, when I begin to notice the symptoms, I have to start my routine of taking anti-histamines until the problem goes away. Not any more.
Medinose Plus inhibits the release of histamine (an organic compound involved in local immune responses) without any side effects. To use it, insert the two diodes into your nostrils (one in each) and switch it on. Each session lasts approximately five minutes.
The lights go up when you’re using it, telling you how far into your session you are. It’s an added bonus that you’ll look SUPER awesome with two glowing red diodes up your nose. Ok, maybe not but the important thing to remember is that this actually works.
The red light slows down the body’s immune system’s reaction and reduces allergic symptoms. It can be used 2-3 times a day depending on symptoms. Once your time is up, Medinose Plus automatically switches itself off. I love that it’s portable too, it comes with a plastic box to protect it.
