My alternate/energy dr recommended lavender oil -must be doTerra for its pure quality, no other chemicals.  Put 3 drops in water and drink before bed.  I tried that for a few days and found it really hard to swallow being so potent, so instead I rub a few drops into my skin and symptoms are much relieved.  Beats leaving the country for 6 months of the year when it's hot.
