"I'm making my own honey, which they say is one way of reducing the symptoms," he explained.

David has been keeping bees since 2020, with the process of putting together a flat-pack beehive during the pandemic documented by his wife Victoria.

Another treatment David could try for his hay fever is acupuncture, which he is already a fan of for exercise recovery. Marmapuncture, a specific type of acupuncture that uses fewer needles, is particularly beneficial for those with hay fever.

Marmapuncture helps with hay fever because your reaction to pollen is an immune response - it’s your body’s way of dealing with an irritant. Acupuncture helps balance the body’s energy system and immune response.
