How can I get rid of nose allergies (sneezing, runny nose) without the use of medication?

Two things: Allergy injections can change your immune system so that you become less allergic, and less likely to react to your allergens. The only other way to do this is to get skin tested by an allergist to find out exactly what is causing your symptoms, and take steps to avoid exposure to these allergens in your environment.

You can try using a neti pot to "wash out" the allergens you breath in, used regularly it can help, be sure to boil the water you use and then let it cool.
