Seasonal Allergy Relief

Throughout the year many of us suffer from seasonal allergies. Our bodies can react to the trees, grass, weeds and pollen triggering symptoms including:

  • itchy eyes
  • sneezing
  • runny/stuffy nose
  • cough
  • fatigue
  • sore throat

These symptoms can make us miserable for weeks and lead to complications like sinus infections and asthma.

Our office can provide natural ways to help relieve your seasonal allergies symptoms. Studies have found that herbal and dietary supplements such as nettle, quercetin and Vitamin C are able to effectively control seasonal allergy symptoms without the side effects that can occur with many antihistamine drugs. Talk with us before starting any new supplements to make sure it’s appropriate for your symptoms and to get proper dosages.

Simple lifestyle changes can also ease seasonal allergy symptoms. Increasing laundry water temperatures to destroy allergens and dehumidifiers to soften the mucus membranes have been shown to provide relief.

Identifying and avoiding foods you may be sensitive to can help by lowering inflammation and boosting your immune system. Knowing exactly what you are allergic to can help you lessen or prevent exposure and help us effectively treat your reactions. (How do I know if it’s an allergy or a sensitivity?) Let us know if you experience any of the symptoms of seasonal allergies and we will be able to tailor a plan specific to your needs.
