Tips to control Seasonal allergies
Seasonal allergies are type I, hyper sensitivity reactions where the body overreacts when exposed to allergens in the air (pollen, rag weeds, animal dander, Etc.), This occurs in the spring with the trees blooming, in the summer with grass and weeds and in the fall with rag weeds.
The main cause of seasonal allergies revolves around dairy product consumption, depressed immune system and a poor lymphatic drainage system.
There are many symptoms that point to the condition such as runny nose, teary eyes, nasal congestion, nasal obstruction, sneezing, hives, itchy dry skin, skin blotches, headaches, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue and tiredness. Some of these symptoms are blamed on deviated nasal septum, food allergies, lactose intolerance and colds. However, differential diagnosis proves otherwise.
Diet is the best method of prevention and most people should avoid dairy products completely and yes this includes chocolate. Surprised..?
Natural treatments at home may use alternate hot and cold compresses for nasal or frontal sinuses and take hypoallergenic remedies before the allergy season starts, allergyx, Urtica Dioca, Fish Oil, Vit C and additional therapy of intravenous support bags would help strengthen the body’s immune system.
To reduce symptoms, start your remedies before the season starts, refrain from dairy products consumption before the allergy season starts, avoid histamine releasing food.
