Easy Steps to an Allergy Free Year
My friends who suffer with allergies have told me that they seem worse this year than ever before. They are right! Some experts believe that the spring allergy season is getting longer. Plants are releasing pollens into the air for a longer period of time and an increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may be causing the plants to emit more pollen. Here in the Midwest, where Susan and I live, trees started releasing pollens in March and kept doing so through April. Grass pollens are taking to the air during May and June.
Here in the U.S., more than 40 percent of our children and 10 to 30 percent of adults are dealing with allergies this spring. Symptoms like itchy, runny nose, red, watering eyes, sneezing and coughing are making lots of folks downright miserable.
Pollen counts are highest in the early morning. While you can’t avoid pollen when you are outdoors, you can pollen-proof your home or office. Keep windows closed, use an air conditioner and try an air purifier, if you have access to one. When you do go outdoors, try wearing an allergy face mask.
The over-the-counter drug industry loves spring allergies. But I have to warn you, these can have harmful side effects and do not address the root causes of your symptoms. What is the root cause of everyone’s allergies? An immune system that is not doing its job. The best way to fight allergies is, of course, avoid exposure to any known allergens. At the same time you can begin to balance your immune system with good foods, plenty of pure water, exercise and good sleep habits. Unfortunately, even if you do make some good lifestyle changes today, your allergies may not improve by tomorrow.
Allergies are actually caused by an over active immune system. That is why I recommend balancing the immune system as opposed to building it. The first step in this balancing act is to make sure you are not deficient in the basic vitamins and minerals your body requires everyday to stay in balance. For this I recommend the INBalance Multi-vitamin dietary supplement. This doctor formulated multi contains all the known essential vitamins and minerals needed on a daily basis.
Just two tablets of INBalance Multi does a whole lot more than cover the nutritional bases. This unique multi also contains additional support for a healthy pancreas to help the body balance blood sugar levels. Balancing blood sugar level is also beneficial when it comes to bringing balance to the immune system. Higher blood sugar levels can contribute to immune imbalance. So when ever blood sugar levels are more balanced, your immune system is also automatically more balanced. This means your body is far less likely to respond aggressively with allergic symptoms. That can make a big difference, especially during the spring and summer seasons.
Remember, INBars are also completely allergen free. They contain absolutely no dairy, soy, wheat, gluten, corn, eggs, nuts or shell fish. One thing you do not need when you are fighting allergic symptoms is to add to the total antigenic load your body is exposed to daily. Avoiding the common food allergens makes balancing your immune system even easier.
Five more tips to help relieve spring allergy symptoms:
1. Try a home remedy. For example, the herbs stinging nettle, and butterbur have anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties. Quercetin, a bioflavonoid found in cayenne pepper, hot ginger, onion and garlic, can also help.
2. Pass on milk. Even if you do not have a milk allergy, dairy products increase mucus production.
3. Irrigate your nose. Use a Neti Pot to pour a warm salt-water solution up your nostrils.
4. Use an air filter. Your symptoms may decrease if you run a HEPA filter running in your bedroom day and night.
5. Don’t sleep or cuddle with your pet until after allergy season. Pet dander may aggravate your spring allergies.
