The Arrival of Allergy Season

The grass is getting greener, the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and my spouse is hacking and coughing. That’s right, it’s allergy season. I pat my spouse's back sympathetically as I watch him stagger blearily to the medicine cabinet to gulp down anti-histamine. He’s not alone. According to Women’s Health Magazine, there are “40 million Americans who are suffering from seasonal allergy symptoms brought on by pollen and mold spores that bloom with warmer, wetter weather” every year. The great news is there are a couple of basic steps you can take to help lessen or even avoid the appearance of your symptoms. This is where I found the article: http://naturesbalance.com/natural-relief-from-allergy/

 

Omega-3 sources

First of all, try adding foods like walnuts, flaxseed, and seafood to your diet. These foods are wealthy in essential omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have anti-inflammatory properties that help to calm allergy inflammation.


Spice it up

Women’s Health Magazine suggests adding spicy foods to your diet because they help to “decongest your sinuses, increase circulation, and clear away head-clogging mucus.” You’ve most likely noticed these impact yourself when you bite into a particularly spicy jalapeno. You may also try adding chili peppers and cayenne to your meals.


Get out the duster

Interestingly enough, almost half of the dust we find inside our houses comes from outside. This means you are tracking those nasty little allergens in with you on the bottom of your feet. Invest in a doormat and reduce the dust by 10-25%. Take off your shoes altogether before coming inside for even better impact. Can’t avoid the allergens? Be proactive. AllergyRelief101.com suggests, ““Take anti-histamine] an hour or two ahead of time. This can allow [it] to be circulating inside your system, in advance of your exposure, and can reduce or eliminate the resulting response.”
