Five Ways to Alleviate Allergy Symptoms Naturally
Itchy eyes, constant sneezing, a runny nose: sure signs that allergy season is here! The higher the pollen count, the more miserable it feels.
If you’re looking for relief from seasonal allergy symptoms without an over-the-counter fix that can come with adverse side effects, we’re sharing our go-to ways to support your symptoms. It’s important to get to the root cause and understand what you’re allergic to and why you’re suffering, but these natural remedies can help alleviate discomfort quickly.
Antronex: This whole foods supplement supports the liver’s normal detoxification mechanisms as well as the body’s natural immune system function. It can knock out symptoms at the first sign! You can order Antronex here (or call our office to order). And be sure to take it with food.
Allerplex: Another great whole foods supplement, Allerplex provides vitamin A and supports the body’s ability to handle environmental challenges and helps maintain healthy mucous membranes. Vitamin A is vital in liver function, and is an integral part of the mucus layer of both the respiratory tract and the intestine. You can order Allerplex here (or call our office to order), and be sure to take it with food.
Immune support: In addition to a regular supplement regimen, there are many things you can do to support your immune health. Manage your stress levels, move your body in ways that feel good, and nourish yourself through your food choices. More than 70 percent of your immune system is housed in your gut, so be sure to eat nutritious foods like organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats. Stay away from sugar, caffeine and alcohol to support your body and prevent inflammation that can negatively impact your immune system and liver, which can make allergies worse.
Clean air: Your environment plays a huge role in your health, and when it comes to allergies, pollen, dust and mold in your home can cause issues. Use a HEPA air filter or purifier to remove problematic particles and keep your air clean.
Neti pot: If you’re experiencing seasonal allergies, a neti pot can help rinse out pollen and allergens that are agitating your nasal passages and provide relief. Be sure to use distilled water (not tap) and always clean and dry it after use. We recommend using a ceramic neti pot, instead of plastic, so that it’s free of harmful toxins!
