‘Tis the season for seasonal allergies. If you are one of the many that suffer, we feel you! It’s not a cute situation by any means. Allergies come in all forms and all severities, luckily there are a bunch of natural ways to reduce your symptoms and get some relief. Allergies are due to hypersensitivity of the immune system that cause damaging responses that can affect the whole body. Some of the most common causes of allergies? Things like pollen found outdoors, animal fur, dust or particular foods.
Allergy symptoms occur when your body responds to allergens by producing a chemical called histamine, which works by helping to counteract the allergen. The immune system causes allergic reactions by producing immunoglobulin antibodies that cause widespread symptoms.
We are well aware that many pop antihistamines like Claritin and Reactin on the daily but those over the counter meds aren’t a proper solution. Those kinds of medications wreak havoc on your gut and in turn cause your immune system to be weaker, making it a bit of a vicious cycle. We prefer to go the natural route and have seen incredible results with our own allergies.
Before we get into the supplements it’s important to mention that doing a good cleaning of your home after the winter season can be really beneficial. Clean your carpets, place your pillows into the dryer to cleanse and add some tea tree oil into your laundry detergent to kill bacteria.
