Treatment for Allergies

Spring is here! That means pollen is just outside your door. So, what can you do to protect yourself from sneezing, congestion, cough and runny eyes while avoiding nasty side effects of allergy medications?

Here are some of the best, all-natural, easy-to-implement tips that we have found.

  1. Support Your Immune System
    Supplement with Probiotics and of course, Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C to give your immune system the support it needs to combat allergens and the histamine that leads to a runny nose and excess mucus.
  2. Avoid Allergens
    It sounds obvious, but a great way to avoid allergy symptoms is to avoid seasonal allergens. To minimize the time you spend suffering through allergies:

    • Keep the doors and windows of your house and car closed
    • Run the air conditioner on “recirculate” so that you are not bringing in pollen-riddled outside air
    • If you are outside for an extended period of time, shower and change clothes as soon as you return indoors… Sending all that pesky pollen down the drain.
    • Same goes for pets…. Pollen can come indoors on pet fur and be deposited all around your home. Try to bathe Fido more often than usual during allergy season. Or, at least keep him off the furniture.
    • Leave your shoes at the door during pollen season… No sense in tracking allergens inside.
    • Limit your time outdoors when pollen counts are highest.
  3. Watch Your Diet
    During allergy season, inflammation can occur while your body is fending off antigens and your digestive system can be sensitive. Do your best to minimize your intake of foods that may result in inflammation, like sugary treats, fried foods and anything that’s been processed and packaged. Keep a food diary to help pinpoint any flare ups… Remember to read those labels! Unhealthy ingredients can lurk in seemingly “healthy” foods.
  4. Try Acupuncture
    This traditional practice in Chinese medicine has quite the following. With acupuncture, very fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body to rebalance energy and, according to some, minimize allergy symptoms.
  5. Rinse Away Allergens In Your Nasal Passages
    Mix a half teaspoon or table salt into lukewarm water to dissolve. With your head over the sink and slightly tilted to one side, put the solution in a cupped hand and spill into one nostril, allowing it to drain out the other. Then repeat on the other side, tilting in the opposite direction. When finished, gently blow out of each nostril to clear them completely.Although a little messy, this is a great way to rid your nasal passages of intruders.

While none of these options is an instant fix, when used together they can make allergy season a little more bearable and can be a suitable treatment for allergies.
