It's not easy to start the spring season without suffering from allergies...
I know it myself: sneezing a lot, runny or stuffy nose, ear congestion, itchy sinuses, throat, or ear canals, headaches, teary eyes...
I've learned with the years that I can prevent these annoying feeling naturally, after searching for medical help. It wasn't my best option, because I didn't find something to help me long term.
I really don't wanted to get to have asthma or other health problems, so l don't want you to suffer from these allergies. Let's see what are the allergies causes and how to prevent them.
Your immune system defends your body from invaders like bacteria and viruses. But when it makes war on substances it shouldn't, that’s an allergy.
An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The substances that cause allergic reactions are allergens. When someone has allergies, their immune system makes an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies respond to allergens. The symptoms that result are an allergic reaction.
We all know hat we can't live in a bubble, but at least we can try to avoid what we know that affects us.
Trees are responsible for most springtime seasonal allergies.
Avoid your allergens. This is very important but not always easy. Some allergens are easier to avoid than others. When you can’t avoid an allergen, try to reduce your contact with it.
Stay on a sleep schedule. Stick to a daily bedtime and rise time, even on weekends. Getting less than six hours of sleep can set off migraines that will weaken the immune system and you will be more predisposed to allergies.
Wash your bedding in very hot water at least once a week. During the day, you may have contact to different allergens without even knowing. They get stuck on clothes, skin, hair without any sign.
Get rid of carpets is the first thing that you have to do when spring comes.If you suffer from allergies all the time, then you should think twice about having carpets in your house.
Use a dehumidifier to reduce excess moisture. Using a dehumidifier stops mold growth by reducing the moisture in your air and keeping your home’s overall humidity under control. To eliminate and prevent mold indoors, use your dehumidifier to maintain a humidity level between 45 and 50%.
With all above been said, now it's time to learn how to treat your allergies naturally.
Having a healthy lifestyle will decrease the chances to get a spring allergy, so this is the first thing that you must have in mind.
You should start by detoxifying your body with fruits and vegetables and start drinking more water than usual.
Here are exact anti-allergy plan that I have followed:
2. Drink at least 2 liters of water daily. Hydrate like it’s your job. That sounds simple, right? You’d be surprised how many people are dehydrated!
And, the side effects of being dehydrated are immense. It can cause you to be moody, make you hungrier, and make it harder to lose weight. Being dehydrated can make you tired and make it difficult for you to get a full night’s rest. It can cause headaches, breakouts, and bloating. And, it can heighten any allergy symptoms you’re experiencing.
3. Limit your time outdoors as much as you can. Avoid crowded places and places with a rich fauna.
4. Eat bee pollen and honey.Like honey, bee pollen contains the natural substances where the bees live. It offers an alternative way to introduce these substances into your immune system. Because sometimes we all want to add a little variety to out diets.
5. Use acupuncture.Acupuncture treats a wide variety of health issues, including depression, digestive issues, pain, muscle weakness, and immune deficiency. And, as a study in the European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology reveals, it can help naturally reduce allergy symptoms.
6. Exercise but do it at a gym or if you exercise outdoors, consider doing so in the early morning or late afternoon when pollen counts are lower.
7. Don't hang laundry outside — pollen can stick to sheets and towels.I love to do this, but on the spring season, I'm avoiding it as I know what bad effects it can have on me.
8. Close doors and windows at night or any other time when pollen counts are high.
If you have bad seasonal allergies, your doctor may recommend that you have skin tests or blood tests to find out exactly what allergens trigger your symptoms. Testing can help determine what steps you need to take to avoid your specific triggers and identify which treatments are likely to work best for you.
The immune system is incredibly complex. Each individual is unique. And the immune system proves that. Trying to navigate the subtle needs of your own unique system can sometimes be overwhelming, but it may worth the try!
