Uncontrollable sneezing, headache, itchy eyes and fatigue. Many of us have experienced these dreaded allergy symptoms usually around spring and summer. However, some allergies can last all-year round!
The most common allergy triggers in autumn are ragweed and mould. Dust mites and pet hair bother us in winter and of course, grass and flower pollen wreak havoc in the spring and summer months. Only those who suffer from allergies can truly understand the discomfort and debilitation this may cause. Fortunately there is GOOD NEWS!
Although you cannot control the environmental and seasonal factors where you live, rainfall, humidity and changing weather conditions influence your body’s reaction when exposed to allergens. By understanding the root cause of allergies and the allergy-immune system connection we can hope to find comfort from pestering symptoms.
So how do allergies occur in the first place? Simply put, allergy symptoms strike when your immune system overreacts to an external substance. This causes a release of antibodies to attack what it thinks is a “dangerous” invader. This reaction is more likely to occur when and if the immune system is weakened.
Rather than reaching for the antihistamines for relief (which only suppresses the symptoms for a couple of hours), why not try the tips below to help strengthen and balance the immune system, naturally.
By taking preventative measures and ensuring you have a strong immune system, you’ll be sneezing less in no time!
