5 Things That May Help Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal Allergies

What is a Seasonal Allergy?

According to the National Library of Medicine, an "allergy is described as an exaggerated response from the body’s immune system to otherwise inert substances present in the environment." 

What Causes Seasonal Allergies?

Seasonal allergies can occur when you breathe in something you are allergic to in your environment. The American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology shares that certain plants pollinate in spring, summer and fall which can trigger an allergic response. Aside from seasonal pollen, other environmental allergies may be caused by: 

  • dust mites

  • pet dander

  • mold 

What are the Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies?

Symptoms of seasonal allergies can vary from mild to severe and can include sneezing, postnasal drip, watery and itchy eyes, headache, wheezing, coughing, and fatigue. 

‍5 Things That May Help Seasonal Allergies‍

1. Avoidance

By keeping your car windows rolled up, windows shut at home, and changing your clothes after spending time outdoors, you can minimize your interaction with environmental substances that may trigger an allergic response.

2. Quercetin

Quercetin may be able to prevent immune cells from releasing histamines, the chemicals that cause allergic reactions. Due to this, a 2016 study suggests that quercetin may be used in the treatment of allergic disorders.

3. Probiotics

For adults with rhinitis, asthma, and atopic dermatitis, probiotics may help reduce the duration and morbidity of allergy symptoms, according to research on the prevention and treatment of allergies published in 2021. The studies focused on Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium spp., and it's important to note that the studies emphasized the need for patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle and gut microbiome, since these factors influenced positive results. ‍

4. Clean Your Home

If you have seasonal allergies, it's possible that indoor allergens could worsen your symptoms. Apart from allergic rhinitis, dust mite allergies can also lead to asthma and eczema. Furthermore, during spring, you could be bringing outdoor pollen into your home from the soles of your shoes. To minimize allergens in your home, consider removing your shoes before entering your home and frequently dusting, vacuuming and washing your sheets.

5. Therapies

IV Drip Therapy menus have several options for allergy relief that may boost immunity and promote general wellness.

Red Light Therapy may help reduce runny nose, nasal blockages and inflammation while optimizing sleep to allow you to better recover. 

Infrared Sauna may help reduce inflammation, itchiness and nasal congestion while increasing energy and recovery through improved circulation.

Start Feeling Better Sooner

During the last three decades, respiratory allergies have been rapidly increasing worldwide, according to the National Library of Medicine. These therapies, in conjunction with avoidance and ongoing allergy management tailored to your lifestyle, may be able to provide you with relief.
