Allergy season is just around the corner. In fact, you may already be feeling itchy eyes, a scratchy throat, nasal stuffiness and sneezing. Yet, there are more remedies available to combat the inevitable dreaded allergy season beyond the over-the-counter options that are guaranteed to make you fee as if you are in a fog. In fact, there are many effective and natural means to treat illness and allergies that are so prevalent this time of year.
Treatment begins with the understanding that allergic symptoms are the immune system’s unhappy reaction to substances that are normally found, harmlessly, in your everyday environment. Very often, simple changes of diet, nutritional supplements and homeopathic remedies can relieve reactions and the resulting inflammation that triggers most allergy symptoms.
Rather than running to the local drugstore, consider running your local natural health clinic to get an assessment of your environment and the substances that may be at greatest risk to cause the sources of your inflammation. With a thorough understanding of the causes of your suffering, a skilled naturopathic medical practitioner can prescribe the best options to keep you sniffle-free this allergy season.
