Allergy Side Effects

For people suffering from seasonal allergies, allergy side effects can turn the beauty of a spring in bloom to a sufferer’s worst nightmare. Itchy watery eyes and noses that itch and run are often accompanied by irritation of the throat, run down feelings, headaches, and other symptoms that make this wonderful time of year something to dread.

It’s no fun to watch from your window as others enjoy the great outdoors, but medications to treat allergies come with their own laundry list of side effects that can make patients just as miserable as the allergies themselves. Burning sinuses, dry mouth, itchy throat, and drowsiness are just a few of the extras that can come with prescription medications, not to mention the concerns about taking steroid based medications at all. But what is an allergy sufferer supposed to do? Even staying indoors isn’t enough to alleviate the symptoms of many allergy sufferers who long for health and healing.

Thankfully, there are options. A quick search through a solid guide to natural health products will turn up many wonderful antidotes to this all too common problem affecting 1 in 5 people, according to studies. Products aimed at reducing the histamine effect of allergens can reduce or eliminate the common symptoms of itchy, watery eyes and irritated sinuses without making a person feeling like sleeping the day away in a medication induced haze. Through a thoughtfully applied program of holistic wellness, allergy sufferers can enjoy the seasons free of the worry of allergy side effects.

 

A Word from Our In House Expert


dr.-dave-bordered.jpg Dr. Dave States: 
Allergies are typically caused by an immune response due to a weak and over-reactive immune system.  I tell my patients to use natural things like unpasteurized honey from your region and intake of supplements with high probiotic and digestive enzymes such as Pure Encapsulation's Probiotic IMM will help calm and manage the allergies. In general humidity and hydration play a big role with the allergen system.  Another supplement I like to recommend is Protandum. This supplement is effective in the reduction of the free radicals which compromise the immune system.
