Spring is here, and so are the seasonal allergies. It’s time to take action and prevent spring allergy symptoms such as runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing and itchy nose.
Allergies are responses generated by the immune system to a particular food, inhalant airborne substance or chemical. Spring is the time of year that we normally think of when it comes to allergies.
As the trees start to bloom and the pollen gets airborne, people begin the inconvenient ritual of sniffling and sneezing. Each year, 35 million Americans feel the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever.
The biggest allergy trigger is pollen, as tiny grains released into the air by trees, grasses, and weeds get into the nose, stimulating the immune system to react in various ways such as sneezing. The immune system reacts to every single foreign invader, including dust, mold and any other particles in the air.
There is no cure for seasonal allergies but there are several ways to minimize the effects and reactions. First, you may want to start with a big spring clean up. It’s the perfect time to clean up your house because removing dust can tremendously reduce your allergies. Don’t forget to clean up your car, your desk at work and any place you spend time on a daily basis.
In addition, supplements to build up the immune system generally produce great results. Some products are made specifically for immune defense and can significantly reduce symptoms like runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes.
Airborne allergens can trigger asthma, a condition in which the airways narrow, making breathing difficult and leading to coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
