Allergies are common in the spring and early summer but many people suffer from allergies in the fall months. The allergy triggers might be slightly different in the fall, but some people feel the same symptoms of allergies such as runny nose, sneezing and itchy eyes. Fall allergies are generally caused by mold, ragweed and dust mites.
Mold is one of the main triggers for fall allergies as its spores can easily get airborne. Mold thrives in damp areas such as piles of leaves in yards and streets and basements and bathrooms at home.
Ragweed is the biggest allergy trigger in the fall. This yellow-flowering weed typically begins pollinating in August but it can linger well into the fall months. Most people who are allergic to spring pollen-producing plants are also allergic to ragweed and its pollen can travel for hundreds of miles on the wind.
Dust mites are another common indoor allergen but are more frequent in summer months. Dust mites continue to make their way into your nose during the fall, triggering sneezes, wheezes, and runny noses.
Understanding allergies is quite simple. When foreign invaders enter the nose, the immune system mistakenly releases antibodies, which attack the allergens, leading to the release of chemicals called histamines into the blood. Histamines trigger the runny nose, itchy eyes.
Homeopathic allergy products are one of the best ways to prevent allergies in the fall. Many people do not feel comfortable taking regular allergy products because of some of the ingredients used.
However, homeopathic supplements for allergy relief work with your body trying to stimulate the natural defenses and are safe to be taken daily.
