Hay Fever season is just around the corner
THE HAY Fever season is just around the corner. It's time to prepare, no point in waiting for the dreaded symptoms to arrive. There's nothing nice about a runny itchy nose or streaming eyes and constant sneezing. The symptoms vary in intensity from person to person but everyone feels the same: lousy!
You can be sensitive to the pollen from flowers, grass, trees, weeds or shrubs which mean that you could have symptoms all year round. If this is the case you may have been told that you have Perennial Rhinitis. Animal dander and dust may also affect you. Hay Fever is commonly associated with the high pollen count from grass in the summer months.
You can't avoid the pollen unless you live in a sealed house and never venture outside! But you can reduce your sensitivity if you boost your immune system before the season starts.
The best thing you can do to reduce the intensity of your symptoms is to take remedies that include Luffa, Quercetin, Vitamin B5, Vitamin C or Bromelain a couple of weeks before the season starts and continue taking them throughout the season. I have seen some very good results when these remedies are taken in advance.
Many suggest that eating local honey will help reduce the severity of symptoms. Echinacea, Eyebright or Vitamin C can also be taken during the season to reduce symptoms.
The problem is that your body perceives the pollen as a danger to it. Therefore it's important to have a healthy immune system to prevent an overreaction to the exposure of pollen.
If you also have food sensitivities then it's crucial to avoid these foods, this will take the pressure of your immune and digestive system allowing these systems to work more efficiently and help reduce your symptoms during the Hay Fever Season.
You can't avoid pollen but you can reduce your sensitivity to it.
