A Holistic Look at Seasonal Allergies

Why do some of us succumb to seasonal allergies and some of us do not? Or maybe some of us are experiencing symptoms for the first time.

Here are a few reasons why:

External reasons you may be suffering from allergies

  • Mold or pollen types
  • Worse some years than others
  • Climate and humidity may activate more or less spores, pollens etc

Internal Reasons (its you…)

  • Adrenal and Stress Levels
  • Your personal mold and bacteria level
  • Medication overload
  • Imbalanced blood sugar
  • Excess Coffee Tea Alcohol Sugar consumption
  • Overall Poor Digestion and Gut Environment
  • Heredity and the above finally triggered the genetic reaction
  • Lung Congestion/ Weakness due to the above
  • Chemical and heavy metal or toxin exposure
  • Various health disorders
  • Liver Congestion
  • Dehydration
  • Poor or lack of sleep
  • Previous Infections viral or otherwise still subliminally present

  • Relax and pace yourself during the change of season…
  • Arnica 30c twice to three times daily to avoid gardener’s aches and pains or for the overzealous golfer, cyclist, hiker, canoeist, etc.
  • Curcumin for the same…

Are you sensitive to smoke? Is it lungs, throat, eyes?

  • Protect yourself by wearing a mask and reducing exposure to heavy particulate days.
  • Wear glasses to shield eyes from pollen and particulate.
  • Clean out your lungs with excellent herbal formulas and tonics from my office
  • Build your adrenals (they are responsible for supporting and creating natural anti-inflammatories and antihistamines in our body)
  • Take plenty of Vitamin C, Zinc, B Complex and Magnesium which also restore vital and sensitive lung tissue.

**Intravenous (IV) Vitamin nutrients and minerals will quickly top up your levels and have a calming effect on the body’s sense of panic or anxiety that you may experience due to depletion and exposure to allergens, stress and fatigue.
