Natural Solutions for Spring Allergies


Springtime Allergies Knocking at Your Door?

Excitement for spring flowers and leaves on the trees is dampened for those of us with pollen allergies.

Pollen can trigger days (or months) of sneezing, stuffy noses; watery, itchy eyes; and fatigue-producing headaches.

On the other hand, the medications available to address allergy symptoms can cause drowsiness, foggy-brain, and dryness.

Because I was a long-time allergy sufferer, I’ve tried every possible natural therapy to reduce the annoying symptoms. I’m excited to say I can now enjoy the spring without allergies! I want to share with you exactly what I do to stop allergies in their tracks.

8 Ways to Reduce Allergies Naturally:

  • Use an air filter in your bedroom and house (and/or change the filters). Even though the pollen is outside, it can still affect you when you are inside. Check out AlenCorp or IQAir for filters.
  • Avoid food allergens, especially dairy products. We can send you a test to identify your food allergens; order it here.
  • Take plant-based products* that are naturally anti-histamines, such as hesperidin (HMC), quercetin, vitamin C, and nettles. You can find them in my online store separately or in combination, such as in a product called D-Hist or a chewable form called AllerDMG.
  • Take anti-inflammatory fats, herbs and enzymes including omega 3 fats (in nuts & fish oil), bromelain, and turmeric/curcumin.
  • Use a natural nasal spray that blocks histamine. My favorite is Nasal Crom.
  • Support healthy digestion and address yeast if needed. If you are experiencing digestive issues, they could be related to your allergy symptoms. Let’s meet for a consultation to address this, but it often starts with digestive enzymes, probiotics and berberine.
  • Address your adrenal health. When you’ve been under a lot of stress, cortisol (stress hormone made by your adrenal glands) can be either too high or too low, both of which can increase allergies. Let’s find out how your adrenals are doing and support them back to health. Read more here.

I just heard from a patient who came to see me to help her with allergies three years ago…

At that time she asked for help to decrease her springtime allergies, and the subsequent sinus infections and pneumonia she would get every year. Now, she reported that this is the first year she did not get pneumonia. It was not an easy path to change her diet and to take supplements on a regular basis, but she did it, and it changed her health. I’m so happy for her!

Won’t it be wonderful to enjoy the outdoors without sneezing all day? Please share your thoughts below.

I was interviewed for an article about addressing spring allergies in the Huffington Post – you can read it here.

Happy spring to each of you!

*Please keep in mind that any and all supplements—nutrients, herbs, enzymes, or other—should be used with caution. My recommendation is that you seek the care of a naturopathic doctor (with a doctorate degree from a federally-accredited program) and that you have a primary care physician or practitioner whom you can contact to help you with individual dosing and protocols. If you ever experience negative symptoms after taking a product, stop taking it immediately and contact your doctor right away.

We get so accustomed to stress exposure that it becomes just a part of everyday life. We don't even notice it anymore, like a fish and its fishbowl.
