Ah-Choo! Allergy Season Is On Its Way…Be Prepared!
Sniffles. Runny noses. Itchy coughs. Do you recognize any of these in your daily life when spring rolls around? They are key indicators that seasonal allergies are taking over, and trust us as fellow sufferers, it is not fun.
Though there are medicines that can be taken to aid with the allergies, there’s a few tips you can follow naturally to help yourself out! Below we’ve put together a list of 4 pointers to follow this pollen-infused time of the year.
Foods To Avoid
Sometimes, your body can confuse certain foods with common allergies. This happens since some foods have similar proteins to those found in your allergy-inducing substances. Two examples of these are the below:
+Celery, associated with grass allergies
+Watermelon, can be confused with ragweed allergies
Foods To Eat Up
On the other hand, there are some foods that ease the symptoms of allergies. Some examples of these are:
+ Strawberries/Kiwi, great for their Vitamin C potency
+ Alaskan Salmon, since it has a high Omega-3 content
Clean Your Home Like Crazy!
If you’re struggling with seasonal allergies, it’s a good practice to clean your house thoroughly. Make sure to dust, vaccuum, and swiffer as often as you can. Removing any pollen that has found its way inside is a key prevention tactic to relieve your symptoms!
Please note: These are tips for mild-light seasonal allergies, and are in no way cures. If you’re experiencing allergies, as always, we suggest seeing a physician before starting any new wellness routine and getting expert help.
