As much as I hate to say it, this year is shaping up to be one of the worst ever in terms of allergies.
Dr. John Basso, chief of allergy and immunology at Nyack Hospital in New York explained that the prolonged moisture in some regions this winter may have set the stage for a bad season—a warm, dry spring following a wet winter is a recipe for high pollen counts.
Global warming is considered to be partly responsible too, since the increased carbon dioxide and climate change stimulate pollen growth, making it more prevalent and potent.
Whatever the reason is behind it, you know what lots of pollen means—LOTS of allergy misery for the 60 million or so allergy sufferers in the US!
But the good news is there are ways that you can safely and naturally get relief from your allergy symptoms!
Here are six measures you can try:
Probiotics can be very helpful in combatting both seasonal and year-round allergies for two reasons—they can manufacture enzymes to help your body break down allergens, plus they can help improve your immune function and therefore help tame the “over-reaction” that occurs with allergies.
And for a high quality multi-strain formula that’s up to the allergy challenge, Super Shield
is your ticket.
Super Shield's 13 strains of top-quality, robust bacteria are ready to line your intestinal wall, crowd out harmful bacteria, encourage your immune system to behave, and help your body effectively break down substances you ingest—both food and allergens.
Your diet is the #1 single biggest determining factor of your state of health from head to toe, and allergies are no exception.
First of all, an unhealthy diet of processed foods, refined carbs and soda feeds the harmful, dangerous bacteria in your gut, and eventually they can overcome and "crowd out" your friendly gut flora (which as I mentioned above helps encourage proper immune functioning).
Plus an unhealthy diet encourages acid waste buildup, and that can worsen congestion and mucus--which the typical allergy sufferer already has an abundance of!
The Great Taste No Pain
system will show you how to enjoy tasty, mouth-watering meals made of nutritious real
foods that your body can break down much easier. You'll be pleasantly shocked at how delicious and enjoyable having a healthy diet can be, and can quite possibly see fewer digestive problems in addition to relief from your allergies!
All it takes are a few simple tweaks to the meals you put together and incorporating more of the good stuff in your daily regimen.
3- Put the power of immune-supportive nutrients to work for you
It can make a HUGE difference in how you feel to embrace the power of nutrients that help encourage proper immune responses and counteract the congestion and mucus associated with allergies.
Allergy Factor contains an effective blend of vitamins, minerals, herbs and phytonutrients that help naturally promote healthy immune responses, ease sinus congestion and support healthy nasal passages!
If you’ve got seasonal allergies that are kicking into gear, it may behoove you to skip the synthetic fabrics and stick to cotton clothing.
Synthetic fabrics (like polyester and nylon) can create an electrical charge which can actually attract pollen!
And for people with pollen allergies, that means you can practically feel like you’re lying down in a field of wildflowers every time you get dressed!
Stress can destroy your friendly gut flora and fuel inflammatory responses in your body.
That’s why when you’re under stress you may find yourself getting one sickness after another or suffering digestive problems or having chronic headaches. Your immune system is challenged and inflammation is on the warpath inside of you.
It’s also why many people seem to have allergy flare-ups during stress.
So clearly it’s essential to your health from head to toe to do all you can de-stress
. Do whatever works for you—even taking a brisk walk can help!

6- Wear glasses on high pollen days
Contact lenses may cause pollen and other irritants to be trapped in your eyes, which can ring the alarm for allergy symptoms to flare.
Soft contacts are especially guilty here, as they are more permeable and allow substances like pollen to seep through.
So if you’re a contact lens wearer, it may behoove you to wear your glasses on high pollen days or invest in some daily wear disposable lenses during your tougher allergy flare-up days.
And consider wearing sunglasses when you go outside to help shield your eyes from pollen too.
Allergies continue to cause untold misery for millions...
But when you look at all of the possible factors behind your allergies and take natural measures to help your body tackle the underlying issues, chances are excellent you might see YOUR allergy symptoms greatly subside or possibly diminish altogether.
