Seasonal allergies often come with sneezing, coughing, and runny noses, but this year they'll also come with a hefty dose of side-eye. While numbers are going down, COVID-19 is still around and many locations still require folks to wear masks. Not only is sneezing into a mask an unpleasant physical experience between the wet mask and the smell, but you will likely be the recipient of some disapproving looks or even comments.
As someone with airway problems (I'll talk about those in a future post), I promise you can feel the negativity directed your way when you cough in a public space these days. But you don't have to deal with the symptoms of seasonal allergies or the disdain that can come with them.
There are A LOT of ways to alleviate seasonal allergies, but everyone is different so it's less about what works best for everyone and more about what works best for you personally.
Here are some things we can do in the office to help with your allergies:
Acupuncture (read more)
Address immune dysfunction
Targeted supplementation for nutritional deficiencies (shop for supplements here)
Help heal your leaky gut
What can you do for relief at home?
Drink nettle tea
Use a neti pot
Apply nasosympatico oil blend to your nostrils (can be purchased at the office)
Use raw local honey from within 50 miles of your location
Change your air filter
Regularly wash your bedding & clothes - they can hold onto dust, dander & pollen
But what about when you're out and about?
A face mask can help block pollen, dander, and dust
