Spring with its colorful riot of flowers and birds is finally here. But it is a hell this otherwise lovely season brings in its wake for allergy sufferers. Seasonal allergies can overcome these sufferers. The twin dangers of pollen and mold can wreak havoc on the immune system of someone who is supersensitive to their influence.
Therefore, the best defense is offense. Take all the necessary precautions to be on guard against the seasonal allergens that pollute the environment. Among the symptoms triggered by both pollen and mold include: mucous in nasal passageways, inflamed air tubes, irritated throat, persistent coughing and finally asthmatic behavior. And the irony is that exercise only adds to the complications.
One of the best methods of beating seasonal allergies is to know what causes your body to react in such an extreme manner. The next step is to completely avoid that particular allergen. A brief visit to a doctor may identify the allergy-causing agent. And then you can get the problem treated.
Certain skin and blood tests may be administered. You may be surprised by the fact that there are other factors which might be triggering your symptoms. Pet dander and dust mites are just two alternative reasons. The treatment may be allopathic, homeopathic or holistic (Chinese or Ayurvedic).
Then by keeping the outer environment at bay you can prevent an episode. Seal the airways in your residence and build your own gym inside where you may exercise in safety and security.
Next, you have to keep an eye on the weather if you want to remain allergy-free. Don’t go out in inclement weather. If you face such conditions as sinus infections and migraine headaches than you may be more prone to allergies than the rest of the population. Check with your GP.
Besides all this, wearing a mask, washing your hair each day and guarding your eyes are three ways to protect against the ravaging effects of allergies. The proper treatment includes antihistamines and nasal decongestants not to mention eye drops. Also you have to take care with certain foods that cause the body to go into overdrive.
