Sooth Spring Allergies Naturally

By: Chiro One Wellness Centers

 Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - HealthSpring is in the air. Literally. From weeds to spores to grass and tree pollens, the warm weather is here, driving airborne allergen levels through the roof. That means your allergy symptoms — the sniffling, sneezing, and itchy watery eyes — are in overdrive and apt to stay that way for months.

What’s the best way to treat seasonal allergies? Dr. Katrina Ordóñez, D.C., Chiropractic Director of Chiro One Wellness Center of River North recommends taking a natural approach to fighting seasonal allergies. “Traditional allergy treatments including antihistamines only deal with the symptoms without addressing the cause,” says Ordóñez. “This is because western medicine has no cure for allergies and worse yet, antihistamines used over time or combined with other medication can have harmful side effects.” Dr. Katrina Ordóñez, D.C. and Chiro One Wellness Centers recommend these simple ways to fight seasonal allergies naturally:

Keep allergens out. Pollen can collect on your clothes, skin, and hair, and be tracked into your home, where is mixes with household dust. A shower and change of clothes will cut down on the irritants you inhale.

Perk up puffy eyes. The histamines released during an allergy attack cause blood vessels to dilate, making eyes swollen and watery. For quick relief, try cold compresses or eye creams whose ingredients include caffeine; cold and caffeine both reduce swelling and help you look and feel better.

Go Natural. Eat bee pollen and/or pure, raw honey which is Mother Nature’s all-natural, seasonal allergy “vaccination”. Consuming local bee pollen and/or pure, raw honey will allow your immune system to build natural antibodies to the pollens you are most frequently exposed to.
