Allergy Approaches through Lifestyle

What we do is just as powerful as what we eat to keep ourselves operating at our very best health. This applies to taking care during allergy season as well. So, again, instead of just popping a pill and trekking ahead as usual. Try taking care instead.

1. Know Your Season - If you know exactly what allergy triggers you are susceptible to (get tested by your doctor or carefully chart your reactions this year) you can take extra care by following this seasonal guide:

*Alder ? Feb, Mar, Apr, May

*Hazelnut - Feb, Mar, Apr, May

*Elm ? Feb, Mar, Apr, May

*Birch ? Mar, April, May June

*Maple ? Mar, April, May June

*Oak ? Mar, April, May June

*Sorrel ? April, May, June, July, Aug, Sept

*Stinging Nettle ? April, May, June, July, Aug, Sept

*Beech - April, May June

*Spruce - April, May June

*Buttercup ? May, June, July

*Mugwort - July, Aug, Sept

2. Keep Windows Closed - it may seem simple and you may feel like you are missing the "fresh air of spring", but it could save you money and sneeze power. Secure windows of your home and car during your "tough" season.

3. Showers and Baths - Take a shower at night to remove any pollen that may have collected in your hair or nails during the day. Take a HOT bath to raise your body temperature to help the body purge toxins. Add the essential oils (all natural, no artificial fragrances) of camphor, menthol and eucalyptus to help with decongestion (You can also mix these oils with sweet almond oil and apply under the nose and on the neck during the day for easier breathing).

To your health and success, Heather
