There are two types of common allergies: Season Allergic Rhinitis, commonly known as Hay fever which occurs during warmer months, particularly spring, and Perennial Allergic Rhinitis, which lasts throughout the year.
Common causes of allergies include reacting to certain foods, food additives and pesticides, grasses and pollens, dust mites, and chemicals in personal products and cleaning products.
Allergy symptoms include sneezing, sinus congestion, itchy eyes, persistent cough, wheezing, asthma, headaches, and skin disorders such as eczema.
If you have allergies, as well as looking at symptom relief, the underlying causes such as immune imbalances or nutritional deficiencies need to be addressed in order to give you long term relief.
There are natural treatments to support your immune system and strengthen the barrier function of the mucous membranes in your respiratory tract – helping you build a natural resistance of allergens.
