From the air we breathe to the foods we eat, pollutants, allergens, mites and bacteria can creep into our immune and digestive systems. Heredity, genetics, environment and lifestyle all have an impact on how our bodies react to free radicals in the air and bacteria in food. When the histamines in our bodies can no longer regulate the exposure we get from these types of toxins and pollutants, an allergy attack is triggered. Allergies can wreak havoc on our daily lives. Some people experience migraines, brain fog, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, runny or stuffy noses and even life-threatening anaphylaxis from direct exposure to their allergy triggers. Depending on the severity of your allergy, you may be able to find over-the-counter relief for your common seasonal allergy issues.
If your allergies make it next-to-impossible to complete your daily tasks at work or you suffer from debilitating migraines, hives or more severe symptoms when an allergy is triggered, you should seek the advice of a medical professional for more aggressive treatment options. For more common symptoms, many allergy support supplement and vitamin options can help you get fast relief from pesky symptoms. Some supplements, vitamins and over-the-counter products target the specific allergy symptoms while others work with your body chemistry to regulate the triggered response.
If you know you will be working in or visiting an area or place that triggers your allergy symptoms, you may want to consider wearing a medical face mask for protection. Maintaining a healthy diet, sleep and exercise routine can also help to minimize allergy symptoms. Most people with seasonal allergies need to take a daily supplement or pill to prevent the onset of cold and flu-like allergy symptoms.
While seasonal allergies may be annoying, most people only have to deal with experiencing symptoms during the appropriate season or when exposed to their triggers outside of their home. You should always keep a supply of medication and any emergency devices close at hand in case your allergies become more severe or trigger an anaphylactic response.
