Lifestyle Tips to Help Prevent Allergies
Start taking action today to help prevent your allergy symptoms:
1. Neti Pot or Nasal Wash – Rinse your nose and sinuses of pollen daily with a Neti Pot or nasal wash spray to decrease your exposure to allergens.
2. Clean Air Filters and Air Vents – Clean all air vents of dust and mold. Change air filters regularly and use a HEPA air filter for your home. Airing out your house is not recommended because the pollen will come inside. If you do air out the house, be sure to change the filter when you are finished.
6. Eat Healthy – Eat lots of fruits and vegetables daily. They help reduce inflammation. The less junk and processed food you eat, the better off you and your immune system will be. Remember, sugar can depress your immune system, so avoid sugar and high carbohydrate foods such as bread, pizza, pasta, chips, cookies and so on.
7. Drink Clean, Filtered Water – Pollutants, pesticides and plastics in tap water have xenoestrogens which mimic estrogen and disrupt hormones. When your hormones are out of balance, your immune system can become unstable making you more susceptible to allergies.
8. Find Out What’s Making You React – Learn what you’re allergic to. A food elimination eating plan can help you narrow down what’s making you sick. Try keeping a journal so you can pinpoint your allergy triggers, whether it’s food or something in your environment that you are exposed to.
Vitamins and Supplements to Help Allergies
9. Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine. Research shows that vitamin C relieves the signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, such as sneezing, congestion, itchy nose and sore throat. (1)
10. Colostrum is known as mother’s first milk and contains many nutrients, antibodies and antioxidants to help build a baby’s immune system. Bovine colostrum is commonly used in colostrum supplements. It works by providing beneficial antibodies that give your immune system the blueprints for attacking lots of different viruses and bacteria.
11. Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent worldwide and may partly explain the increases in asthma and allergic diseases that have occurred over the last 50–60 years. Vitamin D has immunomodulatory effects on allergen-induced inflammatory pathways by acting on a variety of immune cells. (3)
12. Curcumin is the yellow, main active ingredient in turmeric. Curcumin’s immunomodulatory action mainly arises from its interactions with an extensive collection of immune cells. Clinically, curcumin has been found to have the potential therapeutic efficacy in treating several allergic diseases like asthma. (4)
13. Probiotic Blend is a superior, high-quality blend of good bacteria that helps improve immune function and restore gut health. Probiotic Blend is gluten-free and dairy-free, and tends to help with both seasonal and food allergies. Probiotics are a safe and natural solution to help with allergy prevention and treatment. They have beneficial effects on allergies and have been shown to be efficient in decreasing the IgE immunoglobulin, as well as in alleviating allergy symptoms. (5)
