Holistic Methods to Help Alleviate Allergies
What are allergies?
An allergy is your immune system’s response to abnormal substances entering the body; usually triggering an exaggerated attack. Many common allergens are food-based products like nuts, milk, and eggs. Whereas some allergens are found within nature; such as tree pollen, bug bites, pet fur, and even grass that can affect our respiratory system. When certain individuals that are considered to be “hypersensitive” are exposed to these substances, their immune system will release a chemical known as histamine. When this chemical is released into the body, it can cause the symptoms commonly associated with allergies.
If you suffer from allergies -whether they’re daily or seasonal- you’re familiar with the misery that comes along. Symptoms such as runny noses, congestion, sniffling and even irritated eyes can linger for weeks at a time. As if enduring these conditions wasn’t enough, the aftermath can include chronic sinus headaches, nausea or in severe cases a deviated septum. People who suffer from allergies have searched high and low for anything that may bring even the slightest bit of relief to their symptoms. What we commonly come up with are medications that mask the symptoms in an attempt at relief. What if we told you there’s a natural treatment, which may not only alleviate your symptoms, but boost your immune system at the same time. The best part — it doesn’t require a prescription. What is it?

Halotherapy is a great way to not only alleviate your allergy symptoms, but to relax as well.
