It is that time of year when some of you may be experiencing allergy symptoms.
You need to understand that the watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing even though uncomfortable and annoying, are the way your body gets rid of the stuff you are allergic to.
Pollen for example.
You also need to understand that taking a medication that prevents watery eyes, a runny nose and sneezing allows the stuff you are allergic to, to stay inside your body.
You can imagine that this cannot really be good for you especially when your body was trying to get rid of it in the first place.
Your body always knows best!
So, what can you do?
Here are my 3 best recommendations that I give all of my patients who have allergy symptoms:
1. Drink plenty of water as this will help cleanse and flush the stuff out of your body that you are allergic to.
2. There are several natural remedies to help support your immune system. You can find these at your favorite health food store. They are totally safe to take during high allergy season.
3. Remember that chiropractic care is the most important thing you can do to help super-charge your immune system. Nothing else even comes close to the powerful effect a spinal adjustment has on your defense system. And it is totally ok to get a few extra adjustments during the time of year when allergies bother you the most.
Most people who follow these 3 recommendations are much more comfortable during allergy season.
