Spring is Allergy Season
Get relief for spring allergies! To minimize exposure to allergens take these steps:
- Keep your car’s ventilation system on re-circulate. This will prevent some of the pollen from entering the vehicle. Some cars have a pollen filter. Make sure you change it before and after each pollen season.
- Change your in-home furnace filters to the HEPA type. Also clean and/or change them often during the pollen season.
- Purchase a HEPA filter, and let it run continuously during the pollen season.
Spring means beautiful warm weather! It’s a great time to get out of the house and enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. That is unless you’re plagued by springtime allergies. It’s really hard to enjoy any of the great weather and activities when you’re sneezing, coughing, and just feeling miserable from the itchy eyes, runny nose and congestion that comes with allergies.
Often you depend on over-the-counter allergy medications, prescription drugs and inhalers just to get through this season. These medications can cause undesirable side-effects like foggy-thinking, fatigue and a dull, drugged feeling.
If you suffer from spring allergies, and don’t want the side-effects of the medications, there are natural alternatives that may help relieve symptoms so you can enjoy the season!
