For many people, allergies flare up the most in the springtime.
However, some people suffer from allergies year-round, and are especially sensitive to airborne allergens in the summer when the weather is hot and humid.
To help minimize symptoms, keep a few things in mind when planning your summer activities:
- Take your shoes off when entering your home to keep pollen at the door.
- Keep your air conditioning on a controlled setting even when you are away from home to prevent humidity from reaching levels that could encourage mold growth.
- Limit exposure to barbeque grill smoke, especially the charcoal-burning kind. Also be wary of bonfires and campfires, which can give off heavy smoke and aggravate the throat, nose, and eyes.
- Herbal and homeopathic remedies can help to address seasonal allergies, without the risk of side effects. Arsen alb (15C) is a remedy with a wide variety of uses and has been proven beneficial in maintaining a healthy, clear respiratory system. Nat mur (6X), a biochemic tissue salt, has an excellent effect in supporting healthy fluid levels in the body, including the eyes, nose, sinuses, chest, mucous membranes and skin.
