Say So Long to Seasonal Allergies & Hello to Relief

woman with allergyFor many people, seasonal allergies are a minor annoyance. However, for others, they can be a massive source of discomfort. Allergies occur when the body’s immune system overreacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen or dust.

Here in Missouri, ragweed can be very high in the fall and seems to be a trigger for many people. Sufferers can experience many symptoms, including sneezing, coughing, congestion, runny nose, ear pain, and pressure in the face.

Natural Alternatives to Medication

While there are multiple OTC and prescription medications to address allergies, many people want to alleviate their symptoms naturally. We offer that here at The Wellness Connection through our multi-pronged approach:

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is one option that may be effective in treating allergies. Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments can help improve the function of the nervous system and reduce inflammation throughout the body. This can lead to reduced symptoms of allergies, as well as improved overall health.

Functional Medicine

By addressing the underlying cause of your allergies through testing, functional medicine can provide long-lasting relief so you can enjoy the season.

Nutritional Counseling

Kristy Shaughnessy, Clinical Nutritionist, can make dietary recommendations to address your allergies. For example, dairy causes mucus in the body, so if you have a runny nose or congestion, she recommends you stay away from dairy. It’s also a good idea to avoid other inflammatory foods (including wheat, gluten, soy, and sugar). By avoiding these foods, you can decrease inflammation in the body, and it can help it heal quicker too.
