Many of us take for granted that we can comfortably breathe year round but for others, the welcoming warmth of spring’s sunshine stimulates a full orchestra of pollens stepping up their dissemination everywhere, wreaking havoc on those who are allergic to specific pollens. Some conifers, alder wood, & birch pollens are some of the worst offenders in the spring, with grass pollens following in June and ragweed in the late summer.

You have a number of natural options for helping your child deal with allergies.Seasonal Allergy 2

  • Probiotics: Researchers have discovered that people who take probiotics throughout allergy season have lower levels of an antibody that triggers symptoms and higher levels of a different antibody (IgG) thought to play a protective role against reactions. Related research has shown evidence that giving probiotics to newborns and mothers-to-be may help prevent childhood allergies.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids: Recent studies have found that people who have diets rich in omega 3 fatty acids suffer from fewer allergy symptoms.
  • Vitamin D: Insufficient vitamin D levels are linked to more severe asthma and allergies in children. Also, vitamin D has been found to reduce allergic responses to mould.Seasonal Allergy 1
  • Quercetin: A natural antihistamine. It reduces histamine reactions in your body;

Bioflavonoids & quercetin are both members of the Vitamin C family and are helpful aids in stabilizing the mast cells, so they don’t flood your tissues with histamine production. Keep in mind that excess histamines are the troublemakers that make your lungs, nose, & eyes to itch & swell up, creating runny noses.

  • NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) is one of the most potent antioxidants in the body. When taken orally, it has the ability to thin mucus & makes it easier for the body to assimilate it. NAC is known for reducing airway inflammation in the lungs.
