Allergy relief

Allergies can really play havoc with your life, so wouldn’t it be great to find some sort of allergy relief that can make your life better.

It is not only the constant sneezing, the itchy red eyes, headaches, postnasal drip, and the runny and irritated nose that can drive you up the wall and prevent you from getting a proper night’s sleep, but allergies are also one of the snoring risk factors.

So, you cannot sleep properly because of your allergies, and your partner cannot sleep properly because of your snoring caused by your allergies.

It’s going to be another long night.

Luckily there are some natural allergy cures that can help, which I will deal with in this article, but I will also briefly highlight the main medicinal help that is available to stop allergy symptoms.

 

What is an allergy?

Allergies start when your body comes in contact with allergens and assumes it as a threat. Your immune system ‘comes to the rescue’ and attacks the allergens by means of the IgE antibody, which results in you then getting the typical allergy symptoms of sneezing, itchy Dust Miteeyes, runny nose etc.

Allergies affect each person in different ways, so different people can experience different symptoms for the same allergen.

At the same time, people’s tolerance of allergies is different. Some people ‘outgrow’ their allergies, while in other cases their allergies gets worse over the years.

Allergies can go unnoticed for a long time, until a reaction to a second allergy set off the first allergy as well, and you are then stuck with multiple allergies.

Allergies are serious and should not be ignored.

If you experience any allergy symptoms, find out what’s to blame and take it from there, and don’t hesitate to seek medical advice, because allergies can lead to more serious health conditions.

  • Do not allow your pets to sleep on your bed, or even in your bedroom.

  • Clean furniture and surfaces in your house regularly to avoid allergen built up.
  • If you suspect that certain foods and medication negatively affects you, get a test done to determine what foods and medicine you are allergic to, and avoid them.
  • Consider hypoallergenic pillows and bedding.
  • If you have an air conditioner, ensure it is serviced regularly to keep its air filtration system in good working order.
  • Some clinical studies shows that certain foods that contain probiotics can actually alleviate some allergy symptoms, so try eating more yogurt and other milk products that contain probiotics, and see if that helps.

If you have to take the medicine route, over the counter antihistamines may be your best bet, as it can give quick relieve. Avoid using this long term though as it can have some nasty side effects, which includes increased snoring.
