Suffering From Allergies?
Posted on July 3rd, 2018

If spring and fall send your seasonal allergies into a spin, or you suffer from allergies in general, naturopathic medicine can provide relief and/or prevent allergies from occurring. Allergies are not a something that you have to grin and bear, and relief doesn’t just have to be drugstore counter medications.

Allergies occur when the immune system mistakenly reacts to a foreign substance that is not normally harmful to the body such as pollen or pet dander. This causes a release of histamines leading to inflammation in the body, resulting in symptoms such as difficulty breathing, lightheadedness, rashes, nausea, vomiting, red/itchy eyes, stuffy/runny nose, and headaches.

Naturopathic medicine can help treat allergies by first helping to identify and address underlying factors in your lifestyle (e.g., exposure to allergens, poor diet, hormonal imbalances, stress) and then implement therapeutic options such as:

  • Nutritional supplements
  • Homeopathic medicines
  • Lifestyle counseling
  • Cleansing protocols
  • Acupuncture
  • Botanical medicines
