Allergy is the reaction of the body’s immune system to harmless substances that surround us. It may occur as the result of being exposed to animal hair, down feathers, dust, cigarette smoke, insect stings and pollen. The substances that trigger allergy symptoms are called allergens. In some cases, allergic reactions are so mild you may not even know that you actually have allergy.
But today we’ll talk about pollinosis.
Pollinosis (allergy to pollen) is a pre-asthmatic condition. If left untreated, its symptoms may progress from a slightly runny nose to bronchial asthma. The sooner you consult a doctor, the more chances you have of preventing this condition from developing further.
The principal method for treating pollinosis is allergen immunotherapy.
Herbalism (phytotherapy) is not usually recommended for treating pollinosis. This is due to cross-reactivity: pollen, leaves, stalks, flowers or fruits may provoke serious allergic symptoms. Nobody can say for sure if a herbal preparation will cause an allergic reaction or if it won’t result in any complications.
During ragweed season, certain rules of behavior should be followed:
– spend less time outdoors (in the country, woods or your front yard);
– don’t engage in outside chores (such as lawn mowing);
– cover your home windows with wet cheesecloth (to trap pollen);
– while sitting in a car, keep the windows closed;
– wear sunglasses when you’re outside;
– don’t leave your clothes to dry outdoors, on a balcony, etc.
Evening is the best time for taking a walk because of a lower amount of pollen in the air or humid weather weighing pollen down.
If you come in contact with pollen, rinse your eyes, nose and throat with warm water containing a little amount of salt.
You should also see an allergist to identify the allergen you’ve come in contact with. The specialist will then be able to prescribe anti-allergic drugs and preventive treatment (vaccine therapy).
Of course, pollen allergies are not restricted to a specific period.
To successfully cope with the effects of allergy, we recommend the following triad (three things to keep in mind even if you don’t suffer from allergy):
– healthy diet;
– avoiding stress;
This triad is important for everybody, regardless of whether you are affected by allergy or not.
Of great significance in preventing asthma and allergy is the fasting dietary therapy.
According to this approach, on fasting days your diet may include only one of the following:
– fruits (non-citrus),
– juices (non-citrus),
– no food for 24 hours (drinking pure water is required).
To arrange such a fasting routine, first consult your doctor to discuss your eating plan and all its details. After you make sure that your body responds to these limitations easily, painlessly and with clear improvements in sight, you can occasionally (once a week) incorporate this therapy into your lifestyle.
Whatever kind of dietary therapy you choose to fight allergy, you should do it readily, in good spirits and by mustering all your inner strength to overcome the condition.
For any kind of allergic reaction, it is recommended to adopt a body cleansing program and maintain the water balance (avoid dehydration).
