As the seasonal transition unfolds and we progress into the latter phase of the Spring season, the rejuvenation of nature and its blossoming allure become more apparent.

This shift in vitality and the emergence of beauty and growth serve as a wellspring of inspiration for many. However, for some, this time may also herald the onset of seasonal allergies, presenting challenges with associated symptoms.

Seasonal allergies stem from the accumulation of histamines in the bloodstream, resulting in intolerance that manifests as symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, changes in skin quality (including dryness, bumps, and rashes), and the potential emergence of new sensitivities. Histamines are byproducts of the body's immune response. While over-the-counter (OTC) products are commonly utilized to block histamines, it's imperative to recognize that such interventions offer temporary relief rather than addressing the underlying causes, potentially leading to future health complications and side effects.

Healing always starts from within. To navigate this seasonal shift more effectively, here are several strategies and resources designed to assist in mitigating histamine buildup within the body:

Adopt a Low-Histamine Protocol
 This approach involves eliminating high-histamine-inducing foods, such as fermented items and leftovers, while incorporating histamine-reducing foods, like Vitamin C and fresh rosemary. Embracing this protocol typically yields significant improvements within the initial 2-3 months and many patients have achieved remarkable outcomes utilizing this protocol.

Utilize Quercetin and Nettles 
Quercetin, a flavonoid, offers natural relief and serves as a healthier alternative to conventional OTC antihistamines like Claritin or Allegra. When combined with stinging nettle leaf, it generates a synergistic anti-inflammatory response, providing further alleviation.

Incorporate a Microbiome Cleanser
As we undertake spring cleaning for our homes, it's equally beneficial to cleanse our bodies in preparation for warmer weather. Supplementing with a natural microbiome cleanser helps facilitate detoxification, particularly following a season marked by indulgence in carb-dense and unhealthy foods. While sweating is a great option for us to detox, we can also assist in the process by supplementing with a natural product until the weather becomes warm enough.

Address Topical Symptoms Naturally
While healing begins within the body, external symptoms also warrant attention. Natural remedies such as Sovereign Silver, derived from colloidal silver, rosemary oil, and LED light therapy offer effective relief for various skin conditions associated with allergy season.

Sovereign Silver is a derivative of colloidal silver which has been a remedy that has been used for thousands of years to aid and speed up the healing process for: skin conditions, wounds, infections, hay fever, allergies, sunburns, and even viruses. This product can be used topically on skin, or ingested in a liquid form. 

Rosemary yields antihistamine properties, both when ingested and used topically. When used on the face, or an area of skin that is yielding an allergic reaction, it can drain the sinuses, provide relief for neuralgia, and dry out any rashes or cystic acne. Rosemary does have a stringent effect, so it is recommended to dilute the product with a carrier oil, such as almond, olive, or jojoba oil. 

LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved, method to treat varying skin conditions using different colors, or wavelength frequencies. For instance, red light therapy is great for anti-aging and collagen production, while blue light helps acne-related issues by minimizing activity in the sebaceous glands, causing less oil and mucous production. 

Achieve relief from your seasonal allergies and optimal health and wellness, too, through small, incremental changes that are made on a regular basis. Over time, these changes synergize and create long lasting effects to be enjoyed on your healing journey.
