For many people that have never suffered from allergies, the last few years have been a rude awakening. With pollen counts higher than ever, what are we to do? Many people take an allergy or antihistamine medication that can have nasty side-effects. At Dawn Potter Acupuncture, we take a more natural approach to allergy treatment in Clearwater, Florida and today we are providing natural allergy relief tips for our whole community.
Drink More Water
Did you know that not drinking enough water can actually make your allergies worse? Dehydration can increase histamine levels in the body, directly impacting your allergies, even those seasonal ones! We recommend drinking 10-15 cups of water each day to ensure you stay hydrated.
Reduce Inflammatory Foods
Did you know that the foods you eat can directly impact your seasonal allergies? Foods such as dairy or gluten can increase inflammation in the body, causing histamine to also be higher. We recommend an anti-inflammatory diet during your worst allergy symptoms.
Pollen can actually get trapped on our bodies and our clothing. If you have spent time outside, we recommend changing your clothing and trying to rinse off. This can get extra pollen off of you, reducing your reaction to it.
Start Clearwater Chinese Herbal Medicine
While we don’t recommend just adding random herbs to your diet/life, ginger is something that is readily available and easy to add to water or tea. Dr. Dawn Potter can also schedule an appointment with you to discuss your symptoms, health and other factors to determine an individualized Chinese herbal medicine regimen that can help with your Clearwater seasonal allergies.
