Allergies Suck!!

Inflammation is to blame. Allergies is our body's defense mechanism against foreign objects. Our immune system rushes to protect. Inflammation is the effect. One could subside the symptoms by allowing the body to reduce the urgency of defense. Tell it to take a step back with these methods:

  • Increase Quercetin (Antioxidant). It helps to prevent release of histamine which causes inflammation
 Find it in Apples (with skin on), Berries, Red grapes, Red Onions, capers and black tea.
  • Dose of Carotenoids - eliminates inflammation in airways.
Find it in Apricots, Carrots, Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Spinach, Kale, Butternut Squash, Collard greens.

  • Omega-3 Fatty acids. Helps reduce production of inflammatory chemicals in body.
Find in Fish / Fish Oil capsules, Flax Seed, Walnuts
  • During Flareups reduce intake of egg yolks, red meat & shellfish which are high in arachidonic acid, which may be associated with hay fever allergies.
