Spring is finally here which means that BC’s long allergy season is just around the corner and if you suffer from seasonal allergies, you’ve probably got a love/hate relationship with spring. It’s tough to go outside and smell the roses when you’re snuffy and sneezy. The birds might be singing, but your sinuses are screaming for relief.
Oftentimes, people reach for over-the-counter antihistamines which block the chemical histamine which the immune system produces when a person is exposed to an allergen to lessen the severity of their allergic symptoms and they can be effective. But these medications can also have negative side effects such as drowsiness, fatigue, headache, and nausea. Some people also use nasal corticosteroids, but these can leave the nose feeling dry and irritated.
Because of this, many allergy-sufferers are searching for more natural ways to treat their symptoms like using herbs, eating certain foods, and Sublingual Immunotherapy (a.k.a SLIT) treatment. SLIT therapy refers to repeatedly exposing you to small doses of what the patient is allergic to (allergen) to make the patient less sensitive to it. Unlike antihistamines and other medications that treat allergy symptoms, immunotherapy treats the condition itself and over time it desensitizes the patient to the allergen.
