What You Put in Your Body Affects Your Health Greatly

I have always been one of those people who could eat whatever they wanted and never gain weight, and due to that fact, I never used to put much thought into what I ate. When I started experiencing health problems, my doctor ordered some tests and found that I was experiencing anemia due to an iron-deficient diet. I am grateful I had this "wake up call" before I continued to eat a bad diet for the rest of my life, because I soon also realized my diet was lacking vitamins and minerals. I changed my eating habits and began to feel much better. I began juicing to take advantage of all of the vitamins and minerals in healthy, fresh juice. I have learned a lot about health during my commitment to leading a healthier lifestyle, so I decided to start a blog to share my health advice with the world!

Tips For Dealing With Allergy Symptoms

Many people go throughout their entire lives without ever experiencing any type of allergy. However, many people that reach their middle-aged years that have never had troubles with allergies suddenly develop them. Allergists and other medical experts are not sure why some people develop allergies suddenly after living half their lives without them. If you have suddenly started experiencing the aggravating, annoying symptoms of seasonal allergies, follow these tips for relieving your symptoms.

Learn The Allergen Your Immune System Suddenly Dislikes

A visit to an allergist can help you learn which allergen or allergens you have suddenly become allergic to. When you know what you are allergic to, you have better chances of steering clear of it. However, bear in mind that many allergens involved in seasonal allergies are everywhere outdoors. Some allergens are only high in the air during certain seasons as well. An allergist can determine through a series of tests which type of allergen bothers you and he or she will tell you in what season it is most prevalent. Avoiding outdoor activities during the time your allergens are at their highest level can help you avoid the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Steaming Hot Showers Can Soothe Allergy Symptoms

Taking a hot, steaming shower can do wonders for opening up your nose and sinus cavities. The steam can also help to sooth your throat if it is irritated from coughing or from sinus drainage. Bear in mind that if you cough up mucous while in a steaming shower, be sure to spit out. Steam works to loosen phlegm that can lead to respiratory viruses, so getting it out is a good thing. Before you step into a hot shower, be sure to close the door and windows so the steam will remain thick in your bathroom.

Neti Pot Or Nasal Spray?

If you have trouble using a neti pot, you should be sure to get nasal spray instead. Some nasal sprays contain only saline, the same solution used in neti pots, but other contain antihistamines that can provide greater relief for tough, unrelenting allergy symptoms. A neti pot involves you pouring saline water into your nose, a treatment many people have trouble doing. Your allergist can recommend the most effective nasal spray for your particular allergy symptoms.

Dealing with the symptoms of seasonal allergies is no fun, especially when you have to be at work. By taking steps to control your symptoms, you can lead life without itchy eyes and a runny nose.
