allergy-tipsAllergies may be more prevalent than we really know. A lot of symptoms attributed to other causes are, in fact, allergic responses. Chronic allergies to foods, food additives or everyday chemical products can produce symptoms that are labeled as colitis, migraine headaches, sinus problems, asthma and a variety of other health problems. Some allergies are disguised as addictions. You may actually crave a food or a substance that causes an unhealthy response, ranging from mood swings to headaches. Common food allergies include milk, wheat, corn,chocolate, peanuts and soft drinks.

There are some tips to consider for alleviating your allergies:

  • A food log can help you pinpoint possible suspect foods. If you write down the menu for every meal, you may be able to identify foods or dishes that are followed by allergic reactions. When you identify a food that may be responsible, try eliminating it for a week to two weeks. If there are no symptoms, reintroduce it to see if symptoms reappear.
  • If you catch colds frequently, your problem may actually stem from an allergy. The runny nose and swollen membranes associated with such allergic responses may be caused by histamines (naturally occurring body chemicals). Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and can often relieve these symptoms. Sinus-related allergies and hay fever are other problems that can be treated with Vitamin C.
  • If you often have rashes or other skin problems, they may be allergic responses to cosmetics, soaps or even laundry detergent.

Here’s another little-known method of identifying the source of an allergen without the expense of seeing a doctor; Use an unexposed area of your skin, such as your back (you may need assistance from someone). Make sure your skin is clean and dry. Apply a small amount of a suspected allergy-causing substance to your skin and cover with a square of surgical gauze, followed by a bandage or surgical tape. If the test substance is dry, such as a face powder or solid makeup, put a tiny amount of it in mineral oil and apply that to your skin. Keep the test patch on your skin for 24 to 48 hours and watch for an allergic reaction to develop. Once you find out which substance or substances are setting off your allergic response, you’ll know what to avoid.

nasal-allergyControlling allergies is a huge subject that is always under scrutiny by the millions of allergy sufferers who wake up daily with this chronic condition.

Here are some important allergy control tips:

1. Try to figure out what you are allergic to: pollen, grass, hay, dust, house mites, etc. Then try to stay away from the things that trigger your symptoms. You’ll probably never be able to completely get away from them, but you can try and minimize your exposure.
2. If your allergens (the things you are allergic to) are located outside (pollen, grass, etc.), then stay inside as much as you can during the seasons that disturb you the most (early spring, etc.). Keep your doors and windows closed and run the air conditioner. If possible, put an air filter system on your air conditioner so that it filters dust and pollen from the air as it cools it. Also try using a dehumidifying machine if your climate is very humid. A cool, low-humidity environment also helps prevent dust mites (a common allergen) from growing. The cool air also helps prevent household molds from growing (many people are allergic to molds).
3. Always use your air conditioner in your car, and avoid riding with the windows down or in a convertible.
4. Keep your pets outdoors as much as possible. If you allow them inside, keep them from getting on the furniture and going into your bedroom.
5. Use a HEPA vacuum for all dust related cleaning in the indoor environment of your home.
6. Use a HEPA air purifier in the rooms of your home you spend the most time in.

    Leave shoes at the door entrance as you enter the house.
