Allergies are here
Allergy season is in full swing. One in six people suffer from pollen allergies, also called hay fever or seasonal allergic rhinitis. Over 55 million Americans are experiencing symptoms such as watery eyes, stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing, wheezing and hives.
Allergies occur when molds release their spores, and trees, grasses, and weeds release tiny pollen particles into the air to fertilize other plants.
What causes allergies?
Allergies and their uncomfortable symptoms occur when our immune system overreacts to harmless pollen. Our body releases chemicals, including histamine to fight off this perceived threat.
When is Pollen the worst?
Pollen levels depend on the temperature, rainfall, sunlight and weather conditions and can vary by month and day.
Naturally fight pollen
Ingesting low levels of the current pollen in your area may help you become less sensitive to it and experience fewer symptoms. This is the philosophy behind homeopathic remedies.
Consuming raw organic local honey will have small amounts of the current pollen and has been shown to help boost immunity.
Local bee pollen supplements can also help and are a great addition to your smoothie.

During times of high pollen levels:
- Minimize outdoor activity in the morning between 5:00 and 10:00 a.m. when pollen levels are at their highest, or on rainy, cloudy or windless days when pollen is dispersed slowly.
- Keep car windows closed while driving.
- Avoid lawn mowing and leaf raking which stir up pollens.
- Keep windows closed at home to prevent airborne pollens from coming indoors.
- Consider using a HEPA air purifier.
