Shamrocks and springtime are the two things that come to my mind when thinking about March. Budding trees, blossoming flowers, birds returning and a plethora of green characterize this month. While many of us welcome these warmer days and change of seasons, million suffer from seasonal allergies. Allergies can make spring a bittersweet time.
Research shows more than half of American adults and approximately 30% of children deal with allergies every year. Spring tends to be the most common time for these allergies to flare. The American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology lists allergic disease, including asthma, as the third most common chronic disease for children and the fifth most common for adults. Nasal allergies account for $17.5 BILLION dollars per year in medical expenses. This is only nasal allergies (ragweed, dander allergies, etc)- food and other allergies account for billions more.
The likelihood of developing allergies increases when a child has one or more parents who have allergies. Yet, environmental factors are also involved in the development of allergies. We’re spending more time indoors than ever, there are more toxins on the Earth than ever before, and allergies are continuing to rise each year. Allergies are caused by one’s immune system reacting to a substance as a threat and going under attack. When this happens, the body produces antibodies against the perceived threat. Exposure to an allergen when one is already sick generally increases the risk of the body viewing that substance as a threat in the future. When the antibodies encounter the substance, they attempt to fight it with mast cells. These mast cells are what create allergy symptoms such as sneezing, asthma, and runny nose. Allergies have risen significantly in the last couple decades and are quite troublesome for millions of Americans.
Options for Allergy Treatment
Besides preparation for seasonal allergies, a variety of options are available to help prevent & treat nasal allergies.
~ Nasal Spray
~ HEPA filters
~ Keeping doors & windows closed
~ Nose Rinse
~ Remaining indoors during allergy season
~ Chiropractic Care
Our popular formula ALRG is our March Item of the Month. This product was formulated by a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor to help address the weak immune system that accompanies allergies. Our customers have found it to be effective against seasonal allergies, mold, pet dander, and much more. ALRG tends to a slower working formula than some of our other products. Customers using it for seasonal allergies tend to find the most success when they begin using it before allergies flare and throughout the season. However, families report a significantly decreased need for other allergy interventions when using ALRG in the middle of allergy season or during an allergic attack from something not seasonal. ALRG is also found in our Allergy Support Wellness Kit. This kit is designed to work synergistically to not only fight off your allergies but get to the root cause.
ALRG contains the following: Rehmannia (Chinese Foxglove), Astragalus Root, Xanthium, Centipede Herb, Siler Root, Baiacal Skullcap Root, Capillaris, Angelica, Jujube, Licorice Root, and Spirodela Leaves in a base of Kosher Vegetable Glycerine and Reverse Osmosis Water.
