Getting Prepared For Hayfever Time
Pollen issues seem a way off but strengthening the body now will pay dividends when the time comes!
The Adrenal Side of Hayfever
Our adrenal glands play an important role in hayfever allergy responses, so supporting the adrenals before and during your particular reaction to pollens, spores, dust etc will be essential. The more histamine that is released, the more cortisol it takes to control the inflammatory response and the harder the adrenals have to work to produce more cortisol. Those with already weak and over-exhausted adrenal glands will be worse off. So Supporting, feeding and nurturing the adrenals with the adaptogenic herb Siberian ginseng makes real sense. For daily Siberian ginseng, try the ‘EnergiRevive Powder’. Ideally do this for 1-2 months before your own personal pollen onset time-frame, as well as during your ‘high’ symptom times.
A Reminder for Food Support Ideas
The biochemistry within food can really make a difference. ‘Bromelain’ will help, ideally eaten as fresh pineapple, it is an anti-inflammatory and nasal decongestant. Quercetin and rutin rich foods will also help by reducing excessive histamine release. Onion (red), apple (keep the skin on), citrus fruits, broccoli, berries are all quercetin-rich. Search out local honey and use it year-round but most importantly for 1-2 months before your normal hayfever onset time frame. The idea behind this is to introduce local pollens into your system and gently desensitise your immune reaction to them. Of course, any other known allergens like wheat and dairy must be avoided.
