5 Foods to Fight Fall Allergies

Forover 35  million Americans, the transition into autumn means a lot more than just apple cider and snuggling into sweatshirts. Instead of enjoying the beautiful season, we celebrate the passing of Labor Day with our eyes constantly watering and a box of tissues close at hand. Common fall allergens include many substances that are hard to avoid altogether, like ragweed pollen and molds. With the many outdoor activities in the fall,  many are forced to choose between staying inside and missing out on the fun or a host of unpleasant allergy symptoms. Luckily, there are natural ways to combat the effects of fall allergies.

Spring Allergies

I just went on a nice long walk through the park, and it’s very clear that spring is here. You know why? Because I can’t breathe through my nose anymore. The allergens are out in full bloom.

This is the time of year when many people schedule an appointment with their family doctor for an allergy evaluation. It turns out that most patients that go in to see their physician do not, in fact, have allergies, but respiratory tract infections. It seems that the word on the street is that most everyone is prone to allergies to an extent, especially during certain times of the year.  It is an understandable thought, with all the trees in bloom and the tree pollen counts greater than they ever are in the whole year.
