It’s that time of year again when people who have allergies complain about nasal congestion, coughing, and wheezing, itching, shortness of breath, headache, fatigue, hives and other skin rashes. Many people experience allergies due to pollens from outdoors combined with foods and indoor stagnant air carrying dust, mold, and other air pollutants.

What to do?

So how do you stop this annual cycle? What can you do at home to stop this greater intrusion of allergy issues. Where can you go for relief if your allergies have gotten out of control. Relieve stress – frequently allergies increase stress to your system. Keeping your body detoxing (self-cleaning) is one of two important actions that you can do in your home. An easy Yoga pose done properly can keep your personal cleaning team (your immune system) in song.

Sit on the ground as in the image on your heels with toes 2 inches apart. Exhale as you slowly bend forward toward ground with your upper body. Try to have your forehead touch the ground before you. Place your arms on floor area with hands below your toes and index finger at the valley or internet between the big toe and the 2nd toe.

Breathe in deeply

Breathe in and out slowly for 1 minute. Your aim is to work as many as 2 minutes. After every time relax in your back and allow your muscles to relax for a couple of minutes. This pose stimulates the body’s ability to cleanse itself. It helps detox the liver, lungs, stomach, spleen and bladder. Secondly, how clean is the environment? Clients often come to me to deal with their allergies however, if your home and office require a excellent seasonal cleaning allergy remedies only will work for a short period – even if your problem is food based.

Did you know?

Many foods contain natural molds, such as bananas, grapes, and most other fruits. Or their own dust like anything than can made to a ‘flour’ such as corn, wheat, potatoes, and much more. So keep your house and office as clean as you can. The accumulation of dust and mold from your office or home and on foods may actually”create” allergy intolerance. Detox your home and workplace. Use Organic products located at the local health food industry.

Dust using a moist cloth. Use machine washable curtains and wash regularly. Don’t store things under the mattress. Dust or vacuum under beds weekly. Do not let stuffed animals in the bedroom – interior materials frequently contain sawdust. Vacuum carpeting and furniture regularly. Use a newer vacuum which does not use bags and comes equipped with a self-cleaning air filter system so dust does not go in the air. Limit birds, animals or reptiles in the home. Bath your family animals often. This means every 7 to 14 days.

Pet allergy

For those who have a pet allergy don’t sleep with your pet. Provide them with their own bed right outside your bedroom door for the your relaxation. Don’t groom animals in the home.
