Medicine and supplements can help prevent and treat allergy symptoms, but did you know there are natural remedies found in your home and office that can help reduce your miserable allergy symptoms as well?
For instance, simply removing all nylon curtains and vinyl shower curtains can decrease symptoms.
It's important to remember that springtime is one of the most common seasons for allergies. The weather is changing, flowers are blooming and allergens flow freely through the air.
In certain areas, you may need to turn on your AC due to the warmer weather. Sometimes, your indoor air conditioner can be worse for you than being outdoors. Think about it; you've been sealed in a confined space for more than a couple months.
Another tip? Open your windows and doors for at least 20 minutes a day. During those winter months you might have used spray air fresheners or cooked on your stove top without turning the vent on. All these toxins need a place to escape.
You should also take your shoes off at the front door. Do you know where your shoes have been?
It's not called spring cleaning to get you excited for a new season. Cleaning out your closest gets rid of dust that can trigger your allergies. Wash your pillows, pillowcases and bed sheets.
