Natural Seasonal Allergy Support + Remedies!

Seasonal allergies are the pits!

Spring has sprung and so has the pollen count across the country!

From Bend, Oregon and across the entire country, warmer temperatures means more pollen in the air which explains all of the coughing, sneezing, stuffy head, and congestion you’ve been experiencing.

In Central Oregon, we’re dealing with an unusually high juniper pollen count this season and it’s been downright unbearable. Along with outdoor allergens like pollen we can’t forget about those found indoors. In general, common types of allergy triggers are: mold spores, dust mites, tree, grass and weed pollencat, dog and rodent dander. If you’ve got allergies, chances are you’ve tried every over-the-counter allergy medication there is to combat your symptoms with mixed results.

And if you think you’re alone in your allergy-induced misery, think again. According to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America,

“More than 50 million Americans have experienced various types of allergies each year”

With such a high number of allergy sufferers in the states it’s not surprising that “allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.” The statistics are worrisome and just too high to ignore. That’s why at Inspired Health we focus on the whole person + reducing inflammation in order to eliminate allergies.  

We believe that in order to reach optimal health you must get your mind, body, and soul right.

Getting to the root of the problem is key to gaining overall well-being.

How do I achieve this?

 

The foundation of optimizing wellness starts with the Five Pillars of Inspired Health, developed by our founders, Dr. Wendy Weintrob and Dr. Meaghan Dishman. Follow this step-by-step health strategy and we guarantee you’ll start to feel good, allergy season or not:

Your body starts expressing symptoms when there is too much stress on the system – allergies are no different! Stress can be an allergen, and so can foods that cause you inflammation or a gut bug. NUTRITION is the literal foundation of all of your health, including your allergies. By dialing in the foods that serve as medicine for your body, and removing the foods that cause inflammation and gut distress, most of your allergy symptoms improve, if not disappear entirely.

We customize all of our nutritional support plans at Inspired Health by utilizing specialized Functional Medicine lab testing to see what causes YOU inflammation!

What works for you is going to be different than what works for someone else.
