What Is Causing Your Fall Allergies? 8 Tips to Reducing Symptoms

Interview: Dr. Donna Perillo.

Dr. Donna Perillo, DC, CNS, NMD; creator of “Arthriticise for Low Back and Neck Pain,” “Decrease Stress and Anxiety in 21 Days,” and the “Habits of Healing” podcast.

Dr. Perillo’s talking points on
Fall Allergies
:

“According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, people with
allergies to one type of plant pollen (or to dust, animals, and/or fungi) tend
to develop allergies to other pollens as well. Approximately 10-20% of
Americans suffer from ragweed allergy.” Symptoms include sneezing,
runny or stuffy nose, eczema, eye irritation, itchy throat or ears, cough,
asthma, and wheezing.

Ragweed Allergy

Tips To Reduce Your Allergy Symptoms
  1. Ragweed is the most common fall allergen. Depending on location
    ragweed pollinates from August until October
  2. Mold spores and fungi are also triggers. Mold spores can breed in the
    damp leaves.
  3. Dry indoor air causes dryness of the mucous membranes, which causes
    inflammation. Dust mites also become more active and increase symptoms
    when the heat is first turned on.
  4. Keep the doors and windows closed and stay inside as much as possible to
    avoid contact with the allergens.
  5. Have the heating vents cleaned and filter change before the heat is put on
    filter. A HEPA filter is recommended as it can trap irritating allergens.
  6. Keeping the humidity between 35% and 50% can help moisten the mucous membranes and decrease the inflammation.
  7. If you must rake the leaves wear a mask to reduce exposure.
  8. Antihistamines, decongestants, allergy shots, herbal and homeopathic
    formulas, acupuncture, and chiropractic may also help decrease the
    symptom—Reduce foods like melons and bananas which are high in histamine.

Beating Seasonal Allergies

Available for interviews: One of our health care Media Ambassadors

Here are some talking points on the subject of allergies—how to eliminate sources of allergens in our households and foods, and how to best treat using a more holistic approach:

Allergic Reactions

When exposed to an allergen, the body triggers the immune system to go into action. The immune system cells, known as “mast cells,” release a substance called histamine that attaches to receptors in blood vessels causing them to enlarge. Histamine also binds to other receptors causing redness, swelling, itching and changes in secretion.
