Keeping Allergies At Bay

It seems like as soon as the weather turns warmer, the trees begin to get their leaves and the grass turns green that there are sounds of people sneezing and coughing. Seasonal allergies can make life difficult, sometimes making it almost impossible to go outside to enjoy the warm sunshine and the beautiful colors. Fortunately, there are a few solutions that will make allergies a bit easier to deal with, such as visiting the Asthma and Allergy Center Hunterdon County, NJ  to see what it offers. Most allergy centers will perform tests to determine what sets off your allergies, giving you medications to help deal with the symptoms.

If you do venture outdoors, leave your shoes at the door when you go back inside the house. This will prevent grass and other debris from the yard from getting into the home. If you're doing any kind of yard work, then take a shower when you get done so that you wash away the grass and pollen that flies around. This can help prevent any sneezing or coughing that might occur if you leave grass on you for even a short while.

You can stop allergies in their tracks by rinsing the sinuses with saline solution. There are products on the market now that make it easy to wash the entire nasal cavity so that it's free of any allergens that might be present. You can also spray saline in the nose each day to get rid of any pollen that lingers.

Another idea to consider, at least during the spring, is to eat more chicken than beef. Cows usually eat just grass and hay while chickens are often fed other types of food. The grass and hay can pass through the cow into the beef that is made from them, transferring to your body as well even in some small way. Consider taking a capsule of fish oil each day to help in preventing allergies. If you don't want to change the diet or take supplements, then wear a large sun hat and sunglasses to cover the face as much as possible so that you're not breathing in allergens from outside.
