by Airbiotics October 11, 2017Spring is only a few days away which mean seasonal allergy sufferers will be stuck sneezing, wheezing and reaching for a box of tissues. Nasal allergies affect up to 50 million people in the U.S., affecting 30 percent of adults and up to 40 percent of children. The scientific name, allergic rhinitis more commonly goes by the name hay fever, and can cause symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose and watery eyes.
What Are Some Ways To Help Reduce Spring Allergies?
Take off your shoes before entering the house: Believe it or not, a lot of pollen can actually collect on your shoes and you might unknowingly be bringing it back into your home. Leave your shoes outside and don’t track it indoors.
Wash your hair daily: Pollen also gets in your hair. If you’re going to sleep all the pollen you’ve collected that’s now stores in your hair will get on your pillow. Washing your hair before bedtime can help remedy this.
De-stress: Your allergies are more likely to flare up when your body is pumping cortisol and other stress hormones. If you’re feeling stressed you should take preventative methods, like meditation and exercise in order to lessen your allergy symptoms.
Use the Airbiotics Mist on your bedding:Dust mitesare insidious, feeding off dead skin cells and living up to 70 days! They are found in 90 percent of homes and are a prime cause of allergies. Every four days, use theAirbiotics Miston your pillowcases and bed sheets and then wash in water that’s at least 140 degrees you’ll kill the dust mites that live on your bed, and wash away their food supply: your dead skin cells. The live Probiotics in the Airbiotics formula compete with the dust mites on the microscopic level and eliminate them significantly.
Switch to hardwood floors: Carpeting and rugs can become a hive for dust mites as well as a collection of the pollen that enters your house. Vacuuming and cleaning actually releases these microbes into the air, as anyone who has done spring cleaning can clearly observe. Hardwood floors don’t trap dander, so try switching to tile, linoleum or marble.
