Can Allergies be Avoided or Decreased Via Detoxification?

Girl With FlowersAs warmer weather approaches, allergies are in full bloom for many people. It's difficult to "stop and smell the roses" when they make you sneeze. And forget about enjoying a peaceful walk in the sunshine. The pollen and dander-filled breeze can cause a scratchy throat that lasts for days. For others with food allergies, the introduction of seasonal dishes often leads to a flare-up. If you suffer from allergies, here are some tips from Get Well Natural.


Detoxification Tips that Support Allergy-Free Health*

Dr. Graeme ShawFrom an Eastern Medicine point of view, allergies are the result of dysfunction of the spleen (chronic allergies) and liver energies (seasonal allergies). Since allergies may be worsened when higher levels of toxins are present in the body, an efficient detoxification program can be an important tool to support the body's natural cleaning processes like healthy organ function, toxin elimination, lymphatic drainage and circulation. In "Allergies: How Detoxification Can Better Support the Body," Dr. Graeme Shaw details the detox methods that have helped he and his patients support their bodies the natural way*.


Common Allergies and Their Symptoms

Family Picnic in the ParkAccording to the National Institute of Health, "an allergy is an exaggerated immune response or reaction to substances that are generally not harmful." Common allergy triggers (known as allergens) include pollen, pet dander, bee venom and certain foods. Classic symptoms include itchy/watery eyes, sneezing, nasal congestion, wheezing, swelling or a rash. Anaphylaxis can also be a symptom of a serious allergy. According to the MayoClinic, the signs of anaphylaxis include loss of consciousness, severe shortness of breath, rapid/weak pulse, nausea, swelled airways and more.  Specific types of allergies include:

  • Hay Fever is a seasonal allergy that affects the eyes, nose and throat
  • Atopic Dermatitis is a skin condition (commonly known as eczema) that results in red, itchy and/or flaking skin
  • Food Allergies may cause tingling mouth, facial swelling, hives, etc. Common culprits include peanuts, soy, wheat, dairy, milk or certain fruits
  • Insect Sting Allergies are commonly caused by bees, and result in swelling, hives, chest tightness, cough and more
  • Drug Allergies may cause hives, facial swelling, wheezing and more
Good News! There are a number of things you can do to support your body's healthy abilities to better deal with allergens. See our "Spring Cleaning" ideas below as well as Dr. Graeme Shaw's article in the link above for helpful ideas.*

Spring Cleaning the Allergy-Free Way

VacuumingNow that spring has sprung, you may have started to think about "spring cleaning." When windows and doors are shut during the winter, dust piles up and can irritate allergies. Here are some pointers from WebMD:

  • Wash all sheets, comforters and blankets in hot water and use a fragrance-free laundry detergent 
  • Dry clean or vacuum window treatments
  • Vacuum and sweep under furniture
  • Dust or vacuum baseboards, vents, upholstery, blinds, windowsills, tops of ceiling fans, etc.
  • Search your house – inside and out – for mold

Turn air filters on high while you dust and vacuum and/or wear a mask and gloves for protection.

What Our Customers Are Saying:
Ever since I was a child, I have had allergies. I used to get allergy shots every 2-4 weeks and took numerous types of allergy medicines. This year my hay fever was much worse than in the past. In fact, there had been days when I was not able to stay outside because I was sneezing continuously, and my eyes were swollen. I have tried 3 different prescription allergy medicines and none of them have relieved all my symptoms.* I finally decided to try Get Well’s Aller Well since I really liked the philosophy of the doctors that developed this product. Their idea to use herbs to support an allergy-free body instead of treating symptoms of allergies is a great idea. I really appreciate this herbal dietary supplement and have used it all season to support my health.*
