If you live in an area where winter means cold, rain, and snow, by the end of February, it’s likely that you are dreaming of spring. Trees, flowers, and grass come back to life, the birds start to chirp, and color returns to the environment. Best of all, the warmth of the sun can be felt again when you go outside.
Unfortunately, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, “Tens of millions of Americans suffer allergy symptoms caused by exposure to tree, grass and weed pollens.” This turns spring from a beautiful array of warmth and colors into a nightmare of pollen, sneezing, and watery, itchy eyes.
Any allergy sufferer will tell you they have tried everything to get relief from symptoms. These symptoms may include varying degrees of any or all of the following:
- Nasal congestion or a runny nose
- Watery and/or itchy eyes
- Itchy throat
Depending on where you live in the United States, spring allergies may come as early as February and stay as late as July. It is no surprise that people who suffer from the above symptoms for months on end strive to find relief.
Many people who suffer from allergies use not just one method of relief, but two or three. Pharmaceutical companies earn billions of revenue off selling products to allergy sufferers. The four main drugs people use for treatment are:
- Leukotrienes Blockers
Now, many people are looking for more natural methods of allergy relief.
Probiotics for Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis
Allergic rhinitis is the technical term used for people who suffer from allergy symptoms when pollen from trees, grass, and weeds get into their nasal cavity, in other words, spring allergies. “It is a skewed immune reaction to common antigens in the nasal mucosa…” Because this is an immune issue explains why a probiotic might be beneficial to treat the symptoms experienced by those suffering from allergic rhinitis.
The lining of your intestine makes up over 70% of your immune system. If your intestine is not healthy your immune system will not be functioning at its optimum efficiency. Probiotics help promote the balance of good bacteria in your gut, benefitting your entire system. According to recent studies, this will also help your immune system fight off the symptoms of spring allergies as well.
While probiotics add good bacteria to your gut, they also prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. You may be taking a probiotic to help with seasonal allergy relief, you may also know improvement in the following areas:
- Weight Loss
- Improvement in skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea
- Mood disorders
