Allergies, Air Quality And Tips For Drug-Free Allergy Relief

Are you struggling with allergies and want drug-free allergy relief? Dr. Thomas Polucki shares some tips to help you breathe easier naturally.

By Dr. Thomas Polucki 

Got allergies? You’re not alone: One third of all Americans suffer with various allergies, some seasonal, some not. That’s more than 100 million of us. The air quality where you work, play and live certainly plays a role. But if you are looking for lasting drug-free allergy relief, there’s more to it than just what’s in the air. 

Allergies cost our health system $18 billion a year. But lasting relief from allergies is not about what drug, like an antihistamine, temporarily treats what symptom. The real key to lasting allergy relief is getting your immune system to behave normally, because, in the simplest terms, an allergy is an over-reaction of your immune system to a harmless substance.

Improving Stress Management Also Key to Lasting Drug-Free Allergy Relief

Sure, our air quality is not always great, but it doesn’t affect everyone the same way. Stress also affects our body’s two main control systems differently in each of us. Our hormone and nerve systems electro-chemically manage every other subsystem the body, including immune and respiratory systems. 

How to Breathe Easier During Allergy Season

  • Whenever possible, manage your air quality. If you can, get some help from these air purifying plants.
    • Exercise outdoors early in the morning. Better air quality, and more cortisol circulating in your system to manage inflammation from airborne irritants.
    • Wear a dust mask when you have no control over your surroundings.
    • Hydrastis Canadensis is a remarkably effective homeopathic remedy for post-nasal drip.

The best approach to lasting drug-free allergy relief must include more than just reducing irritant exposure and treating symptoms. Even over-the-counter antihistamines can have serious side effects. And most people, given the choice, would prefer not to take drugs unless they believe they have to.

Frustrated with side effects from allergy drugs? Read on! 

Functional medicine finds the subtle chemical imbalances and hidden injuries that hold you back from lasting allergy relief. 

The next step is to repair and restore function naturally, without drugs, surgery, needles, twisting and cracking, or multi-level-market schemes. 

I design each of my patients’ programs individually, with these goals: 

  • Discover your personal nutritional requirements, finding the best foods to reduce your allergies;
  • Clear the detoxification pathways, flushing out the irritants that keep you congested;
  • Re-establish the disrupted hormonal pathways, helping you breathe easier;
  • Design stress reduction, relaxation and breathing exercises best suited for the condition;
  • Support the repair of connective tissues, getting you moving to support better immune function.

These goals can make allergies a lot easier for you. And what that really means is freedom to enjoy more outdoor activities with the people you care about most.
