Allergy / Hay Fever Info
Hayfever refers to a condition where an allergic inflammation occurs in the nasal airways. Hayfever is also referred to as allergic rhinitis. It occurs when an allergen, such as pollen, dust or animal hair and skin is inhaled by an individual with a sensitized immune system to that particular allergen. In these people, the allergen promotes the production of antibodies (specifically immunoglobulin E - or IgE.) IgE in turn binds to specific immunological cells (mast cells and basophil cells) that produce histamine (which in turn promotes sneezing to clear passageways.) When the allergy is caused by plant pollen, it is pollinosis, if caused by grass pollen specifically, then it is colloquially referred to as hay fever. Which is a bit misleading as eventhough symptoms resembling a cold or flu can occur during an allergic reaction to grass pollen (including hose used to make hay,) it does not cause a fever.
When IgE binds to mast cells, histamine is produced. The presence of histamine in the blood stream will cause sneezing, as well as itchy and watery eyes, swelling and inflammation of the nasal passages, and increased mucus production. Symptoms vary in severity between individuals. Very sensitive individuals can experience hives or other rashes. Matter contained as particulate granules in polluted air, and chemicals such as chlorine and detergents, can also aggravate allergic rhinitis.
Allergies are common. Heredity and environmental exposures may contribute to a predisposition. It is estimated that one in three people have an allergy at any given time and at least three in four people develop an allergic reaction at least once in their lives.
Allergic rhinitis may be seasonal or perennial. Seasonal hay fever occurs particularly during pollen seasons. It does not usually develop until after 6 years of age. Perennial allergic rhinitis occurs throughout the year. This type of allergic rhinitis is commonly seen in younger children.
An immune system already compromised by longstanding nutrient deficiencies or exposure to toxins (pesticides, medical drugs, food allergens etc) will be more reactive to other substances that may not cause an allergic response in a healthier body.
Cross-reactivity may occur in people suffering from hayfever e.g. someone allergic to birch pollen may also find that they have an allergic reaction to the skin of apples or potatoes. A clear sign of this is the occurrence of an itchy throat after eating an apple or sneezing when peeling potatoes or apples. This is because the similarity of the peptides that make up the the proteins of different pollen and food substances (like apples, potatoes and certian nuts.)
Dealing with initial allergy symptoms should include avoiding the known allergens and ensuring that your home environment is kept clean; regular vacuuming and use of an air purifier may help here. Additionally, there are natural health remedies available that may help with allergies. Dietary supplementation with Vitamin D, C, and E as well as magnesium, fish oil, stinging nettle and spirulina may help ease the symptoms of allergies by conferring your body with an ideal balance of nutrients and minerals directed at improving immune responses and reducing allergic reactions.
Had high hopes
Every year I get slammed by hayfever, affecting my eyes severely. I've been taking Solgar Quercetin daily for a couple of months but in last few days I've had severe hayfever symptoms and I'm back on antihistamines and medicated eye drops. The Quercetin may have held my hayfever at bay but it's not effective now.
Good Hayfever Relief
I had a sudden onset of hayfever a couple of months ago. Raw throat, dry eyes, sneezing - horrible headache etc. Started taking one tablet twice daily for symptoms. Good relief quickly, then just take one tablet in the morning. Basically dealt with all my symptoms, I certainly notice if I don't take them. Great product!
Congest-X - Great
Since taking Congest-X I hardly ever use my Symbicort ventilator and have noticed I am not coughing near so much. Thank you.
