New York, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Some 40 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies, but you don’t have to be one of them. According to Dr. Josh Wagner, founder of The Life House in New York City, when it comes to warding off allergies, paying attention to the pollen and allergens count in your area isn’t nearly as important as tending to your own immune system.
"The underlying cause in people's allergy is not the excess pollen or allergens in the atmosphere, even when it is a high count,” says Wagner. “If that were the underlying factor, everyone would get sick and symptomatic. The underlying cause is your immune system being unable to successfully adapt and fend off these outside invaders."
Wagner suggests three surprising but highly effective ways to give your immune system a big boost – and thus help your body create natural immunity to the potentially miserable symptoms of pollen and allergens:
*Add and Subtract: Ensure your daily diet includes an inflammation reducing (and thus immune system enhancing) Omega-3 source food such as wild, cold water fish (preferable practitioner grade), along with adequate amounts of Vitamin’s C and D, says Wagner. “Some people are afraid nowadays to let their skin see the sun, but the sun is the primary reason there is life on this planet, because it allows H20 to be in the liquid state. In moderation, the sun is healthy for us, and our immune systems.”
Wagner adds that eliminating highly-processed and refined foods—hint: almost anything that comes in a plastic wrapper or box – will also help reduce inflammation in the body and boost your natural immunity.
*The Anti-Allergens ‘Dynamic Duo’: Two little-known but highly potent allergy fighters include raw garlic (use one bulb, chopped up and swallowed just like a pill) and Apple cider vinegar, just add a shot to a glass of water. “These simple but powerful additions to your daily diet will work wonders for many health concerns, but are especially potent in bolstering your system against allergens,” says Wagner.
*The Usual Suspects: When possible, simply avoid altogether the most common allergens – pet dander, for example – along with ragweed, pollen, dust mites, and air pollution. But when that’s impossible, take these steps: Install a quality air filter in your home, and especially in the room where you sleep. Keep any areas where water collects or lays dormant – dirty dishes collecting overnight in a wet sink, bathroom floors, etc., -- clean and dry, as they’re a breeding ground for mold growth. “Being proactive in your environment can make a huge difference in avoiding your exposure to allergens,” says Wagner.
