For many individuals springtime is associated with sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, nasal congestion, sore throat, which are all symptoms of seasonal allergies. More than nine million Canadian adults, that is more than 1 in 6 Canadians, suffer from seasonal allergies typically associated with airborne pollen from trees, grass and weeds. Most people find relief from their symptoms with antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays or allergy shots. Unfortunately these solutions are short-term results that only address the symptoms and do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. Allergies are a sign that your immune system is overloaded and out of balance. This typically occurs because the lymphatic system is congested and cannot properly clean up and move inflammatory agents out of the body. About 80% of your immune system is housed in your digestive tract therefore you need to heal the digestive tract in order to take control of your allergies.
