Allergies are the body's response to a perceived threat: as the immune system mistakes an incoming substance as harmful, it releases histamines and creates antibodies to repel this substance. This is what leaves you feeling itchy, scratchy and sneezy. To this end, we can control the frequency and severity of allergy "attacks" with diet; consuming ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties and nutrients that support the immune system should go to the top of any allergy sufferer's list.
Don't let yourself languish under an allergy cloud this summer. Call our office in Milpitas and start taking steps to reduce the hold that allergies have on your life the natural way.
