It’s Time To Finally Combat Springtime Allergies – InVite Health Podcast, Episode 306
Invite Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Jerry Hickey. Ph
This is the time of year that so many people wait for. We have more daylight, the temperatures are getting warmer and yes, it is also the time for spring allergies. We know that seasonal allergies in this country really start to rev up in the spring. This is when you start to have trees that are beginning to flower and they have all these different pollens that are getting released into the air. It really varies from one part of the country to the next, but we certainly know that this is a really problematic time of year for so many people. You want to get outside and you want to enjoy those warmer temperatures and more daylight hours, but yet you’re out there, contending with all of these different allergens that are potentially creating a significant amount of havoc in your life. I want to talk a little bit about springtime allergies and give you some tips as to how you can promote overall respiratory wellness.†
The Problem With Over-The-Counter Medications
We know that many Americans are dealing with springtime allergies. When we look at the worldwide numbers, it is astronomical. What we recognize in this country is that we have a whole heck of a lot of people that have this allergic rhinitis, often called hay fever or seasonal allergies. This is really problematic because it can create havoc in your life in terms of time loss from work because you’re not as productive as you’d like to be due to a stuffy head and runny nose. All of these things can impact your day-to-day normal function.†
For many people, what they do is they turn to over-the-counter antihistamines. The problem with those is sometimes they come with their own nasty side effects. We can look at the way that they can impact neurotransmitter release. We can also look at how they impact people in ways that they notice. Someone can take an antihistamine for a runny nose and the next thing they know, they’re really dried up. While you’re happy because your nose is no longer running, now you feel like you went to the polar opposite side and now you have a clogged nose.†
We know that oftentimes, people are looking for ways to mitigate this. If you know that you are prone to those seasonal allergy changes, then you should be proactive in your approach to this and start to allow your immune system to ready itself for the assault that is around the corner.†

Nutrients that are beneficial for seasonal allergies
We look at things like probiotics, for example. We know that the really lovely blend of those five different strains of probiotic found in our Probiotic Hx do so much in terms of enhancing our immune system’s way of fending off things such as tree pollen, grass pollen and all of the things that can trigger an allergic response. That’s first and foremost. Definitely have Probiotic Hx on board before you even start to get into your common allergy season.†
Then, let’s look at something like Respiratory Hx. The name in and of itself implies that this is going to be beneficial for the overall respiratory system. Part of the respiratory system includes the nasal passageways and the sinuses. In this particular formulation, you have a blend of Vitamin C, Mangosteen Extract and Quercetin. These nutrients provide antioxidant protection and powerful vitamins and minerals, while also offering support for the respiratory system, including the sinuses. We also know that Quercetin does a really remarkable job in terms of detoxification, so with exposures to different pollutants in the air, Quercetin is very targeted to help with that metabolic detoxification. When we’re looking at things from nature, they’re usually not just limited to one superb benefit for human health. It’s usually multiple ways in which these nutrients are working.†
