(Luckily for you, if you’re reading this blog that means you have found one of the best.) Go outside and enjoy the summer without the constant threat of allergies getting in your way. How? Let us explain:
Allergies are your immune system “protecting” you from proteins in the environment. These proteins can be trees, grasses weeds, molds and any plant that pollinates in the air. This is why summer allergies are so prominent, pollination is at its peak in the summer. According to the ACAAI (American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology), “…pollen, mold and insect stings are common allergy culprits during the summer months. But fresh produce, such as celery, apples and melons, can also cause allergy symptoms. This is known as food pollen syndrome, cross-reacting allergens found in both pollen and raw fruits, vegetables and some tree nuts.”
Now that you know WHY your summer allergies are bothering you, let’s focus on HOW you can find relief. We pick the allergens in your geographical region; places that you have been in and are most commonly in. Next we do some detective work to see how different allergens in your region are reacting to one another. (Many allergens cross react with other outdoor allergens around the country.) Some of these are spring and summer trees, spring and summer grasses, ragweed, other weeds, chenopods, composites, farm mix and other plants that pollinate through the air. Next we produce a treatment plan that is suited to your needs. Your trusted Colorado allergy and asthma clinic can cure your allergies with injections or immunotherapy. It is effective 75% of the time.
You are not alone in your fight against allergies. One third of the world has allergies. That is one of every three persons has allergies. In the United States that is over 100,000,000 people. If you are among these people suffering from allergies, don’t hesitate to contact the Allergy and Asthma Center of the Rockies today.
