Seasonal Allergies by Dr. Michael Kane

 

One of the best things about spring and summer is the warm weather and the sun. In the excitement of spring many people have a dampened appreciation because of seasonal allergies. The common allergy symptoms of congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes and fatigue can be annoying for some or downright debilitating for others.  The common drugs to deal with allergies are not without side effects and interactions.

There are some simple things that can be done that are not medication-related to help make the season less of a problem. A good rinse...One of the most beneficial things is doing a nasal wash. This is a way to literally flush out the nasal passages with warm salt water. There are a number of ways to do this. One favorite is the Neti Pot: a ceramic pot with a long spout that fits into one nostril. You bend over the sink and let the warm salt water run in one nostril and out the other. While this may sound undesirable to some, it is effective in getting rid of those tiny particles of dust, pollen or other allergens that we inhale. Most people get used to it very easily.  

Taking control....We have no control over the release of pollen, but often we can reduce the other allergens that might affect us like dust, dust mites, and molds. Air filtration can be expensive but helpful. A simple cost-effective solution is making a fan filter. Take a rectangular box fan and some cardboard framed furnace filters and duct tape. Tape the filters to the side of the fan that intakes the air. Let the fan run in your bedroom while you are not there and turn it off when you return. Replace the filter when it gets dirty.

The other thing to consider is diet. For many of us there are certain foods that might contribute to our allergic disposition. Food sensitivities and food allergies are two different things. Those immediate food allergies that people may have are things like reactions to shell fish or peanuts, these cause those immediate reactions.

Food sensitivities might cause milder and less immediate symptoms. These foods could contribute to the body's reactivity or overall body burden making allergy season worse than it needs to be. There are blood tests for these foods. Ask your doctor about getting tested.

 

 

  Supplements to consider:  

 

"Aller C" this a combination of a bioflavinoid called Quercetin, an enzyme called bromelain and Vitamin C.  Together they help prevent the release of histamine, and prevent and break down congestion, but without the side effects associated with anti-histamine drugs.  

Stinging Nettles is a plant long associated with helping seasonal allergies. Research has specifically shown that stinging nettle leaf naturally controls histamines, which is why a growing number of doctors recommend taking a freeze-dried preparation before hay fever season begins. It can also be used as a tea or in tincture form. We usually recommend capsules of stinging nettle.

Homeopathic Desentization drops

These drops can assist your body to be less reactive to the environmental allergens that you may have. There are formulations come in various forms, tree pollen, grasses, animal dander and molds. Talk to your doctor to see what combination might best help you.

This is the time to start taking these measures so that you can get your body prepared for allergy season. So if you do suffer with seasonal allergies you can get the jump on the season and maybe celebrate the season change more whole heartedly.


A Snoring Solution 

by

DR. Michael Kane

 

 

Simon is a 42 year old man with a chronic history of nasal congestion. His congestion makes it so that he has trouble breathing through his nose especially at night.  This causes him to breathe through his mouth and causes him to snore at night.  He often will sleep alone because his partner can't stand his loud snoring.

The chronic congestion has been going on for years, he cannot remember when it stated. He does not notice any seasonal variation, but he does report having more of an issue during the winter with recurrent bouts of viral infections.

He has tried some over the counter decongestants and they have made him drowsy so he stopped using them.

We decided to complete some environmental allergy and food sensitivity testing on him. The testing revealed that he had a number of environmental allergies, the highest being dust mites, he also was reactive to mold, grasses and tree pollen. So pretty much an allergy for every season.

He had no immediate food allergies but he had a few food sensitivities. The blood tests revealed he had very high IgG antibodies to dairy and corn.

 

Treatment -

He avoided dairy and corn for 4 weeks.

He also purchased dust mite covers for his mattress and pillows.

He started doing a nasal wash daily with a Neti pot.

He stated a supplement called Aller C (querctin and vitamin c) which helps tone down the reactivity of the immune system to his triggers.

Outcome-

In three weeks time, he reported a 75 % reduction in his congestion.  His snoring resolved completely.

He also discovered that if he went into his damp basement he would notice an immediate plugging up of his nasal passages. We talked about ways to decrease the moisture and the mold supporting environment.  Running a dehumidifier in the basement helped reduce the moisture content and fixing a gutter helped reduce the water that was leaking into the basement as well.
