How Do Seasonal Allergies Affect Your Body?
Spring, summer, and fall are the predominant seasons for allergic reactions to intrude into our daily lives. Read on to learn more about how seasonal allergies affect the body physically and mentally and how to help regain control through natural medicines and supplements that work.
Seasonal allergies often lead to nasal congestion and a feeling of fullness in your head, sinuses, and possibly ears. The mucus buildup in your nasal passages may lead to postnasal drip, where excess mucus runs down your throat.
Postnasal drip can cause a persistent cough and a sore, irritated throat. It may even disrupt your sleep. This can make breathing freely a challenge and cause significant discomfort during the day and night.
As a result, many allergy sufferers choose to confine themselves indoors during peak allergy seasons as venturing outside can worsen their symptoms, and you may opt for closed windows when you sleep. But staying inside too much and depriving yourself of fresh air can have you feeling moody and exhausted and is detrimental to your mental health.
Consider using remedies such as cell salt Nat Mur, the leading Schuessler tissue salt for hay fever and an excellent natural companion during allergy season. Not only does Nat Mur—or Natrum Muriaticum—redistribute moisture, it helps to rebalance the mucus in the nasal cavity, making you feel less congested and helping your sinuses drain naturally.
As climate change is becoming more prevalent each year, allergy seasons are becoming longer, making the need for Nat Mur even more important than ever.
Itchy, Puffy Eyes
This uncomfortable condition can interfere with your focus and concentration and make even the simplest tasks strenuous. After a day or more of dealing with scratchy eyes, you’ll likely find yourself feeling irritated and in need of quiet and rest.
If your allergies lead to multiple symptoms including itchy eyes, scratchy throat, swollen skin, and more, reach for Allergy Escape, a smart formula of homeopathy’s best ingredients to calm hypersensitivities.
Allergy Escape helps reduce reactions to pollen, dust, mold, dander, environmental irritants, and insect bites and can be taken alongside conventional allergy treatments. It isn’t habit forming and won’t cause drowsiness either, letting you get some much-needed relief without the risk of side effects.
Seasonal allergies often disrupt sleep patterns, adding another layer of distress for people prone to allergic reactions. For some, postnasal drip can intensify during the night, leading to frequent wakings due to coughing and discomfort. Additionally, congestion and difficulty breathing often result in fitful, unrestful sleep.
Inconsistent sleep can throw off the body’s natural circadian rhythm and lead to feelings of fatigue and malaise throughout the day. Plus, did you know that heightened fatigue can make you even more sensitive to allergens?
Our Allergy Defense Kit includes important natural remedies that stimulate your body’s own healing tendencies and is part of our homeopathic allergy and sinus remedies. It includes Allergy Escape, Elderberry Liquid Extract, and Detox Escort to help get you through the night and back to undisrupted sleep.

More Natural Ways to Address Seasonal Allergies
Detoxify Your Liver
Ensuring that your liver can filter your blood, produce bile, and process toxins is critical to naturally addressing seasonal allergies. The liver, which is your body’s primary detoxifying organ, cannot function at full strength when neglected and overwhelmed.
Over time, the liver can become less efficient at filtering out allergens from your bloodstream, potentially exacerbating allergic reactions. Consuming plenty of water aids in flushing these toxins from your system as well as thinning out mucus, helping to alleviate your nasal congestion and postnasal drip.
But often water alone is not enough in assisting a tired liver. We offer several natural ways to detoxify before or during allergy season—preferably every spring and fall.
Ideally a 6-week routine, you can opt to detox with homeopathy and our doctor-formulated Detox Escort Duo.
Or you can combine homeopathic and herbal medicine and add Olive Leaf Liquid Extract when choosing our Whole Body Detox Kit. Our organic Olive Leaf Extract adds a slightly more noticeable increase in bowel and antibacterial action.
You can continue for another month with Detox Cell Salts. Or you may want to use Detox Escort Duo/Whole Body Detox Kit every spring and Detox Cell Salts every fall, or vice versa.
Tissue salts Kali Mur, Calc Sulph, and liver specialist Nat Sulph which gently and thoroughly work to cleanse the blood and lymphatic system and support and invigorate your liver to alleviate the burden from toxins and other inefficiencies.
Tip: Use the three detox cell salts anytime for as long as needed if you feel your respiratory or gastric mucosa congested or too full making it hard to breathe, digest, or sleep. Take them directly in the mouth or add them to a glass of water after eating or before going to sleep for more comfort night and day.
By making it a priority to keep your body hydrated and your liver free of toxins, you’ll simultaneously address how seasonal allergies affect your body and nurture your body’s overall health.
Seasonal allergies can have a big effect on your quality of life if you don’t attend to your body. They can also act as a wake-up call to take your well-being into your own hands and discover new routines and clean products to reduce your hypersensitivities and find increased health overall.

Special Allergy Tips for Trick-or-Treaters
Halloween is just around the corner. Did you know it can come with its fair share of hidden allergies? Let’s quickly address those you should be on the lookout for.
Going door-to-door may mean that you come in contact with your neighbor’s pets. Those who suffer from pet dander allergies may want to distribute and pick up their treats in the yard or on the porch.
Dressing up in a costume often includes wearing makeup. Funky Halloween makeups may contain perfumes, dyes, and other chemicals which can be troublesome to those with sensitive skin.
Thinking about digging out an old Halloween costume? Wipe down previously worn costumes to help remove hiding dust mites and eliminate one of the worst allergy culprits.
Reused decorations including ghostly sheets, synthetic foliage, and bales of hay can trap in mold. Replace anything that is looking older than the creepy old ghost you have hanging out on your front porch.
This allergy also targets anyone going through a corn or hay maze which can develop mold in the cooler and damp fall weather.
They add a spooky element, don’t they? Unfortunately for some, they also can trigger an asthma attack. If you suffer from asthma, make sure to not get too close to houses that add this mysterious element to their Halloween setting.
