Allergies in Montana

Spring time is in the air. The grass is green, the sun is shining and flowers start to bloom. It's a beautiful time of year unless..... you have allergies. An allergy is a reaction from your immune system to a foreign substance. Normally, your immune system protects you from certain types of infection and illness with antibodies. With an allergy, your immune system identifies an allergen as something harmful when it really isn't. Your immune system responds with a reaction that can inflame your sinuses, airways, skin and digestive system.

There are a variety of substances that can cause an allergic reaction. Listed below are a few different 

substances to be aware of.

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Food
  • Mold spores
  • Insect stings
  • Pet dander
  • Medicines

Symptoms from allergies can vary depending on what substance your body is allergic too. Here are a few things that you can do throughout the allergy season to help with your symptoms.

  1. Get Adjusted- It helps the nervous system function how it should and avoids mixed signals and can help "reboot" your immune system

  2. Wash your pets -they can carry lots of allergens into your house from the outdoors

  3. Hardwood floors- do not trap allergens as easy

  4. Dehumidify - Dust mites reproduce faster in humid weather- don't allow them this by dehumidifying your house

  5. Allergy avoidance wearing eye protection or staying inside and keeping windows closed on windy days

  6. Homeopathic remedies such as Peppermint Tea

  7. Allergy Shots if the top ones don't help

  8. Allergy Medication such as Benadryl or a Saline Solution 

  9. Move somewhere else than Montana or live in a bubble

Allergy reactions can vary in range from very severe and sometimes life threatening to very mild and manageable. Allergy prevention is dependent on the type of allergy you have, but it is important to be aware of general guidelines on how to prevent or lessen allergy symptoms. Avoiding known triggers is something to always keep in mind, and keep a diary of what worsens your symptoms, when they occur and your activities. Also, specific allergy tests done by an allergy specialist can be used to help identify your allergy triggers.  Talk to us about your allergies and if you need help finding a specialist.
