Vitamins for Allergies

My allergies are really acting up and I feel sick all the time. My eyes are red and itchy, I have sinus congestion and some wheezing. I don’t like taking those over-the-counter medications because of the side effects. Is there anything natural I can do? Thank you. Maggie S.

Thank you, Maggie, for your question. I’m not surprised that your allergies are acting up because right now we are in the middle of ragweed season. Take a look at these statistics:

  • Ragweed allergy is a leading cause of allergic rhinitis (hay fever), which affects more than 23 million people in the United States.
  • 75% of people who are allergic to pollen are also allergic to ragweed.

Allergies are an abnormal reaction by the body’s immune system to normally occurring substances in the environment. So many people experience allergy symptoms and know how they can negatively affect their health and quality of life.

Dr. Hotze with Giant Ragweed

Ragweed pollen season began in late July and will continue until the first freeze, which usually occurs sometime in December. The giant ragweed, which you can see in the above photo, causes severe allergies in many people, however there are also many other different weeds that pollinate and cause airborne allergy symptoms, too. The weed pollens are airborne pollens and can travel 400 to 600 miles in the wind.

When cool fronts begin to arrive in late September and early October, they carry weed pollens from as far away as southern Kansas. 40% of Americans have a genetic predisposition toward allergy, and 20% are severe enough to need allergy desensitization treatment.

Low Dose Immunotherapy (LDI) – A Breakthrough Allergy Treatment

Did you know that you can greatly reduce and even eliminate your allergy and asthma symptoms naturally through allergy desensitization treatment? At the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, we use Low Dose Immunotherapy (LDI), which is an allergy treatment available for chemical, environmental, and food sensitivities. LDI can treat significantly more sensitivities than conventional allergy shots, and it has a much lower risk of a serious allergic reaction (like anaphylaxis) because the dose is so small. LDI desensitizes you to more than 300 common airborne irritants, foods and chemicals. It can be used safely used in both adults and children.

We are administering LDI sublingually (under the tongue), which means you can take your dose at home – just put your allergy drops under your tongue at the designated date and time. It’s that easy! Not more trips to the doctor’s office for allergy shots.

There are also many lifestyle tips you can do to help avoid allergens. Click here for 10 Tips to Fight Fall Allergies.
