A Natural Solution to Spring Environmental Threats can change your mood.
Seasonal environmental threats suck right? Brain fog. Irritable. Dehydrated. Sound familiar? A Natural Solution to Spring environmental threats can change your mood.
I was at the paint store the other day and the cashier say’s to me “Oh, so sorry…what were we talking about? My seasonal environmental threats are killing me and I’m all spaced out from the Claritin pill!”
Does this have to be the reality? Well, I’m here to share with you it does not have to be the reality. 🙂
First and foremost, seasonal threats are a way for your body stating I have excess water retention and something is causing me to be uncomfortable. During a high environmental seasonal threat, your body has an immune reaction when exposed to different allergens and forms allergy-specific antibodies (called immunoglobulins), which sit on cells in your eyes, nose, lungs and skin. The next time you come into contact with a particular allergen, your body reacts by releasing chemicals called histamines, leading to a seasonal reaction. Also, food sensitivities can also contribute to flare ups.
Seasonal triggers can be from SO many different Environmental Contaminants such as household and environmental chemicals which put stress on our immune defenses.
The Root Cause may be from the food you are eating or lack of nourishing food you are eating. Too many processed foods, sugar, caffeine, alcohol. This is why a 7 – Day Elimination Diet is a “no brainer” especially for Spring.
Allergy flare ups can be caused from adrenal fatigue too. Fight or flight response. Severe exercising, stress, insomnia to name a few. I used to have adrenal fatigue, eczema, used steroid creams and a lot of antibiotics to combat Sinus Infections every Spring.
As you see, there are a lot of things to consider. Consider the “Whole Picture” and get to the root cause.
Overuse of medication such as antibiotics, NSAID’s (Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Steroid Drugs) all damage thesmall intestine villi and causes excess water retention.
Top 5 Foods To Reduce Seasonal Threats:
1) Green Tea or Nettle Tea
2) Mediterranean Diet: This diet includes lots of fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, fish, and olive oil, with a lesser amount of meat.
3) Spices – Turmeric, Paprika, Cayenne, Garlic, Licorice Root (excellent source)
4) Clear Soup Broth – Bone broth or Miso soup
5) Herbs – Cilantro, Basil, Parsley
Lastly, really take a look at the products you are applying to your body. Sun block, make-up, shampoo and household cleaning products. My new found love is Beauty Counter! Full of Clean products. Make-up and all!
Tri-Ease is a VERY effective way to reduce seasonal threats. It is one soft gel capsule that contains Lemon Oil (flushes synthetic elements from the body), Lavender Oil (calming and great for itchy eyes), Peppermint Oil is a vasodilator and will clear your airways and invigorate your mind.
I hope you found these tips helpful and that you and your family can enjoy the outdoors without having a seasonal environmental attack. 🙂
