Seasonal allergies cause many people to dread the seasonal change, here’s how you can train your immune system and fight back!
The human gut is meant to harbor trillions of bacterium that help regulate your body. This might sound gross, but it’s science! Some seasonal allergies are triggered by insufficient bacteria, or too much bad bacteria, in your gut. For many, a key strategy in eliminating seasonal allergies involves getting your gut healthy.
- Use Gut-Healing Nutrients
Probiotics introduce good bacteria into your gut to improve digestion and reduce inflammation. Quercetin, zinc, curcumin, and fish oil all relieve symptoms from seasonal allergies. Foods like Greek yogurt contain probiotics that can help your allergies.
- Elimination Diet
Functional medicine requires that you remove the bad and put in the good. Eliminate common toxic triggers like wheat, corn, some dairy, and alcohol. Avoid anything that contains processed sugar or trans fats and eat food like nuts, avocados, and omega-3 fats from fish.
A healthy gut, along with proper exercise, is required for a healthy body. Try a dance, yoga, or Pilates class to kick start your mind’s purification process. Contact One Body Studios in La Habra, California to learn more about the cleansing power of getting moving!
