Dangers lurk in your environment everyday! For one person it may cause mild reactions, and for another person, it could cause severe immune reactions. So, what are these “dangers”? These “dangers” can come in many different forms such as mold, dander from pets, chemicals or pollen’s in the grass and trees, chemicals in foods and more. The challenge per person is dependent on how reactive your immune system is to any of these. Right now is the perfect time for mold to grow and when leaves get wet this makes mold worse. Dust mites get scattered around your living space when the heater gets put on for the first time in months. Molds and mites are tricky ones because you cannot always seem them but your immune system definitely can be reacting to them!
If you have been having symptoms that are similar to a cold that never seems to go away, you could be suffering from allergies to your environment. There are different signs and sometimes “time” can be the indicator, but who time to “wait it out”? If you have teary eyes, a scratchy throat or a runny nose and it seems to be seasonal without being contagious then most likely it is an environmental allergy, because colds are contagious but allergies are not! You do not have to suffer from those symptoms or take over the counter medications that cause more symptoms. No, instead you can find out exactly what you are allergic to by taking an Inhalant Allergens test! This test will not require a doctor pricking you all over your body with needles- I promise! This is a very easy test with extensive testing for outdoor allergens such as pollen’s from trees, grass, and weeds, to indoor allergens like cat and dog mites! It also covers molds too! When your results come back, you will be able to recognize the dangers surrounding you, and you will be given a protocol on how to manage your symptoms naturally!
