Trees stand tall and majestic. They help shade us from the sun, they are beautiful to look at and they help to make resources we need. When the seasons change is when most people with allergies will have the worst symptoms. Warm, windy days also make the allergy symptoms worse since the winds pick up the tree pollen and spread it around.
Did you know that if you have tree allergies then you may have a worse allergy reaction to certain fruits? If you are allergic to birch trees then you may also be allergic to almonds, apples, carrots, celery, cherries, coriander, fennel, hazelnuts, kiwi, peaches, pears, or plums.
There are many trees that people can be reacting to. These include ash, aspen, beech, birch, box elder, cedar, cottonwood, elm, hickory, mountain elder, mulberry, oak, pecan and willow. The most allergenic plant is ragweed which can cause allergic rhinitis symptoms. People in Texas seem to be reacting often to mountain cedar and it gets worse in the springtime. The maple tree allergies get worse in early spring and there is a lot in the eastern US and Canada. The elm is also in the eastern US and the mid-west and it too peaks in the springtime.
Allergy symptoms happen but it is important to know exactly what you are reacting to so you can take the necessary precautions. We offer our allergy testing home kit which can be shipped anywhere within the US. We also have supportive products to help reduce allergy season reactions and improve life quality.
