When allergies hit, it can be easy to point the finger first at pollen, dust, and other environmental factors. While these floating particles in the air can be irritating, they're not the only reason allergies are triggered. When the body is feeling run down, fatigued, and in over-drive, it can feel weaker and more defenseless against allergens. Strengthening the body can help prevent or improve allergic symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose, and congestion.
Which areas of the body can you strengthen to help find relief from allergies? The adrenal glands, the immune system, the nervous system, and the circulatory system. Each of these systems is connected to each other and helps your body build a natural barrier to environmental factors. When we're feeling weak or run down, the barrier becomes weaker as well and we're more vulnerable to triggers such as pollen and dust. Let's explore how to strengthen each of the systems in the body to boost our natural defenses against allergens.
