Tired of suffering from red, itchy eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, coughing and other common symptoms of seasonal allergies?

How can you get rid of your allergies? In this video I discuss the root cause of seasonal allergies and offer some tips on how to experience relief.

The first step to seasonal allergy relief is addressing the WHY. Seasonal allergies are an overreaction of the immune system, usually to ragweed or pollen. But what is behind this overreaction?

The #1 root cause of seasonal allergies is gut problems. A problematic gut can weaken your immune system and make you more inclined to get frequent colds, flus and malaise OR it can create an overreaction in the immune system, setting you up for allergic reactions.

Besides fixing your gut, there are some things you can do to experience relief.

Try using Allersol from QOL Labs. Allersol is a blend of perilla seed extract, quercetin, stinging nettle and bromelain. Here’s how these ingredients work together to reduce allergy symptoms:

  • Perilla seed extract curbs production of mast cells. Your body uses mast cells to attack irritants (like pollen). Unfortunately mast cells create a flood of histamine in the body which leads to redness, runny nose, itchy eyes and many other common allergy symptoms. Decreasing mast cell production helps curb many symptoms of allergies.
  • Quercetin is an antioxidant that prevents tissue breakdown and calms the immune system
    Stinging Nettle is a powerful anti-inflammatory
  • Bromelain is a digestive enzyme found in pineapples that also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties

Other habits that can relieve allergy symptoms include saline washes (to clean out pollen and other irritants from the nasal passages) and vigorous exercise. Many allergy medications contain steroids because they reduce allergic reactions. Vigorous exercise increases adrenaline and cortisol in the body, essentially creating your own natural steroids.

The root cause of allergies is still found in the gut so don’t forget that healing the gut should be a priority for any allergy sufferer. In the meantime, though, Allersol and the habits mentioned above can help relieve your most challenging allergy symptoms.
