Experienced allergist offers Crystal Lake residents the option of holistic allergy treatment
Natural allergy relief
A holistic approach to natural allergy relief begins in the same place as conventional allergy treatment. You need to understand what triggers your allergies and how they affect you. Advanced Allergy & Asthma Associates is committed to accurate diagnosis so we can develop a treatment plan that lets you take your life back. The difference between holistic and conventional allergy relief methods lies in the treatment options available.
Some ways to treat your allergies naturally
- Once we have determined what is causing your allergies, a natural first step is to see if you can avoid them. This may involve simple lifestyle changes such as closing your windows, installing HEPA filters, using dust covers on mattresses, avoiding locations you know will trigger allergies, and staying indoors on high pollen count days. The doctor will help you explore more ways to minimize the effects allergens have on you.
- Herbs. Nettles are a natural antihistamine. We recommend to try to have nettle tea once daily.
- Saline nasal rinses. These can be an immense help in rinsing away allergens collected in your sinus cavities, and may aid in preventing sinus infections.
