Though Fort Collins didn’t make the top 20 list for highest pollen rates in the nation for 2015, we still hear from numerous patients each week who complain of allergies, especially with all the cotton flying all over town. Many express a desire to treat their symptoms more naturally without having to get allergy shots.
Thankfully, there is an answer. At Aspen Wellness Center we stock a very important product called Allergena, Allergena acts as a homeopathic sublinqual immunotherapy to reduce your bodiy’s negative reaction to allergies. These homeopathic allergy drops that you administer under your tongue build immunity by giving micro doses of what a person is allergic to so the body becomes safely conditioned to tolerate those allergens and reduce allergic symptoms.
Allergena is geographically zoned for your specific region in the US, is safe to take with other medications and has no known side effects. Most people either experience relief in a matter of hours and others in a one to four weeks.
Frequent administration of Allergena is essential to help boost the immune system. For best results, severe and long allergy sufferers should begin Allergena about two weeks before the allergy season at a recommended dosage of 15 drops under the tongue three times per day. If you experience an acute allergic attack, then take 6 drops per hour until symptoms begin to reside. Then two weeks after allergy season, you can reduce intake to 5-8 drops under the tongue once per day as needed. Be sure to allow drops to slowly be absorbed orally before swallowing. For those who suffer from extreme allergies, a heightened allergic reaction may occur when you first start taking Allergena. However, if this happens, don’t be alarmed at this response. If you experience a headache after taking Allergena decrease dose to a tolerable level. Then increase dose slowly over a period of two weeks.
In the meantime, here are a few more survival tips that can help:
- With the help of a medical professional, learn what pollen, grasses and trees you are allergic to.
- Eat foods that have anti-inflammatory properites that can help your body combat allergies, such as yogurt or other fermented foods, garlic, apples, broccoli and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids.
- Exercise early in the morning or later in the early part of the evening, as pollen counts are lowest during those times
