Allergy Season

by Dr. Greg Lamont-Mitchell

It’s allergy season again and it’s predicted to be a bad year for allergy sufferers. Over the past few years there has been an increase in intensity and duration of allergy season due to climate change. But don’t fear, at Emerge we have an arsenal of treatments available to help defeat allergy symptoms like a stuffy or runny nose, watery and itchy eyes, sneezing, wheezing, hives and rashes. For allergy sufferers, knowledge of allergy season is key to reducing your symptoms and enjoying the outdoors.

In the Northwest tree pollen is usually high in March, April, and May; and just when the tree pollen starts to subside, pollen from grasses starts to rise. Grass pollen levels are usually high in May, June, and July. They begin to decline when the weed pollen season kicks in. Weed pollen is usually high in August, September, and into October. Pollen.com has a National Allergy Map that gives up to date information on pollen counts and has an app available that gives regional forecasts so you can better plan your activities during allergy season. It’s good to know what types of pollen are high and which you may be more reactive to, as there are treatments based on the different types of pollen out there.

At Emerge Natural Health Care we have doctors that can help you with your allergies. We offer many types of treatment ranging from homeopathy to acupuncture to help you feel better.

Don’t let your allergies make you miserable and keep you from doing the things you love to do.
