    Spring Free from Seasonal Allergies

    Breathe Easier with Holistic and Traditional Treatments

    SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 17, 2011 - Sneezing and coughing this Spring and aren’t sure what to do about it? Perhaps you’ve heard the hype about Neti Pots but wonder if you can use them with your inhaler. Many factors can influence the severity, presence and treatment of seasonal allergies. The allergy specialists in the Sutter Health network can help you understand how the local climate, your home environment and even stress can trigger an allergic reaction – and how you can relieve your symptoms with holistic or traditional treatments.

    Finding the Best Fit for You

    During an allergic reaction, your immune system responds to environmental irritants such as pollen, mold and dust as though they are foreign invaders — releasing an army of chemicals in the eyes, nose, mouth and lungs. It’s this defensive approach and increase in chemicals that cause common allergy symptoms — itching, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, coughing and wheezing. Seasonal changes, genetics, personal history and individual triggers all play roles in making an individual more or less susceptible to allergies.
