Our Spring Special: 13 Tips for Avoiding Pollen

In spring, allergy sufferers have a difficult time. Due to the high pollen count, many people are affected by hay fever, which presents with an itching and burning sensation in the eyes and nose, coughing or the presence of allergic asthma. If the symptoms are not treated with various measures, inhaled pollen can impact the lungs, which can lead to bronchitis or asthma. Few people realize that the heart can also be affected. Chronic inflammation and lung disease can place stress on the heart, making the heart work harder. This excess burden can lead to heart failure. However, there are measures that allergy sufferers can take to alleviate the symptoms and to reduce the stress on the heart. Read our tips to help get through daily life during allergy season more comfortably.

13 Tips for Avoiding Pollen

What you can do to battle symptoms:*

  • A daily nasal cleansing with salt water rinses out the pollen and disinfects the nasal mucosa, thereby strengthening it.
  • Butterbur tablets dilate the bronchi and alleviate inflammatory asthmatic reactions.
  • Dried-out mucosa provides a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses, and can be rubbed with Dexpanthenol 3x daily.
  • Vapors with dill or fennel oil help treat congested bronchi.
  • Cool face masks or peppermint oil alleviate tension headaches.
  • Yoga and relaxation exercises help fight stress, which can make hay fever and its symptoms worse due to histamine release.
  • Euphrasia diluted with water used as an eye cover reduces itching
