Many people suppress their seasonal allergy symptoms with a cocktail of medications ranging from antihistamines to oral corticosteroids. In a perfect world, these medications would target only the allergy problem, but medical technology isn’t yet that specific. As a result, these medications can affect multiple systems of the body with unwanted side effects. These include:
- Dry mouth
- Heart palpitations
- Fast heartbeat (pseudoephedrine)
- Difficulty breathing
- Rebound congestion
*The FDA does not recommend antihistamines or decongestants for young children.
- Increase in appetite
- Weight gain
- Fluid retention
- Irritability or anxiousness
- Increased vulnerability to infection
- Skin thinning
- Muscle weakness
Many people wanting to avoid taking these medications with each passing allergy season look toward naturopathic allergy treatment. At AllergyEasy, we offer a natural approach to allergy care using sublingual immunotherapy, which is similar to allergy shots but is dosed as sublingual (under-the-tongue) allergy drops.
The drops are simple in their composition, containing all-natural antigens suspended in a saline solution. When taken daily, the drops can help desensitize your body to the very things that once made it miserable, including pollens, dust, pet dander, and mold. We also offer a natural food allergy treatment that can help desensitize people to allergy-causing food proteins so that they can eat more of the foods they love without fear of reactions.
