Combating Allergy Symptoms
Allergies are one of the top reasons for absences in the workplace.
Allergies interfere with life, with work, with play, even with romance.
When allergic allergies impact our sinus, it get real ugly. Symptoms include pressure in the face, particularly behind the eyes and nose; ear pain, eye pain, swollen areas on the face as well as feeling like you've just been ran other by a beer truck.
An individual may also experience hives, rash, itch and so forth to a specific allergen or allergens.
Before we get into our allergy prevention tips, if you are experiencing more allergy symptoms than in the past then check your daily diet.
Foods That Can Trigger Allergy Symptoms
Most Common Foods That Trigger Allergies
- eggs, milk, dairy products
- nuts, peanuts
- fish, shellfish
If a food contains sugar substitutes this may be the culprit behind your allergies. Sugar substitutes can damage the immune system, alter our DNA, and trigger hives, rash, itch, swelling generally in the face and become quite scary.
Personally speaking, I was a big fan of sugar substitutes for about 12 years and my allergies got worse and worse.
At one time hives reached a life-threatening stage. I couldn't even be around my pets.
After ditching sugar substitutes my allergy symptoms are about 1/10th as bad as they were. Even better, while my weight stayed within my healthy range I was developing a fatty bulge in my upper abdominal cavity. After ditching the sugar substitutes, the bulge started going away and I actually didn't gain any weight.
So if this sounds familiar, please speak with your doctor for professional advice regarding sugar substitutes and your immune system.

Outlined below are a few suggestions that will help keep your bedroom as dust-free as possible so you can spend more time being romantic rather than sneezing.
Pillows & Allergy Tip
Polyester is your best choice. If you prefer pillows filled with down or foam you may want to consider sealing them in plastic, zipper-styled cases.
Mattresses & Allergy Tip
Seal your mattress in a plastic, zipper-styled case as well. This will really cut down on the dust.
Blankets & Allergy Tip
Polyester blankets are a good choice because you can wash them and they don't tend to hold dust like the thick, wool blankets.

Clothing Closet & Allergy Tip
Clothing collects dust; therefore, closets should be kept closed at all times.
