Combat Seasonal Allergies

A Natural Approach To Combat Seasonal Allergies

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 50 million Americans have experienced various types of allergies each year. Allergies are also the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. Aside from that, allergies are just downright not fun to deal with. Allergies can make it hard to function and breathe normally making some people desperate enough to reach for that drowsy allergy medicine. But put down the Benadryl and continue reading as we’ve curated this list to give you more natural, effective ways at combatting those seasonal allergies so you can feel your best without falling asleep at your desk.

We put this together with most of what we offer in mind, however, in the end, we listed a handful of things you can start doing at home to get some relief.

Combat Seasonal Allergies


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

The physiological effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy make it a great option when trying to manage allergy symptoms. Hyperbaric oxygen reduces swelling and inflammation, and it can relieve the modest levels of hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the body’s tissues) that can occur due to allergy-related sinus pressure. Preliminary studies have also shown that levels of IgE, the antibody that mediates the immune response, are decreased by HBOT, which may potentially reduce the magnitude of the allergic response.



Combat Seasonal Allergies


Nasal Ozone Insufflation

Nasal Insufflation is a safe and effective way to benefit from the inhalation of medical-grade ozone. Although inhaling straight ozone gas can be harmful to the lungs, Nasal Insufflation provides a safe approach. During your treatment, we filter medical-grade, bubbling ozone gas through olive oil. Through this process, patients can safely inhale the ozone vapors using a nasal cannula.

Ozone is an activated form of oxygen, which can act as an anti-inflammatory thus decreasing sinus pressure and reducing inflammation throughout the nasal passageways providing relief from allergies, and infections. Ozone is also a powerful anti-viral and anti-microbial that can kill off any microbes that could cause nasal irritation.

Nasal Insufflation, like other forms of ozone therapy, has a cumulative effect. It can be used to provide relief from both acute and chronic conditions. This treatment is often performed several days in a row or multiple times each week until the desired outcome is achieved. This treatment can be done as a standalone or in conjunction with any other therapy.


If you are looking for a more natural, less drowsy alternative to Benadryl, then come see us for our favorite allergy support D-Hist or kids D-Hist Jr. These supplements provide optimal support for nasal and sinus passageways for individuals who deal with allergies and seasonal changes.

  • Supports Immune Balance in Hypersensitive Individuals
  • Supports Sinus and Respiratory Health
  • Promotes Normal Viscosity of Mucus
  • Clears Nasal Passages



Quercetin: has strong antioxidant activity and has been shown to support immune health by mediating the release of inflammatory compounds including leukotrienes and prostaglandins. Quercetin is known for its ability to stabilize mast cells, diminishing the release of histamine, the compound known to cause hypersensitivity reactions during seasonal changes.

Stinging Nettles Leaf Extract: a plant that has been shown to balance immune response, specifically in the airways and nasal passages. Studies have shown that the extract of stinging nettles leaf balances a variety of inflammatory activities that affect respiratory health.

Bromelain: a plant enzyme naturally found on the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant. Bromelain is a proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme that aids in the breakdown of large protein complexes, including antigenic compounds, and has been shown to enhance the absorption of quercetin. Bromelain has been shown to reduce circulating allergenic protein complexes associated with hyper-immune sensitivity and seasonal discomfort.

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC): is an amino acid precursor to one of the most important antioxidants in the body, glutathione. Both glutathione and NAC help reduce the viscosity of the mucus allowing for clearing of the airways and improving respiratory health.

Vitamin C: cannot be synthesized by humans and is therefore an essential nutrient that must be consumed in the diet. Among its numerous health-promoting properties, vitamin C is an essential vitamin that supports the immune system and is also a potent antioxidant. When the body is under a significant amount of stress, vitamin C is excreted rapidly. Vitamin C has many immune-boosting properties but is distinctively beneficial for individuals with seasonal discomfort because of its ability to deactivate histamine.

Things You Can Do At Home

1. Peptide Protocols

Our Remedy Peptide Protocol is beneficial for combatting and recovering from chronic symptoms of common respiratory infections and allergic reactions. But, it’s also beneficial for healing acute injuries, chronic fatigue, and other chronic infections. *Comes with a 30-day supply of pre-loaded syringes to administer yourself at home.*


Thymosin Alpha 1 can both enhance and balance immune function at the same time. Often, chronic infection symptoms come from a weak Th1 immune system and the inability of the body to rebalance the immune response after infection. By strengthening Th1 responses and immune balance, TA1 supports recovery from these chronic symptoms of viral illnesses and allergic reactions.

BPC-157 and GHK-Cu are immune-balancing and tissue-healing peptides that work synergistically together to support healing and combat chronic allergy symptoms.

Some Benefits

  • Improves Th1 (antibacterial and antiviral) responses
  • Promotes a balanced immune response
  • Improves antigen presentation and antibody responses
  • May help normalize inflammatory responses, such as allergic reactions
  • Supports natural antimicrobial responses.

2. Eat an Anti-Inflammatory Diet

An anti-inflammatory diet can reduce your risk for allergies by giving your immune system the ability to repair itself, which allows your body the balance it needs to fight off common allergies the average person may suffer from. Here are some of the foods we recommend incorporating into your diet to help you beat allergies:

  • Lemons — Lemons are loaded with vitamin C and immune-boosting antioxidants. Drinking lemon water throughout the day detoxifies the body and rids it of impurities.
  • Garlic — Garlic is a natural antibiotic that helps ward off infections, viruses, and even allergies. You can eat or juice raw garlic, or even go for a garlic supplement if you don’t like the taste or smell. However, raw, untampered is always the most effective.
  • Green leafy vegetables — Leafy greens aid detoxification and help reduce inflammation They are also a great source of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes.
  • Probiotic-rich foods — Probiotic foods can help to repair a damaged intestinal lining, which in turn helps support immune health. Foods like kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, natto, yogurt, miso, and kombucha are great sources of probiotics. Or you can take a probiotic supplement.
  • Bone broth — Bone broth, made from beef and chicken stock, is rich in many minerals and amino acids that support the healing of the leaky gut, thereby helping to strengthen the immune system.

3. Local Raw Honey (Bee Pollen)

Taking a tablespoon of local, raw honey every day will help your body build a tolerance to the local pollen that can irritate your allergies. Because raw honey contains bee pollen which the bees collect from all of the flowers in the area where you live which is what helps you build up your tolerance. This can help prevent infections, fight off allergies, and boost immunity.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of ACV and some fresh lemon juice is another easy, yet effective way of fighting allergies. You can even try putting one teaspoon of ACV in your neti pot solution to help flush out your sinuses.
