ALLERGENS

Love the great outdoors but dread pollen? You’re not alone: more than 50 million Americans suffer from pollen issues each year. Some people also have year-round sensitivities to triggers like dust and pets (sorry, Spot!). Over-the-counter meds offer temporary relief, but they often cause unpleasant side effects.

The Pollen Problem: An Annual Calendar*

(*Varies slightly from region to region.)

Mar

Tree pollen season starts!

Get your tissues ready and watch pollen levels online for the best days for outdoor activities.

Apr

April showers bring… flower pollen.

At dusk and dawn, pollen counts are highest—so try to plan your activities accordingly.

May

Tree pollen starts wrapping up (hooray!), but grass pollen begins.

Pollen counts tend to be higher on windy days and lower in rainy weather.

Jun

As days get warmer, grass pollen continues.

It’s natural to have good days and bad days, depending on the time of day, rainfall, and other factors.

Jul

Good news! Spring pollen is subsiding.

Unfortunately—if you’re allergic to mold and spores, they can cause issues at this time.

Aug

The heat and humidity can cause mold spores— which tend to accumulate on fallen leaves—to multiply!

Now’s a great time to invest in an air purifier, if you haven’t yet.

Sep

Now’s the time when ragweed and goldenrod can really cause challenges for some.

Keep the air purifier going, and hang in till the first frost.

The Ayurvedic Approach

Short-Term:

Ease discomfort with synergistic herbal supplements.

Long term:

Address the root cause. Strengthen your immune system so you’re naturally more resilient to airborne allergens.

"The Ayurvedic approach to airborne and digestive irritants is gentle but effective. It’s more holistic, going beyond suppressing the problem and instead nourishes the entire body, mind, and spirit."

How can we help you with your allergies?

Are You Sensitive to Airborne Irritants or Food Sensitivities? Let’s start with some short-term strategies.

What’s been bothering you the past few weeks?

I have sensitivities to pollen

"This herbal combination helps address not only the area where one might have discomfort (the sinuses), but also the root cause—low digestive fire.

Along with the herbal supplements, Clear Breathe Oil is wonderful for opening the airways through use with steam inhalation. The tea is helpful in supporting the respiratory system, and the spice blend helps maintain digestive strength. I have seen family members who suffer from pollen sensitivity find relief and breathe freely with this combination."

Now, let’s talk long-term strategies.

According to Ayurveda, sensitivities to airborne irritants are connected to your immune system and digestive system. Supporting these functions naturally can make a big difference year round.

Great! I’d like to strengthen my immunity and digestion year-round.

"Just one small teaspoon of Amrit Kalash Paste taken with the Amrit Ambrosia tablets is enough for a daily immunity boost to both the mind and body. Amrit has an immense number of antioxidants and is a powerful way to keep the immune system strong. I love the taste and my kids have been enjoying it as well."

The Source of Pollen Sensitivity

Have you ever wondered why some people tend to be more sensitive than others to pollen from trees and flowers? Here’s the Ayurvedic take:

Springtime is Kapha season—a time governed by Kapha dosha, the mind-body element associated with earth and water. Kapha’s wet, heavy qualities

As the winter snow melts into spring puddles and muddles, the impurities stored in your body over winter begin to liquify. If the load is too heavy, these liquified impurities can clog your body’s srotas, or channels.

When the channels are blocked, nutrients aren’t properly delivered to your cells, and your immune system can become too overwhelmed to resist airborne irritants.

That’s why, when spring flowers burst into bloom and fill the air with pollen, your body’s defenses are being challenged!

Whether you suffer from seasonal pollen issues or year-round sensitivities to things like dust and pet dander, shoring up your immune system in the long-term can make a big difference.
