Although it's still cold outside in many part of the world—and an article about allergies might seem premature—it's never too early to prepare your body for all of the sneezing, sniffling, and itching we tend to experience each Spring. And when it comes to allergies, allergy-related symptoms, and diseases with an allergic component (like asthma), it's in our nature to seek simple answers. But oftentimes our quick remedies and pills leave us unsatisfied, and that's because allergies are not simple. They are a complex, knotty interaction between our genes, our environment, and most importantly—the bacteria in our gut.
This leads many of us to constantly seek more natural treatments for our allergy symptoms like honey, vitamins A and C, or even the neti pot. However, it's important to understand seasonal allergies are a symptom of another, bigger problem. What we really need address is why our body is grappling with certain stimuli in the air, in our food, and on our skin.
