Allergy Tips for the ATX

  • Take Your Vitamins

Immune boosters are important. Vitamin D3, Multivitamins, Probiotics, Good Oils/Fats. Not sure what all you should even be taking? or how much? We sometimes hear in the office from patients "I eat really well, I don't think I need extra vitamins". It is very important to eat well, especially if you are suffering from allergies. With the food source as it is on the planet and average American diet is deficient. Most "clean" diets are still lacking in essential nutrients, especially those that get used up with stress. The nutrients needed for the body to maintain musculo-skeletal integrity and stamina is essential. Talk to Dr. Fuquay if you have questions about your particular nutritional needs.

Cedar and Dairy are like BFF's (best friends forever) in the body. They play off each other- one way in ensure allergy symptoms while the cedar is high is to couple it with dairy products. Just so we are clear- that is all dairy products (milk, ice cream, ranch dressing, pizza, creamy fill-in-the-blank sauce, half-n-half creamer in the coffee). Please note- the elimination is while the cedar is high rather than a new lifestyle. Every little thing you can do while the cedar is high to support your body counts.

  • Avoid Dairy Products
  • Drink Water

We all need 8 glasses or water everyday right? We have all heard this fact, right? Are you getting that much every day? We need 8 glasses (approximately 2 liters) everyday for normal cellular function. What that really means is that your cells (all gazillion of them) are made up of over 88% water and your body needs water everyday to just work properly. If you are flushing or moving toxins then generally you add another 1/2 - 1 liter. FAQ- Does my tea count as water? Say it doesn't count as water if it has sugar or caffeine.

  • Go To Bed

How much sleep is enough? That may be for you to determine, for some it's 7 for others it's 8 hours. The  endocrine system regulates the sleep cycle. The endocrine system is Adrenals, Thyroid, Gonads, and Pituitary. We get that fight or flight response from the adrenals- and if they are depleted- allergies symptoms will shoot through the roof. What time you going to bed every night? What time do you get up? are you rested? Not sleeping well?  Make an appointment, supporting the musculo-skeletal system with proper alignment will support the nerve supply to vital endocrine organs. Our bodies also go into a healing cycle with our sleep so REM sleep in very important for healing.

Did you know that 50% of your immune system is in your gut? Did you know that sugar reduces the functioning of your immune system by 50% for up to 3 hours? Guess how much sugar it takes to cause this disruption....only one tablespoon. Worth noting- fake sugars like those found in diet sodas actually cause the same depletion in the body and the added assault of being a neurologically. That means it jacks your nervous system up- for about 3 hours.
