Herbs, Spices and Foods For Springtime Allergies

New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted from Susan Yarett

Spring is around the corner and that means seasonal allergies are around the corner too!  Allergies arise from the body’s natural reaction to pollen released from particular trees.  The trees most commonly to blame for allergies are oak, olive, elm, birch, ash, hickory, poplar, and sycamore.

Allergies are triggered by the body’s own immune system, specifically by mast cells which become unstable and release histamine in response to continual bombardment by allergens in the environment.  These histamines are responsible for creating the inflammatory response.
