Allergy Relief in Sonoma County
Spring is here! With the heavy rains experienced this winter, the clinic is seeing an increase in the pollen levels. We’re also seeing a change in the types of allergens currently in the air. Plants that pollinated in fall during the drought are pollenating earlier this year. This includes weeds and grasses.
Testing for pollens
Due to the increase in pollen counts, this is a good time for the clinic to check patients for allergies. We typically check for allergies to tree, wildflower, and shrub pollens between January and March. This year there may be new pollens in the air which may be affecting you. You may also be reacting to plants that are pollinating early, such as weeds. In other cases, we might have tested for one type of allergen (such as grasses) but not to other allergens (such as trees or weeds).
Prior to testing, collect a pollen sample in your immediate area. This is a good method to use to check the allergens to which you may be experiencing a reaction. We highly recommend collecting a pollen sample if you have been treated for pollen reactions in the past and are suffering this year. Put a bowl of water out for at least 4 days and bring into the office in a glass jar with a lid.
Testing for imbalances in the organs
The clinic also assesses organ imbalances. We usually check sinus, liver, and spleen imbalances for patients suffering from pollen reactions. Whole food supplement formulas are then recommended for patients to help balance the sinus and organ functions to help with allergy relief.
Some patients may need to come in for a checkup every couple of years to test for new allergens that were not previously addressed. Typically, they visit once or twice and feel much better after the office visits.
