“Pollenpocalypse”

Testing for Five Health Issues that Contribute to Allergies

Many have predicted a bad pollen season this year. Some are calling it “Pollenocalypse”!

Here are five things the clinic can test to help with allergy relief for this season’s symptoms:

  1. Increased Toxins: Both in the foods and the environment.  Sonoma county residences inhaled several chemicals from both fires in the last year. Some of these chemicals cause an autoimmune reaction in the lungs and nervous system and also increase allergy and sensitivity symptoms.
  2. Infections: Viruses and bacteria have acquired new defense mechanisms that they did not have many years ago. This is why hospitals are telling patients that certain bacteria cannot be treated or are resistant to antibiotics. We can do testing to see what natural supplements are needed to address these more complex situations.
  3. Low Immune System: This is occurring more and more in our present environment. I personally know of two people in my life that died in the last 3 months from an infection. There are several reasons for this. In the last several months, our office has increased patient testing for a lowered immune system.
  4. Increase in Pollens this Year: Because of the rains, the weeds that normally pollenate from July thru October are pollening now.   When it rains, the molds and mold toxins are activated and kicked up into the air. The wild flowers are also very prolific this year.  This means we have both more pollens and more mold pollens in the air. The variety and amount of pollens are increased at this time. In the month of April, there are pollens for trees, weeds, grasses, shrubs, and wild flowers, as well as mold and mold toxins each time it rains.  We offer an acupressure treatment that helps with allergy relief!
  5. Food Sensitivities: These can become more symptomatic during the pollen season and can contribute to an increase of pollen allergy symptoms.
