Spring is here! And as much as we love to see the flowers and trees flourish, it also means it is allergy season, something millions of people dread every year! Today we will bring you the basics on allergies and how to lead a healthy lifestyle to prevent them.
What allergies are
Allergies are your immune system’s response to certain substances your body may see as harmful. These substances are called allergens and they could be anything: from certain food types to materials.
That response from your immune system can come in diverse shapes and forms: sneezing, eye irritation, runny nose, coughing, to nausea or even anaphylaxis (trouble breathing and loss of consciousness).
There are still some questions and unknowns when it comes to understanding what makes a food or substance an allergenic. Allergies are usually genetically inherited and this susceptibility to substances can be easily passed on for generations.
Among some of the most common allergens we can find:
– Foods like nuts, egg, wheat and fish.
– Insect stings
– Materials such as latex, nickel and synthetic mixes.
– Drugs like penicillin
– Plants and pollen
How can you prevent them?
Understanding your own body’s response to allergies is the first step to prevent allergies or at least, manage them. Staying away from the source of the allergy is sometimes possible, but some others isn’t, that’s why you need to make it manageable (the case of pollen, for instance).
Consulting your doctor regarding the most suitable treatment for your particular allergy is the first step. But at the same time, you can work on building up your defences and strengthening your immune system to fight diseases and any other allergies that may be triggered later in life.
Incorporating healthy habits such as clean eating, water consumption and supporting this with some natural supplements can help support your body’s response. Organo has effective and organic ganoderma-based supplements that can help you focus on prevention:

Did we mention they are easily incorporated into your diet? Just take a few capsules 2 times a day and follow the information on the package. This mixed with daily activity and exercise will guarantee your body will be ready to perform better in the face of potential allergies.
