Oh No, Tis The Season Again!
Ok everyone, take a breath; I wasn’t talking about Christmas! I was talking about the other less enthusiastically anticipated season for many of us, Allergy Season. For many of us the longer days full of sunshine and warm breezes can’t come soon enough! While I think most, everyone looks forward to spring it also brings much trepidation to many who suffer from seasonal Allergies. We crave spring but dread the itchy eyes, runny noses, sneezes and worse that accompany the season.
Many people can have allergies to things other than pollen which cause these same symptoms along with a few others that may not be as well recognized as being allergy associated. Here are a few: Red skin, scaly patches, darkened leathery cracked skin, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, hives, itching, eczema, sun sensitivity, fatigue, poor memory and poor concentration. All of these can be signs of an allergy to inhalants, foods, or chemical intolerance.
At Harper Chiropractic Joshua Morris MD is in charge of our LDA (low dose antigen) Program. The program differs in several ways from traditional Allergy Treatments, the biggest difference is that with the LDA Program we are actually training your own body to eventually produce its own antibodies to the things you are allergic to. Two other major differences are that 1 extensive, often painful allergy testing is NOT required. The other is that weekly visits for allergy injections are NOT required either. People with food allergies are required to undergo a limited dietary intake for several days.
You can get more information about this and the LDA program in general at www.wycoffwellness.com . The American Academy of Environmental Medicine or simply google LDA.
