I remember growing up watching my mom suffer from seasonal allergies every year. I felt fortunate that I didn’t have any allergies, especially because even as a young child I hated the idea of taking pills. That all changed when I moved a couple of years ago. Something in the air now gets me every Spring, and I’ve learned firsthand how downright miserable seasonal allergies can be.When an allergen trigger like pollen lands on top of receptors in our nasal passage it alerts the body to release histamine. Histamines are naturally occurring. They initiate a series of reactions that are designed to help the body get rid of unwanted visitors.
