The Functional Wellness Approach to Allergies
It’s allergy season, and this year, it hit hard. That means runny noses, itchy eyes, and irritated mucous membranes.
But what really causes allergies? And is there a drug-free way to handle them?
The short answer is yes! Keep reading to learn more about alternatives to OTC medication for seasonal allergies.
What causes allergies?
Allergies are the body’s natural response to something it perceives as a threat or a danger. This danger comes in the form of a protein. Common allergens include foods (like nuts and shellfish), mold, and pollen.
What happens during an allergic reaction?
When trees and flowers bloom in spring, they release pollen into the air, often triggering a mild (or even a severe) allergic response. In these cases, our bodies produce histamine, a chemical that in turn triggers inflammation.
Inflamed mucous membranes in our eyes, nose, throat, and lungs become irritated, causing discomfort and increasing mucus production.
How can I deal with an allergic reaction?
As symptoms arise, it’s difficult not to reach for an over-the-counter solution. Anti-histamines prevent the body from producing histamine, but they also have side effects.
The functional wellness approach to allergy relief involves supporting the systems in the body that detoxify and expel intruders, namely our liver.

How can I prevent allergies without drugs?
To prevent allergies, diet is key. We suggest moving toward a more alkaline diet, one that lowers the body’s Ph, making it less acidic.
