Do you suffer from itchy or watery eyes, sneezing, a runny nose, dark circles under your eyes, or an itchy throat, nose, or ears? If so, you may be battling allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is a common inflammatory condition of the nasal tissue triggered by one or more variables in our environment (trees,
grasses, molds, dust, etc.), foods, or genetic factors.
Treatments vary depending on each patient’s symptoms, age, and specific allergies. Treatment options include oral and nasally administered medications and/or supplements, allergen avoidance, and immunotherapy (allergy injections).
Probiotics have been shown in multiple studies to decrease the development of allergic reactions and prevent atopic diseases (i.e. asthma, allergic rhinitis, eczema, etc.). Probiotics can be used in conjunction with standard pharmaceutical treatments including inhaled steroids, anti-histamines, and immunotherapy, or offer a very safe and natural alternative when used alone.
