What are Environmental Allergies?
Environmental allergies are allergies that stimulate your body’s immune system to react to select seasonal and/or environmental allergies. With over 50 million Americans having allergies, it is extremely important to identify these allergies because with each exposure to an allergen, your body can increase its reaction level.
How Can Environmental Allergies Cause Pain?
Very similar to food allergies, environmental allergies stimulates your body’s immune system to overreact to foreign substances. Whether it’s seasonal allergies, mold allergies or even pet allergies, your body begins an allergic cascade of events that causes inflammation and pain. The classic symptoms of environmental allergies are the usual stuffy nose, sneezing and sore throat but these allergies can also cause headaches, joint pain, fatigue and fibromyalgia.

Treatment of Environmental Allergies
Medi360 Center’s medical team uses 3 integrative approaches for the treatment of seasonal allergies
Acute Treatment: If the patient is experiencing severe reactions to seasonal allergies, the medical provider may prescribe an anti-histamine medication to help with immediate symptoms of allergies
Sublingual Immunotherapy: Once the medical team identifies the various environmental allergies, they can prescribe a series of sublingual immunotherapy allergy drops to help the patient build their tolerance to the allergies. This once a day sublingual drop will be customized to each patient pending their allergies. Used throughout the word by many practitioners, this innovative way of treating allergies is simple, convenient, needle-free and cost effective.
Targeted Nutritional Therapy: Some patients can benefit with targeted nutritional therapy to help reduce the symptoms of allergies during peak season. Your medical provider many prescribe a combination of targeted nutrients which offsets many of the most common symptoms of allergies, leading to a better quality of life.
