Peak allergy season is upon us as we head into spring, summer, and fall. Runny noses, itchy eyes, pressure in the sinuses, and a tickle in the throat, are all recognizable signs of an allergic response.
Allergies stem from the body’s response to dander, pollen, molds, environmental toxins, and more. Unfortunately, food, environmental, and seasonal allergies are on the rise.
Allergies Are Becoming More Common
Most of us know someone who struggles with allergies to food, animals, or something in the environment, and research has shown that allergies have been increasing for years.
How Prevalent Are Allergies?
- The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology states that allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the United States.
- About a third of adults have a seasonal allergy, eczema, or food allergy, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
- The CDC also found that food allergies in children increased by 50 percent in a study done between 1997 and 2011.
Why Are Allergies Increasing?
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, one theory about why allergies and asthma are on the rise is the "hygiene hypothesis."
This theory centers around cleanliness and kids not being exposed to as many germs as in decades past. While this sounds like a good thing, it does impact their immune system.
Environmental issues such as pollution and global warming also play a role. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “warmer temperatures and increased carbon dioxide concentrations also enable ragweed and other plants to produce more allergenic pollen, in larger quantities. This means that many locations could experience longer allergy seasons and higher pollen counts as a result of climate change.”
So, it seems our environment is bombarding the body with antagonists earlier and longer each year — and our immune system isn’t equipped to fight it.
How to Naturally Prevent Allergies
Our naturally robust immune system isn't functioning as it was designed to, as the founder of Somaya Life, Richard Breunig, has spent years researching. Our weakened immune systems and allergic reactions correlate directly to poor gut health.
Therefore, if we improve our gut health, we’ll likely see an improvement in our immune system response as well. Research dating back to ancient Greece has shown that the gut is the epicenter of the body and correlates directly with our immune systems.
This is where Somaya Life comes in!
Probiotics for Allergies, but Better
The impact of probiotics in stimulating the immune system and reducing allergy symptoms has been well-researched over the years. Now, we’re going a step further.
The unique formula of Somaya Life offers gut enhancements that elevate the digestive microbiome, gut acid management, pathogen inhibitors, and immune communication. All in all, it naturally balances your gut, aligns the body, and brings your robust immune system to life.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what Morgan Burns of Wisconsin had to say:
“I usually have pretty horrible allergies that knock me down hard unless I take Zyrtec several times a day. I haven’t taken any Zyrtec the entire season and I barely notice my allergies. On days when the pollen is worse, I just double up on Somaya Life and it works like a charm!”
