Spring has sprung, and pollen counts are on the rise in the Eastern Iowa. Chances are you may already be suffering with allergy symptoms!
Many allergy symptoms are caused by the release of histamine, a chemical that triggers inflammation when your body is irritated by dust, pollen or other allergens. Histamine causes your blood vessels to dilate and become leaky, which leads to watery eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat and other annoying (even painful!) symptoms. Histamine also stimulates the secretion of mucus and constricts your airways, making it difficult to breath.
Most common over-the-counter allergy products block histamine to relieve allergy symptoms, but don’t help with the congestion that can come with a severe allergy attack. More drugs are often needed to manage congestion and breathing problems. These drugs are not preventative and can cause side effects that are just as frustrating as your symptoms: grogginess, tiredness and just not feeling like yourself.
Thankfully, there’s a natural product that can help manage and even prevent your symptoms without harsh drugs. Natural D-Hist blocks the release of histamine and other inflammatory substances and makes mucus thinner so it can be cleared more easily. It contains quercetin, bromelain, stinging nettles, N-acetyl-cysteine and vitamin C. Natural D-Hist is really 3 products in 1: an antihistamine, a decongestant and an anti-inflammatory. Many people who take it notice that their symptoms improve within 24 hours of taking their first dose.
“I was a total mess with my allergies in 2012, from March all the way through October,” said Mariah from Urbana, Iowa. “I started taking Natural D-Hist in March this year, and I have not had sinus pain, congestion or sneezing fits like I did last year!”
You have a choice between expensive over-the-counter treatments that mask your symptoms or a natural product that can help treat and prevent them. If you or someone you know suffers from seasonal allergies, try Natural D-Hist. It’s available at Advance Health and our retail pharmacies in 10 count boxes or 120 count bottles. Natural D-Hist for kids is also available at CarePro at the Pavilion!
