Allergies -- To Sneeze Or Not To Sneeze?

Grumpy, Sneezy, Dopey, Wheezy….No, this is not Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  ‘Tis the season for allergies.  But here’s something to think about…

If pollens CAUSE allergies, then everyone would have them as we are all EXPOSED to them!


Moving from the cold winter into the sunny spring and summer brings a sense of joy, but for many folks the changing of the seasons means more than just vacation plans and a new wardrobe – it signals the start of seasonal allergies.

Sneezing, wheezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery, red eyes – these are just some of the symptoms that more than 3 million Canadians face each year as the pollen from trees, grass, flowers, and plants makes its way into the air.


For many, relief of the secondary conditions is just a drugstore counter away – with a wide variety of traditional medications available to help.  However, for an increasing number of allergy sufferers the road to relief is best paved by Mother Nature, with a variety of all-natural treatments that studies show can help – often without many of the troubling side effects ascribed to traditional care.

In one study, published recently in the British Medical Journal, a group of Swiss researchers showed how just one tablet of butterbur four times daily was as effective as a popular antihistamine drug in controlling symptoms of hay fever – without the traditional symptom of drowsiness that sometimes occurs.  In a second study, presented at the 60th annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI), a group of British researchers put their stamp of approval on butterbur’s effectiveness in quelling symptoms of grass allergy.
