Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:
We are at the very height of allergy season. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has named the month of May National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. With the drought-busting rainy season we experienced and windy days we’ve had lately, it’s no wonder that people are coughing, sneezing, and suffering from one of the most intense allergy seasons we’ve seen in California in years. As a Burbank nutritionist, I deal with these problems all day long.
It seems that everywhere I turn, I’m hearing from patients and friends who have never had a problem with seasonal allergies, asking me, “What can I do?” From a constant cough and pesky post-nasal drip, to sticky eyes and sneezing, these symptoms just don’t seem to let up.
So what can you do about your allergies?
Over-the-counter and prescription medications only mask the symptoms and don’t get to the root of the real problem. And some have potential side effects that are far worse than the allergies they supposedly alleviate.
As a Burbank nutritionist, I recommend a line of natural supplements, available only through doctors, called Standard Process. They offer a number of whole food-based products which are extremely effective for the relief of seasonal allergies.
These products, all available at our office, include:
Allerplex: Supports the body’s response to seasonal, environmental and dietary stressors. Supports healthy liver function, manage mucous movement and healthy lung and respiratory function.
Antronex: Supports detoxification via the liver and allows the liver to produce more natural antihistamines.
Cal-Amo: Maintains proper ph balance.
Drenamin: Helps the body fight everyday stressors that can overload the immune system and improves energy, mood, sleep, and well-being.
Emphaplex: Combines vitamins, minerals, and glandular nutrients to support respiratory system health. It assists the body’s natural ability to expel respiratory secretions.
Fen-Gre: Fenugreek is the main ingredient and it is used to maintain the body’s natural respiratory function. It also maintains healthy mucous and phlegm in the lungs and bronchial tubes.
Pneumotrophin PMG: Supports healthy lung function.
Which of these is best for you? The next time you are in the office, tell me about your allergy issues and I’ll get you on the natural road to feeling and breathing so much better!
