What are Seasonal Allergies?

Seasonal allergies are immune system reactions to airborne substances like pollen, mold spores, or pet dander that are prevalent during certain times of the year. When someone with allergies inhales these allergens, their immune system perceives them as harmful invaders and releases chemicals to defend the body. 

This can cause symptoms such as sneezing, congestion, itchy eyes, and a runny nose. Seasonal allergies are typically linked to specific seasons when certain plants are in bloom or release their pollen, leading to more intense allergic reactions during those times.

How Can I Treat Allergies Holistically?

Elderberry Syrup

Consuming local honey is based on the idea of immunotherapy, where regular exposure to small amounts of allergens can desensitize our immunity. Local honey contains trace amounts of pollen from local plants, and by ingesting it regularly, some people believe it can help the body adapt to these allergens. 

Experience the natural power of Sanctuary Holistic Kitchen’s Elderberry Syrup. It’s made from handpicked elderberries and enriched with local Texas Honey. You’ll also find Vitamin C and antioxidants, helping to better support your immune system and may provide relief from allergy symptoms.
