Fall Allergies How to Thrive

Fall Season is Allergy Season: The Stats + How to Thrive 

When you think of Fall you most likely think of day-trips to the cider mill, pumpkin spiced lattes and football games, but for allergy sufferers, who are an estimated 50 million Americans, Fall is a time of unbearable allergic reactions. Sensitivity to ragweed and mold are at their highest in the Fall.

Fall is a season to take extra precautions to keep symptoms and reactions under control and maintain your quality of life. Here are a few statistics to keep you informed and prepared for the ‘not-so-lovely’ side of the fall season. 

According to The National Institute Of Health, more than half of all Americans have one or more allergies.

Bustling winds can transport Ragweed pollen hundreds of miles. These pollens can wreck your immune system even when you don’t necessarily live in an area with the potential for ragweed.

Don’t rake your leaves!  Turning up leaves can trigger outbreaks.

Ragweed pollen is most harmful during AM hours, pollen counts are at their highest.

One in five people have dust mite allergies, according to Healthy House. Did you know around 10,000 of dust mites are living in the average bed?

The good news? You can do little things that will drastically improve reactions to allergies as well as prevent them from settling into your home. It’s wise to be proactive and take steps to manage allergies.  As symptoms continue allergies can settle into the body and medicine only provides a temporary solution.
