Springtime is when long sunny days, vibrant wildflowers, and chirping birds start to reappear. Unfortunately, this bright and cheerful season also stirs up pollen resulting in asthma and allergy symptoms such as wheezing, sniffles, and sneezing.
This means for a lot of children taking heaps of medication, staying inside on beautiful days, and missing out on tons of fun.
The roots of allergies are actually imbalances in the systems of the body including the digestive, immune, and respiratory functions even if the allergies are triggered by the environment.
Steroids, decongestants and antihistamines can stop the watery eyes and runny nose, but they merely provide temporary relief, are potentially unsafe, and harsh.
Fortunately, several natural remedies for asthma and allergies are available that not only bring relief to symptoms, but can also resolve the underlying imbalances of your child that can stop future attacks from happening.
Natural Remedies for Asthma and Allergies

Since children have a natural aversion to needles, the acupoints can be effectively with harmless tuning forks or enchanting laser lights.
The benefits that Chinese herbal therapy for asthma and allergy patients can include a clearing of phlegm, strengthening of the immune system, and widening of the lung’s airways. A customized herbal formula is usually created for your child’s specific symptoms. This kid-friendly formula may astragalus to beef up the immune system and other mild herbs to relieve the symptoms.
Processed foods, sugar, soy, wheat, and diary can potentially cause inflammation in the body, which makes your child susceptible to respiratory problems. Consult with your child’s healthcare provider for suggestions on how to eliminate harmful foods from your child’s diet.
Probiotics: Choose Jarrow or any children’s probiotic that are of high quality to enable good bacteria to thrive on the digestive tract.

This spring, it is much better to go for natural and safe remedies for asthma and allergies.
