However, as air spreads pollen similarly fast spreading myths that accompany spring allergies. Meet the most common mistakes that we set the record straight.

Myth no. 1: sufficient to treat allergy antihistamine

Many allergy sufferers rely on the use of medications, especially non-sedating antihistamines, which can normally be purchased in pharmacies without a prescription.

Myth no. 2: Allergies can be freed from the consumption of honey from local production

Many people mistakenly believe that if they eat each day honey made from local flowers, the body becomes immune against pollen. Although it seems logical experts refute this myth. Claiming that flower pollen triggers allergies, belongs among the greatest mistakes. Allergic reactions produces only pollen from trees, grasses and herbs, because it is lighter and spreads through the air. Consuming honey is therefore tolerant pollen does not happen, because it comes from the flowers whose pollen allergy is not the body. While we support health, but from spring allergies, unfortunately, less relieved.

Myth. 3: allergy symptoms are reduced as stay at home

This belief may prove only to people who suffer from very mild spring allergies. For most allergy sufferers, however, this method is ineffective. Indeed allergens remain only outdoors, but easy to get into the interior. Enough to open a window, door or air conditioning. Pollen is also easily deposited on clothing, shoes or hair. Therefore, it is more than likely that allergens walks bring home with them. Although completely get rid of them at home, they can minimize their effects, for example, frequent washing of clothes and bedding in hot water, removing carpets, which are deposited, the windows closed or use a humidifier.

Again, it is a mistake. A study from 2013 conducted by the Australian QIMR-Berghofer Medical Research Institute revealed 10 genetic markers associated with allergies. It turned out that these factors play a role in at least 25% of all diagnosed allergies. If you get seasonal allergies appeared in childhood, does not mean, moreover, that it can not get in adulthood. The body had come into contact with new things throughout life and can be started against them intolerant almost anytime. This also applies vice versa - allergies can occur during the life spontaneously subside. It primarily affects the immune system, whose strength changes over the years. Therefore, it is recommended to regularly support and cleanse the pollutants. "To strengthen the body's resistance is used red lapacho, nasturtium, echinacea and black currant. The immune system of the organism and the total energy also encourages eleutherocok "recommends Jarmila Podhorná herbalist.

Myth no. 5: Allergies worsen depending on the environment in which you are currently moving

It is true that in some regions and areas dominated by certain types of allergens. A study from 2014 published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology also found that the environment in which you live, it significantly contributes to the likelihood that you will suffer from allergies or not. The US National Institute of Health also revealed that it does not matter whether people are allergic, but what these allergy triggers. In practice this means that a stay in a different environment can alleviate allergic symptoms only, not removed. Pollen can indeed spread to large distances.
