Seasonal Allergies & Your Immune System

Seasonal Allergies & Your Immune System

These allergies happen when the immune system finds a “harmless substance”, such as dust or pollen in our environment, and considers it a germ or “invader”. It will try to protect your body and produce a substance called histamine in response.  


When you are feeling ill due to allergies, try your best to give your body healthy nutrients to keep your immune system strong.  

  • Have smaller, more frequent snacks and meals to help make sure your body still gets the nutrients it needs.  
  • Get some rest, aim for at least 7 hours of sleep per night to help recover.  
  • Practice good hydration by keeping fluids close by, setting reminders on your phone to hydrate, or by using soda water to keep things sparkling! 
  • Eat fruits and veggies high in vitamin C such as citrus, berries, or peppers to help reduce the discomfort behind seasonal allergies. (Seo et al, 2013).
