Managing Hayfever

Managing Hayfever
The Digestive Approach

Managing hayfever can be daunting – perhaps you’ve already tried some of the usual medicines and remedies and are now wondering where to turn? As always, we like to delve a little deeper and consider what other factors could be at the root of the issue…

Did you know that an under-par digestive system could potentially be playing a part?

WHY DO SO MANY CONDITIONS LINK BACK TO DIGESTION?

As the famous physician Hippocrates once stated, ‘all disease starts in the gut’; and this idea is certainly thought to be relevant when it comes to allergic responses too.

You see, with an unhappy digestive system, low level inflammation (known technically as ‘subclinical’) can gradually build up. This can, in turn, drive the development of leaky gut, as inflammation causes damage to the gut wall. Unnecessary ‘leakiness’ can then put the immune system on high alert due to an influx of food particles arriving in the bloodstream before they are properly broken down. Over time, this may cause the immune system to react to harmless food constituents, meaning that issues such as food sensitivities or allergies are much more likely to rear their ugly heads.

Therefore, supporting each stage of your digestion by working through some of our tips below could be an integral part in helping to keep the symptoms of hay fever at bay.
