Season Savvy

SEASON SAVVY
CLIMATE CHANGE IS GRADUALLY WARMING AND DAMPENING
OUR ENVIRONMENT, ENCOURAGING A LONGER AND MORE
DIVERSE FLOWERING POLLEN-RICH SEASON.
As the climate on the earth begins to change, CO2 levels rise, and this is a major growth factor
for plants, trees and flora. These changes will undoubtedly alter flowering seasons, prolonging pollen-producing periods, and potentially increasing the total pollen burden released into the environment.
As winters become milder and wetter, we can also expect the growth of non-indigenous species of plants, trees, and grasses, which will have their own flowering season, potentially further adding to our allergy burden by lengthening the season (normally February to September). Many of us are already experiencing this as our hayfever kicks in earlier and lasts later.

The number of people living with allergies is on the rise, and it is now estimated 40-50 % of children in the UK will receive an allergy diagnosis with food allergies, hay fever, asthma or eczema according to The British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI)

Hayfever symptoms are caused by the body reacting to pollen as if it were a dangerous enemy. You’re flooded with inflammatory histamine, and everything swells and itches.
HIGH HISTAMINE SYMPTOMS
Itchy or red skin
Hives
Red or itchy eyes
Runny or blocked nose
Swelling/ puffy eyes or nose
Headaches
Asthma attacks
Whilst tackling climate change is a primary concern, the immediate effects on your body need to be tackled too.

Take heart from the healthy Finns, who are bucking the trend. Incidence of allergies has plateaued and declined for them over a ten-year period. This is largely due to a nationwide public health programme where key lifestyle changes were made which encouraged: breastfeeding; spending time outside in the local natural environment; exercising; improving gut health; eating a Mediterranean or Baltic healthy diet; sparing use of antibiotics; and smoking cessation.

In a Portuguese study, an increased exposure to the natural environment for babies was associated with a lower incidence of allergy development. Simply by placing oneself in a local environment rich in flora, trees, weeds, grasses and fauna, the risk of developing an allergy is lowered. In this study, the diversity of the plant life was key.2

A great way to start supporting your body to deal better with pathogens of all sorts, is by focusing on your digestion.
WHAT SIGNIFICANCE DOES YOUR DIGESTION HAVE
WHEN IT COMES TO ALLERGIES?
Here at A.Vogel, we are big believers in holistic health. This means treating your system as a whole and nurturing yourself by a number of means, whilst also always trying to determine the ROOT CAUSE of any health complaint.
COULD YOUR DIGESTION BE A MAJOR UNDERLYING CONTRIBUTING FACTOR?
Interestingly, up to 80% of your immune system lies in your gut. The less happy your gut is, the more likely your immune system is to be off-kilter, reacting hysterically to pollen or similar innocent bystanders, and leaving you with weepy eyes, itchy skin, inflamed, scratchy throat or irritated nostrils.

The logic here is by keeping your gut happier and in better balance, your immune response won’t be so likely to be unnecessarily out of control. A simple step approach is as follows:
1. DIVERSIFY
Research has shown that the variety contained in your diet will nicely mirror the diversity of good bacteria in your gut; and not only that, those people with a reduced diversity of gut bacteria are significantly more likely to suffer at the hands of conditions such as allergic rhinitis.3
You can go a step up from eating well by adding a prebiotic tonic into your diet. Try Molkosan Fruit, which is rich in the L+ lactic acid which your good gut bacteria love. They literally produce it themselves when they are happy, so give them a headstart and set the perfect environment for these friendly bacteria to flourish!
2. IMPROVE THE ENVIRONMENT WITH A PREBIOTIC
3. TOP UP YOUR LEVELS WITH AN
IMMUNE-SUPPORTING PROBIOTIC
Whilst a focus on diet should be the initial step, research is also highlighting that treating the gut environment with probiotic supplements could be a helpful therapeutic approach for managing allergic conditions.

Of course, we understand that the results will be even more pronounced if we help to set a better gut environment for these probiotics to survive – and we can achieve this with diet and with the help of prebiotics as mentioned above.
Optibac have an option in their range specifically for immune support.
