Top 3 Natural Treatments for Seasonal Allergies

May 23, 2012  |   0 Comments

Allergy season 2012 has arrived early, much to the chagrin of the 40 million people who end up sneezing, wiping their runny noses and grappling with itchy, watery eyes, among other symptoms. With researchers declaring spring 2012 the worst allergy season yet, is it possible for the typical sufferer to imagine life without daily doses of Claritin or Zyrtec? The answer, from what I’ve found in practice, is a resounding yes. As a naturopathic doctor, I seek to treat the cause of disease, rather than simply abolish symptoms, the reason being that quelling symptoms doesn’t eradicate the source of the disease process.

I had the great honor and privilege of working with esteemed naturopathic doctor Peter D’Adamo during my four years of medical school. I also helped him launch his first clinic and retail facility in Brooklyn during my first six months after graduation. My medical school alumni magazine did a feature story about Dr. D’Adamo, which also weaves in my own story of how I came to practice medicine and how I incorporate the Blood Type Diet and epigenetics into my own work as a physician.
