Spring is in the air, a favorite time of year for those who enjoy fresh air, sunshine, blossoming flowers, longer days, shorter nights, and birdsong. Spring also brings an unwanted visitor, seasonal allergies. Thankfully, improving gut health helps guard against allergies.
According to a paper published in Environmental Health Perspectives, about eight percent of American adults and seven percent of children struggle with seasonal allergies. This health condition manifests most severely during spring and fall, and those percentages mean about 24.4 million Americans have seasonal allergies. It makes such allergies the 6th leading chronic illness in the United States.
Critically, seasonal allergies are getting worse. Quoting the above paper, “The evidence so far is preliminary, but it points to a confluence of factors that favor longer growing seasons for the noxious weeds and other plants that trigger seasonal allergies and asthma attacks. Carbon dioxide (CO2), in addition to being the principal global warming gas, can also be thought of as plant food—it’s the source of carbon needed to make sugars during photosynthesis. When exposed to warmer temperatures and higher levels of CO2, plants grow more vigorously and produce more pollen than they otherwise would.”
At least half of those who struggle with seasonal allergies seek medical treatment for their condition. What if there was another way to tackle allergies? What if there was a holistic remedy for allergies that did not involve medical interventions or pharmaceutical drugs?
Seasonal Allergies and Gut Health
One of the least-discussed aspects of seasonal allergies is the connection such allergies have to gut health. One does not usually think of their gut when considering allergies, but they are closely intertwined. Yet seasonal allergies are best overcome with a healthy, robust immune system. The largest density of immune cells is located in the small intestine.
Dr. Michael Ruscio, an allergy specialist, highlighted the connection between the body’s immune system, gut health, and seasonal allergies. “Your gut health is intricately connected to seasonal and food allergies. The strength of this connection is likely because the largest density of immune cells in the body is in the small intestine. People with seasonal allergies and asthma were more likely to have GI (gastrointestinal) symptoms than those with other chronic diseases and the general population.” The logical conclusion from Dr. Ruscio’s research? Do everything possible to create a healthy gut. A better immune response and fewer seasonal allergy symptoms will likely follow.

Quoting Jackie Page, “Raw Organic Kamut® Wheatgrass Blend – Juice Powder is a high-protein grain containing 30% more protein than wheat.
