My daughters’ ENT told me to administer their allergy medication from September until April. Seasonal allergies? If it lasts 3/4 of the year, can we call them seasonal?
One thing that just doesn’t seem right to me is to fill my kids full of chemicals to keep them comfortable and able to breathe. The inhaler drives me crazy. One puff and they turn into complete maniacs, bouncing off the walls and ceilings. What was supposed to be a rescue inhaler, they were using daily. What am I pumping into my babies?
Now that my girls are back to school, I know I need to stay on top of their health to ensure they actually get to go to school. Georgia missed 14 days last year. 14! I just can’t have a repeat of that this year. Here’s what I’m doing to keep my family healthy from the start of school until the end of allergy season:
Stay Away From Germs
The masks are overkill, but my niece and nephew have the right idea. To stay healthy, we need to avoid germs. Stay away from those you know are feeling under the weather. Remind yourself and your kiddos to wash your hands frequently. I’m not a huge user of anti-bacterial sanitizer (fear of superbugs, I suppose), but I do make sure I know that I’m eliminating the germs around me as much as possible.
Reduce Allergens Around You
I love the idea of reducing allergens and toxins as naturally as possible. Houseplants can clean the air inside your home. Plus, plants make a home seem cheerier! Just be careful to avoid plants gathering dust or harvesting mold. That could just make matters worse.
Get Relief Naturally
I’m thrilled that there is an alternative for my allergy-prone children and grown-ups alike. Zarbee’s is releasing a new, all natural remedy for seasonal pollen and congestion. Zarbee’s Seasonal Relief is the first ever natural and clinically proven product that provides relief. Made from Butterbur Ze 339, previously only available in Switzerland, this seasonal relief is free from drugs. It features all natural ingredients proven to work safely.
The tiny tablet worked from morning until evening. According to the package directions, you can take up to three a day. Since I had multiple boxes, I shared with my mom and friend Melissa. Melissa had really good results with pollen, but it didn’t combat the reactions to the new kitten in her home. My mom is a sneeze machine and never far away from tissues. She had a symptom-free day, but did need to take an additional pill around dinnertime.
Zarbee’s is non-drowsy and non-habit forming. I won’t have to worry about transforming my kids into spazs or zombies, but instead happy and healthier versions of themselves. Since it’s available now at Target and CVS, I can easily pick it up.
Know When To Talk to the Professionals
The chronic ear infections that plagued my children during allergy season got to be too much. After six in a few short months, we had tubes put in Harper’s ears. It’s made a dramatic improvement, I’ll be honest. But seeing my child being wheeled away on a hospital gurney broke my heart. Although it was drastic, it was necessary.
If you’re interested in trying Zarbee’s for yourself or your little bees, you can head over to the Zarbee’s Facebook page to request your own sample. I know I’m thrilled about the possibility of keeping my family healthy naturally this allergy season. I’ll admit, I’ve still got a lot to learn about seasonal allergies.
