Improve sensitive symptoms

This spring, a group of people did not dare to sneeze openly. This group of people have a cold? NO! They may be patients with allergic rhinitis. Spring is the peak of allergic rhinitis. With the flowers blooming, a lot of dust is floating in the air. Many people have strong allergic reactions after inhaling. This allergic reaction is very similar to cold symptoms, how to distinguish them? How to effectively relieve the discomfort caused by allergic rhinitis?

There are three main symptoms of allergic rhinitis, nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. At first glance, the symptoms are similar to those of a cold, but there are still many differences in the details. How do you quickly determine if you have a cold or allergic rhinitis? Simply put, the basic symptoms of patients with allergic rhinitis are runny nose, paroxysmal sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes. At the same time, it is generally uncomfortable during the morning.

Let's take a look at your immune system first. When a foreign body enters your body, your immune system's job is to identify the intruder. Then, it must be determined whether it constitutes a threat. If it is a threat, the immune system will neutralize it. On the other hand, the immune system must also learn to understand "invaders" who are not threats. It should learn to recognize food protein, which is harmless from pollen or animal dander. It should have a certain skill, knowing that it does not need to interfere with the entry of these proteins into your body. However, when you are allergic, your immune system treats proteins that should be considered harmless (such as grass pollen or dog dandruff) as a terrible threat. Therefore, it assembled an offensive force. Some symptoms include coughing, sneezing, wheezing and feeling pain.


As you can see, allergies are just a false immune response. The key to maintaining the balance of the immune system is found in cells called regulatory T cells. These immune cells can suppress the cells that make the immune system work. They are "Generals" who tell your immune system not to attack. Think of your immune system as an army led by secret leaders who are busy debating whether to attack or shrink. If the "invader" is harmless, regulatory T cells are responsible for advocating restraint and sending these signals.

In people with allergies, your regulatory T cells are low in number or unable to chemically express instructions correctly. They do not produce enough chemical signals to suppress immune activity, thereby blocking your immune system when the foreign protein is harmless. When you have an allergic reaction, your immune system's regulatory cells "General" will lose the function of guiding the activities of the immune system. Fortunately, conventional medicine is beginning to find ways to maintain the immune system by improving the immune system.

Immunotherapy for allergic rhinitis exposes the body to the protein that causes allergic reactions - allergens. Over time, this will make the body lose sensitivity to it (allergen). Although immunotherapy may not completely cure allergies, clinical evidence shows that immunotherapy can greatly reduce allergic reactions even after treatment is stopped. We still don’t know how immunotherapy works. But we have some clues. . . Clinical studies have shown that immunotherapy can increase the number of T regulatory cells and the anti-inflammatory chemical signals sent by regulatory T cells. In other words, it increases the number of "Generals" whose immune system needs to be strengthened.

If you have an allergic reaction but are unwilling to try immunotherapy, the following steps can still help you maintain a healthy immune function:


1) Reduce stress as much as possible

Stress increases the burden on the immune system and worsens allergies. Try to give your body the opportunity to be exposed to allergens and react appropriately. Enough sleep, regular exercise and relaxation can help reduce stress. In addition, taking Sun Chlorella Agaricus blazei powder or Sun Wakasa Gold Plus can stimulate T cells and enhance the ability to fight viruses.

​​2) Use probiotics and prebiotics

Studies have shown that probiotics may help reduce allergic reactions. Probiotics play a key role in helping your immune system function properly. In particular, they may help increase the number of regulatory T cells to support the balance of immune function. Make sure to supplement by eating foods rich in probiotics (such as yogurt or kimchi).  Eat chlorella, one of the best sources of prebiotics, which contains cellulose that can help the body's probiotics grow three times faster.
