It may seem hard to believe, but spring is actually just around the corner, in point of fact its been almost warm this past weekend in New York City, sunny too. We’re going to start off the spring with some posts back to other articles across the web to help everyone adjust to the warm weather as best we all can, happily so. Here’s an oldie from Sara Gottfried, M.D who had some good advice from over at the Huffington Post some time ago:
“It’s spring. Which means that along with flowers blooming and “beach body” resolutions looming, allergies are hitting. Hard.

Breathing is about the most basic function needed for survival, so it’s not surprising that there are thousands of medications available, from sophisticated inhalers to all manner of nasal sprays and antihistamines. But the numbers of asthma attacks and allergies continue to rise, which shows that these medications are just a Band Aid for a larger problem. They aren’t targeting the root cause of asthma and allergies: inflammation.”
