Ragweed Allergy Symptoms

Ragweed blooms from late August to November, producing a fine powder-like pollen. Unlike other plants that rely on birds and insects for pollination, Ragweed pollen is spread by the wind, so it’s easy to get it in your airways.

If you’re one of the many people who react to Ragweed pollen, you’ll be feeling symptoms such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Headaches
  • Irritated eyes
  • An itchy throat

So that fall “cold” may indeed be Hayfever, caused by the Ragweed pollen in the air. If you suffer from asthma, Ragweed pollen can make your symptoms worse, increasing coughing and wheezing.

What causes the allergic reaction?

In some people, the pollen is seen as a foreign substance and your immune system kicks in with a hefty dose of histamine to fight against the pollen. It’s the histamine that causes the allergic symptoms – that runny nose and itchy throat.

Traditional treatments are called antihistamines, and they are formulated to block those pesky histamines your body produces. Unfortunately, many of these medications have side effects, like making you drowsy.

Natural Treatments for Histamine Reactions

There are several things you can do to lessen the effects of the Ragweed pollen.

  1. Prepare your body for the allergy season as early as possible. Take a product like Histamine Shield Plus and boost your body’s immune system so it doesn’t produce the histamine reactions.
  2. Stay indoors as much as possible when the pollen count is high.
  3. Use an allergen filter on your air-conditioning unit.
  4. When you do go outside, wear sunglasses and hat.
  5. Change your clothes and wash your face and hands when you come back inside.
  6. Use a nasal wash to remove any pollen in your nasal passages.
