I am glad that you posted this information. Thank you. It is very helpful. My neighbors planted 2 aspen trees in the middle of our property boundaries. The trees are now taller than my house. I am concerned about my sensitivity this Spring. I will speak to my immunologist about this. Maybe we can be pro active and prevent some problems! ☺
Obviously the writer has never spent a spring or fall in Portland, OR. Constant sneezing, runny/watery itchy eyes, runny/stuffy nose, and general tiredness. Every year! Without a stop. When the TREES bloom, When the FLOWERS and the GARDEN bloom, when the late spring early fall GRASSES grow. It can be miserable.

Spring allergies can be miserable @friendjudy ! I hope you were able to start your spring allergy treatment plan early and that it's helping.

Very early spring observation in your garden. There are many questions at this time of the year about pollen in the garden - park or schoolyard. How can I find out, the difference between a male (pollen producing) shrub or tree and female shrub or tree ? MALE flowers in early spring are YELLOWISH and the FEMALE flowers are RED . The flowers are in clusters during very early spring, before the leaves develop .
Since 2010 some 300 Salt Rooms, which offer natural Salt Room Therapy, have opening in the USA. Developed by Russian pulmonologists in the mid 1990s, this therapy can greatly help with allergies, asthma and more. It's not a quick fix, and most doctors in the USA are not familiar with it yet, so be proactive and research this one yourself.
Natural nasal barriers also can be effective and can be used with existing medication such as nasal sprays and anti-histamines. They are applied at the base of the nostrils and trap the allergens - pollen etc. They are extremely safe but you should still consult with your doctor before using them.
Hi Melissa, Thanks for asking My allergy triggers are tree pollen, grass pollen, dust and mold spores. I have used a natural nasal barrier with great effect for the dust and mold and it is now working well for my spring allergies.
