Title: Managing Seasonal Allergies
Presenter: Dr Elisabeth Philipps PhD BSc (Hons) BSc Nutr Med
Up to 30% of adults and 40% of children in the UK suffer from hay fever. Many people rely on a variety of drugs to counteract the often-debilitating symptoms such as itchy sore eyes, runny nose and asthma. However common medications such as anti-histamines only suppress the immune system and do not address the underlying cause of immune system imbalances. Histamine is a major mediator in immune-mediated allergies like hayfever and high levels of histamine release in the body through exposure to allergens, like grass pollens, coupled with high levels of histamine found in certain foods can exacerbate allergy type symptoms.
The peak allergy season of May-June will soon be with us so what will you be doing to prepare?
Join Elisabeth as she guides you through the latest allergy research and discusses functional nutrition approaches to naturally support seasonal allergies such as hayfever as asthma. Reference will be made to real life cases in which nutritional intervention has made a positive difference.
Webinar topics covered include:
- Understanding immune-mediated allergy mechanisms involved in seasonal allergies.
- The role of the gut in allergic reactions: The link between seasonal allergies and food allergies.
- Dietary programmes and interventions to manage seasonal allergies.
- A guide to choosing the right supplements to naturally support allergies including quercetin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin D.
This comprehensive webinar will provide you with a complete and effective framework for managing seasonal allergies with practical information on successful functional nutrition programmes. A full set of scientifically referenced slides and recording of the webinar are included in the investment price.
