5 Tips for Surviving Spring Allergy Season
Up to 50 million Americans (we can assume how many Canadians from that stat) suffer from seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis. Pollen is the most common season-related allergen. If you are one of those experiencing a stuffy nose, watery eyes, itchy nose or eyes, here are 5 tips for surviving allergy season:
1. Keep it cool. Turn on the air-conditioner and keep the windows closed to keep the pollen out of your home and car.
2. Change your clothes and shoes as soon as you get home, as pollen can stick to fabric.
3. Wear sunglasses. When you go out, don´t forget your sunglasses, as they can also help keep the pollen out of your eyes.
4. Strengthen your immune system. Some research suggests that having a healthy immune system can help you avoid allergies. Some foods that can help you strengthen your immune system are those rich in antioxidants like berries, tomatoes, green tea, etc. Also, probiotics and omega-3 fatty acids have shown to help boost your immune system.
5. Try some OTC remedies. Eye drops, nasal sprays and oral antihistamines can help. Although antihistamines are not addictive, they can lose some of their effectiveness over time. If your symptoms are not controlled, consider switching brands.
Adam's allergy medication tip: some antihistamines work better when taken on an empty stomach!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! Just remember a couple things if you are going to be celebrating today: Drink lots of water to replenish fluids; take a multivitamin (including B-complex vitamins); and eat something - and not just a bag of chips! Do these small things, and you'll thank me tomorrow morning :)

As the weather gets colder, outdoor activities can expose you to health hazards if you aren't properly dressed. To avoid frostbite or hypothermia, both conditions related to overexposure to wet and cold temperatures, dress for the weather by wearing appropriate outdoor clothing: layers of light, warm clothing; mittens; hats; scarves; and waterproof boots. Keep this in mind this winter season!

|Cooking with fats|
When cooking with fats, use only those fats that remain stable at temperatures above the boiling point, such as butter, olive oil, and unrefined palm and coconut oil. Don’t heat polyunsaturated vegetable oils, such as safflower, sunflower, and flaxseed oils. Heating these oils causes them to break down, allowing trans fatty acids to develop.
