Spring is here! Which in Houston means the trees, grass, and flowers are blooming and this allergy season is predicted to be one of the worst ever for allergy suffers. In America, 1 in 5 people are estimated to suffer from seasonal allergies but as I have walked around Houston this last week and seen the faces of friends and neighbors, that estimate seems low. If this is the year you are looking for an alternative way of managing your allergies drug free, then we have a solution.
Seasonal allergies, such as Hay Fever, is your body’s reaction to allergens that enter the body through our skin, nose, eyes and lungs. These Allergens that your body views as a threat releases Histamines to counteract these foreign invaders. Histamines are well intended and here to keep us safe but once the allergy threshold is reached your body begins to overreact. This overreaction creates irritation to the area which is then accompanied by inflammation. Whether you are dealing with a runny nose, shortness of breath, headaches, itchy eyes, or a foggy head then Cryotherapy could help. It’s fast, affordable and works! The only thing you have to lose is the discomfort of allergy season.
How does Cryotherapy Help Fight Seasonal Allergies?
Cryotherapy (whole body) inhibits and degrades histamine, which is the source of your headaches, feeling foggy, or even a little bit sick. A session in one of our Cryotherapy Chambers triggers the release of epinephrine, a natural steroid, which reduces systemic inflammation, swelling and pain symptoms. Exposure to this type of mild cold stress resets your immune system and helps your body be less sensitive to the Allergens that would otherwise be a normal.
So this Year instead of sneezing try freezing!
