It is freezing and some of us are really feeling the Winter cold! However, it is not too late to keep your house allergy free over the coming months. Don’t forget, if you do not think it is an allergy and have already consulted a doctor, our intolerance testing process can help you as it may well be an intolerance. Just follow the seven steps below which will help you be allergy and intolerance free!
1) Order an intolerance test
Dealing with your intolerance symptoms can be a testing time for you. Don’t worry though, our state-of-the-art expert lab technicians work around the clock to make the process as easy as possible for you. The intolerance testing process helps you to discover what is causing your symptoms, which is covered below.
2) Identify your symptoms
First things first, it is important that you identify what is causing your symptoms and whether they are caused by an allergy or an intolerance. So, say you have a runny nose or a headache and you are not sure what is causing it, then intolerance testing can help to identify whether your headache is caused by mould, dust or something else entirely!
3) Be aware of what is around you
Throughout the Winter, the temptation is to sit inside, turn the heating up and hide inside. Although this is comfortable, it can actually cause you harm. This is because with the windows shut, dust particles and mould is likely to build up due to the change in temperature. Try to make sure that you do not have an intolerance or an allergy to any of the items within your house, and keep your house clean.
4) Beat the Cold and Mould
Alongside all the food-related allergies that we have to deal with, some of the worst symptoms that we suffer from are from an airborne intolerance. If you are overexposed to airborne particles on a constant basis, then it may mean that you have developed an intolerance. Our intolerance testing process can help you to identify whether or not you have an intolerance to these substances, and we recommend that you clean your house constantly. Get rid of any dust particles that may have built up, as well as the mould, including behind the sofa!
5) Don’t forget about the food!
Winter is more about being aware of airborne allergies and intolerances. BUT this does not mean that we should neglect our diets. With it being cold, the temptation is to find comfort in ready meals and processed foods, as they are convenient. The only issue is that these foods are often unhealthy, with high sodium levels and also other potentially harmful items.
6) Stay Vigilant
Hay fever should not be an issue in the Winter, hopefully! There are always potential allergens which your body struggles to tolerate though in certain circumstances so just make sure that you are not suffering from an intolerance to any airborne particles or viruses. Enjoy yourself this Winter, and relax, but please do remember to clean, air out your house, and divulge in delicious homemade foods which you know your body can tolerate.
