Naturopathic Family Medicine, located in Upper Fremont, advises us to get out this month, to enjoy the buds of Spring and the longer days. Take a walk with a friend, or simple step outside occasionally to feel the rays of sunshine (when they appear,) hear the birds chirping and see nature in bloom. Time out of doors (even in the urban environment) can improve mood, decrease anxiety, and be overall nourishing for the body.
For those who suffer from seasonal allergies, and over 50 million people in the U.S. have allergies, being outdoors can be difficult. Finding the allergen, or the cause of the allergy, can take you a long way towards treatment and relief from allergy symptoms. One of the most effective ways to find out what allergies you have is with the skin ‘scratch’ test. NFM is very excited to now be able to offer the GREER allergy test, an easy and quick method for identifying allergy triggers. For more information, visit the NFM website.
