Is it seasonal allergies or something else? What you need to know.

I’m loving the recent change of season! But I didn’t always feel this way…

Seasonal shifts used to hit me hard because of the impacts they had on my health. Every Spring and Fall, I used to struggle with allergy symptoms such as:

  • Brain fog
  • Low energy
  • Congestion
  • Earaches or infections
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • And downright, just feeling blah!

When I moved from a Northern California farming town full of pollen to sunny San Diego with refreshing ocean breezes for college in 2001, it seemed odd to develop seasonal allergies but I brushed it off, completely ignoring the smoke signal symptoms my body was sending that eventually led to a skin cancer diagnosis at the young age of 25.

Back then, I couldn’t think straight during seasonal changes due to allergy-induced headaches, sinus congestion that led to earaches, and super low energy, despite how much coffee I drank.

Now, seasonal shifts don’t phase me at all.  

Seasonal allergies might be common, but they are not normal. 

The frequency and intensity of seasonal allergies are clues about the immune system’s strength and your body’s inflammatory load; the more frequent and intense allergies are, the more inflammatory load you have and the lower your immune system.

The stronger your immune system is and the lower the inflammatory load, the more adaptable your body is and thus less reactive to things like pollens and allergens in the air.

Being diagnosed with skin cancer at such a young age motivated me to think about health differently and go searching for answers because, despite these health issues, my doctor always said my bloodwork looked normal and I was the “picture of perfect health” even though I didn’t feel that way.

And what I discovered was…

Inflammation is at the root of every symptom, condition, and disease.

Over time, I have implemented strategies to reduce the overall inflammatory load on my body and strengthen my immune system to get rid of seasonal allergies completely and never have a recurrence of skin cancer again (currently 15 years skin cancer-free!).

If you suffer from seasonal allergies or other health issues, there’s no need to suffer anymore. You can reduce and even prevent them, like I have. 

My friend and colleague, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, has traveled the globe, creating a brand new documentary series called “The Inflammation Equation” that explores ways to support your body’s natural healing process by lowering the #1 roadblock to healing: inflammation.

I’m honored to have been interviewed by Dr. Tom as part of the series to share my health journey and expertise to help others like you achieve your ideal health and weight, and defy everything we’ve been told about aging and health issues like I have.

Watch the Inflammation Equation!

This informative documentary series explores practical strategies to:

  • Identify (and overcome) potential underlying causes of inflammation.
  • Discover effective methods to support your body’s natural healing processes.
  • Learn from leading global experts in the field of health and wellness.

The series features insights from renowned figures like Jeffrey Bland, PhD, Bruce Lipton, PhD, me, and even Fran Drescher, plus over 50 other paradigm-shifting leaders.

The series starts April 4th, so mark your calendar and GRAB YOUR ACCESS PASS.

These are some of the most common signature signs of chronic inflammation, especially if you have two or more:

  • Allergies or asthma (especially if it progressively gets worse)
  • Constant body aches and pains (muscle and joint)
  • High blood pressure or cholesterol
  • Restless sleep, fatigue and/or lethargy
  • Any autoimmune disorder (Hashimoto’s, Colitis, Celiac, Crohn’s, etc.)
  • Get sick with a cold, flu or virus multiple times a year
  • Bouts of anxiety and/or depression
  • Constipation and/or diarrhea
  • Skin rashes, acne and breakouts

And the list could go on for a long time.

As you’ll see discussed in The Inflammation Equation documentary series, to reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune system, and boost the body’s ability to handle seasonal changes and reverse or prevent health issues, there are some strategic daily strategies you can implement, such as: 

  1. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet
  2. Being asleep by 10 pm and sleeping through the night
  3. Moving your body daily and decreasing exercise intensity on days you feel tired
  4. Drinking at least half of your body weight in ounces of water to flush toxins
  5. Taking time to destress and disconnect daily, even if it’s for 5 minutes at a time
  6. Gradually eliminating toxins from your environment 

Along my health journey, I have incorporated all of these strategies into my daily way of being to prevent seasonal allergies, and other health issues and create long-lasting results.

I hope you’ll watch The Inflammation Equation with me next week to understand what your personal inflammatory triggers are and the steps you can take to reduce them so you can unlock answers about your health, reduce your risk for disease, and prolong your life.
