Fall Into Wellness

Along with CoolSculpting, here are a couple of ideas to help make the transition to autumn a little easier.

With the beginning of fall happening, many of us have started to feel the change in the weather. With the change in temperature, many people have allergies which kick up or even will begin getting sick. Here are a couple of ideas to help make the transition to autumn a little easier.
1. Close Your Windows. Although it may be tempting to get some fresh air, this may be one of the things that is triggering your allergies. Try your best to keep the inside of your house free from outside allergens to lessen your time spent stuffed up.
2. Take a Shower. After being outside, your clothes, shoes, and body will have particles which may contain your allergens. Leaving your shoes by the door and jumping in the shower to change out of your clothes will help get rid of those. You can also try using a eucalyptus shower disk to open up your sinuses. You can purchase them or make your own.
3. Drink More. Fluids will help keep you hydrated and can help to thin any mucus which may be in your nasal passages. If you drink things like tea it has an added benefit of steam to help clear any blockages, and if you use honey it can help soothe your throat from postnasal drip symptoms. Peppermint tea is also a good drink because it naturally soothes and has a fresh taste.
4. Get An Air Filter. If your allergies are impossible to escape, you may want to invest in a home air purifier. You can buy ones for single rooms from most retailers and many have special settings for allergens. Compare reviews online to find the one that will work best for you.
5. Take A Vacation. Although it would be impossible for most of us to take a vacation for the entire allergy season, taking a couple of days or weeks away can be beneficial. Find a location where your allergens are low or non-existent and have some fun for a few days.
Chiropractic care has not been scientifically shown to help alleviate allergies, however, there are many symptoms that allergy sufferers deal with. These include body aches and sore necks and backs, often caused by excessive sneezing. If you suffer from these, stop in and see how much a spinal adjustment can help you feel better. Ready to reinvent yourself this season? Maybe it is time to call ThinSculpting in Cary or Wake Forest to schedule your first consultation. The process is non-invasive and FDA cleared.
