Fight allergies with Cryotherapy
Spring is usually welcomed with joy following the prolonged cold and miserable months of winter, yet it does have its downside; snow melts, the plants begin to bloom, and here come the allergens. Spring is here, a mixed blessing, with itchy eyes and runny noses.
What happens when you have an allergy?
Allergy symptoms are the immune system kicking in, a response to foreign substances invading our bodies. More histamine is produced, this response causes inflammations hence these unpleasant symptoms we all know so well.
Avoiding these annoying substances may be the simplest and most effective method, but it is also impractical, even often impossible. Pollen can come in through open windows, so it is not just a question of staying at home, it is doing so with closed windows while constantly hoovering to get rid of any particle that may have found its way in. This is not the way to live, and this is where Cryotherapy comes in.
How does Cryotherapy affect allergy reactions?
Taking an antihistamine, the common medications used to fight allergies makes most people drowsy and sleepy to the point that they are forced to use other drugs to counter this unpleasant effect. This is far from being the perfect solution,
Whole body Cryotherapy or WBC is an effective and safe alternative to treat allergies. It works by blocking the production of histamine, and all these nasty symptoms like itchy eyes, congestion, and runny nose. As if this was not enough, the freezing dry cold also triggers the production of epinephrine, a natural steroid the body uses to reduce inflammation. People found that cryotherapy also helps with the hypersensibility to pollen and improves their immunity.
