As the snow continues to melt here in Massachusetts (even though we got a little but more last night), Spring is around the corner! For most of us, it is a time for appreciating gardens full of color, the chance to leisurely walk around the block in the evening, start our triathlon/race training outside, go camping or hiking…just enjoy the outdoors after being cooped up in our homes for a long winter. For some of us, it is the dreaded time of stuffy heads, headaches, watery itchy eyes, contact sinus drainage, all over body discomfort, itchy skin…do I really need to go on? Allergies are never much fun! Stress and lifestyle/diet choices can compound the problem and it’s symptoms.
