Don’t Let Allergies Spoil Your Springtime Fun

by boiron on May 25th, 2011

Did you know that May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month? According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), May is the peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers. Today, the pollen count at Boiron’s headquarters in Newtown Square, Pa. is in the medium to high range at 7.7 (out of 12), and most of the country is right there with us, suffering through the medium (4.9) to high (12) levels.

Asthma and allergy sufferers everywhere are searching for much-needed relief, especially those living in this year’s “Spring Allergy Capitals.” Each spring and fall, the AAFA identifies “the 100 most challenging places to live with allergies,” based on pollen scores, the number of allergy medications used per patient, and the number of allergy specialists per patient, and names five “Spring Allergy Capitals.” This year’s “Capitals” are:

  1. Knoxville, TN
  2. Louisville, KY
  3. Charlotte, NC
  4. Jackson, MS
  5. Chattanooga, TN

If you are living in one of these cities, or if you’re one of rest of the millions of American affected by allergies and desperate for relief, you may want to try homeopathic medicines.
