When we think of allergy season, we usually think of spring, when everything starts blooming, new leaves are forming, springtime’s green grass, newly blooming flowers and… lots of pollen in the air to cause congestion, watery eyes and itchy throats. But fall also brings its fair share of seasonal allergies, too.
When we say allergies, what do you think of first? Hay fever, exactly. Although hayfever can be a fairly serious type of allergy, especially around spring and summer, it is not the only allergy. Allergies are caused by an overreaction of your immune system to a foreign agent in your environment. Your immune system’s function is closely connected to the function of your nervous system.
