I think with all these anti allergy medicines, we’re really tackling allergies the wrong way.
If there’s a problem, you don’t treat the symptom, you treat the cause. That’s why we should just vacuum all the pollen on our lawns.June 17, 2014 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1197144👑RebYidd23Participant
It’s not the pollen’s fault.December 8, 2016 7:38 am at 7:38 am #1197145

Or you can move to another climate/state/country/planet where you won’t be exposed to the seasonal allergy triggers. You can leave your lawn as is.December 8, 2016 8:24 am at 8:24 am #1197146
LB- is there such a place? Please tell me about it before next allergy season starts. I’m moving there for the Spring, b”n.December 8, 2016 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1197147EphraimParticipant
I live in Monsey and suffer from these seasonal allergies. I have found that over the past 20 years or so, whenever I am in HK or China during the spring, they are either non existent or much more milder than usual. However in the years that I travel to Keristier for the Yahrzeit of R’ Shayala they are there in force.December 8, 2016 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #1197148
Yes. I don’t get seasonal allergies anymore. I grew up in the mid-east and dealt with miserable annual stuff.
I wish I could tell you privately because here I would be publicizing too much.
It def exists.December 8, 2016 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1197149
You can maybe Google best areas to live in the US for allergy sufferersDecember 8, 2016 2:10 pm at 2:10 pm #1197150
You get allergies in Israel?December 8, 2016 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1197151WinnieThePoohParticipant
Yes there are seasonal allergies in Israel too. Israeli trees also make pollen, and since the blossoming season starts sometime in shevat, and winter frost that usually puts an end to summer allergies doesn’t really ever come, seasonal allergies sort of become all-year round allergies. and then there are all those sandstorms, not great at all for those with respiratory problems. B”H for allergy medications!
It can take time to develop an allergy – so that someone moving to a new place/climate might be fine in the beginning, but after several years, the allergic reaction starts again.December 9, 2016 1:04 am at 1:04 am #1197152HealthParticipant
WtP -“and then there are all those sandstorms, not great at all for those with respiratory problems”
Even without sandstorms, when I was there, the sand went up my nose.
That was the only allergies that bothered me there. They don’t have too many trees, so my allergies that I have here in the US, didn’t bother me!December 9, 2016 1:53 am at 1:53 am #1197153
Lakewood is the worst place for allergies that I’ve ever been in. But how bad it is depends on the year. There have been some years that were far worse than others.December 9, 2016 1:54 am at 1:54 am #1197154
“It can take time to develop an allergy – so that someone moving to a new place/climate might be fine in the beginning, but after several years, the allergic reaction starts again.”
It’s interesting – I have often found that the second year that I lived in a new place was often the worst. Although in some of the cases, I think it happened to be a bad allergy that year in general.December 9, 2016 3:20 am at 3:20 am #1197155

True true. Good point. Some years are worse than others.December 9, 2016 7:29 am at 7:29 am #1197156HealthParticipant

The city I grew up in – is worse than Lakewood. When I moved to Lakewood, my allergies weren’t as bad as before!
