It's that time of year again—the time when your nose is constantly running and your eyes are itchy. Springtime allergies can be a real nuisance, but did you know they can also cause brain fog? If you're struggling with cognitive issues like trouble concentrating and poor memory, it might be due to your allergies. Luckily, there are several things you can do to ease your symptoms.
The first step is to identify what's causing your allergies. Common culprits include pollen, pet dander, mold, and dust. Once you know what you're dealing with, you can take steps to avoid or reduce exposure. For example, if pollen is the problem, try staying indoors as much as possible on high-pollen days. If pets are the issue, keep them away from the bedroom and vacuum regularly.
In addition to avoiding allergens, you can also try some natural remedies. Herbal supplements like ginger or quercetin can help relieve allergy symptoms, as can saline nasal sprays and over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen or antihistamines. And if all else fails, talk to your doctor about prescription medications.
