It is quite scary now to go out in public places because of the different viruses and bacteria that might compromise our health. Like the flu season where people get sick because of the influenza virus lurking around.
This spring and also the fast approaching summer, it is allergy season once again for some people and we have to be very careful with the places we go to. With me, I get the allergy attacks during these seasons and the heat can aggravate it, that is why I have to be very careful with what I touch and where I go. I don’t get sick easily and thank goodness we have good genes and that makes us not vulnerable to any illnesses. However, allergy can be very frustrating when it attacks. Headache and inflammation of sinus gets worse during this time, so getting myself ready for this season is a must.
Upon my research I have found some foods and root crops that can actually help build the immune system to fight colds and allergies and that is the astragalus roots.
