Millions of people have allergies. The most common air born allergy is to pollen. A few people have even died from an allergic reaction to pollen. Pollen allergies are directly linked to asthma, and people with pollen allergies are more likely to develop food allergies and intolerance.
Most people don’t realize that we can control the allergens in our air simply by modifying the landscape around our homes, businesses and schools.
In the new book, The Allergy Fighting Garden – Stop Allergies with Smart Landscaping by Thomas Leo Ogren, the reader learns how to control allergens by making modifications to their landscape.
This book was really eye opening for me. My six-year-old son has pollen allergies. If left untreated his ears fill up with fluid and he gets chronic ear infections. To prevent this he takes allergy medicine every day.
I had no idea that I can prevent his symptoms simply by removing some of the plants in our yard.
“It is well understood by many allergists that if someone is allergic to, say six, things, and three of them are removed, then the sufferer will often become symptom-free. This is an important insight. By creating and allergy-free yard, you will have eliminated the closest, most intense sources of what ails you. Even though your body will contact some allergens from outside your own area of control, your symptoms will probably diminish and sometimes they’ll disappear. This leads to the bucket theory of allergy. The Allergy-Fighting Garden: Stop Asthma and Allergies with Smart Landscaping”
He explains with full color photos the best plants to have in your landscape, how to eliminate allergy causing mold spores, how to understand the Ogren Plant Allergy Scale, and a complete A-Z listing of plants and their allergy index scale.
I recommend this book to anyone who suffers from pollen allergies or has a loved one that suffers from allergies or asthma. You can purchase The Allergy Fighting Garden Book on Amazon.com or at your local book store.
