An introduction to the LIVESTRONG.COM Seasonal Allergies health center, along with links to other health centers.
The flowers are in bloom – but so are your allergies. While everyone else is enjoying the sunshine, you miserably sit in the corner sneezing. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Our newest health condition center, Seasonal Allergies can help you conquer your symptoms and join in the springtime fun.
The author of the LIVESTRONG.COM Seasonal Allergies center is internationally known internist, Leo Galland, MD. Winner of the Linus Pauling Award for his visionary approach to medicine, Galland is the director of the Foundation for Integrated Medicine.
His new book, “The Allergy Solution,” not only tackles typical allergies such as hay fever, asthma and eczema, but it also sheds light on little-known allergies that may lead to weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, ADHD, depression and digestive problems.
