It’s that time of year again — sneezing, itching, sniffling, and coughing. Chances are, you’re one of the 24 million Americans who experience seasonal allergies, and you’re familiar with the toll it can take on your body. Due to both the symptoms of seasonal allergies, and the physiological process your body goes through when reacting to an allergen, your health can suffer more than usual during this time of year. And oftentimes, allergy medicines only provide temporary relief. It’s important to keep in mind your body’s overall well-being when dealing with allergies, and not just treat the isolated symptoms.

You’ve seen it. You’ve heard about it. You may even have some of it lurking in your basement. But do you know just how much it can actually influence your health? Mold is everywhere. It travels through the air outside and inside in the form of spores, and you inhale them regularly. For the most part, these spores are harmless. But the real trouble comes when spores find patches of moisture and grow into toxic mold that can continue to grow in places where you spend a lot of time — like your home or your office building. When toxic mold is present indoors in your space, it becomes a much more constant threat to your health.
