Why Allergies Happen

... to good people

Allergies occur when our immune systems decide something harmless, like pollen, is an enemy worthy of an all out assault. The war that follows compromises the integrity of our eyes, nasal passages, throats, and lungs, and sacrifices energy we could be using to enjoy our lives.

The battleground, our bodies, can get pretty torn up when allergy cells release chemicals like histamine to "kill" the enemy allergens. Those caustic chemicals irritate our eyes, noses, throats and airways.
