Springtime is a difficult time for those who suffer from seasonal allergies because their immune systems react excessively to normally inoffensive stimuli, like pollen. The body identifies pollen as an invader and to fight, generates a chemical called histamine which normally protects the body. It’s what produces the usual symptoms of seasonal allergies: coughing, sniffling, sneezing, watery eyes, etc.
Not everything is as simple when it comes to allergies, since certain foods can worsen your condition. It’s the case with foods already rich in histamines, like aged cheeses and fermented foods.
