(NC)-Sniffle, sneeze, and sniffle some more… As allergy season gets into full swing, this familiar cycle is going to once again wreak havoc on hay fever sufferers. Twenty-five per cent of Canadians live with allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, and many suffer in silence. Allergies impact all areas of our daily lives, from the office to the bedroom. For example, allergies can aggravate snoring and reduce the quality of sleep for both the snorer/allergy sufferer, and their bedmate.

Hay fever, or allergic rhinitis, is commonly caused by allergies to pollen from trees, grasses, weeds or airborne mold spores. Some people experience an allergic reaction to house dust, dust mites, animal dander or mold spores. While these tiny triggers are barely visible to the human eye, they can be found in nearly all homes to some degree. Dust mites, for example, are the number one problem for most allergy sufferers.

"Allergy symptoms are at their worst when the season changes. Treating the problem starts with minimizing your exposure to common allergens," says Dr. Adam Moscovitch, Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Calgary. "This way you often don't need to reach for the medications, like nasal sprays, decongestants or antihistamines, right away. You can try drug-free solutions first, that focus on improving air flow and allowing you to breathe better, like nasal strips."
