Seasonal allergies can be rough in Western New York around this time of year.  There's good news though.  There are ways to make it better...with food.

Welcome to summer in Western New York where we can finally open up our windows to get some fresh air in. But unfortunately, with the fresh air comes all the things that will aggravate your allergies. Pollen, grass, hay, and of course our furry pets all drive us nuts.  Add those things to the nice cool breeze off the lake and we have a recipe for lots of snot.

Everyone is different and their bodies will react differently.  For some people, these things might not make a difference at all.  Then others will swear by them.  I am not a doctor, but will happily take the advice of one.  According to Dr.Morris Nejat, the first thing you need to do is see an allergist to determine first of all if it actually is allergies that are causing your discomfort and if it is, what type of allergy is it?
