Tis' the season!
Nah, not the holidays...ALLERGIES! With pollen levels at an all time high, sneezing, draining, coughing, headaches, and itchy watery highs are wreaking havoc on some of us!
The absolute BEST way to eliminate allergies all together? Eliminate dairy from your diet. This will get to the root of your allergy issues, however, it will take time.
