Asheville is beautiful. Stunning mountain peaks, pristine springs and rivers, marvelous fall foliage, and striking spring and summer wildflowers are part of what makes living in western North Carolina so appealing. However, with an abundance of plant species, Asheville residents often suffer from pollen allergies.
The human body is amazing: watery eyes and runny noses, for example, flush foreign particles from your body. It’s a natural and healthy response from our immune system. When you have allergies, though, you are hypersensitive. Essentially, your body overreacts to substances that are not harmful to most others.
Your immune system starts sending out mast cells, which have receptors that can recognize harmful substances. When they identify things like pollen as a threat, they release histamines. This prompts your body to react so it can remove the harmful substance. Sneezing, wheezing, coughing, and tears all commence.
