Aww, April Allergies
Hi, I am Debora-Kay Katz, and I am a Family Nurse Practitioner at Shawnee Family Health Center in Adams County, Ohio. This month I am seeing many patients and co-workers with seasonal allergies. I love Adams County, and it is known for its beautiful scenery, rolling fields, and wooded hills. With warmer weather and April flowers, people that suffer from allergies may not be able to appreciate spring to its fullest. Watery-red-sore-eyes, runny-nose, and scratchy-throat are miserable. These are all symptoms of an unbalanced immune system. I have gathered some suggestions to help or at least to distract.
If symptoms are persistent, see your health care provider. You may need to go to an immunologist. An immunologist can perform precise tests to determine your specific allergy and offer treatments to fit your personal needs.

I sound like one letter
But I am written with three
I show you things
When you look through me
What am I?
Oh! My Eyes:
A healing affirmation from Louise Hay,
“I Listen with love to my body’s messages. My body is always
working toward optimum health. My body wants to be whole and healthy. I cooperate and become
healthy, whole, and complete.”
