Treat Allergic Rhinitis with Phototherapy

No Side Effects

If you have allergic rhinitis, you easily sneeze and have runny nose, watery eyes and itchy nose and eyes whenever you encounter allergens such as dust, molds and pollens or irritants such as smoke, perfumes and aerosol sprays.

You develop these symptoms because your immune system reacts easily to allergens and irritants. As soon as your immune system detects irritants and allergens, it immediately prompts your mast cells to release histamines to fight them, but these histamines also cause swelling, itching and mucus in your nose and eyes.

The most common medications being used to fight sneezing, runny nose and other symptoms are antihistamines. And certainly, you have taken a lot of these despite your concerns about short-term and long-term side effects.

One treatment that you can try is phototherapy. This treatment uses light to fight symptoms -- a healing principle that has been used for centuries, although in a more direct way, such as bringing weak babies or adults out of the house to feel the morning sun.

Today, pocket-sized phototherapy devices that deliver low-level narrow-band light to specific areas of the body are now available to treat pain, inflammation, musculoskeletal injury, allergic rhinitis and other illnesses.

One of these phototherapy devices is BioNase, a pocket-size device with ends that you can insert into your nose for about 4 to 5 minutes three times a day to relieve allergic rhinitis symptoms.
