Ep.57 It’s Allergies, Not COVID

In This Episode

In this episode, Neal and Daena do a quick (remote) discussion of allergies, since it’s that time of year – and with all the hysteria right now,  allergy symptoms might be mistaken for Covid-19.

So Dr. Neal breaks down what histamines are, and what exactly is going on in our bodies when they act up.

He also discusses the different allergy treatments available… but Daena steals the show with a story of the most out-there allergy treatment Neal has ever heard of – and she stands by it.

Topics Discussed

  • Coronavirus update
  • Allergy season
  • Mast cells
  • Histamines in detail
  • Different antihistamines
  • A wacky allergy treatment that Daena tried
