I have never suffered from seasonal allergies, but Forrest sure does! We recently found out that Jack more than likely does as well, so our house is definitely full of the sniffles this time of year. Here’s some more information so you, too, can celebrate the happy smells of spring! Check out www.nasacort.com for more information.

Sweet spring! For many, it’s the perfect time of year to go outside and soak in the smell of tree blossoms wafting through the air, the soapy scent of puddles as you wash your car and the earthy aroma of topsoil from a friendly neighbor’s backyard garden.

But for the millions of allergy sufferers who sneeze at the first sign of spring in April and can’t put the tissues down until July, freshly cut lawns and blooming flowers mean pollen and another round of seasonal suffering with symptoms like sneezing and nasal congestion. These symptoms not only make you feel miserable, they also often impact your sense of smell, keeping you from fully enjoying the Happy Smells of the season.

With this in mind, Dr. Charles J. Wysocki, an expert on the science of smell, and Neil Pasricha, allergy sufferer and author of The Book of Awesome and 1000 Awesome Things blog, are working to educate Americans about why sense of smell is important and encourage them to celebrate the awesome scents of spring.

 

“Every day, I celebrate the little moments in life that are truly awesome – and from the smell of the first barbecue wafting over your neighbor’s fence to the smell of rain on a hot sidewalk, the spring time is full of them,” Pasricha explained. “But like a lot of people, I suffer from terrible seasonal allergies and can’t smell a thing unless I take care of the symptoms with Nasacort Allergy 24HR. For me, awesome things are what life’s all about. So the more I manage my allergies, the more awesome things I experience.”

 

Nasacort provides 24 hour relief of sneezing, itchy runny nose and the toughest nasal allergy symptom – congestion, helping to ensure these symptoms don’t interfere with people’s ability to smell clearly. This is important because smell can impact everything from people’s mood to their performance at work to their sense of well-being.[1] In addition, Nasacort is specially formulated to account for the preferences of nasal allergy sufferers. Nasacort is scent and alcohol free unlike Flonase, another nasal allergy spray. In fact, in a clinical study, people preferred Nasacort over Flonase.*

 

“Smells are chemicals – and although many people think of chemicals as bad things, they are integral to our experiences,” Dr. Wysocki explained. “Smell is also the only sense with a direct link to the part of the brain called the limbic system, which governs emotion and behavior. That’s why for many people, smells can evoke feelings or make them recall vivid or emotional old memories. It’s a powerful sense that affects us every day.”
