AllergiesThinking about moving to Arizona to avoid nasal allergies? Think again, my friend. Allergens are everywhere.  Pollen, dust, animal dander, mold – all seemingly harmless until your body mistakes them for something sinister, like bacteria or a virus.  Next thing you know, bam!  You’re a red-eyed sneeze monster. 

Many people have seasonal allergic reactions to airborne pollens, grass and weeds. If you’re really unlucky, you’re stuck managing year-round with indoor allergens like animal dander, dust mites and mold. 

You don’t have to suffer!  Most people with typical allergies manage with Over-the-Counter (OTC) medicine.  There are plenty of affordable generic allergy products, with the same active ingredients as the name brands.  They can reduce or eliminate the allergic response and help you get through the seasons with minimal discomfort.

Most Popular Allergy Relief Products

Geri-Dryl Allergy Liquid 16 oz - Compares to Benadryl Allergy Liquid Allergy Medications - Nip allergies in the bud with these allergy relief  tabs and liquids, name brand or super value generic brands – your choice.  For alcohol-free, sugar-free allergy congestion relief, try Expectorant Liquid Diabetic Tussin.

The Snore Wizard Snoring Treatments - Anti-snore devices can be an easy solution to endless nights of disruptive sleep, but not every product works for every person.  We see that by the individual reviews.  They either work or they don’t depending on how you sleep, your size, the size of your mouth, teeth… it goes on.  The alternatives to these low cost devices, however, can be even more daunting than trying them out.

Neckpro Cervical Traction Device Almost everyone experiences back pain at some time in their lives.  For me, and I suspect for most, back pain is surprisingly debilitating and ridiculously persistent.  The good news is there are products to help manage back pain or even eliminate it all together.  

If your low back pain doesn’t go away after a few days, or you’ve been injured, feel leg tingles, numbness or  weakness, call your doctor or chiropractor.  But for routine, mild back pain, you can usually reduce the pain on your own. 

The first thing to do when you’ve injured your back is to ICE IT! Chilling the area reduces inflammation.  Heat does the opposite, and is usually recommended for sore joints, arthritis and chronic pain. Remember, use an ice pack for only 20 minutes per hour – for 24 to 48 hours.  

Managing back pain at home and preventing future back problems  involves some thought and a little work but it is well worth it.  Here are Allegro Medical’s top selling, most popular back relief products.

Best Selling Back Pain Products

Coccyx Cushion Coccyx Cushion – A super popular back pain reliever, the coccyx cushion helps relieve back pain by reducing the pressure on your spine and eliminating painful pressure on your tailbone. It is made of high density memory foam and is slanted so it tilts the pelvis forward to restore the natural lumbar curve.   Use it in your car, office, home… anywhere you sit!

Thermophore Automatic Moist Heat Pack Thermophore Automatic Moist Heat Pack - Heat is often recommended for back pain, joint pain, arthritis or back muscle spasms (remember, cold therapy is usually prescribed first, if area is inflamed), the Thermophore Moist Heat Pack is the optimal choice for natural heat treatments.  It delivers very intense, moist heat, but it needs no water because it produces its own moisture from the air.  Cool, huh.

Better Sleep Pillow - Side Sleeper Sleep Apnea Pillow Better Sleep Pillow - Besides eliminating pain from frozen shoulder or rotator cuff injuries and reducing or eliminating snoring, the Better Sleep Side Sleeper also supports your body for proper spinal alignment.  It is made of hypoallergenic memory foam.  (If you like ‘em firm, this could be your dream pillow).  Remember, all memory foam smells funny for the first few days out of the box, but the smell goes away.
