How to Manage your Allergies this Summer!

The flowers have bloomed and so have your allergies. Pollen is the biggest cause of allergies. Pollen comes from flowers, trees, weeds, and grass. It is carried by the wind from place to place, and can cause your allergies to be triggered. Smog and insects are also worse during this time of year triggering allergies. Symptoms of allergies include: runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes and nose, and dark circle under your eyes. There are a few things that you can do to help prevent allergy symptoms:

  • Stay inside when pollen count and smog levels are high.
  • Keep doors and windows closed.
  • Use an air purifier.
  • Replace air filters often.
  • Wash bedding and rugs in hot water to get rid of dust mites.
  • Wash and changes clothes after being outside and vacuum often.

These tips may make the allergy season easier, but it is also recommended that you discuss your symptoms and possible relief remedies with your Primary Care Provider (PCP).

If you need assistance with scheduling an appointment with your PCP, please call our friendly Customer Service Department today at 1-888-JAI-1999, and we will assist you with your scheduling needs.


Fun in the Sun Tips!

As it gets warmer, we all find ourselves going outside to enjoy the weather. This time of year has its own set of health risks associated with the heat. In order to keep you and your family safe this summer, please follow these basic summer tips:

  • Use sunscreen. Use a “broad spectrum” sunscreen to protect against both types of sun rays. Remember to apply 15 minutes prior to going outside for full protection.
  • Drink plenty of water. The amount of water varies from person to person (talk to your PCP for a more exact number). Try to avoid coffee and dairy products as they tend to cause dehydration.
  • Choose your time wisely. The hottest period of a day is usually between 11am and 2pm. Try to schedule outdoor activities earlier in the day or later in the afternoon.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure when possible. Although shorts and tank tops give your skin more breathing room, they also leave more exposure to the sun. Try linen and cotton clothing in light colors to get the same effect with less exposure. Don’t forget your hat and sunglasses.
  • Know your limit. Listen to your body and look out for signs of overheating. Headaches, muscle aches, nausea, and general fatigue are all signs its time to take a break, drink some water, and rest in the cool shade.
  • Look out for those at risk. Elderly family members and neighbors as well as children are more susceptible to heat related illnesses and should be kept out of the sunlight during peak hours.
