Moms can be sensitive about a lot of things, and we all try very hard not to aggravate them. When it comes to Mother’s Day, it can be hard celebrating with a mom who has allergies. We want to show how much we care, but still want to make it a special day. Riviera Allergy Medical Center (RAMC) provides advice year-round to help allergy sufferers cope with everyday triggers, but there are a few special precautions our allergy treatment specialist, Dr. Ulrike Ziegner, recommends to help make sure moms who suffer from allergies, asthma, and food sensitivities have a memorable and fun day with their families:
- Allergy Friendly Recipes: Cybele Pascal provides some yummy-sounding recipes you can use to make special treats for mom. Recipes for Zucchini Pizza Appetizers, Meat Cake, and Easy Cauliflower Crust Pizza are a great start for your Mother’s Day brunch or dinner. The Nut-Free Mom also has a tasty recipe for Nut-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake.
- Watch Out for Flower Choices: Flowers are always a beautiful gift, but be careful if you’ve got a mom with allergies. Teleflora provides a helpful list of the best and worst plants for people with allergies. Top flowers for people with allergies include begonia, cactus, clematis, columbine, crocus, daffodil and geranium. Hosta, hydrangea, iris, lily, periwinkle, rose, tulip, zinnia can also be good options but check with someone else in the family first to make sure you’re making the right choice.
- Chocolate: Even a mom with food sensitivities can love a gift of chocolate, but be careful. Make sure there are no peanuts or peanut oils in any chocolate you buy. Premium Chocolatiers offers a variety of products that contain no nuts, no dairy, no gluten, and no eggs. Check out their special box of Mom’s Truffles.
If you, or a loved one, have symptoms of a cold more than four times per year you may be surprised to find out that this is actually not a result of your need to exercise more, or a low immune system, but rather a curable environmental allergy trigger. Riviera Allergy Medical Center can help you find a way to restore regularity to your breathing, and get a deeper night’s rest by examining the various environmental allergy triggers (pollens, grass, trees, inhalants, dogs, cats, mold, dust), as well as seasonal and food allergy triggers.
