Focus podcast - Goodbye hay fever!

Back to Overview

You are here:

OMG, the pollen season has started again. Many allergy sufferers are currently struggling with watery eyes and a runny nose. But it doesn't have to be that way!

Prof. Dr. Dr. Torsten Zuberbier was a guest on the German FOCUS Gesundheit podcast "Auf Herz und Nieren - Der Podcast für ein gutes Körpergefühl" hosted by Andrea Bannert and Eva-Maria Vogel.
In this episode, he talks about allergies and new therapy options, and reveals why the immune system of allergy sufferers is even fitter than that of non-allergic people.

In this 45-minute interview, you will learn how the symptoms of an allergy differ from those of other respiratory diseases, which climatic conditions favor allergies, and why the allergy rate is higher in cities than in rural areas. You will also learn why it makes sense for allergy sufferers to know exactly which type of pollen they are allergic to and how a pollen forecast app can serve as a tool to adjust the therapy. Tune in and find out, among many other exciting topics, what you can do to alleviate allergy symptoms.
