Ragweed Allergy Season is Here

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Are ragweed and allergy symptoms getting you or a loved one down? If so, you are invited to attend a free education seminar on Tuesday, September 1 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at NorthPointe Health and Wellness Campus. Dr. Ronald Ragotzy, a specialist in Immunotherapy and Allergy will be presenting “Ragweed Allergies: Are They Strangling You” and help answer your questions on this topic.
Did you know that about half of pollen-related allergic rhinitis in North America is caused by ragweed? Ragweed allergy symptoms appear in mid-August and fade with the first frost. Effective allergy medications are now available over the counter, but the only way to eliminate allergies is with immunotherapy, which comes in three forms- pills, shots and drops. Learn more about immunotherapy and ways to help your ragweed allergy symptoms.
For an appointment with Dr. Ragotzy, please call 815-525-4500. NorthPointe Health and Wellness is located at 5605 E. Rockton Rd. in Roscoe.
