What do people who suffer from environmental or food allergies need to know?

Lack of sun. Vitamin D drops are available. - Oct 31, 2017
Nothing unless you are allergic to the cold. - Sep 26, 2016
Horrible spring allergy season here. Eating out with food allergies would be very difficult, especially if you do not speak Russian. - May 17, 2016
Pollen count can be high, especially in June when the trees pollinate so bring your Benadryl, Claritin, Allegra. Vegetarians will have a hard time but it can be done. - Jun 30, 2015
The air quality will affect you initially, but you just adapt. I would say there are options for probably every diet food-wise or you can ship it in. While Russia is very much a meat-centric country, I was able to find a number of vegetarian options at the restaurants we went to. - Oct 14, 2014
