If you suffer from hay fever, allergic rhinitis or any other seasonal allergy, you know how annoying it can get during the spring time, when trees and bushes are flowering all around. Pollen from trees, grasses and weeds are known as the most common triggers for seasonal allergies. The pollen from oak, birch, maple and poplar trees are causing spring allergies. Ragweed, Bermuda grass, Johnson grass, and Ryegrass can trigger summer allergies. The dust, mold and pet dander could be a year-round problem. Runny nose, nasal congestion, watery or itchy eyes, sneezing, cough, an itchy nose, a dry roof of the mouth or throat, sinus pressure and facial pain, swollen, blue-colored skin under the eyes (allergic shiners), decreased sense of smell or taste – do any of these symptoms sound familiar to you? Then you are on the right page. Homeopathy has a handful of remedies to help you, and the beauty of it is that you don’t have to suffer so much.
If you’ve already tried a variety of conventional over-the-counter medication to manage your symptoms, you know that they often tend to make a person feel drowsy, edgy or just plain lousy. You should know that homeopathic remedies are free of such side effects, and are successful in effectiveness.
Homeopathic remedies for hay fever and seasonal allergies
There are two options in homeopathic treatment for seasonal allergies and such. Homeopathic remedies can help with acute conditions as you experience the symptoms. Or, even better, a constitutional remedy chosen by a homeopath will bring long-lasting relief. Let’s go into more details about that.
Acute Care – homeopathic remedies bring quick relief in hay fever and seasonal allergies
If you decide to address the allergy as acute, get in touch with a homeopath as soon as you start developing symptoms. The sooner you’ll seek for help; the sooner you will feel better. There are many remedies that can bring relief, and a homeopath will choose the best one that matches your symptoms. Homeopaths don’t look for a label of the disease; they will be more interested in how it is expressed by you. Any details about the sickness count for a prescription, no matter how small the details are. Let’s look into two different cases.
First, there could be someone with profuse watery eyes and nasal discharge, causing painful redness under the nose. They could also have a headache, made worse when in a stuffy room or closing their eyes. Another person will complain about acrid, watery discharge from the eyes, burning and irritated, which hurt more when looking at light. They could also have a runny nose, the mucus clear and bland. Did you notice a slight difference between the two? Apparently, they seem to be the same according to other types of medical disciplines. But when you have a closer look and go into details, you will find that the first presented case will work better with the prescription of Allium Cepa, and the second one will be helped with Euphrasia. Your job as a patient is to describe your symptoms in as much details as you can. Anything that is weird and unusual is important for a homeopath, no matter how absurd it sounds. Take your time, pay attention to any details, and observe. You don’t need to look for explanations or find answers; just describe your symptoms the best you can and leave it for the homeopath to do the rest. By taking the homeopathic remedy for acute, you will feel a lot better, and the need for medication would be little, or even non-existent.
Constitutional remedy brings long-lasting relief in hay fever and seasonal allergies
But, if you want to address it to the root cause of the problem, a constitutional remedy should be chosen. The constitutional remedy acts more deeply and will usually bring long-term improvement. In my practice, I have seen many cases when the symptoms never appeared again! It is advised to start the constitutional treatment at least 3 months prior before allergy season starts. This gives enough time for your body to balance itself and decrease your sensitivity to triggers. It could be the case where you might still react to the allergy, but it would affect your body much less than before. This especially happens if you’ve had the allergy for years. But after a year under homeopathic treatment, the allergy will affect your body even less. The success of homeopathy depends on a few factors: how long you’ve had the allergy for, how much medication you used to take, your level of health, and your body response to the homeopathic remedy. I always encourage everyone to look for homeopathic treatment, because you never know how much relief it will bring you until you try.
