Hay fever & Allergies
Allergies are on the increase and living with an allergy can make things that other people take for granted, near impossible or even life threatening. Allergy awareness still has a long way to go in the UK, but pressure is now on restaurants, schools and workplaces to be more 'allergy aware'.
21 million people in the UK suffer from allergies
People can be allergic to anything: most commonly it's foods, metals, pollen and grasses, but also animal dander and mould cause reactions too. A growing number of people have multiple allergies and there is a correlation between allergies and asthma. Allergies can start at any age and at any time, but spring and summer is particularly troublesome when up to 30% of UK adults have to endure several months of misery due to hay fever.
Can Homeopathy Help?
Homeopathy has an excellent track record of treating hay fever, in fact, it was a homeopath 150 years ago who developed the patch test, which is the leading method of allergy diagnosis used today.
When you have a reaction to an environmental allergen, your body releases histamine to deal with what it perceives as a threat. Taking anti-histamines may help bring immediate relief by dampening the body's immune response, but this doesn't stop it happening tomorrow, and the day after and the day after...
Homeopathy, taken before hay fever season starts, can help your body have less of a reaction to the allergen in the first place. There are lots of different remedies depending on how you experience hay fever - some people have itchy eyes, some people sneeze uncontrollably, other people have a runny nose.
Whatever your experience of hay fever, homeopathy can help.
Allergic reactions can be greatly reduced using homeopathic desensitisation, remedies which are specific your your particular allergy.
If you suffer from Oral Allergy Syndrome, or get rashes, hives, sneezing, itchy eyes, or rhinitis from moulds, animal dander or food, then homeopathy can help to reduce the severity of your reaction through desensitisation, so that your body isn't as sensitive to the allergen.
Additionally, homeopaths will usually give you other remedies to constitutionally strengthen your immune system so that over time, your body will no longer react to a substance.
