It’s that time of year again, spring has sprung! Our grass and trees are awaking from their winter slumber and the tulips are blooming. Unfortunately this is when 25% of our community suffers with allergic rhinitis, otherwise known as hay fever. They experience a runny nose, congestion, sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure, but not from a virus; hay fever is caused by an allergic response to outdoor or indoor allergens such as pollen, dust mites or pet dander. The trend tends to be that once you develop allergies, the symptoms reappear year after year unless the problem is addressed. This happens because allergies are actually a chronic issue that will get worse over time. Pharmaceutical anti-histamines can give relief, but they do have side effects that can include bad breath, fatigue, drowsiness, upset stomach, high blood pressure, headaches, dry mouth, difficulty concentrating, blurred vision, dizziness and constipation. Homeopathy can help with your hay fever symptoms this spring, summer or fall without the side effects. A well-chosen homeopathic medicine based on your individual allergic response can greatly reduce your symptoms this season. Below are a few of the more common homeopathic medicines you can try for yourself. If none of these fit your symptoms, or you experience chronic allergies every year, then it may be time to visit a qualified homeopath for an appointment. Purchase these homeopathic medicines in a 30c potency and take as needed. Some days you may not need a dose, other days you may need 3 or 4 doses. A dose is usually 2 pellets, dissolved in the mouth away from food and drink. The earlier you take the medicine in the season the quicker you will get a handle on your allergic response.
