Hay Fever - Homeopathy Treatment
Works at level of immunity: Homeopathic remedies work at the level of immunity and as hay fever is caused due to an exaggerated immune response to certain allergens, it is most suitable to treat hay fever. Homeopathy targets the body’s immune system whereby it reduces the hypersensitivity to the allergens that produce hay fever symptoms. Over a period of time, patient reacts less aggressively to the allergens and gradually the hypersensitivity decreases.
It must be noted that even during the period of treatment, patient may continue to get allergic attacks; however these episodes are less severe and last shorter as compared to before.
No side-effects: Patients gradually notice an overall improvement in the general health as the treatment progresses. Even in chronic cases of a long standing nature, homeopathy offers significant help in treating and managing symptoms without side-effects such as drowsiness which accompany most medications.
Individualised medicine: Moreover, homeopathy offers individualised treatment to every patient. Every patient experiences allergy in a different way. For example, nasal discharges may be either burning or itching. Some people also experience unbearable itching in the ears, throat, eyes or combination of any of these. Rather than suppressing these symptoms, a homeopath selects a medicine that is matched to the symptom or allergy picture of the patient.
