Homeopathy as a natural remedy for allergy relief

What are allergies?

Allergies are nothing but a reaction of a hypersensitive immune system. It’s the body reacting to seemingly harmless substances in the environment.

What actually happens with allergies?

When you suffer from an allergy, the body produces an exaggerated amount of certain substances known as histamines. These histamines can produce a variety of symptoms that can make the person not just uncomfortable but sometimes may be dangerous too.

What are the symptoms of allergies?

Most sufferers know these too well. The most common symptoms include itching, rash, redness, swollen eyes, dry mouth, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.

How does Homeopathy help to tackle allergies?

Homoeopathy is a gentle system of medicine that helps tackle allergies by working at the level of the immune system by helping desensitize the patient to the allergens. It achieves this by stimulating the body’s vitality by something known as a “constitutional medicine” which is a remedy that is individually chosen to the totality of symptoms that the person is experiencing, not just the allergy symptoms. Finding a person’s constitutional medicine requires the care of professional homeopath.

Dr. David Taylor-Reilly, a professor and homeopath at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, published an important study in the Lancet (October 18, 1986) which showed that homeopathically prepared doses of 12 common flowers were very effective in reducing hay fever symptoms when compared with patients given a placebo.

This same researcher published in the Lancet (12-10-94) another high caliber study on the homeopathic treatment of asthma. This double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial performed conventional allergy testing to determine what substance asthma sufferers were most allergic. Then, half of the subjects were given a homeopathic preparation of this substance, while the other half were given a placebo. Those people given the homeopathic medicine experienced a very significant improvement in their symptoms of asthma.
