Allergy & Homeopathy

What is allergy?

  • Allergy is an abnormal reaction or increased sensitivity to certain substances.
  • Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problem in most people.

The reason for allergy -  

  • Since your immune system produces substances known as antibodies, when you have allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn't.
  • The reaction between allergen and antibodies causes the release of substances such as histamine, which produce allergic symptoms in the skin, the nose, the eyes, the chest, etc. 

Allergic diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis

Homeopathic treatment of allergy

  • Homeopathic  remedies naturally shore up your body’s own defenses and help decrease hypersensitivities to allergens by strengthening your immunity over time. Similar to allergy shots, the remedies are formulated to gently introduce the body to minute amounts of the irritants thus training the immune system to avoid over-production of histamine and the accompanying unpleasant symptoms
  • Homeopathic medicines work naturally with your body without bringing on sleepiness or drowsiness. There is no risk of overdose and do NOT interact with other medicines.
  • Homeopathic remedies are safe and gentle to use, can be taken alongside conventional medicine, are suitable for children and are non addictive with no side effects
  • Homeopathy uses natural medicines that help in reducing the intensity, frequency and duration of attacks, increasing disease-free period.
  • Homeopathy not only offers significant relief in acute or recent onset allergies but also long-standing allergies. 

Self-Help

  • Vacuum-clean your mattress, upholstery and soft furnishing, regularly. ‘Hot-wash’ bed-sheets, pillow covers and blankets regularly. This will ensure that dust mite eggs, as well as mites, a common allergy trigger, are destroyed
  • Dust with a dampened cloth, instead of a dry cloth. Dry dusting tends to release dust containing mites and their allergens into the air
  • Boil-wash children's soft toys. Or, bag them and put them in the freezer. Either action will kill dust mites
  • If you find that your pets worsen your condition through exposure to their hair [dander], saliva, or urine, remove pet hair and vacuum-clean the pet area regularly
  • Avoid exposure to common triggers, such as tobacco smoke, aerosol spray, certain perfumes and automobile exhaust
  • Read food labels carefully to avoid food substances that you may be allergic to
  • Follow-up with your homeopathic doctor on a regular basis.
