Do you dread the hot, lazy, summer months? Desperate to enjoy the sun, but locked up inside for fear of itching eyes, streaming noses, and violent sneezing?
Hay fever is the commonest form of allergy in the UK. It affects up to 20% of the population, around 10 million people. (source Mintel). At its root, it’s an allergy to pollen. Hay is produced from grass, and grass pollen is the most common culprit for producing hay fever symptoms, but tree pollen, flower pollen, and fungal spores (the fungus equivalent of pollen) also produce the same symptoms.
Many people are aware that Homeopathy can help with long term conditions such as allergies, breathing problems and stress. But Homeopathy can also help seasonal or sporadic symptoms too. Hay fever is caused by the pollen from certain plants drifting on the wind. It enters one’s system through the nose and eyes. This stimulates some cells to produce histamines, which then produce the symptoms associated with hay fever.
More and more people in the UK are turning to complementary therapies to help them with their hay fever and allergic symptoms. The advantage of Homeopathy is that it is non invasive, non-addictive and simple to use. It can be used with other medicines and it’s safe to use in pregnancy and for babies and children. Homeopathy is a gentle and effective treatment that does not cause any side effects.
