Hayfever is an allergic reaction to pollens, dust, and chemicals especially at certain times of the year. There is swelling of the mucous membranes of the nasal passages. Symptoms of Hay Fever may include sneezing, runny nose, burning eyes, exhaustion, mucus discharges and swelling. The pollens that cause Hay Fever vary from person to person. Hayfever tendencies can be hereditary and encouraged by a weak immune system.
Modern medicine treats hay fever with decongestants and anti-histamines that give temporary symptomatic relief and no long-term improvements. While working naturally to reverse the problem, consider using Homeopathic Combinations specific for hay fever symptoms found below.
The goal with Hay Fever from the natural perspective is to calm the immune system and strengthen the adrenals. When the system is weak, allergens can cause an inflammatory response. Use several of the following remedies and remove dairy, tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and sodas.
Enzymes taken on an empty stomach act as an anti-inflammatory.
Vitamin C stabilizes mast cells, which when irritated release histamines.
B Vitamins support the adrenal glands to reduce inflammation
Quercetin on an empty stomach, stabilizes mast cells to reduce the histamine response. Use for 2 – 3 weeks before the allergy season starts.
Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
