Spring has sprung, the flowers are in bloom, the grass is growing, and if you have seasonal allergies – you just added tissues to your weekly shopping list. There are plenty of medications that have been designed to help with the symptoms that seasonal allergies bring, however, it is possible to treat them without clouding yourself with medications.
The first way to bring relief from seasonal allergies is try homeopathic health. Working with a homeopathic allergist, options for treating seasonal allergies include taking a homeopathic dosage of the allergen (30C) at the onset of symptoms to build a tolerance. For example, if one of your triggers is grass, you would incorporate the proper dosage of the chemical component of grass to essentially build a physical tolerance to the reaction that is normally caused by it. Other ways to use homeopathy for seasonal allergies such as hay fever is to utilize Galphimia glauca 3X, 4X, 4C, or 6C. Essentially, adding these homeopathic treatments are going to help your body become accustomed to the triggers for Hay fever and subsequently eliminate the symptoms.
Another way to find relief from seasonal allergies is a more natural approach. Treatments such as honey have long been utilized to help treat allergies. The theory is that bees consume pollen; often times the pollen that triggers seasonal allergies. When we use locally produced honey, we in turn consume honey produced with the same pollen allergens that often cause allergy symptoms. In theory, we ingest a homeopathic dosage of the allergens by eating the local honey. It’s like a mini allergy shot with no side effects.
With these options, it is possible to have relief from seasonal allergies without the side effects associated with common allergy medications. With a homeopathic allergist and some local honey, seasonal allergies could become a thing of the past, allowing you to smell the roses.
