Do you need a Remedy for Hay Fever now?

Are you suffering with irritating hay fever symptoms like a streaming nose, itchy eyes or sneezing?  Homeopathic remedies can bring rapid relief even in the thick of the hay fever season.

Nathan’s story

This time last year I was treating Nathan for a long-term condition.  His mother asked, almost in passing, whether there was any chance I could help with his hay fever.  Every summer he would end up on a steroid nasal spray but was there something homeopathic he could use instead?

I asked for some more details of Nathan’s symptoms and mood when his hay fever was bad.  I then chose a remedy for him.

A few weeks later his mother reported:

“The hay fever remedies have been amazing.  Everyone is telling me this year is such a bad year for hay fever but he’s fine.  Just amazing.  I never expected it to work so well.” 

Choosing the best homeopathic remedy for your hay fever

For best results, a remedy needs to be matched to your specific hay fever symptoms and take account of anything that makes them better or worse. A homeopath will also consider which remedies are likely to be suited to your personality and health history.  It is common, for example, for hay fever to arise when a person is also prone to eczema or asthma, or where other family members have these conditions, and this too can influence the choice of remedy.

Self help Tips

Alongside a homeopathic prescription, there are also things you can try to ease your symptoms yourself.  Here are a few suggestions:

  • Drink plenty of water.  This will help to replace fluid lost through watering eyes and a runny nose.  This is important as dehydration can make symptoms worse.
  • Reduce your exposure to pollen by keeping windows shut at home and in your car, drying your clothes inside and avoiding contact with pets which have been outdoors.
  • Wear sunglasses to keep pollen out of your eyes.
  • If you have been outside, shower, wash your hair and change your clothes.
  • You may find it helpful to apply calendula ointment around your nostrils to prevent contact with pollen and heal raw skin.
