Treating the Root Cause…

grass with rootsAn estimated 20 to 25% of Canadians suffer from seasonal allergic rhinitis and hay fever that effect their health and quality of life. Allergic rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal passages leading to discharge, sneezing and/or nasal blockage. The inflammation is caused by exposure to spring and summer pollens (flowers, grasses) and/or fungal spores in autumn. Hay fever is an allergic reaction due to exposure to pollens and spores and effects the ears, nose, eyes and mucous membranes of the mouth, throat. In severe cases, the lungs are affected causing allergic asthma. Depending what the person is sensitive to, allergy symptoms can manifest from early spring and last until the first frost in autumn. That is a lot of months of suffering!

Using Homeopathy to Treat the Root Cause

Treating seasonal allergies homeopathically is attractive for several reasons. First and foremost, homeopathy aims to treat the root cause of any illness and not simply suppress the symptoms of illness. Homeopathic treatment works to bring the immune system into healthy balance as well as to reduce the susceptibility of the individual to allergens. A strong and balanced immune system combined with low susceptibility (high tolerance) for allergens (and antigens) is a solid basis for lasting, natural good health.

“Individualization is a cornerstone of Homeopathy”

Homeopathic treatment is highly individualized as we all experience illness, allergies included, in our own unique way. For some, non-stop sneezing might be the main symptom while others may find itching – in the throat, palate, ears, eyes and/or skin to be the main manifestation. Individualization is a cornerstone of Homeopathy and a necessary requirement if illness is to be treated at the root level.

Homeopathic remedies are safe and free of side effects such as drowsiness and impaired ability to focus. In addition, they can be used alongside conventional medicines. They are particularly well suited to people that are highly sensitive to conventional medicines.

Homeopathy is Effective!

Last but not least, Homeopathy works! A 2011, Swiss government reported that there is a strong body of evidence to support homeopathic treatment of upper respiratory tract infections and respiratory allergies. Particularly noteworthy is the finding that six out of seven controlled studies that compared homeopathic treatment with conventional medical treatment showed homeopathy to be more effective than conventional medical interventions.
