Homeopathy for Hay Fever and Allergies

Hay Fever and Homeopathy


We’re at the beginning of April and a lot of trees are starting to flower. Daffodils are out, tulips and lots of other flowers too, and the trees are blooming.

It looks fantastic out there, but truth be told, if you are a hay fever sufferer, you will not be happy about it.

So, what exactly is hay fever?

Hay fever is an allergic response to pollen or other allergens. The most known symptoms are sneezing, runny nose and streaming eyes.

Hay fever can be seasonal – occurring in spring and summer mostly, and caused by pollens from trees, grasses, and weeds.

Perennial hay fever occurs when people display symptoms all year around, cause by allergens like dust mites, pet hair or dander, or mold/mildew for example.

What can you do to support yourself during the time of seasonal hay fever?

·       try and keep windows closed on days with high pollen count and use air con in house and car if possible.

·       Wear glasses/sunglasses that wrap around to protect your eyes.

·       Shower or wash hair when coming in from outdoors.


What can you do to support yourself during the time of perennial hay fever?

·       Using “mite-proof” bedding covers to limit exposure to dust mites.

·       Dehumidifier to control mold/mildew

·       Wash hands after petting pets/animals.

·       Limit exposure to allergens if possible.


Symptoms of Hay Fever

·       Runny, itchy nose

·       Itchy eyes, mouth, or skin

·       Sneezing

·       Stuffed nose due to blockage or congestion

·       Fatigue (often reported due to poor quality sleep because of nasal obstruction)



Next time you have hay fever, try homeopathy.

Before you take antihistamines, try the below remedies. Homeopathy can effectively ease hay fever symptoms so much that many people who try it rarely reach for conventional medications again.

If the symptoms are intense, take the remedy that fits your symptoms best in a 30c potency 3 times a day.

Once you get relief, stop the remedy, and repeat it only when symptoms return. For more information on potency and dosage, please read here.

For now I'm going to go into my garden and enjoy hands in dirt for a while, it's so grounding. I just love spring. I leave you with a quote I found: 

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.
