Hay fever very often starts at puberty, but a significant number of younger children suffer from it too. In the last years, there is also an increase in the number of children and adults suffering from hay fever. This may be due to the fact of the general increase in allergies from environmental pollutants over the last few decades.
Symptoms of hay fever are similar to those of a heavy cold with runny nose, sneezing and watery and itchy eyes. Homeopathy can provide a significant relief for the hay fever sufferer during hay fever season, but the main advantage of Homeopathic treatment is that it can address the tendency, the predisposition of a person to have those symptoms. If hay fever is treated constitutionally during winter months, it will lessen in severity each spring and eventually resolve all together over a few years.
It is desirable for hay fever sufferers to come for the treatment at least twice a year and then during the hay fever season come for the remedies treating acute symptoms.
Many people use the commercial preparations available in health-food shops. I always recommend a Hay fever remedy from Homeopathic Pharmacy “Helios”.
