Do allergies affect your quality of life?
In 2014-15, over 19% of Australians reported suffering with hayfever and allergic rhinitis.1 The impact of these allergies often also affect the sufferers on a mental and emotional level, making even a day in the outdoors a misery!
A person with allergies has an abnormal immune response to a substance (allergen) that would not normally cause a problem in those who are allergy free, eg pollen or dust mites.
Homeopathic treatment aims to help the mild allergy sufferer to lessen their sensitivity to these allergens. 2
Allergy related symptoms that can be supported with homeopathic medicine include:
- Hayfever (water, itchy, red eyes, itchy palate, nasal discharge, sneezing)
- Post nasal drip
- Chronic ear infections
The two terms are often used interchangeably but they are two distinct problems! An allergy is an abnormal immune system reaction, whereas an intolerance is a chemical reaction to eating certain foods. Food intolerances are more common than allergies and have been linked to conditions such as tiredness, skin irritation, abdominal discomfort and medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome.
