ALLERGY DISEASE AND HOMEOPATHY TREATMENT

Information about Allergy Disease And Homeopathy Treatment

OVERVIEW OF ALLERGY DISEASE

Many of us have suffered from allergies at one time in our life, and usually the best treatment offered was symptomatic relief through avoidance of the allergen or through medication. Homeopathy, on the other hand, addresses the cause of the sensitivity to allergens at the deepest possible level; avoiding the allergen (the substance responsible for the allergic response) or resorting to suppression of symptoms through ongoing symptomatic treatment becomes unnecessary once this sensitivity has been eliminated.

In this article I begin with (1) a short overview of allergies, followed by (2) discussion of the conventional approach, (3) the homeopathy diagnostic approach and (4) the homeopathy treatment approach for allergies.

The many types of allergy
There are many common substances to which people may develop an allergic response, including:
  • Foods such as wheat (gluten), milk and dairy, seafood (shellfish), alcohol, soy, eggs, peanuts, and certain vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants).
  • Common environmental factors such as dust, pollen, mold, animal fur (from dogs, cats, or other pets), dust mites, and sunlight.
  • Various natural or synthetic substances such as latex, nickel, pesticides, medications (penicillin, sulfa drugs, and many more), venom from relatively harmless animal stings (bees, wasps). Symptoms of allergy manifest at the interface between the external world and internal environment: on the skin and in mucus membranes of the respiratory tract, the digestive tract, and the eyes. The inflammation that results causes the various allergy symptoms that many of us are familiar with from personal experience or through someone we know.
It should be noted that some of the above substances may cause trouble to many otherwise healthy people. If this is the case and the substance is synthetic or strongly modified from its natural form (medications, commerical wheat, genetically modified soy, etc.) then it may indeed be the substance rather than personal sensitivity that should be viewed as the true cause, and avoidance may well be the most appropriate solution in such cases.

Indeed, there are many substances encountered in modern life to which we are not physiologically adapted. These are a frequent cause of intolerance symptoms such as mental fogginess, tiredness, poor digestion, skin rashes, and diarrhea. Intolerance should be distinguished from allergy by its lesser specificity and intensity of symptoms, and the term may also refer to certain hereditary conditions in which the body is unable to handle specific food components or environmental conditions for reasons that have nothing to do with the immune system. From the therapeutic point of view intolerance (except of the hereditary type) is approached similarly to allergy, although frequently with more emphasis on avoidance.

In addition, some forms of asthma are allergic in nature, seasonal allergies are frequently referred to as hay fever, and a skin allergy usually manifests itself as hives. Whatever the exact terminology applied, the goal of homeopathic allergy treatment is the strengthening of the organism at its spiritual core, leading to increased resilience of the organism. A resilient person is able to withstand a wide variety of environments by responding appropriately to each situation without suffering chronic ill effects.

The conventional approach to allergy
The conventional approach to allergy incorporates the strategy of environmental control, whereby the patient avoids exposure to the allergen as much as possible. In contrast, from the homeopathic perspective the identity of the allergen is not nearly as important as each individual’s specific pattern of response to it, both at the physical and at the psychological level.

The former approach is effective in principle but has two limitations. First, avoiding the allergen completely may be difficult in highly sensitive individuals for whom even trace amounts of allergen produce a full-blown, or even life-threatening, allergic response.

Second, the avoidance approach doesn’t address the true cause of the allergy, which is not the allergen but the person’s sensitivity to it. Avoidance can eliminate symptoms but it doesn’t amount to true healing, at least not by the stringent homeopathic standards: health is freedom in facing external challenges with few limitations, whereas avoidance restricts the individual’s freedom.

There are two classes of medication generally in use for the symptomatic control of allergies: antihistamines and corticosteroids. Of these, corticosteroids are the more disruptive because they paralyze the immune system at its root, whereas antihistamines interrupt the allergic response without fundamentally altering immune function.

A second-line approach to more severe allergies is immunotherapy (‘allergy shots’), which involves regular injections of small amounts of the relevant allergen(s) over a long period (several months to several years); this leads to a gradual desensitization of the body to them. This approach happens to be based on a simplified version of the homeopathic principle called isopathy, and because of this it does not disrupt homeopathic treatment (beyond making it difficult to determine which of the two treatments should be credited with the improvement). This approach is suitable for many, but falls short of the more global therapeutic improvement attainable through the homeopathic approach.

WHAT IS ALLERGIES?

Allergies are inappropriate or exaggerated reactions of the immune system to substances that, in the majority of people, cause no symptoms. Symptoms of allergic diseases may be caused by exposure of the skin to a chemical, of the respiratory system to particles of dust or pollen (or other substances), or of the stomach and intestines to a particular food.

The allergic symptoms and their severity vary depending on the type of allergen, the part of the body that is affected, and the level of sensitivity and reaction of the individual to the allergen, for example, Asthma, Bronchitis, Cyanosis, Fever, Hay fever, Hives, nausea, Vomiting, and Wheezing. Nasal allergies manifest like the common cold or sinusitis, food allergies produce nausea, vomiting and skin irritation manifests as hives.

LOW IMMUNITY: Normally, the immune system protects an individual against invading agents such as bacteria and viruses. If an individual has allergies, otherwise harmless allergens can cause his body to react as if they were dangerous invaders. In effect, the immune system is responding to a false alarm.

The immune system thinks it is protecting the individual by generating large amounts of a type of antibody specific to the particular allergen to which he is allergic. This antibody attaches itself to certain cells in his body. The next time he comes into contact with the allergen, the allergen attaches to the antibody like a key fitting into a lock. This lock-up causes the release of inflammatory substances into the system. These substances, including histamine, move into various parts of the body, such as the respiratory system, to cause allergy symptoms like runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing, among others.

Exposure to allergens when the body's defenses are weakened (such as after a viral infection, during puberty, or during pregnancy) may contribute to the development of allergies. People with year-round allergies are more likely to have developed them as adults. Women are more likely to have year-round allergies. Allergy symptoms can lessen as you get older, but they rarely completely disappear.

TYPE OF FOOD ALLERGIES

Food allergy or food intolerance affects nearly everyone at some point. When people have an unpleasant reaction to something they ate, they often think that they have an allergy to the food. One out of three people say that some member of their family has an allergy to food that has necessitated a change in their diet. Actually, however, only about 1% of adults and 3% of children have clinically proven allergic reactions to food.
Read More
Mood intolerance is also an abnormal response to food, and its symptoms can resemble those of food allergy. Food intolerance, however, is far more prevalent, manifests itself in a variety of diseases, and is triggered by several different mechanisms that are distinct from the immunological reaction responsible for food allergy.

A. Some facts on food allergies:
  • All symptoms of a food allergy occur within a few minutes to an hour of eating.
  • A food allergy can initially be experienced as an itching in the mouth and difficulty swallowing and breathing.
  • During digestion of the food in the stomach and intestines, symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain can start. (Incidentally, gastrointestinal symptoms are those that are most often confused with the symptoms of different types of food intolerance.)
  • When the allergens reach the skin, they can induce hives or eczema, and when they reach the lungs, they can cause asthma.
  • As the allergens travel through the blood vessels, they can cause light headedness, weakness, and anaphylaxis, which is a sudden drop in blood pressure. Anaphylactic reactions are severe even when they start off with mild symptoms, such as a tingling in the mouth and throat or discomfort in the abdomen. They can be fatal if not treated quickly.

B. Foods that cause allergies:
There are eight types of foods that are accountable for 90% of all food-allergic reactions. The foods that most commonly cause anaphylaxis (called allergenic foods) are:
  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc.)
  • Shellfish
  • Fish
  • Milk
  • Soy
  • Wheat
  • Eggs

C. Food Allergy Symptoms:
Symptoms of food allergies can range from mildly irritating to life threatening. The most common symptoms of food allergies are:
  • Hives
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Swelling of the throat, lips, or tongue
  • Difficulty in breathing or swallowing
  • Metallic taste or itching in the mouth
  • Generalized flushing, itching, or redness of the skin (hives)
  • Nausea
  • Increased heart rate
  • Plunging blood pressure (and accompanying paleness)
  • Sudden feeling of weakness
  • Anxiety or an overwhelming sense of doom
  • Collapse
  • Loss of consciousness

ALLOPATHIC ALLERGIC MEDICINE

The most common medications that cause allergic reactions (called allergenic medications) are:
Read More
  • Penicillin
  • Sulfa antibiotics
  • Allopurinol
  • Seizure and anti-arrhythmia medications
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS, such as aspirin and ibuprofen)
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Certain post-surgery fluids

Common allergic symptoms due to Allergenic medications:
  • Itching
  • Hives
  • Swelling of the throat
  • Asthma
  • A drop in blood pressure
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Death

INSECT BITE ALLERGIES

he insects most commonly associated with triggering severe allergic reactions belong to the Hymenoptera order of insects.
Read More
  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Yellow jackets
  • Hornets
  • Ants, especially the fire ant

Inset Bite Symptoms include:
  • Itching and hives over much of the body;
  • Swelling in the throat or tongue;
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing;
  • Dizziness, severe headache;
  • Stomach cramps, nausea, or diarrhea;
  • Rapid fall in blood pressure;
  • Shock and loss of consciousness.
Avoidance: Avoidance is a key element in guarding against severe allergic reactions to insect stings. Simple steps that people can take to avoid attracting or provoking stinging insects when outdoors include:
  • Avoiding brightly colored clothing or sweet-smelling cosmetics and shampoos ;
  • Keeping food and garbage covered;
  • Wearing shoes to guard against stepping on insects;
  • Keeping arms and legs covered during activities (such as gardening or hiking) that may expose you to stinging insects;
  • Refraining from swatting or crushing insects;
  • Steering clear of areas where insects have nested; Itchy rashes, hives;
  • Nasal congestion (rhinitis);
  • Swelling, especially around the nose, mouth, and throat;
  • Eye irritation or conjunctivitis; and
  • Respiratory problems, including asthma and rhino conjunctivitis.

LATE ALLERGIES

When people are exposed to any products made from latex they will develop allergic symptoms. The most common latex products we see are:
Read More
  • Latex Car tires
  • Rubber bands
  • Elastic
  • Carpet backing
  • Hospital and dental equipment

Dipped latex products are the biggest culprits in triggering allergic reactions. These include:
  • Rubber (latex) gloves
  • Balloons
  • Condoms

Symptoms of allergic reactions to latex:
swelling, especially around the nose, mouth, and throat
  • Dermatitis: Irritant-contact dermatitis, manifested as raw, inflamed, even blistered skin
  • Itchy rashes, hives
  • Nasal congestion (rhinitis), manifested as
  • Eye irritation or conjunctivitis
  • Respiratory problems, including asthma and rhino conjunctivitis

Avoidance: Avoidance is crucial in guarding against further sensitization and severe allergic reactions to latex. People who exhibit allergic symptoms after contact with latex should use latex-free versions of latex products in their homes and workplaces and should alert their health care providers that they need to be treated with latex-free equipment.

ANAPHYLAXIS SHOCK

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that occurs in response to a particular trigger. The most commonly documented causes of anaphylaxis are:
Read More
  • Food
  • Medications
  • Insect venom
  • Latex
  • Exercise

Exercise induced Anaphylaxis: People who develop exercise-induced Anaphylaxis show the following after doing some strenuous exercise - symptoms like fatigue, diffuse warmth, skin itching, skin redness, hives. These symptoms may later may progress to gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting), swelling of the throat, loss of consciousness.

Idiopathic Anaphylaxis: Idiopathic anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction that occurs in the absence of any known allergen. In simpler terms, nobody really knows what causes idiopathic anaphylaxis. The symptoms of idiopathic anaphylaxis are the same as for other forms of anaphylaxis, with the main symptoms being:
  • Itching
  • Hives
  • Swelling of the throat
  • A drop in blood pressure
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Loss of consciousness

ALLERGIC FOR EYE

Allergy-causing substances like pollen and dander may cause dilatation of blood vessels in the conjunctiva, the membrane covering the eye. The resulting reddening of the eyes is called allergic conjunctivitis, and is usually accompanied by itching and tearing.
Read More
The allergen causes certain cells in the eye (called mast cells) to release histamine and other substances or chemicals that cause blood vessels in the eyes to swell, and the eyes to become itchy, red and watery.

HAY FEVER

Hay fever, asthma and eczema are all related allergic conditions and the tendency to develop them runs in families. People with hay fever often have a close relative with one or more of these conditions. When someone with hay fever comes into contact with pollen, their body produces increased amounts of immunoglobulin E (IgE), a type of antibody. This IgE sticks to certain cells throughout the body, including those of the respiratory (breathing) system, causing them to release the chemical histamine. It is histamine that is responsible for the symptoms of sneezing, stuffy nose and itchy eyes and throat. Most people suffer only a few weeks of mild discomfort, but for an unlucky few, the symptoms can be severe and last for months. Hay fever can make asthma worse, and some people who are not usually asthmatic may become wheezy. Most people with hay fever are allergic to grass and oilseed rape pollens, which appear from April to August each year. People who are sensitive to pollen from hazel, yew, elm and alder may develop symptoms from January to April, and people allergic to nettles and other weeds can be affected from April to mid-September.

ALLERGIC ASTHAMA OR ALLERGIC RINITIS

  • If We Separate The Word Allergy and Rhinitis We Can Understand It Better.
  • E Body To Foreign Substance And Rhinitis Mean Inflammation Of Nasal Mucosa. (‘Rhino’ I.e. Nose & ‘Itis’ I.e. Inflammation.)

Read More
ALLERGIC RINITIS:
  • In Simple Language Allergic Rhinitis means Inflammation Of Mucus Lining Of Nasal Passage When It Is Sensitive It Is Also Known As Hay Fever but It Is A Misnomer As There Is Usually No Fever In It.
  • It Is Usually Associated With Watery Nasal Discharge And Itching Of Nose And Eyes With Sneezing.

CAUSE:
  • Allergy Can Be Hereditary. Why Allergy Occurs To An Individual Is Not Known.
  • The Causative Factors Which Are Responsible For The Allergic Rhinitis Are As Below…
    • Pollens
    • Dust Mites
    • Trees (deciduous And Evergreen)
    • Grasses
    • Ragweed
    • Animal Dander
    • Cereal Grain
    • Wood Dust
    • Chemicals Etc.
  • Allergy Is An Oversensitive Reaction Of Immune System Towards Foreign Substances Which Although Harmless To Normal Individual.
  • When Person Is Allergic To Any Substance And He Breathes In That Particular Substance, His Body Over-reacts To It And Produces Antibodies Against It.
  • In Case Of Allergic Rhinitis It Represents By Itching & Swelling Of Nasal Mucosa, Runny Nose, Irritation Of Eyes, Watering Of Eyes, Chronic Cough- Secondary To Post Nasal Drip And Headache, Etc.
  • Allergic Person May Have Other Disorders Like Skin Complains-urticaria, Eczema Or In The Form Of Gastric Disturbances Also.
  • Homoeopathic Medicines Are Acting On The Basis Of Individualization Of The Patient And Not Merely On The Diagnosis Of The Disease.
  • It Stimulates The Inner Power Of The Body And Ultimately Helps The Body To Cop Up With The Allergic Condition.
  • Some Of The Medicines Like Blatta Ori, Aspidosperma, Ars Iod, Ars Alb, Phos, Sulph, Etc. Are Used In Allergic Condition On The Base Of Patient’s Constitution And His Detailed History.

What Preventive Measures Should One Take?
  • Always It Is Better To Prevent The Disease Rather To Treat It.
  • To Prevent Allergy In Oneself Is Not Possible As It May Relate To His Heredity Or Genetics.
  • One Can Take Precautionary Steps To Prevent The Frequent Attacks. They Are……
  • Remain Indoors When Pollen Level Is Higher Outside.
  • If Possible Let The Air Conditioner On And Close All The Windows.
  • If You Can’t Prevent To Go Outsides You Must Wear A Face Mask Which Can Filter Pollens. If You Don’t Have It, In Emergency You Can Prepare A Humidifier Mask By Wetting Your Hanky In Water And Wear It As A Face Mask.
  • Wash Your Face, Hands And Feet Whenever You Return From Out Side So That Even If Pollens Stick To Your Body Part There Will Be Less Chance To Be Affected By Them.
  • People Who Are Sensitive To Dust Should Take Care To Make Daily Using Things Like Carpet, Mattresses, Pillows Etc Dust Free.

Can It Cause Any Complication?
The Disease Itself Can Cause Following Other Problems If Not Treated Or Controlled In Right Time. They Are….

SINUSITIS:
Nastypel Polypsyou have symptoms of hay fever but you have them after the hay fever season is over, they are likely to be due to an allergen that is present throughout the year. The predominant symptoms are blocked or runny nose and sneezing, hence the name allergic rhinitis. House-dust mite is a common cause of allergic rhinitis, but there are others, including allergens from animals such as cats, dogs, and horses. Certain foods, drugs and chemicals can also be involve.

SEASONAL ALLEGIES:
People with seasonal allergies face different challenges depending on the time of year. For many who are allergic to grass or tree pollens, spring can bring sneezing, itching and runny nose and red or teary eyes of allergy symptoms. Summer brings grass pollen and ragweed. By fall, ragweed may still be in the air in some areas, and as the season goes on, autumn leaves fall and produce a terrific crop of molds where they lie on the ground. Neighbors may burn piles of leaves, creating smoke, fumes, and airborne mold spores. In winter, for the families staying cozy inside, allergens such as dust mites and pet dander are indoors with them and cause allergic reactions.

EXERCISE-INDUSED FOOD ALLERGY:
Exercise can induce an allergic reaction to food. The usual scenario is that of a person eating a specific food, and then exercising. As he exercises and his body temperature increases, he begins to itch, gets light headed, and soon develops the characteristic allergic reactions of hives, asthma, abdominal symptoms, and even anaphylaxis. The cure, actually a preventive measure, for exercise-induced food allergy is simple-not eating for at least two hours before exercising.

WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE ALLERGIC & OTHERS NOT:
It may be all in the family. People seem to inherit the tendency to be allergic, although not to any specific allergen. If you’re not sure if you have allergies, here are two points to keep in mind:
  • Do your parents have allergies? If both your parents have allergies, you have a 60-80% chance of developing them too. If one of your parents has allergies, you have a 30-50% chance of developing allergies.
  • Does your child have allergies? As noted above, allergies can be passed from parent to child. If you know your child has allergies, it may be an indication that you have allergies too.

SINUSITIS & ALLERGIES:
Sinusitis is caused by a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection. Allergies can cause the nasal passages to swell. When this happens, mucus can’t drain properly from the nasal passages, so it may accumulate in the sinuses (cavities behind the cheekbones). These mucus pools provide an excellent place for bacteria to grow—all of which can lead to sinusitis. Symptoms of sinusitis may include:
  • Headaches (you may feel as if your face hurts).
  • Yellow or greenish mucus
  • Nasal congestion
  • Fever

SEASONAL ALLERGIES

But, very few people with allergies have to contend with every possible allergy trigger throughout the year. The majority of allergy sufferers need to avoid only a limited number of specific allergens for only a few weeks each year. They may be free of allergy symptoms for the rest of the calendar year.

If you have perennial rhinitis you may have a stuffy nose all year round. In general, people with perennial rhinitis are less likely to sneeze and have eye symptoms but are more likely to complain of nasal congestion. Perennial allergic rhinitis is usually associated with exposure to indoor allergens such as dust mites. Some people with allergies have perennial rhinitis as well as seasonal rhinitis, so they experience seasonal symptoms (such as sneezing, watering eyes, itching, and running nose) in addition to the seemingly ever-present congestion.

EXERISE, YOGA AND BREATHING OR PRANAYAM INDUCED ALLERGY

Exercise can induce an allergic reaction to food. The usual scenario is that of a person eating a specific food, and then exercising. As he exercises and his body temperature increases, he begins to itch, gets light headed, and soon develops the characteristic allergic reactions of hives, asthma, abdominal symptoms, and even anaphylaxis. The cure, actually a preventive measure, for exercise-induced food allergy is simple-not eating for at least two hours before exercising.

PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID ALLERGIES

Stay indoors as much as possible when pollen counts are at their peak, usually during the mid-morning and early evening, and when wind is blowing pollens around.
Read More
  • Keep windows closed and use air conditioning in your car and home. Air conditioning units should be kept clean. Avoid using window fans that can draw pollens and molds into the house.
  • Wear glasses or sunglasses when outdoors to minimize pollen getting into your eyes.
  • Avoid rubbing eyes, which will only irritate them or make your condition worse.
  • Clean floors with a damp rag or mop rather than dry dusting or sweeping.
  • Wash your hands immediately after petting any animals. Remove and wash clothing after visiting friends with pets.
  • Keep pets out of the bedroom to limit exposure to pet dander while sleeping.
  • Reduce indoor molds caused by high humidity by cleaning bathrooms, kitchens and basements regularly. A dehumidifier can be used to reduce molds, especially in damp, humid places like basements. Make sure the dehumidifier is cleaned often. To clean moldy areas in the home, use a 1-to-10 parts diluted mixture of chlorine bleach and water.
  • Install a filter over bedroom air vents to prevent pet dander, dust, and molds from being blown in from other parts of the house through heating or air-conditioning ducts.
  • Use window shades or curtains that can be laundered or cleaned frequently, instead of heavy drapes.
  • Don’t hang sheets or clothing outdoors to dry, as pollens and molds can collect on them.
  • Wash bed linens in hot water (at least 130° Fahrenheit) and use your dryer's hottest setting to kill mites and control animal allergens.
  • Enclose pillows, mattresses, and box springs in zippered, air-tight casings to curtail mite activity.
  • Do not use a feather- or down-filled pillow.
  • Keep dust from accumulating by vacuuming floors and cleaning surfaces weekly.
  • Keep small knickknacks, books, and CDs inside cabinets or drawers so that they don't collect dust.
  • Replace synthetic pillows every 2 to 3 years.

INFENTS AND CHILDREN FOOD ALLERGIES: The Answer is Yes: Allergies to milk or soy formula can occur in infants and young children. These early allergies sometimes do not involve the usual hives or asthma, but rather can cause infantile colic, and perhaps blood in the stool or poor growth.

ALLERGIES ASTHMA

natural immunity and remove allegy and being normal child with out steroid medicine and injectable medicine.When a person has an asthma attack, the inflemmation in the respiratory system makes breathing difficult. Homeopathic treatments usually involve giving the body a miniscule amount of the substance causing the reaction to help the body learn how to cope. Once a homeopath finds the right treatment, patients can find relief. Because treatments are extremely individualized, clinical research in homeopathy is difficult; the same remedy is not the correct remedy for every case of a disease. Homeopathic treatment, however, can be taken in conjunction with prescribed drugs, providing a safe, alternative method for people to cope with asthma.
Read More
The goal of homeopathic treatment for asthma is to identify the root cause for the attacks, and then to use the bodies own healing processes to transform the triggers into remedies. Asthma is viewed differently in each person, because each person is afflicted in a different way. Factors considered by the homeopath include frequency of attacks, possible allergens and other symptoms. The health of the whole body, not just the respiratory system, is addressed. Ultimately, homeopathy might create a cure for the asthma by strengthening and balancing the immune system.

HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH

The homeopathic treatment of allergies begins with the physical symptoms but doesn’t end there. Important clues to the homeopathic pattern and prescription can be found in:
Read More
  • life circumstances around the time of onset of the allergy symptoms;
  • situations which cause an exacerbation of the allergy symptoms;
  • situations which lead to a relief from allergy symptoms;
  • feelings aroused by the allergy symptoms, or the person’s unique experience of the condition;
how the allergy symptoms disrupt normal living, or what the person is thereby prevented from doing. Again, it is important to understand that the specific allergy symptoms are not in themselves a disease but merely represent the underlying spiritual imbalance that is the root of all disease. Whether a person will develop allergies, skin problems, joint problems, or organ problems is largely dependent on hereditary factors as well as on the degree of suppression of symptoms from past medical treatment.

In the case of severe allergies and asthma it is important never to reduce or discontinue the use of medications until the allergic tendency has clearly and permanently been eliminated, and even then always in consultation with the treating physician. Likewise it is important to maintain access to emergency facilities in case of a dangerous exacerbation throughout treatment, and to continue carrying antihistamines, inhalers, an EpiPen adrenaline injector, etc. whenever away from home for use in case of a severe reaction.

The rationale behind the homeopathic approach to allergies
What is the advantage of comprehensive allergy treatment with homeopathy over other natural approaches?
On the one hand clean diets such as the raw food diet I discussed recently have many beneficial effects. For example, many people do better without wheat: they typically feel more clear-headed than otherwise, among other subtle benefits. So even people who do not complain of any symptoms indicative of allergy or intolerance might do well to avoid certain foods, and likewise to breath fresher air, drink cleaner water, and so on.

Allergies are caused by an over reaction of the immune system to inert substances, but not by histamine. Suppressing symptoms by taking Anti-Histamine is not a cure. Treatment should be focused on the hypersensitivity of the immune system. Each allergic person responds to allergens in different ways which can result in hey fever, conjunctivitis, hives, sneezing, watery eyes and itching. Besides the allergies mentioned earlier, there are other types of allergies called "Idiopathic allergies". Idiopathic allergies are where there are no known allergic substances or allergens. Classical Homeopath takes into consideration all the factors like type of allergens, symptoms and seasons the patient is suffering in for the treatment. Homeopathy addresses the hyper-sensitivity towards nontoxic substances in the treatment to cure allergies rather than blaming histamine. Ipcanum, Ars alb, Kali bich, pulsetilla, Some other common homeopathic medicines for treating allegic medicine include Belladona, antim crudum, Kali sulf, sulphur, Apis, Arnica , ignatia, hepar-sulph and tuberculinum. many more treat and permanent cure allergic asthma. And its develop grassroots immunity to person.

A. Pulsetila Homeopathy medicine : works well if symptoms are spasmodic; the patient feels a lot of weight and anxiety about the chest; there is sudden wheezing, difficulty breathing, and a feeling of suffocation, which is made worse if the patient moves or is warmed; and the cough creates retching and vomiting. Ipecac might be called for when the cough is continuous and the chest seems full of phlegm, yet nothing is coughed up. The extremities are covered with cold sweat.

B. ipecanum Homeopathy medicine : is similar to Arsenic alb., and is especially useful if the disease is chronic, the patient is older and the labored breathing is habitual and dry. It is used when the attacks occur between midnight and 2 a.m. The patient’s dry wheezing may progress to a cough that brings up frothy, whitish fluid. He or she feels exhausted yet experiences a lot of anguish and restlessness, fearing suffocation if he or she lies down. There is a general sweat, and the person can be thirsty, taking frequent, tiny sips. If the patient falls asleep again, he or she is awakened with soreness and burning pain in the chest and heat in the head. Warmth often brings improvement. Arsenicum follows Ipecac well, and is especially useful in those who are anemic.

C. Carbo vegitable Homeopathy medicine : is helpful when symptoms include a tense, constricted feeling in the lower part of the chest, with pressure in the stomach. The patient finds some relief by belching, and the patient must loosen his or her clothing. Problems are often worse in the morning. It might be useful when gastric disturbances bring on the asthmatic attacks, and during simple spasmodic asthmas. Both mental exertion and physical effort can make symptoms worse, while warmth and sleep often bring relief. Overindulgence in sweets, spicy food, stimulants and alcohol are common. If there is a lot of abdominal irritation and much flatulence, Nux vomica might be combined with Lycopodium and Carbo vegetabilis.

D. Kali bic Homeopathy medicine : might help patients who experience attacks at about 3 or 4 a.m., with a feeling as if there were no air in the chest. The patient feels compelled to sit up to breathe, and bending forward while sitting brings some relief. The patient coughs up stringy yellow mucus.

E. Natrum mur Homeopathy medicine : treats general symptoms including a worsening of asthma when exposed to mold and dampness; attacks occur at about 4 to 5 a.m.; and the patient sits up and holds the chest with the hands while coughing. Wheezing and breathing difficulties are aggravated by exertion. The patient usually also has loose bowels after each attack.

F. Antimonium tartaricum Homeopathy Medicine : A remedy used by conventional medicine for asthma, can also be used as a homoeopathic treatment for certain symptoms. The keynote for using this option is the presence of fine rattling or crackling sounds in the chest. The chest also seems full of phlegm that the patient cannot cough up. The patient must sit up at about 3 a.m., has great difficulty breathing, and feels suffocated. Antimonium tartaricum is especially suited to young children and the elderly.

G. Spongia tosta Homeopathy medicine : is strongly indicated by a barking cough during an asthma attack. Labored breathing has a sawing sound and little mucus is produced. The person may feel best when leaning forward or when sitting up and tilting the head back. Warm drinks may be helpful. The problems usually begin before midnight while the person is asleep. Asthma is a disease in which the airways become narrowed and excess mucus is produced in the lungs. The symptoms Asthma include: coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath.

HOMEOPATHY DOSAGE DIRECTIONS
Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used.
