Homeopathy Help for Hay Fever

Hay fever is a form of allergy affecting the lining of the nose, and often the eyes and throat too.

Did you know, it can be treated successfully with homeopathic remedies - both as an acute picture to alleviate current symptoms and for the underlying chronic condition? In my practice I am delighted to notice that patients undergoing constitutional treatment who usually get hay fever every year have this year either not had any symptoms at all or they are greatly reduced. This is wonderful news and means they don't need to use conventional medicines any more. I had a little look into the side effects of those medications which, according to the NHS, are...

  • sleepiness (drowsiness) and reduced co-ordination, reaction speed and judgement – do not drive or use machinery

  • dry mouth

  • blurred vision

  • difficulty peeing

  • headache

  • dry mouth

  • feeling sick

Homeopathy is safe for everyone and has no side effects! It can also be used alongside any conventional medications you may already be taking.

Are you are suffering and would you like some help? You can book an initial homeopathic consultation with me at If you are an existing patient but not currently receiving treatment, book yourself in for a homeopathy follow up. If you come before 10th June, you will have your treatment half price while I am working under supervision of a qualified homeopath. After that, I will have graduated as a Registered Homeopath and my feels will be higher.

Some essential oils used in Aromatherapy can be used to alleviate hay fever symptoms too. I'll tell you all about those in my next blog.
