Homeopathic Remedies for Hayfever


As the wonder of Spring starts to emerge with blossoms and seeds creating a new cycle of life with re-awakenings and renewals abounding among the Flora and Fauna, for some individuals it can be the beginning of torment and suffering. This is commonly known as Hay Fever Season.

Homeopathy has many remedies that can help a sufferer, either by lessening the attacks or decreasing the intensity. The best time to tackle hay fever for a Homeopath is outside the hay fever season. But mostly people come to homeopathy when an attack starts and the over the counter medications have ceased to work. Below are a few remedies that are commonly prescribed for hay fever and like everything else in the homeopathic world it is the peculiarity of the symptoms that enables the choice of remedy.

Remedies can be taken in the 30 potency and be repeated every 15 minutes for an hour if the hayfever attack is severe. Otherwise,take when needed.

Our homeopath, Shauna Wyldeck-Estrada suggests:

Sabadilla; Constant sneezing and profuse lachrymation. Symptoms aggravated in the open air and bright lights. Sore throat going from left to right. Desires hot drinks and is better for them. Sensation of lump in the throat and feels the constant need to swallow.

Alium Cepa: Dull headache. Worse from being inside, better from being in the open air. Profuse lachrymation. Constant rubbing of the eyes that feel as if they are burning. Constant discharge from nose that burns the nose and top lip.

Euphrasia: Thick, burning discharge from eyes. Eyes are very red and swollen. Bland, constant discharge from the nose. Mucous in the throat. Worse in the evening. Worse inside.

Nuxvomica: Eyes burning. Eyes very sensitive to light. Itching at the back of the throat, in the ears and down the Eustachian tubes. General irritability.

Gelsemium: Non-stop sneezing. Eyes swollen, heavy and watery. Feels listless and dizzy.

It is always a good idea to seek the advice of a professional homeopath if you wish a long term solution to your hay fever.
