Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma

Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis is a diagnosis associated with a group of symptoms affecting the nose. These symptoms occur when you breathe in something you are allergic to, such as dust, animal dander, or pollen. Symptoms can also occur when you eat a food that you are allergic to.

Symptoms of allergic rhinits include

  • Itchy nose, mouth, eyes, throat, skin, or any area
  • Problems with smell
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Symptoms that may develop later include:

  • Stuffy nose (nasal congestion)
  • Coughing
  • Clogged ears and decreased sense of smell
  • Sore throat
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Puffiness under the eyes
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Headache
  • Homoeopathy offers a better treatment for recurrent sneezing, nasal discharge and nasal obstruction. Patient can be relieved dramatically with in a course of 6-8 months. If the patient prevents the contact with allergens along with effective homoeopathic medicines, the result will be evident with in one month.This treatment can prevent the progress of allergy to bronchial asthma. Homoeopathy covers lower respiratory system, first giving relief to difficulty in breathing. Once lower respiratory tract is better it reduces upper respiratory illness also.This treatment is found effective not only in acute but also in long lasting cases with hereditary traits. Medicines like phosphorus, allium cepa, histamine, ars alb, sinapis nigra , pothos, bromium etc give immediate result in allergic rhinitis. Inorder to prevent recurrence we have to continue medication for a longer period.

    Asthma

    Homeopathy has an important part to play.

    Asthma is a very common condition affecting five per cent of the population at one stage of life.

    In asthma the bronchial tubes narrow and this makes it more difficult to breathe. Symptoms that occur in asthma are chest tightness, coughing, wheezy breathing and shortness of breath. These symptoms may simply occur when the body has to work harder – such as on walking quickly, going upstairs or running. House dust may provoke an asthma attack if there is a history of allergy as may exposure to cat,dog or horse hair. It is helpful to find out if the asthma is caused by an allergy as this can offer some direction that treatment with homeopathy may pursue. Asthma patients may have a personal or family history of hay fever and/or eczema, as these conditions tend to exist together.

    TREATMENT

    Initially homeopathic treatment may be used alongside conventional treatment but eventually we wish for a reduction in inhaler use and hopefully we can wean the patient off them provided that homeopathy gives a result as good or better than that obtained with inhalers. So what homeopathic medicines are available to treat asthma? Asthma like any other condition can be treated with homeopathy at various levels. The ideal would be to find the treatment, which reflects the Similimum of the case (or as near to the Similimum as possible). By Similimum, I mean the remedy that best matches the person not just in terms of his symptoms but also in terms of his psyche and the way that he relates to other people and to life generally. This would offer a deeper prospect of healing. However finding the Similimum may not always be possible and there are many remedies which may be given for the symptoms of asthma. There are also remedies that can be given for the causes of allergic asthma (homeopathic preparations of house dust mite, grasses and pollens etc). Asthma is a condition for which I would highly recommend professional treatment in our clinic. For severe cases of asthma,homoeopathic nebulisation is done here. A complete RECOVERY OF ASTHMA can be expected from this expert treatment.

    Medicines like grindelia Q, aralia Q , yerba santa Q. lobelia Q, ars alb 6x, blatta Q etc give immediate relief for asthma
