“I was prompted to contact Eileen due to worsening of hayfever, asthma and allergic symptoms. I noticed immediate improvement after a week of starting the remedy. I have continued to progress and now have little or no symptoms. My breathing is much clearer and I have little or no reaction to dogs or cats, whereas before my reaction was instant. I found the consultation sessions to be very helpful and thorough and would have no hesitation in recommending Eileen to anybody who suffers from asthma/allergies/hay fever”. Paul
Spring and summer can be a time of great despair for hayfever and allergy sufferers and over the last three decades statistics have shown increasing numbers of adults and children suffering from hayfever, asthma and food allergies as a result of a hyperactive immune system.
Conventional medicines may ease symptoms for a short time but do not necessarily alleviate the underlying problem and are not tolerated by everyone.
Homeopathy offers a natural solution for allergy sufferers, helping to reduce the allergic and inflammatory reactions short term while at the same time treating the underlying cause and boosting the immune response long term.
Homeopathy recognizes that no two people will present the exact same allergy symptoms, therefore treatment is individualized rather than a blanket approach of “one size fits all”.
For example one person may having streaming eyes, sneezing, hoarseness, and a raw sore throat which feels worse in the morning and while indoors. Another person may have an extreme itch in the nose, palate and throat, which is worse in the evening and is temporarily relieved when outdoors. As the symptoms differ, so too will the prescribed remedy.
If you suffer from hayfever or seasonal allergies the best way to survive the hayfever season is by boosting your immune system to reduce your allergic response and using “support homeopathic acute remedies” to help with immediate relief of existing symptoms.
Ideally the best way to eradicate allergies is to treat the underlying cause, which leads to allergic reactions rather than simply treating the symptoms that manifest. When the immune system is not functioning well, we can become predisposed to developing allergies. If the immune system can be strengthened then the body will no longer need to produce the troublesome symptoms. While this process is underway “Acute” remedies can be used during the hayfever/allergic season to bring more immediate relief while the immune response is building and improving.
It is not necessary to wait for hayfever symptoms to start in order to begin homeopathic treatment. In fact it is preferable to start before the season commences. However if you symptoms have already kicked in acute remedies can be prescribed as needed.
Homeopathic remedies are safe and gentle to use, can be taken alongside conventional medicine, are suitable for children and are non addictive with no side effects.

Symptoms vary from person to person and for those plagued with debilitating symptoms it can also mean time of work. A survey estimated that hayfever would cost British businesses £324 million in sick days over the summer months.(1)
A survey on behalf of Nelsons Homeopathy Dispensary showed that 72% of sufferers would prefer a natural alternative to anti-histamines and 79% would like to access natural treatments on the NHS.(2)
