It seems that this time of year we all feel the joy of the renewal of nature, the warming of the earth and…AACHOO…the trigger of pollen in the air.
Homeopathic Allergy Remedies
Here are some helpful, readily available remedies to try to hay fever relief.
Allium cepa (Red onion): If your symptoms include sneezing with burning, runny nose, burning, tearful, red-rimmed eyes, as if you’d just peeled an onion, this is a good starting point.
Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright): If you tend towards conjunctivitis (inflammation of the eye and eyelids with weeping, or thick discharges), this may be the remedy for you. It also helps with headaches from the stuffiness. There is so much nasal discharge, there is a complaint of “I feel like I’m drowning” that would indicate this as a good remedy.
Sabadilla (Cevadilla seed): When your eyelids are red and burn terribly, with spasms of sneezing, and copious watery nasal discharge, even a touch of a wheeze, Sabadilla may bring relief.
Nux Vomica (Colubrina): Where there are paroxysms of sneeze after sneeze, with stuffiness that changes sides as you roll over at night, from left to right, reach for Nux vomica (this applies to colds with those symptoms, as well). Nux can help with any symptom where you feel you “want to but can’t” – so “if I could just blow my nose, I’d feel better,” for instance. With nux the eyes may be bloodshot, and there may be itching of the ears as an indicator symptom. It also helps with the wheezing that may accompany allergies.

Tired of fighting allergies every year?
Long-term detoxification may end your misery!
While certainly things are pollinating as we all look forward to floral festivals, it may not just be a matter of pollen. In Houston, we breathe up to five times more mercury in our air than almost any other city in the United States. Other areas of the country also have high levels of mercury in the air from petroleum or chemical refineries and generalized air pollution carries other heavy metals. What does that have to do with allergies? A great deal actually.
In the homeopathic materia medica the symptoms that are brought on by the substance mercurius vivus (quicksilver, or pure mercury) include, but are not limited to, “eyes: burning acrid discharge, nose: sinusitis and colds, coryza (runny nose) with sneezing; frequent sneezing; yellow, green, fetid, possible glue-like discharges; mucous membranes: inflamed, irritated; thick yellow nasal discharge,” all commonly found symptoms in many seasonal allergies.
Common sources of mercury toxicity, which can lead into allergies, can be mercury amalgam or “silver” dental fillings, batteries, broken CFC or fluorescent light bulbs, and air pollution from factories, refineries or chemical plants. While thimerosal, a common vaccine ingredient, has been removed from some childhood vaccines, many vaccines such as the flu vaccine, still contain high levels of mercury.
There are different ways to try to detoxify this heavy metal, but one of the most efficient, and gentle approaches is through the Houston Homeopathy Method of sequential homeopathy. We have had many people come to us over the years with chronic sinus issues, such as hay fever, eye irritation, and other common symptoms of allergy reactions. While we work to desensitize the system to the known pollen allergens, while simultaneously supporting the detoxification exit routes, we can usually get tangible relief through reduction of inflammation and the histamine reaction. Many of our clients have been able to get off of their allergy medications, allergy shots, sinus medications, even steroids which had been used, often for many years to “manage their symptoms.” As we have said before in these articles, symptom management is not the same as true health.
If you or someone you love has been plagued with chronic allergies, sinusitis, or other common sensitivities, homeopathic detoxification and sensitivity reduction through the Houston Homeopathy Method might offer solutions without drugs and their side effects, without expensive testing, through gentle homeopathic detoxification and desensitization.
For the longer term detox, consider the Houston Homeopathy Method. If you’re not certain you’re ready for it, you can start with the DIY+ program, and switch at any time, with a discounted initial consultation for being a DIY+ client!
