The first signs of Spring usually bring a smile to our faces and a sense of well-being to our hearts, especially in a year when we have had such a long and harsh winter.
However, for people who suffer from spring allergies it’s quite a different story. As if a runny nose, itchy eyes and constant sneezing isn’t enough, they feel tired, foggy and have difficulty accomplishing their day’s tasks. As a last resort, they may reach out for an anti-histamine medication, which usually takes care of many of the symptoms, but has to be repeated daily for the effect to last.
Homeopathy has great success with allergies and hay fever since it is not just a temporary band aid to soothe the symptoms, but instead addresses the underlying cause by which the immune system is reacting so strongly to pollen and other allergens.
With a consultation that uses the MICH method™, the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual characteristics that make each person unique are brought to light and it is this that determines the homeopathic intervention.
A core remedy is matched with the whole person and is taken once to see its effect on the organism, and then repeated only occasionally as determined by the consultation. For more about how homeopathy works click here.
Other supports may be chosen by the homeopath to address specific aspects of the person’s overall symptoms. Already, after the first consultations a greater sense of well-being is felt and the person can start to look forward to the next Spring season with optimism.
