This will help reduce the drug dependency on anti-allergic medicines as well. Homeopathy offers the best treatment for allergy which is related to the skin and respiratory system. Homeopathy has been used as a natural form of treatment for allergies for centuries. Let’s have a look at how homeopathy can help in treating allergies.
Why do Allergies Occur?
Allergies may occur due to many causes which are as follows:
- Low immunity
- Hypersensitivity to allergens
- More seen in children than adults
- Environmental conditions such as the cold weather
- Food allergens
- Animal dander
- Cigarette smoking
- Unhealthy diet
- Vitamin Deficiency
What are the Different Types of Allergies?
There are different types of allergies which are as follows:
- Skin allergy causing urticaria
- Allergic rhinitis causing cold
- Allergic bronchitis causing cough
These allergies are known to be quite common among people.
What are the Symptoms of Allergy?
The symptoms of allergy are:
- Redness of eyes
- Watering of eyes
- Frequent cold and cough
- A runny nose
- Body pain
- Congested nose
- Throat irritation
- Difficulty in breathing
Allergy and Immune System
A weakened immune system or hypersensitive immune system is the main cause of allergy. A person having an allergy may experience overactivity of the immune system on exposure to the above-mentioned allergens and may overreact to it causing symptoms of allergy. Allergies can be of 3 types:
- Mild allergy
- Moderate allergy
- Severe allergy
This depends on the chronicity of the problem. An allergy occurs when your immune system overreacts to the typical substances and conditions which are otherwise harmless. A person’s immune system produces antibodies when they suffer from allergies. The seriousness of allergy differs from patient to patient depending on the chronicity of the allergy. Allergy is one of the common chronic health problems that many people suffer from worldwide.
How to Detect Allergies?
Allergy can be diagnosed or detected by a professional doctor who takes a detailed case consultation to diagnose the problem. During the case consultation, your symptoms will help to figure out the diagnosis of your condition. However, certain diagnostic tests can also confirm allergies such as IgE levels. High IgE levels will confirm that you have an allergy. Your doctor may prescribe you this test if you have been suffering from an allergy.
Can Allergies Weaken Your Immune System?
Well, the answer is yes. You already have low immunity levels which is why you are allergic. But, frequent episodes of allergy can result in the weakening of the immune system and make you more prone to infections.
Is Relying on Anti-allergic Medicine for Long, right?
If you have been taking anti-allergic medicines for a long time, it is time to take action as you might become resistant to it. We understand that there is no particular treatment for allergies other than avoiding the allergen. However, you can opt for an alternative mode of treatment – Homeopathy which can treat the root cause of allergy and reduce its severity. The allergic attack and episodes can be reduced and your relief from allergies can be improved with homeopathy.
Homeopathy for Allergies
Homeopathy treats allergies safely and effectively. It addresses and treats the root cause of the problem. The immune system gears up all the systems of the body. Homeopathy works by providing symptomatic relief initially to reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of the allergy and then treat it from the root cause.
If you have an allergy, it’s time to get started with homeopathy which will help you recover from the condition and develop a healthy immune system.
