Homeopathy for Allergy

Allergy is an abnormal reaction or increased sensitivity to certain substances. The allergic individual produces symptoms when exposed to these substances. Most common allergens are animal dander, pollens, house dust, house mites, moulds, some drugs, and many food stuffs. Bee and wasp stings may cause allergic reactions, with fatal results in rare cases.

What is allergy?

Allergy is an abnormal reaction or increased sensitivity to certain substances.  The allergic individual produces symptoms when exposed to these substances, which are harmless to non-allergic people. The main reason for this is that allergic people make a special type of antibody called immunoglobin E (IgE), which can react with environmental substances in harmful way. These substances which lead to secretion of IgE antibodies are called allergens.

The reaction between allergen and IgE antibodies causes the release of substances such as histamine, which produce allergic symptoms in the skin, the nose, the eyes, the chest, etc.

The most common allergens are animal dander, pollens, house dust, house mites, moulds, some drugs, and many food stuffs, especially fish, eggs, milk, and nuts. Bee and wasp stings may cause allergic reactions, with fatal results in rare cases. Additionally, feathers, wood, dyes, cosmetics, and perfumes may act as allergen.

Two main types

  1. Seasonal allergies like hay fever are more common in the spring when plant pollination begins. Trees and grass cause most symptoms in the spring, while ragweed is responsible for the majority of autumn symptoms.
  2. Perennial allergies are usually year-round problems. Common triggers for perennial allergies include mould spores, pet dander and dust mite.

Common allergens

  1. Pollens (trees, grass, and weeds) 2. Moulds 3. House dust 4. Dust mites 5. Best stings 6. Medications 7. Foods 8. Animals 9. Air pollutants

Allergic reactions or diseases may involve any part of the body; the most frequently involved are the nose and the chest   with resultant symptoms of hay fever, or asthma, respectively. The skin eyes also commonly show allergic symptoms. Anaphylactic shock is a severe allergy (Homeopathy for Food Allergy), which affects many organs at the same time causing a rapid decrease in blood pressure, fainting and occasional death.

Skin prick test – the test involves using a small needle to prick a drop of fluid. Containing a known allergen just under the surface of skin, if there is reaction, it means test is positive and if skin does not react in any way this will indicate a negative result.
