Allergy Season is in full effect! Most look forward to this beautiful season but for some it brings on the arrival of allergy season. No need to suffer with allergy symptoms or suppress the symptoms with medications, there are natural solutions.
To select the right homeopathic remedy you need to recognize the totality of symptoms you are experiencing and then identify which symptom is most troubling or what is most unusual about your specific symptoms.
Below is a list of common remedy that will help with seasonal allergies.
Try one for a few days if you don’t find relief choose another, if the second remedy doesn’t relieve your symptoms you may need a less common remedy that is not on this list. If you are looking to lessen the bodies overall allergic response over the long term this can be done by working with a homeopathic practitioner.
A remedy can be used in a 6, 12 or 30c potency. One pellet can be taken 3 times a day for up to 2-3 days, stop dosing when there is symptom relief. Resume dosing if symptoms go away only to return. If you need to continually keep taking the remedy to achieve relief it is likely not the right remedy contact me for additional help.
