Think allergy season is limited to just the spring and fall? It’s not! Pollen, mold and insect bites can also set off a round of allergy symptoms in the warmer months of summer. Homeopathic medicines can provide natural relief for many allergy sufferers, including children, seniors and those taking other medications.
Homeopathic medicines do not cause drowsiness, which can be caused by some antihistamines, and are not contraindicated with existing conditions, making them ideal for patients with conditions such as glaucoma or high blood pressure. In comparison, people with diabetes, liver disease, heart or blood vessel disease, kidney disease and a half-dozen other ailments, are advised to consult with their physician before taking a decongestant, which can cause dry mouth or raise blood pressure.
Homeopathy is not a one-size-fits-all approach to treating allergies. You can use our Homeopathic Medicine Finder to find which medicine may be best for you or a family member.
