Itchy, burning eyes, congested sinuses, runny nose, itchy nose and palate, itchy this, itchy that. Yikes, the list could go on and on. If you're like most people, you haven't heard about how homeopathy can really help you. It's easier to just go to the store and buy Zyrtec, Musinex, Claritin, Advair, or get an allergy shot. It's simply just what we know to do or grew up doing in the first place.
The frequent concern I hear about, though, is the need to always take the medication. Maybe the drug works a little bit, maybe it doesn't at all. Maybe it used to work quite well, but doesn't help this season. Usually, there are many side effects to contend with and that is very unpleasant. There are so many variations in how we respond to medications because we are unique individuals. We have unique qualities and unique expressions of our symptoms.
In Austin, homeopathy has a fitting place in providing you lasting relief from your allergy symptoms. Because homeopathy is aimed at strengthening your body's ability to heal itself, it is directed at the unique expression of your symptoms, not just that you have allergies.
Duly noted, allergies encompass so many different systems of our body. There are also food sensitivities and allergies. Digestive complaints are common, skin related reactions can occur, and even joint pain and headaches happen as a result.
Once again, Austin, Homeopathy can provide you relief! There are over 5000 homeopathic remedies to choose from to help you. In previous blogs (on April 9th), I posted a few homeopathic remedies that can help you for seasonal/environmental allergies. In this blog, I'll post a couple homeopathic remedies that can help you if you have food allergies:
Carbo Vegetablis: Reacts to food with weakness, faintness, chilliness, and indigestion. Bloating, flatulence, and frequent need to burp. In general, the person feels better from fresh air. They have great insecurity with the symptoms, so they may react with feeling cross and demanding to those around them.
Lycopodium: Heartburn, gas, and a rumbling abdomen. The person may have ravenous hunger yet quickly gets bloated from eating only small amounts of food. Feel fatigued and drowsy after eating. They also feel weak if they miss a meal too. In general, they feel worse in the late afternoon and evening.
Natrum Carbonicum: The person has trouble digesting and assimilating food and they have to stay on restricted diets. Indigestion, heartburn, and ulcers are common. Milk or dairy leads to flatulence or sputtery diarrhea, which leaves an empty feeling in the stomach.
Please note this list is not comprehensive and is intended for acute relief. If your symptoms are chronic (long-standing) and severe, it's best to consult a qualified practitioner.
