A well-selected constitutional remedy can be very helpful for reducing or eliminating allergy symptoms over time. You’ll notice more relief if you’ve started your constitutional remedy several months or longer before your worst allergy season peaks.
Here are some combination homeopathic products for short-term or additional allergy relief. These homeopathic products are low potency and seldom interfere with your constitutional remedy. You can find many of these at health food co-ops or Whole Foods. If you use mail order, the prices and service are excellent at Swanson Vitamins (based in Fargo, ND). BioAllers brand makes good Allergy Treatment products. Some of their varieties in dropper bottle form include:
- Tree Pollen
- Grass Pollen
- Pollen Hayfever
- Animal Hair & Dander
- Mold Yeast & Dust
Look for the one that best suits your allergies (can vary with time of year) and use just one BA product at a time as directed on the bottle. In addition or instead for nasal congestion, you can try BioAllers Sinus & Allergy Nasal Spray. For itchy watery eyes, try Similisan Allergy Eye Relief drops.
Try to avoid or minimize use of conventional allergy medications such as Zyrtec, Claritin, Singulair, or Nasacort. These products work by suppressing your symptoms and are more likely to interfere with your constitutional remedy.
If you are already on a constitutional remedy and need additional help beyond your remedy or the combination products above, try the following single homeopathic remedies for the symptom that bothers you the most.
Sneezing — Sabadilla 6C or 30C
Profuse nasal congestion and discharge – Allium Cepa 6C or 30C
Eyes stinging, burning, itching – Euphrasia 6C or 30C
Boiron brand remedies (available at health food co-ops or Whole Foods) are TWO pellets per dose (5 as on label is unnecessary) and have a convenient lid dispenser that allows you to dose without touching the remedy pellets. Try dosing 2-4 times per day depending on intensity of symptoms. Stop dosing when you feel well. If no change after 2-3 days, stop – not right remedy. Contact us for long-term help.
