Supporting your Seasonal Allergies with Homeopathy

Every spring and summer, plants like flowers, trees, and grasses release pollen into the air, especially during March, April, and May. This influx of pollen can trigger seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever, characterized by symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, itchy throat, and a stuffed-up nose. For those seeking natural remedies, homeopathy offers a variety of options that are safe for home treatment. For recurring allergies it is best to seek constitutional prescribing from a qualified Homeopath.
