Seasonal Allergy Help is here
It’s easier than ever to get real relief from seasonal allergies. Jana Cimermanova DCH, homeopathic practitioner from Electra Health Floor in Vancouver describes that an allergic reaction occurs when the immune system misinterprets a normally harmless substance such as pollen, certain food or pet dander as a harmful invader.
Normally, the various components of our immune system (for example: white blood cells, mast cells, antibodies, complement proteins) are designed to begin a defensive response whenever foreign substances enter our physiological environment. This response is an important line of defense against foreign or dangerous substances such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, cancer cells. When the immune system is healthy, it works like the health defense department that protects the body from threat.
But when the immune system is out of balance, the harmony and integration are lacking and the defense mechanisms become either overactive or may entirely fail to perform their defensive function. With reference to seasonal allergies, it’s as if the defense department receives a false alarm and is called to counteract substances such as pollen.
Seasonal allergies are the result of an overactive immune response to allergen (such as pollen from trees, grasses, weeds). The immune system of the person who is sensitive to an allergen such as pollen, responds by forming certain types of antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). When, the sensitized person subsequently encounters the allergen, the cells that have antibody IgE on their surface release histamine and this produces unpleasant symptoms. Primarily, symptoms effect the membrane lining of the nose, causing nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing and itching. Symptoms also effect the membrane lining of the eyelids, causing itchiness, swelling, redness, watery eyes, conjunctivitis.
We need to ask the question: what needs to be cured in order to get permanent relief from seasonal allergies? Fundamentally, the problem is not a particular pollen but rather a weakness in the defense mechanism and thus only a therapy which strengthens the entire organism and returns the defense mechanism back to balance will provide an effective cure. Homeopathy, aims to stimulate the whole organism, which then allows the strengthened defense mechanism to complete its work in proper order.
Classical Homeopathy offers specific and highly effective treatment for people with allergies. The approach is based on an entirely different model of health care than conventional medicine. It’s an approach geared toward treating the root cause of allergies versus temporary suppression of symptoms. In the homeopathic practice we try to bring people back into balance by treating the cause of the sensitivity not just the symptom.
There are many benefits that homeopathic treatment offers to people suffering from seasonal allergies and other chronic conditions:
- Deep level of cure and recovery from allergies and other chronic conditions
- Improved immune system function
- Increased energy
- Restored inner balance
