The best time to seek alternative treatment for hay fever is during the off-season. Homeopathy, for example, works on strengthening the whole person to improve general health and increase resistance against illness. When seeking alternative treatment for hay fever, try to do it before your allergic season.

Long-Term Alternative Treatment for Hay Fever

Eliminating allergic responses can take up to two years, but symptoms will be reduced as you go through treatment. Remember that it will take time and to be patient, because allergies will be eradicated as your overall health becomes stronger. You will eventually feel better!

If you do seek alternative treatment for hay fever during an allergic episode, your homeopathic physician will usually use an "acute" remedy to ease your symptoms. This will not treat the underlying problem, though, so you will still need to resume treatment once your allergic season is over.

Some acute remedies that are often used to treat hay fever include Allium Cepa (Red Onion), Euphrasia (Eyebright), and Nux Vomica (Poison Nut). Sometimes it is helpful to take a higher potency to get faster and long term relief. For example, one 200 dc dose of a remedy is better than repeated use of a 6c or 30c. If you need help choosing a remedy, see your homeopath.
