Weekly Remedies: Fall Allergies

This is the season of fall allergies. During the next five days I will post the five most effective remedies that can relieve allergy symptoms greatly. This is often the “introduction ailment” for people since seasonal allergies are fairly easy to relieve.

Allium cepa 12C or 30C
This remedy is for those who suffer from watery eyes and runny nose.
Both discharges are abundant. The nose runs “like a faucet”.
The differentiating factor to look for in this remedy is that only the
nasal discharge is corrosive, and irritates the skin on upper lip
and the nose within a day or two after the start of the allergies. Cold
water on the face brings immediate although short relief.

Arundo 12C or 30C
The allergy is similar to Allium cepa starts with burning and itching but there is also itching of the roof of the mouth or in the throat. This may translate in a child wanting to scrape the back of his mouth with his finger or “scraping” by creating sounds as if gargling to relieve the itch.

Euphrasia
This remedy has an affinity for the eye. The nose may run too but the eyes is central. The tears are corrosive. With Allium cepa the nasal discharge is corrosive but with Euphrasia tears are. Burnin, swelling and burning even sand like sensation in the eyes. Cold water does not relieve the symptoms.

Badiaga 12C or 30C
The symptoms of Badiaga are: Profuse watery, nasal discharge with sneezing. The mucus is irritating as with Allium cepa but the person needing Badiaga will splash warm to hot water to relieve the symptoms whereas Allium cepa calls for cold water. Watch for what the child naturally goes for relief. Open her eyes under water in the bathtub or turn the cold faucet while taking the bath and put her head under. The clues come in the most mundane ways. When we can read the language, it all means something.

Ambrosia 12C or 30C
This remedy has all the common hay fever symptoms. Tears and much itchiness of the eyelids. Burning eyes and watery nasal discharge. It covers all the basics. There may also be end of summer dysentery.
