Everywhere I look, trees and flowers are bursting into life. Colourful and energetic, they don’t look like my enemy, yet they are.

Sneezing Time

The Misery of Hayfever

Since my childhood, sitting in overheated exam rooms with the windows open and the smell of newly mown grass all pervasive, punctuated with the sound of my sneezing and the misery that is Hayfever. Exams are hard enough without trying to ensure that you can actually concentrate and hold a pen and a hanky at the same time.
I’ve found it particularly bad this year, earlier and more vicious than usual.

Thankfully, I have my remedy box to resort to, and it has been very helpful indeed. If you want to use homeopathy for Hayfever, this is well within the capability of the home user and the key symptoms to note include itchy eyes, whether tears are acrid or not, and which nostril discharge predominates from. Arsenicum Album, Allium Cepa and Euphrasia are often helpful in classical homeopathic treatment.

For the more adventurous, a remedy made from Mixed Pollens can be very useful. The treatment of hayfever was the subject of some very interesting work by Dr David Reilly of the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital and you can read about this work in the British Medical Journal here.
