Allergies are abnormal immune system responses to normally harmless substances, called allergens. Some people are born with allergies, while others develop sensitivity to certain allergens as they grow older. We can develop an allergy to almost anything, but the most common allergens include, pollen, grass, house dust, wheat, lactose & certain chemicals in drugs or household cleaning materials. Some allergies can be seasonal, while others occur all year round. They cause respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, running nose & eyes, itching, headaches & fatigue & can range from mild to severe.
Conventional treatment involves the use of antihistamine drugs or even cortisone to try and control the symptoms of allergies. Natural herbal and homeopathic remedies for allergies and hay fever contain natural antihistamines extracted from plants, as well as herbs and homeopathic remedies which are effective in controlling the troublesome symptoms of allergies, without the side effects associated with conventional allergy medications.
