I have the problem of allergic rhinitis how it can be cured and what are the special remedies for it.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, “Allergic rhinitis” has symptoms similar to the common cold, they often last for more than two weeks and do not include fever. Signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis are running nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, stuffy nose, and eye irritation. Homeopathy seeks to stimulate a self-healing response from the person’s own immune system. The main goal of the treatment is to strengthen the weak immune system. The most common Homoeopathic remedy For HAY Fever is Allium cepa 30 ch, 3 drops thrice daily when hay fever starts with thin, watery and excoriating discharge and sneezing. Also take Alpha WD , 20 drops with warm water once daily for the weak defence system.

You need to go for meditation to reduce your stress and to build up your stamina as well to feel strong from within. Take plenty of water to eliminate toxins. Take proteinous food. Make a habit of consuming one well ripen banana with a cup of warm milk. Eat soaked dry grapes or dates soaked in warm milk overnight. Regular outdoor exercise helps to stimulate appetite. Take small and frequent meals.
