Allergists-immunologists deal with allergies, asthma and other conditions of the immune system. There is a wide variety of disorders that fall under allergic conditions such as dermatitis, hay fever, allergic asthma, anaphylaxis etc. These are primarily cause due to the hypersensitivity of an individual’s immune system to certain allergens or irritants like types of food, certain drugs and chemicals, some cosmetic products, pollen, dust, animal fur, insect stings, changes in the weather, etc. Symptoms of these adverse reactions in the body include rashes on the skin of the limbs or face, hair loss, red eyes, excessive coughing and sneezing, breathing problems, swelling. Most of these allergens do not cause any difficulty for most people but the patients suffering from allergies experience such reactions because of the malfunctioning of the immune system due to weakening of the system of due to diseases, immunosuppressant medicines or due to genetic predispositions.

Perfect treatment of Asthma allergy.
Asthma, a condition often labeled as incurable and chronic can be cured if treated with Homeopathic medicines. Cases of recent origin and those affecting children have shown encouraging curative results and chronic, advanced cases experience noticeable reduction in the intensity and reoccurrence of the attacks. If you are heavily dependant on bronchodilators or inhalers Homeopathic treatment will help you fight the precipitating factors (allergen), thereby making you less dependant on those medications. Conditions such as poor resistance to climatic changes, recurrent colds / sinusitis and atopic dermatitis (skin affection) can be effectively cured during the course of the treatment. How do we achieve this? A holistic or a constitutional approach in which a remedy capable of influencing the following factors is prescribed: Person’s family history (genetic predisposition) Personal health history (sensitivity to allergens) Body type (obesity and immune status) Present status of all physical symptoms (intensity & frequency of the asthma attacks) Any emotional aggravating factor This individualistic approach helps in overall improvement of the condition and relieves any other condition associated with asthma.
