Allergic Rhinitis

Allergies can take many forms but perhaps the most widespread is allergic rhinitis, both seasonal and perennial, commonly known as ‘hay fever’.

Typical symptoms include sneezing, blocked and itchy nose and a watery nasal discharge but sufferers might also experience red and itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath, tiredness, fever, a pressure sensation in the head and general itchiness.

The aim of conventional treatments is to minimise or eliminate symptoms and improve quality of life through the use of oral and topical antihistamines, oral and intranasal corticosteroids and decongestants.

Acupuncture and homeopathy can help restore balance to the body’s natural immune system, improving disturbed sleep patterns, and relieving symptoms such as itching and swelling of the nasal passages.

How we can help:

  • Relief of symptoms
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Dispersal of swelling
