Homeopathy is well known for its use in the treatment of spring time allergies. Homeopaths use specially prepared medicines, derived from natural substances and many commonly occurring allergens. These medicines are utilised to assist in re-training the body and reducing allergic reactions or sensitivities to a wide range of substances. Homeopathy can be very useful during an acute hay-fever episode to reduce the symptoms, and also be used to reduce sensitivity and avoid future reactions. Grass, dust, animal, pollen or mould allergy sufferers can all find homeopathy useful.
