Seasonal allergies often top the list of spring nuisances. While many over-the-counter solutions might alleviate symptoms, they often bring unwanted side effects that can disrupt daily life — from drowsiness to dry mouth. This is where homeopathy can help. Having your own kit of homeopathic medicines at the ready can ease bothersome allergy symptoms and, in the worst cases, decrease the need for conventional medication.

Homeopathy is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach, which can be particularly beneficial for managing the diverse symptoms of seasonal allergies. “There are several homeopathic medicines that can offer relief based on an individual’s needs and they will not interfere with medications already being taken or cause unwanted drowsiness,” explains Boiron’s pharmacist Christophe Merville, D. Pharm.

For some of the more common allergy symptoms, Dr. Merville recommends adding the following single medicines to your own kit.

Allium cepa 6C

This homeopathic preparation of the onion bulb can help with an allergic runny nose. Allium is used when nasal discharge is clear, watery and irritating to the nostrils as well as when there is spasmodic, fitful sneezing and itchy eyes usually from hay fever at the first stages and improved by cold air.*

Apis mellifica 30C

Apis is made from the honeybee and provides relief when the skin or mucous membranes are swollen, pink-red, itching and are improved by cold applications. Apis can also be used during hay fever episodes.*

Euphrasia officinalis 6C

The homeopathic preparation of eyebright relieves eye irritation with abundant and irritating tears and clear, non-irritating nasal discharge.* It can also be used to help swollen eyelids and burning eyes from allergies.* When used in addition to Euphrasia officinalis, sterile saline solution can help allergy symptoms by flushing the eyes of pollens and other allergens.

Galphimia glauca 6C

Galphimia is created using the shower of gold plant and it relieves an itchy nose and spasmodic sneezing brought on by hay fever.*

Histaminum hydrochloricum 30C

This homeopathic medicine, which is derived from histamine, can provide relief of hay fever, hives or even a reaction to an insect bite.*

Natrum muriaticum 6C

This homeopathic preparation of sea salt has many different indications including respiratory allergies and sun allergies where itching and a rash is triggered by sun exposure.*

Allium cepa and Histaminum hydrochloricum are two of the active ingredients found in AllergyCalm®, a homeopathic combination medicine for multi-symptom allergy relief. This medicine addresses indoor and outdoor allergies symptoms, including itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and itchy throat and nose.*
