Hay fever When itching and runny nose dominate everyday life
“My nose is running and itching”, “My eyes are tearing”, “I prefer not to go outside anymore”.
This is how pollen allergy sufferers experience their agonizing attacks.
As soon as they go outside, the excruciating itching begins; the nose and eyes secrete fluid. The whole head feels heavy or like absorbent cotton, and many people feel really sick. In the beautiful spring and summer months, this can really spoil the joy of life for those affected.
The body’s own defenses attack what are actually harmless proteins in pollen and thus produce these symptoms. And it doesn’t matter which of the various pollens are the actual triggers.
How does Vedic medicine view hay fever?
Hay fever from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, hay fever starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which in the case of hay fever have settled in the respiratory tract. Most hay fever patients, however, do not know about this trigger and thus how they can causally counteract this disease.
According to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so every case of hay fever is a little different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, hay fever is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. In most cases, the causal treatment of hay fever focuses on the elimination of toxins. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into the necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful breathing exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help you to lead a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers become so strong that you can live relaxed with the original allergy triggers in the future.
