Hi, no it’s not special is it? It’s just plain annoying. For those living in big cities, are you finding you’re developing hay fever symptoms despite never having experienced them before? This can be a over-response of the immune system to foreign matter and general toxicity which is worse in summer. I’m also finding that more of you are turning to alternative treatments when antihistimines cause drowsiness or are ineffective in regular doses. Constitutional homeopathic treatment aims to balance your immune system and is best started before high pollen season.

For now, Euphrasia Tincture may help your eyes with the burning/stinging sensation. Put 2-3 drops in a wine glass of clean water and soak them in the solution. The following homeopathic remedies may help to ease hay fever symptoms affecting both eyes and noses and should be taken 3 times daily for 14 days.

Allium cepa 6c where eyes are itching, watery and there’s lots of sneezing.*

Natrum Muriaticum 6c where the nose is running constantly (like you want to stick tissues up it) but the eyes are dry and gritty.
