Homeopathy attempts to cure allergies by helping the body to heal itself.  Homeopathic therapy, designed to stimulate the body’s defenses, is based on the “Law of Similars,” that like cures like, substances that produce symptoms in healthy people will help heal those already suffering from similar symptoms.

The “remedies” (medicines) selected by the homeopath will depend upon the patient’s symptoms, plus the physical, mental and emotional state. The homeopath will be looking for the “constitutional remedy” with a “portrait” that most closely matches the patient’s portrait (including likes and dislikes, fears, sleep patterns and temperature).

Most of the major homeopathic remedies may be used for allergies, depending upon the patient’s symptoms. Some remedies include:

  1. Allium cepa, which is indicated when the patient’s symptoms are made worse by warm air at the onset of evening, but better by colder temperatures and open air.
  2. Arsenicum album, which is indicated when the patient is chilly, restless and fearful of disease. The slightest exertion tends to tire the patient. He or she may feel better in the middle of the night and in wet or cold weather. Heat and warm drinks make the symptoms worse.
  3. Garbo vegetabilis, which is indicated when the patient is sluggish, obese and fearful during the night. The symptoms are worse at night, in damp or warm weather and after eating fatty food.
  4. Euphrasia, which is primarily used for eye problems. Sunlight and warmth make the patient feel better.
  5. Natrum muriaticum, which is indicated when the patient is weak and weary, depressed and subject to rapidly changing moods. Noise, warmth and mental exertion worsen the symptoms, while open air, irregular meals and pressing against the back relieve them.
  6. Pulsatilla, which is indicated when the patient is timid and has difficulty making up his or her mind. Mild-tempered and given to weeping, the patient feels worse in the heat, after eating and when lying on his or her left side. Open air, cold compresses and moving around make him or her feel better.
