Allergic Problems

Most of us think of health as “freedom from disease”. But good health- apart from the absence of disease encompasses a harmony between the essential functions of body, mind and soul. Nature has given us tremendous capacity to live in good health. But as we keep deviating from Nature’s laws (principles) and as we are constantly exposed to various allergens, the body’s defense mechanism keep getting weaker day by day. This often predisposes our body to disease and it tends to acquire various physical or mental illnesses.

Allergy is an abnormal and individual hypersensitivity to substances that are ordinarily harmless and which results in various types of reactions. Pollens, for example, are generally harmless, yet many people are acutely sensitive or allergic to their presence.

Allergies are of two types:

  1. Exogenic (of external origin)
  2. Endogenic (of internal origin)

Exogenic allergy is caused by various external allergens like industrial wastes, chemicals, insecticides, pesticides etc. These allergens are actually just a tip of the iceberg. Our highly polluted environment compels us to inhale and ingest various chemicals that are potential allergens. Allergens, therefore appear to be unavoidable : We can’t really avoid dust, wheat or sun. Even human mother’s milk has been proven to contain various pesticides that are well recognized as allergens .

Eventually, all allergens seem to cause gradual changes in the genetic makeup and subsequently the allergy becomes Endogenic. The body tissues get ‘sensitized’ to various allergens and this leads to hypersensitivity reactions . These ‘sensitized’ response characteristics are passed on to the succeeding generations.

Substances that provoke an allergic reaction are called Allergens. The ‘list’ of allergens can be best described by the dictum that “Everything under the Sun including the Sun itself can act as a potential allergen ”. This makes our body a virtual ‘battle field’ with different allergens attacking from various directions leading to various allergic manifestations.

The fundamental cause of all allergies, therefore, is endogenic and in most cases it runs in the family tree of the patient.
Often allergy remains dormant in the patient’s body system until a situation arises when the patient’s immune system is at low guard and his resistance is highly compromised. ‘Physical stress states’ such as surgery, infections, serious diseases, pregnancy, old age etc. are some of the conditions where the body is predisposed to attacks by allergens.

Many children suffer from repeated attacks of cough & cold which might gradually disappear as adulthood approaches. But the respiratory problems flare up once again – often in form of Allergic rhinitis, Asthma or in the form of Eczema when body’s resistance is low or it comes in contact with the relevant allergens. Recurrent pain in legs experienced by children (known as growing pains) is a sign of Arthritis in later age. Women who have recently delivered (caesarian delivery) or have had Hysterectomy, suddenly develop symptoms of one or the other allergic disorders which were hitherto lying dormant.

Some of the commonest allergic diseases alternate in a patient’s life. A patient suffering from Eczema in childhood may from Bronchial Asthma in adulthood. Usually there would be a history of Hay Fever, Urticaria, Eczema, Asthma, Arthritis etc. in the family.

Most of the symptoms of allergy are elicited in the form of inflammation and itch. Inflammation denoted by suffix ‘itis’ e.g. Arthritis, Spondylitis, Tonsillitis, Pharyngitis, Rhinitis, Gastritis,etc. is manifested as pain, swelling, redness, rise in temperature and loss of function of the affected organ.

Constant exposure to allergens is like adding fuel to the fire. Keeping patient away from the susupected allergens helps when an external allergen seems to elicit the condition. But this is not always possible. Most of the time it is not even possible to identify the causative allergen.

The most practical approach in such situations is TO INCREASE THE BODY’S RESISTANCE so that even though there is a constant exposure to these allergens- the INTENSITY, FREQUENCY and DURATION of the allergic manifestations are gradually but makedly reduced, often to an almost negligible level.

Homeopathy is universally trusted not to SUPPRESS the condition. Rather, it improves the constitution of the person without any harmful side effects.

Prevention is better than cure” is an established philosophy. Individuals having strong family history of allergic symptoms can do much better in later years of their lives by taking preventive Homeopathic medication.

“Spandan” Homeo Cure clinic offer specific and comprehensive Homeopathic treatment for allergic disorders. Homeopathic medicines act by increasing the body resistance so that the repeated exposure to causative factors elicit markedly reduced intensity, frequency and duration of allergic manifestation. Eventually, with continued therapy, the symptoms tend to wane off completely.
