Pollen from a variety of common plants: sunflo...

It is always that time of the year in some households.”My child has started sniffing again”, “I have an itchiness in my eyes and nose and have been been using up tons of tissues”, “I have been sneezing non-stop ever since the pollen count has gone up and I am quite fed up of my life”.
Yes, allergy season has arrived. However some unlucky ones may suffer through out the year.
What causes these allergies in us? An allergy is a hypersensitive immune response to some foreign protein. These proteins could be things that we have touched, inhaled or even eaten. These allergens- pollen, cat hair, house dust, rag weed, eggs, milk, strawberries, etc. are by themselves harmless substances. It is your body that is at fault. Your immune system somehow seems to think that these are harmful or dangerous substances and sets up a reaction that leads to the symptoms of allergies. If the manifestation is in the upper respiratory tract, you may get an itchy nose or eyes, with a stuffing up of the nostrils due to a swelling of the linings and a lot of sneezing. If the lower respirtory tract is affected, the airways called the bronchi swell up and go into a spasm producing the peculiar features of bronchial asthma. Some of the persons may get a reaction on the skin which leads to wheals with a lot of itching. This is the manifestation of hives or urticaria. In some severe cases of immune responses, there can be a severe swelling of the whole body, the lips, the tongue and the lining of the respiratory tract (angioneurotic edema) which can cause the patient to suffocate. This reaction, called anaphylaxis, can be fatal if not treated immediately.
Most often, once you have allergies, they won’t improve on their own. In fact, they might worsen over time.
So how do we treat it? Remember that this is a hypersensitive immune state where the whole body is reacting to the foreign substance, even though the manifestation may only be in one part of the body. Hence the treatment should not be directed to the site where the symptoms are noticed. It is not the immune system in the nose, or lungs or the skin that is in a hypersensitive state but the whole body’s immune system is in that reactive state. The treatment therefore has to be directed to the patient as a whole and not his parts. That is where homeopathy, the holistic therapy steps in. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the totality of the symptoms. The homeopath will give a remedy that not only deals with the hypersensitive immune state, but will also tackle other coexistent conditions that may not have any direct relationship with the allergies. A patient who begins homeopathic treatment reports an increase in the energy levels, a greater resistance to infections and a sense of both physical and mental well-being. This is in addition to the fact that his allergies have disappeared!
And that is the reason we have so many patents of allergies and asthma under our care. You may want to read some of our cases that showcase the homeopathic treatment of asthma.

    I am not a physician and don’t play one on the TV. However, being in informatics I understand homeopathy as the science of treatment with relatively small doses of medications that actually cause symptoms of the disease to be manifested. I guess the re-staging of the symptoms allows a homoeopathist to find the “root cause” of the disease rather than the alternative allopathic methods of probabilistic application of medications. Problem remains where these random drugs start interacting with each other and cause adverse effects. Again, I am not claiming any scientific explanation of my understanding. However, it is important that the homeopathic world recognizes the application of informatics in alternative medicine. I am talking about specific homeopathic based:
    • Electronic Health Record with patient history, problems, immunizations and interoperability between homeopathic physicians. This will help to create an “Evidence Based “Homeopathy database worldwide which I don’t believe exists today.
    • Mobile Health and Interaction / Symptom public sites
    • Patient Collaborations with homeopathic physicians through mobile and tablet devices which will monumentally expand better understanding and awareness of core philosophy of the science.
    In this world of super growth in chronic diseases, only 1.1 physicians per 1000 population and Everest incidences of patient safety violations, monumental increase in allopathic drug costs, the world will need in my estimate at least 3 times more physicians and nurses just for the aging and children population. I feel there should be a serious effort towards extending the arm of connected informatics initiated by homeopathic professionals.
