You can find out here which other Schuessler salts can relieve hay fever symptoms and how they are best used!
Schuessler salts: gently relieve hay fever
Most hay fever sufferers look forward to spring with mixed feelings: When the temperatures rise, birch, hazelnut, alder & Co. send billions of tiny pollen through the air. The immune system of those affected reacts allergically to mucosal contact with the pollen and releases inflammatory messengers such as histamine. The consequences: stuffy, itchy nose with a runny nose, sneezing attacks, itchy, red and watery eyes, swollen eyelids and much more.
Conventional medicine recommends medication such as antihistamines and cortisone as well as specific immunotherapy (desensitization) for people who are allergic to pollen. In addition, complementary healing methods such as Schuessler salts could help with hay fever. They are a gentle remedy for a runny nose, sneezing attacks and other symptoms.
No. 8 of the Schuessler salts: hay fever main remedy
The main remedy for pollen allergies is sodium chloratum, number 8 of the Schuessler salts. Hay fever complaints in the area of the nose and eyes can be treated effectively with it. Above all, nose drops or eye drops made from this mineral are recommended.
Taking the mineral as “Hot 8” should also be effective: 10 tablets of Schuessler Salt No. 8 in the potency D6 are dissolved in a glass of hot water and then drunk in sips.
Incidentally, sodium chloratum is not only used for pollen allergies, but also for other allergies.
