What is hay fever?
Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is an allergic reaction that typically occurs in the eyes, nose and throat.
Common hay fever symptoms include:
- Runny nose (usually a clear, thin discharge)
- Red, watery eyes
- Itchy nose, roof of the mouth, eyes and/or skin
Hay fever symptoms can be classified into two types:
- Seasonal - symptoms are notably present in the months of spring and summer when various plants, grasses and flowers release pollen.
- Perennial - symptoms are present all year round and are generally worse at night or in the early morning.
What causes hay fever symptoms?
Hay fever symptoms occur when the immune system reacts inappropriately to a usually harmless substance, such as pollen. This reaction triggers the release of histamine, an incredible chemical that helps regulate immune reactions, gut function and central nervous system processes, but is also responsible for allergy symptoms.
This is why anti-histamines are commonly used to treat hay fever symptoms, as they block the release of histamine. But, over time, your body can build up a tolerance and they lose their effectiveness.
Seasonal hay fever symptoms are usually triggered by reactions to:
- Plant Phenolics
Perennial (year-round) hay fever symptoms are generally triggered by:
- Dust Mites
Taking notice of when your symptoms are at their worst can help pinpoint your triggers, though it is common to experience both types of hay fever and have symptoms throughout the year, especially during spring and summer.
Natural hayfever treatment
At Health & Wellness Australia, use an alternative technique called muscle testing (or kinesiology) to help identify your hay fever triggers. Following testing, you can work with your practitioner to address your sensitivities using a natural allergy treatment called Positive Association Technique (PAT).
PAT is a non-invasive holistic therapy, which:
- draws on acupressure and kinesiology techniques
- aims to re-train your body
- may reduce your reactions to substances that may be causing or exacerbating your hay fever symptoms
PAT cannot cure allergies - it is intended to decrease your reactions and help manage hayfever-related symptoms.
