The Most Snuffle-Full Time of the Year

Spring can be such a beautiful time of year with the weather improving, so many trees blossoming and flowers coming up. Yet, it may also be the start of a yearlong cycle for Hay fever sufferers and a time of exacerbated symptoms for those with Allergic rhinitis.

Hay fever or ‘seasonal’ allergic rhinitis and year-round or ‘perennial’ Allergic rhinitis can affect a variety of people. Whether it’s periodically triggered by pollens during the year or year-round caused by a variety of allergens, it’s not a very enjoyable experience.

Allergic rhinitis symptoms may be uncomfortable and unpleasant, from an itchy throat and/or ears, watery, red, and irritated eyes, sneezy, blocked and/or runny nose, coughing, and more – these symptoms can be quite disruptive to daily life.

As a medical herbalist, Hay fever and Allergic rhinitis, are conditions I regularly treat. Herbal consultations take the entire person into consideration and while there are a variety of herbs that may help with managing the symptoms of Allergic rhinitis, an in-depth herbal consultation also considers a patient as an entire being and explores various influential factors that may impact a patient’s experience of allergies.

Allergic rhinitis doesn’t just affect us during the day, it may impact our nighttime too, with sleep disturbances and a lack of rest. So here at Southcote, we have a range of options to provide additional support for Allergic rhinitis and Hay fever sufferers too, including Reiki for improving relaxation and Craniosacral Therapy to support the nervous system.
