Homeopathy aims at not just temporarily fixing the symptoms that are a result of the allergic reaction, but it uses a treatment which helps a patient resolve the underlying problems that cause the allergy. This means that a more effective cure is devised by the doctors using homeopathy. At Dr.Morlawar’s, we check for the medical history of the person and take them through various tests to look for the main reason of the allergy and then we build a treatment plan that is individualized for the person suffering the allergy. In doing so, we are able to effectively treat allergies and ensure that the results are effective in nature.
Allergies can be of various types. A person can suffer from food allergies, skin allergies and other forms of allergies like latex, bee-stings, pollen, etc. Sometimes, allergies can get better over a period of time and you may notice fewer symptoms. Children usually tend to outgrow their allergies as they grow up. As the immune system begins to weaken with age, many elderly people also find that their body reacts less to allergens. However, in some people allergy symptoms can be persistent and it may even continue to grow worse.
Allergens or the things that cause an allergy are simple things which are otherwise harmless, but your immune system considers it to be an intruder and begins to fortify itself to fight against the allergen. This is when you begin to notice the symptoms of your allergies. In most of the people, your genes are responsible for the way your body reacts to allergens. For some people, allergies can develop suddenly and they may become allergic to something which they have been exposed to before without any problems. When a person develops an allergy, the body requires treatment to help your system identify allergens as harmless things so that they do not trigger the symptoms. Homeopathy is very effective in helping your body alleviate the reactions to certain triggers.
