An allergy is a condition that occurs due to the exaggerated reaction of the immune system following exposure to certain substances.

 

Alternative Ayurvedic medications aim to provide natural allergy relief by stablising the response of the immune system.

 

The substance producing the allergic response are called allergens. The most common allergens include dust mites, pollens, molds, foods, animal proteins, and even medications. However, the patients suffering from allergies develop the symptoms when exposed to different allergens. 

 

Though recognizing and avoiding the allergens can help prevent the symptoms of allergies to a great extent, the wide range of allergens and the varying susceptibility of patients to them forms a major obstacle in the treatment of this disease. However, complementing the treatment with herbal medicine for skin allergy can help to prevent the allergic response to a range of allergens by modulating the reaction of the immune system.

 

 

 

 

The common forms of allergic diseases include:

 

  • Allergic rhinitis or hay fever that affects the nose
  • Allergic conjunctivitis that affects the eyes
  • Contact dermatitis affecting the skin
  • Asthma affecting the lungs

 

 

Natural Allergy Medicine

 

 

Ayurvedic treatments for allergies are based on the use of herbs that are considered to posses natural antihistamine agents, which may prevent the development of these symptoms. Regular use of these herbal natural allergy supplements can help to regulate the functions of the immune system and aim to prevent its exaggerated response to the allergens, thus reducing the frequency and intensity of the attacks of allergic diseases.

 

Natural Best Herbs For Allergies

 

Some of the ayurvedic herbs that have been used traditionally for  the management  of symptoms of allergies are given below:

 

Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris)

Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)

Amalaki (Phyllanthus emblica)

Neem (Azadirachta indica)

Khadira (Acacia catech)

Anantmool (Tylophora asthmatica)

Tulsi (holy basil)

 

Ghritharidra: Ghritharidra is commonly used as a natural pollen allergy cure. It works by reducing inflammation in the airways, especially the nasal cavity.

 

 

Allergy Care In Ayurveda

 

Ayurvedic believes that several key factors including the inherited tendencies of the person, the strength of his or her digestive fire, and the state of balance or imbalance in the three doshas determine the risk a patient bears to develop allergic diseases.

 

Ayurveda offers a number of techniques that help strengthen the digestive fire or Agni, and by improving the state of balance between the doshas. Ayurvedic treatments include the use of herbal remedies for seasonal allergies based on the patient’s primary dosha, or the mind-body constitution.

 

It also advocates following an Ayurvedic diet that eliminates the bad choices of foods, which may aggravate the imbalance between the doshas and even the specific substances to which the patients may be allergic.
