Normally, our immune system helps protect us. It does this by sending in special cells, that attack whenever viruses, bacteria, or other harmful substances invade our body. This response helps neutralize the foreign invaders. But many things enter our body that the immune system usually views as harmless. This can include things like pet hair; dust mites; and tree, weed, or grass pollen. In a person with allergies, the immune system mistakes these harmless substances, known as allergens, for a potential threat and starts to react it in an altered way and as result different allergic symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, asthmatic symptoms, skin rashes develops. Allergies can strike anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnic background, or social or economic status. One of the most common forms of allergies is an allergic reaction to something in the air. These tiny particles floating in the air are so small that they cannot even be seen. But, when breathed into the nose or lungs, or when they come in contact with the eyes, they can cause an allergic reaction. These particles are called allergens, a name given to substances that cause an allergic reaction.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF ALLERGY
There are many things enter our body that our immune system usually views as harmless. But in a person with allergies, the immune system by mistakes looks these harmless substances known as allergens as a potential threat and starts reacting. So how we can define those allergic persons whose body immune power reacts vigorously to the harmless substances whereas the same immune power in another non allergic person does not react. How we can differentiate an allergic person from a non allergic person. What are the things present in an allergic person that differentiate him from a non allergic person. The answer is the HYPERSENSITIVITY. One allergic person is more hypersensitive towards certain allergens while the healthy person is not. One allergic person has the excessive susceptibility to wards some particular allergens which are harmful for that person whereas harmless to the healthy one. A proper homeopathy treatment helps to change that hypersensitivity of the person. It helps to modify the hyper susceptibilities of the person. When the hypersensitivity or the hyper susceptibilities of the person is modified he will not then react adversely to the harmless allergens which he was reacting earlier. This can only be possible by a proper constitutional homeopathy treatment by taking the totality of symptoms. Homeopathy treatment acts at the body’s deep seated energetic level. It is because the hypersensitivity of the person makes his immune cells to react adversely to the normal substances. That tendency of hypersensitiveness of the person cannot be defined at physical level. It can only be define at nature or character or an energy level. A proper homeopathy treatment fixes that problem at the root level and makes that person health as a whole.

  • 2. WHAT IS ALLERGY? Normally, our immune system helps protect us. It does this by sending in special cells, that attack whenever viruses, bacteria, or other harmful substances invade our body. This response helps neutralize the foreign invaders. But many things enter our body that the immune system usually views as harmless. This can include things like pet hair; dust mites; and tree, weed, or grass pollen. In a person with allergies, the immune system mistakes these harmless substances, known as allergens, for a potential threat and starts to react it in an altered way and as result different allergic symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, asthmatic symptoms, skin rashes develops. Allergies can strike anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnic background, or social or economic status. One of the most common forms of allergies is an allergic reaction to something in the air. These tiny particles floating in the air are so small that they cannot even be seen. But, when breathed into the nose or lungs, or when they come in contact with the eyes, they can cause an allergic reaction. These particles are called allergens, a name given to substances that cause an allergic reaction.
  • 3. TYPES OF ALLERGY: Many health disorders are caused by an allergic reaction. The most commons are given below Allergic bronchial asthma Allergic Rhinitis Urticaria or hives Atopic dermatitis
  • 4. PATHOGENESIS OF ALLERGY Our body's immune system is designed to recognize and to attack of any foreign particle or protein that enter inside our body. It has the remarkable ability to distinguish between "self" and "non-self" cells. There are many things enter our body that our immune system usually views as harmless. But in a person with allergies, the immune system by mistakes looks these harmless substances known as allergens as a potential threat and starts reacting. This is where the allergic reaction starts. The cascade of allergic reaction is like this Lymphocytes are white blood cells that play a key role in both immunity and allergy. They are divided into two types, the T and B lymphocytes. The T lymphocytes can be classified into killer T cells and helper T cells (TH). The helper T cells (TH) is divided into two types - TH1 (infection fighters) and TH2 (allergy promoters). The Blymphocytes produces antibodies to help destroy foreign substances when stimulated to do so by the TH2 cells. When the T cells come into contact with any allergen the"helper" T cells (TH2) are activated, thus releasing chemicals (cytokines) that stimulate B lymphocytes. B lymphocytes produce IgE antibodies that bind to the allergens.
  • 5. Cytokines are small proteins that can either step-up or step-down the immune response. One of the cytokines, interleukin 4 (IL4), is essential for the production of IgE. Interleukin 5 (IL5) and others are important in attracting other cells, particularly eosinophils, to promote inflammation. These spectrums of cytokines are released by the TH2 lymphocytes. Once the IgE is produced, it specifically recognizes its allergen and will recognize it on future exposure. Mast cells and basophils are the next key players in the allergic cascade. They are volatile cells with potentially explosive behavior. Mast cells reside in tissues while basophils are found in the blood. Each of these cells has over 100,000 receptor sites for IgE, which binds on their surfaces. The binding of IgE to these cells acts like the fuse on a bomb. Each mast cell and basophil may contain over 1000 tiny packets (granules). Each of these granules holds more than 30 allergy chemicals, called chemical mediators. When a sensitized individual is exposed to the specific allergen again, the IgE is ready to bind to this allergen. When this occurs, the mast cells and basophils are activated and explosively release the number of chemicals from their granules that ultimately produce the allergic reaction that we can see and feel.
  • 6. HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF ALLERGY There are many things enter our body that our immune system usually views as harmless. But in a person with allergies, the immune system by mistakes looks these harmless substances known as allergens as a potential threat and starts reacting. So how we can define those allergic persons whose body immune power reacts vigorously to the harmless substances whereas the same immune power in another non allergic person does not react. How we can differentiate an allergic person from a non allergic person. What are the things present in an allergic person that differentiate him from a non allergic person. The answer is the HYPERSENSITIVITY. One allergic person is more hypersensitive towards certain allergens while the healthy person is not. One allergic person has the excessive susceptibility to wards some particular allergens which are harmful for that person whereas harmless to the healthy one.
  • 7. A proper homeopathy treatment helps to change that hypersensitivity of the person. It helps to modify the hyper susceptibilities of the person. When the hypersensitivity or the hyper susceptibilities of the person is modified he will not then react adversely to the harmless allergens which he was reacting earlier. This can only be possible by a proper constitutional homeopathy treatment by taking the totality of symptoms. Homeopathy treatment acts at the body’s deep seated energetic level.
