Allergies are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system. The immune system normally protects the body against harmful substances like bacteria, viruses, toxins etc. Allergy is caused when the immune system reacts to substances (allergens) that are- generally harmless and in most people do not cause an immune response. Heredity, environmental conditions, number and type of exposures and emotional factors can increase the sensitivity of the immune system.
- Itchy, runny, stuffy noses and itchy eyes and sneezing. Often caused by pollen from trees, grass, weeds etc. which is commonly called Hay Fever.
- With the onset of cold weather the hay fever subsides.
- Persistent allergic rhinitis can however occur through out the year, and is caused by indoor allergens such as dust, mite and animal dander
- Hay fever (allergic rhinitis) is an allergic reaction to pollen.
- An identical reaction occurs with allergy to animal dander, dust, and similar inhaled allergens.
When an allergen such as pollen enters the body of a person with a sensitized immune system (defence system), it triggers anti-body formation. Body tissues release histamine and other chemical as part of the defence response. This causes itching, swelling of affected tissues, mucus production, muscle spasms, and other symptoms.
Most trees produce pollen in the spring, grass and flowers produce pollen during the summer, and ragweed and other late-blooming plants produce pollen during late summer and early autumn. During the pollen season, the chances of allergies increases.
CHARLES BLACKEY, a homeopath first proved that pollen from grasses is the cause of seasonal hay fever.
