Allergy Nasal

Natural herbal remedies for allergy in formulas are designed for acute flares as well as chronic rhinitis.

If one is suffering from chronic allergic rhinitis with frequent flare ups, one may choose chronic rhinitis and take her a long term. This is a natural herbal remedy for allergy which aims at the roots of allergy ( diminished immune functions ) as well as the manifestations of allergy ( histaminic and other inflammatory responses).


There are 2 major types of rhinitis. 1) Allergic which can be seasonal or perennial, 2) Vasomotor  with nasal mucosa sensitive to nonallergic external stimuli such as cold weather.


In both types, the symptoms are the same: watery nasal discharge, sneezing, and nasal congestion. Biomedical treatments are only the management of the symptoms with nasal decongestant, antihistamines, and steroids. The side effects are many including rebound nasal congestion. Natural herbal remedies for allergy are safe, effective without the side effects of antihistamine.


In eastern herbal medicine, in both allergic and vasomotor rhinitis, the underlying prerequisite is always Deficiency of bioenergy called Defensive Qi of Lung and kidney. The meredian of the defensive qi runs from the source between the kidneys, up the spine to the vertex of the head and down to the nose.


( This is why when a weakened person is splashed with cold water over the back, often the reaction is catching a cold or vasomotor rhinitis with chills and Sneezing) Another way of saying is that clinically significant rhinitis always arises out of weakened immune system, although biomedicine focuses on hyperreactive immune reaction.

Clinically flare ups of rhinitis occur mostly when a person's immunity is weakened by mental or physical overtaxation or by indulgences with dietary indiscretions. In eastern herbal medicine the allergens or other environmental factors called wind pathogens like to attack the nose when the defensive qi is down.


In terms of treatment strategies of natural herbal remedies for allergy, one has to distinguish between seasonal and perennial rhinitis. With the seasonal flare ups, one focuses more on the management of nasal inflammation ( the formula is Herbal Nose Clear ). After the attack has subsided, one has to tonify the immune system by tonification of lung, kidney, and spleen. ( pending, or one may use the appropriate formula  a relatively long term from chronic fatigue category to help prevent the attack ) With the mild falre of perennial rhinitis it is better to treat both the roots and the manifestations by simultaneous tonification and antiinflammatory actions. ( the formula Chronic rhinitis) If the symptoms of rhinitis have advanced to involve the sinuses, one can use the formula Herbal Sinus Clear.

Modern biomedicine offers only antihistamines, steroids, nasal decongestants all with side effects. Herbal formulas are effective with truly rare side effects.
