Homeopathy is also used for allergy treatment and prevention.
Although few studies have examined the effectiveness of specific homeopathic therapies, professional homeopaths may consider the following remedies for allergy treatment especially allergic rhinitis. Before prescribing an allergy treatment, homeopaths take into account a person's constitutional type. A constitutional type is defined as a person's physical, emotional, and psychological makeup. An experienced homeopath assesses all of these factors when determining the most appropriate treatment for each individual based from their knowledge and experience.
Allium cepa (raw onion) - allergy treatment for frequent sneezing, a lot of irritating nasal discharge and tearing eyes. The person tends to thirst frequently.
Euphrasia (eyebright) - allergy treatment for bland nasal discharge, with stinging, irritating tears; a suitable person for this remedy has worse nasal symptoms when lying down
