Spring Fever – Hay Fever – Herbal Solutions


If the sight, or even thought of pollen laden trees and flowers fills you with dread about the months to come, help is at hand. Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as Hay Fever, is amenable to treatment with Herbal Medicine at The Healing Clinic with Donald Purves, Traditional Herbalist.

Certain airborne allergens like pollen grains can cause a Type I Hypersensitivity, or allergic reaction, in people with Allergic Rhinitis. Typical symptoms are sneezing, runny nose, itchy watering eyes. You may be a sufferer every year from this malady. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer if you prepare early.

Now is not too late to book a holistic herbal treatment from Donald Purves. He will assess the extent to which your body tissues are predisposed to Hay Fever:

  • There may be congestion leading to damp heat and tissue irritability.
  • There may be nervous tension blocking the flow of energy and leading to local congestion
  • You may have poor digestion or be eating inflammatory foods
    • you may or may not be allergic to certain foods.

Donald’s herbs can address these imbalances and make your body less likely to react.

Should you be assailed by full blown hay fever symptoms, all is not lost. Acute herbal remedies can be provided to manage the symptoms. However, preparation and prevention are the best, most holistic, solutions so book your appointment today with Donald Purves.
