Battle Allergies The Homeopathic Way
A very common condition seen now-a-days in mostly every household. From children to adults many fall prey to this condition some or the other time.

The immune system produces antibodies. When suffering from allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen (allergens are substances that cause allergies) as harmful, despite it not being so and hence when the person comes in contact with the allergen, the immune system’ reaction can lead to skin inflammation, sinus/air ways affection and or digestive disturbances. Pollen grains, dust mites, insect stings, pet dander (fur), certain food items (especially nuts, fish, milk and milk products, wheat or gluten) and chemical substances are some examples of common allergens.
