An allergy is the hyper immune reaction of a person to some proteins in our environment, such as those found in pets, dust mites, pollens, food proteins which though normally harmless for other person. In other words the immune system of an allergic persons is hypersensitive to some substances whereas the same substances does not put any impact on the immune system of a normal person when do expose to them. In our daily life we are exposing lot of foreign substances in the form of chemicals,pollutants, dusts, viruses, pollens, some food proteins which act as an antigen or allergens. Those antigens or allergens when enters inside body our immune cells recognize them and eliminate them out. Our immune cells like T cells (Tlymphocyte) and B cells (B lymphocytes) play the major role to perform this task. In a normal person when those antigen or allergen enter inside the body the immune system eliminate them without reacting anyway, but an allergic person of hypersensitive immune system reacts to those substances vigorously. A person of hypersensitive immune system,the B cells induces the inflammatory tissue reaction called allergic reaction when comes in contact to those antigens or allergens. The B cells of a sensitized immune system when detect any such foreign protein or antigen produce certain substances called IgE antibody.
In our body there are some cells called mastcells. Those mast cells contain some granules called histamine and heparin. Aroundthe surface of mast cells numerous receptor are found called FC receptors towhich the IgE antibody binds. When any allergen invade the body the B cell identifiesthe invader and produces antibodies IgE those flows and attach with the FCreceptor of mast cell surface. The antigen or allergen further binds with thoseIgE antibodies over mast cell surface. This way of antigen and antibodyfixation stimulate the mast cell to releases the histamine content around thetissues. Those histamines when comes in contact to the surrounding tissue bindsto the histamine receptors present over the tissue surface and startsdeveloping allergic reactions. The symptoms of sneezing, runny nose, rednessand itching of eyes nose are nothing but the outcomes result of histamine andtissue reaction.
So here the conventionaltreatment helps to check the allergic symptoms by blocking the histaminereceptor so the histamine cannot find the space to bind the tissue surface sothe allergic reaction does not take place. But thosemedications give a short term effect of few hours. Again when the person exposes to thoseallergens stats developing same symptoms and need the same medication again tostop the reaction. As we have to live in the same environment so it is quite difficultto keep away us from those allergens at all.
So for a long term curative treatment,it is required to rectify the hypersensitiveness nature of the immune system ofthe allergic person so that he will not react adversely even when exposing tothe same allergens which he was reacting earlier.
The homeopathy medicines help in this regards by rectifying or modifying the sensitive nature of the immune system of an allergic persons. It is because homeopathy medicines are not only selected from the clinical symptoms of any disease but also from the physical,mental, psychological and emotional features of a person for selection of medicines so it give impact on all systems of the body including immune system. That’s the way it helps to modify the hypersensitive nature immune system of an individual to perform normal way like a healthy person. Homeopathy treatment for allergy gives wonderful result to the patients to prevent as well as cure the allergic constitution permanently.
