Over half of us (53 per cent) suffer from hay fever and other allergies and in just under 30 years scientists estimate we might all be suffering from an allergy.
The really bad news is that people can suffer all year, with tree pollen starting as early as February, with grasses through the summer and mould spores right up to October. Hay fever sufferers reluctant to endure the potential drowsiness of traditional antihistamines (especially at exam time…) will be relieved to hear that homeopathic medicines really do work.*
Nelsons Pollenna has been formulated into easy to take tablets that contain a specially selected combination of natural remedies to bring soothing relief to the trials of sneezing, a runny nose, and itchy eyes and throat. The homeopathic ingredients are:
Allium cepa, or red onion, helps with irritation to the eyes using the homeopathic principle that like treats like – that is, a substance which in large doses produces the symptoms of a disease will, in small doses, cure that disease.
Euphrasia, or eyebright, is good for treating sneezing and eyes that water all the time.
Sabadilla helps relieve spasmodic sneezing with a runny nose.
For best results take Pollenna when hay fever symptoms first appear, suck or chew tablets at two hourly intervals for six doses, then three times daily until symptoms subside.
