According to the FDA, chronic seasonal allergies affect more than 26 million Americans. Those experiencing only mild symptoms may number well over 50 million, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. There are several homeopathic remedies that may relieve your seasonal allergies.
Homeopathic remedies can relieve allergy symptoms such as sneezing and coughing without harmful side effects.
According to the American Institute of Homeopathy, in a 2001 clinical trial, Galphimia was shown to be effective in treating seasonal allergies induced by pollen.
If your runny nose and watery eyes get worse at night, Euphrasia, known by its herbal name “eyebright,” is recommended.

Certain supplements, when used in combination with homeopathic medicines, can boost your immune system and strengthen your body’s ability to resist allergies. These include quercitin, selenium, vitamin C and probiotics.
