10 tips to ease your Hayfever

Spring at last… This weekend the clocks change, the birds are busy building their nests and we're already beginning to see some regular sunshine.

Yippee, say most of us! Except the hayfever sufferers. With trees budding, green shoots poking their heads up and pollen floating in the air, people are now getting the first hints of itchy eyes, runny noses and sniffles and sneezes. I'm getting at least one call a day from someone requesting help for their hayfever.

As well as using homeopathic tinctures to de-sensitise people to the pollens that trigger their hayfever and giving them tablets to match their specific symptoms (see special offer below), I also suggest these 10 easy self-help tips to ease their hayfever.

1. Take 2g+ Vitamin C (it raises immunity); omega-3 fish oils (they reduce the inflammatory response); and bromelain (a natural anti-inflammatory).

2. Eat local honey all year round - it contains pollen from your area so you become de-sensitised to it.

3. Use an ioniser in your bedroom.

4. Avoid going out early evening/mid-morning when the pollen count is at its peak.

5. Smear a little Vaseline in the nostrils to give an extra barrier to pollen grains.

6. Wear wraparound sunglasses to shield eyes from pollen.

7. Air bedlinen in early mornings when pollen count is at its lowest.

8. Get a pollen filter for your car, or have your existing one replaced.

9. Avoid going out in the early evening and mid-morning when the pollen count is at its peak.

10. Keep windows closed when there is a lot of pollen in the air - this can reduce exposure to pollen by a factor of 10,000.

This year I'm offering half-price treatment for hayfever sufferers if you take part in my research to prove how effective homeopathy can be for treating hayfever. All you have to do is fill in a form once a month through your hayfever season with a score for how bad your symptoms are.

Initial consultation: £30 for adults, £22.50 for children (incl remedies).

Follow-up appointments: £22.50 for adults, £17.50 for children (incl remedies).

De-sensitising: from £15 (but usually no more than £30).

Full details are on my website (, or give me a call so I can explain further (01590 624020). And check out my YouTube video coming soon.
