Does spring bring with it the miseries of hay fever? If you have the yearly running nose, watering eyes, and sneezing problems, it can spoil anything from football to a walk in the local park. You can control these symptoms with conventional medicine but as soon as it wears off, the problem returns, often year after year.
Dr Dilis Clare’s herbal medicine is helpful in managing hayfever symptoms but it also has value added. Over the last 10 years Dr Clare has treated people regularly for hayfever and related immune problems. The herbs work on the nourishment of the mucous membranes and by dampening the immune response. “The combination of both of these actions lead to year on year reduction of the impact of seasonal immune problems,” Dr Clare explained.
Preferably, hayfever tea should be taken from one month before your symptoms start but it can be taken at any time. Allergy support tonic can be used in place of or in addition to hayfever tea. Dr Clare’s herbs can be used very simply as infusions (teas ) which are made up once daily and taken hot or cold, or can be used as tinctures (alcohol extracts ).
