Hay Fever: CAM Therapies for Specific Conditions

  • Hay fever remedies in the United States include the drugs ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. Also, the herb ephedra, which is similar to these products, can be effective. However, each of these substances can have negative side effects.

  • Dutch researchers recently reported positive results in treating hay fever with homeopathic medicines. Five well-designed studies all indicated the efficacy of homeopathic remedies in hay fever treatment.

  • Homeopathic treatment demonstrates efficacy in the treatment of hay fever. Several studies support this finding. In one study, approximately six hundred people were involved.

  • MAK-5, a supplement containing several herbs, is used to treat hay fever. This substance, which is used in Ayurvedic medicine, has been reported to be effective in several double-blind trials.
