Allergic Rhinitis or Hay Fever: Homeopathy, What Works
- A series of studies by Dr. M. Weisenauer
investigated a single remedy, Galphimia glauca, for seasonal allergic
rhinitis, or hay fever. A total of nearly six hundred people were involved
in the trials, which showed a statistically significant improvement in
symptoms among people using homeopathy.
- Two other studies of nasal allergies were
conducted by noted clinician Dr. David Reilly and associates of Scotland
in 1985. Their pilot study, involving thirty-nine patients, found
statistically significant results in favor of the homeopathic remedy. In a
similar, larger study by Reilly in 1996, patients using homeopathy showed
a statistically significant decrease in symptoms.
- From the Harvard Medical School, a 1995 study by
Dr. Mark Abelson indicated that Similisan produced a statistically
significant reduction in redness and itching among allergy patients.
