T he term allergy was used in the early 20th century to describe an unnatural – in the sense of excessive or pathological – reaction of the organism, to substances of foreign origin, natural or chemical.
Allergy, regardless of season, may appear only on the skin (allergic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, eczema etc.), it may be apparent on the eyes in the form of conjunctivitis, or it may refer to the upper respiratory tract with allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis.
Finally it may also appear to the lower respiratory tract too, with allergic bronchitis and bronchial asthma. The defensive mechanism of the organism is activated when in contact with the said substances, that are mainly of protein origin, which the organism cannot recognise as part of its structure. In an allergic reaction the activation of the organism (immune system) is in a sense out of control and this results in the generation of allergic symptoms. At this point the intervention of Classical Homoeopathy Medicine is deeper, faster, more effective and permanent in the treatment of allergies, the full elimination of symptoms and the causes that generate them and fully capable to tone and reinforce the immune system, so as to treat the environment again as natural and friendly to the organism.
Thus homoeopathy is a treatment of choice for allergic diseases. Yet the challenge of Homoeopathy is that every organism is a special case that needs one and only medicine to help the specific patient and increase their levels of health. As for the difficult work of the Homoeopathy physician, it is to choose the suitable medicine for the specific patient. And this is the reason why, the Homoeopathy physician, in order to have good results, should have profound knowledge of this mild yet substantial and holistic therapeutic method of the 21st century.
