An allergy is a condition that occurs due to the exaggerated reaction of the immune system following exposure to certain substances.
Alternative Ayurvedic medications aim to provide natural allergy relief by stablising the response of the immune system.
The substance producing the allergic response are called allergens. The most common allergens include dust mites, pollens, molds, foods, animal proteins, and even medications. However, the patients suffering from allergies develop the symptoms when exposed to different allergens.
Though recognizing and avoiding the allergens can help prevent the symptoms of allergies to a great extent, the wide range of allergens and the varying susceptibility of patients to them forms a major obstacle in the treatment of this disease. However, complementing the treatment with herbal medicine for skin allergy can help to prevent the allergic response to a range of allergens by modulating the reaction of the immune system.
Ayurvedic treatments for allergies are based on the use of herbs that are considered to posses natural antihistamine agents, which may prevent the development of these symptoms. Regular use of these herbal natural allergy supplements can help to regulate the functions of the immune system and aim to prevent its exaggerated response to the allergens, thus reducing the frequency and intensity of the attacks of allergic diseases.
