Natural remedy for pollen allergy for 2 year old child and adult?
Q: My 2 yr old daughter and I are suffering terribly from pollen allergies in FL. I prefer not to use Benadryl or Claritin for her symptoms, but she desperately needs a good night’s rest. Are there any homeopathics, like unda numbers that we can take to get rid of the drainage, cough, sore throat, etc?
A: Good for you for deciding to avoid toxic medications for allergies! There are several effective things I can recommend for you and your 2 year old girl for her allergies.
For your 2 year old:
Zinc C CWS drops – these easy to give zinc & vitamin C drops can be helpful to elevate her immune system and reduce histamine levels in her body. Give her 5 drops, twice daily either directly into her mouth or put in a cup of water. This is sweetened with a little glycerine and goes down easy.
Aller-Care by ChildLife – 1/2 tsp. 3 x daily – this is also sweetened with glycerine, so it is easy to give.
HLC MindLinx Probiotics by Pharmax
GUNA Allergy Treat by Guna – this homeopathic can be used to reduce symptoms as they occur or to lessen them.
For her age I would recommend this:
Dosage: 5 drops 3 times a day. If a reaction is occurring: 5 drops every 30 minutes for 2 hours. Would recommend putting the drops in a bit of water.
For yourself and other adult family members:
HistaEze by DFH – a powerful herbal remedy for seasonal and environmental allergies.
Allergiplex by Unda – a homeopathic tablet for seasonal allergies.
HLC MindLinx Probiotics by Pharmax 1/2 teaspoon per day.
These natural supplements would be a good start to get both of you feeling better. Be patient, as it may take a few days on these products before you see some improvement!
