My daughter is so sensitive to cats that even being in a room with someone who has been around cats makes her sneeze! She recently broke out in hives during a tutoring session because her tutor had on a sweater she had worn while petting her cat. Besides the obvious allergy testing, what else do you suggest?
A compromised immune system brought on by allergies needs to be restored. Use of the following Pekana homeopathic remedies can be helpful in restoring health and balance. Follow dosage and other remedy guidelines as provided on the bottle(s) or as given in How to Facilitate the Healing of Chronic and Systemic Disease by Almine.
Important: When using these remedies, take them either one hour before or after food and always use plastic spoons or cups for dosing (do not use metal spoons).
- Apo-Hepat: assists to rebuild the liver and support the immune system.
- Proaller: may be taken 5 to 6 times a day, 3 to 4 hours apart for acute symptoms of allergy and immune system fatigue resulting from allergies; otherwise use 3–4 times per day.
- Itires: supports the lymph system and may be used for lymph congestion and problems in the nose, throat and lungs. Use the homeopathic remedy 20 drops, three or four times a day.
Remove other stressors from the environment such as phenols found in almost all perfumed products, soaps, shampoos etc. Eliminate smoke, caffeine and other substances in your environment as well as mold and mildew.
Animal dander is often problematic. If you choose to own a pet be meticulous about where it sleeps and bathe the pet often to remove dander and loose hair, vacuum frequently and avoid the use of carpets in the home.
Allergies represent irritation. Look at the foods or things in your environment that irritate or have become intolerable to you. If there are problems with other people, the book Journey to the Heart of God has relevant information on conflict resolution.
