Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic Rhinitis also known as hay fever is a common allergic condition found in people with low immunity. Allergic Rhinitis is an allergic reaction to pollens and dust. It is classified into two types based on the period of occurrence. They can be cyclically occurring during seasonal changes or persistent throughout the year. Environmental factors play a role in the development of allergic rhinitis and the common allergens include dust mites, plant pollens and pets.

When a person is exposed to any of the allergens or dust, the inner lining of the nostrils obstructs the foreign particles from entering into the system. A sticky mucus is produced inside the nostrils that prevent the entry of the allergens. In the person with low immunity, this obstruction may not occur and the small particles in the air may enter the nasal passage causing irritation and inflammation.


Causes of Allergic Rhinitis

In Ayurveda, hypersensitivity of the nervous system and low immunity is considered as the cause of allergy in the body. This can be caused due to indigestion, inhalation of smoke and dust, lack of sleep in the night, drowsy throughout the daytime, exposure to cold air and the suppression of natural urges.

Symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis

Some common symptoms associated with allergic Rhinitis include:

  • Severe itchiness in the eyes and throat
  • Runny nose and sneezing
  • Tickling sensation and irritation in the nostrils
  • Headache and body ache
  • Watery eyes
  • Cough

Ayurveda Treatment for Allergy - Allergic Rhinitis 

According to Ayurveda, the presence of accumulated toxins in the body is the main cause of allergic rhinitis. Accumulation of toxins can occur from poor digestion and low immunity which inturn aggravates the levels of Kapha in the body and increases the risk of developing an allergy to various factors.
