Allergic Rhinitis


Allergic rhinitis is the result of an overactive immune response, causing inflammation in the sinuses. Common symptoms include runny or stuffy nose, redness, sneezing, and swelling around the eyes and face. 

Special Considerations:



Allergic rhinitis is most often caused by overactive immune response to air born allergens like pollen and dust. 

Therapeutic Aims:

1. Reduce exposure to allergens.

Including food born and air borne.

2. Dampen overactive immune response.

Inhibit degranulation of mast cells, and modulate the immune system.

3. Relieve Congestion

  • Astringents

4. Support the lymphatic system.


  • Lymphatics
  • Depuratives

5. Tone the mucus membranes.
