Homeopathic Remedies for Peanut Allergy

 Homeopathic Remedies for Peanut Allergy

Caution: Nut Allergies can be life-threatening, kindly consult your physician before using any homeopathy medicine. A food item as simple as a peanut can trigger an allergy in some people. Allergy basically refers to an abnormal exaggerated immune response to a substance (or allergen) in an individual who is allergic towards the specific allergen. When the allergic reaction is life-threatening, it is referred to as Anaphylaxis. Peanut intake leading to such an allergic response is termed Peanut Allergy. Here the allergen is peanut and the person in whom eating a peanut excites a reaction is allergic towards peanuts. The Homeopathic remedies for peanut allergy are of great help in the treatment of Allergy and work towards extracting the allergy from its root. These natural remedies strengthen the immune system and the severity of an allergic reaction is reduced.

Peanut Allergy is one of the most common food-related allergies. The symptoms of Peanut Allergy may emerge in three spheres. The first one is skin, where redness, swelling or urticarial eruptions appear. The second is gastro-intestinal symptoms with loose stool, vomiting, and cramps in the abdomen. The last sphere is the emergence of respiratory symptoms with wheezing, throat constriction, and difficulty in breathing. The severest symptoms with Anaphylaxis include reduced blood pressure, severe tightness or constriction of respiratory tract and loss of consciousness. The anaphylactic reaction may prove fatal if not treated in time.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for Peanut Allergy

Homeopathy aims at strengthening the immune system. These medicines, which are made of natural substances, help in modifying the immune response to peanut intake and makes it reach the optimum level. With the use of properly selected remedies, the severity of allergic reaction can be reduced with every subsequent attack until it is totally diminished in its entirety. They are recommended after taking proper case history of the patient. The mental, as well as physical and general symptoms, are taken into account to recommend the best remedy. However, in the case of a severe anaphylactic reaction caused by peanut intake, one should seek urgent medical help as the condition is life-threatening.

1. Apis Mellifica: For Peanut Allergy with Skin Reactions

Apis Mellifica is one of the best natural treatment for allergies arising on the skin following the intake of peanuts. The symptom guiding towards the use of Apis Mellifica is the appearance of large elevated wheals over the whole body after eating peanuts. Marked burning and stinging pains are felt in such wheals. The stinging burning in most cases gets worse with touch or pressure.  Most of the persons needing Apis Mellifica feel worse in a warm room. In such persons, going out in the cold open air is somewhat relieving. In a few persons, cold bathing seems to provide some relief. Apis Mellifica is a very successful remedy for treating urticarial wheals following peanut intake if these symptoms match. The body may also show swelling along with skin symptoms for using Apis Mellifica.

2. Rhus Tox: For Peanut Allergy with Skin Eruptions

Rhus Tox is a very beneficial natural medicine for treating uritcarial eruptions appearing in response to peanut intake. The most important guiding symptoms for using Rhus Tox are utmost restlessness with skin eruptions. The person needing Rhus Tox shows restlessness of the utmost degree, and cannot sit still in any place. He or she moves here and there in a random way. Another important feature indicating the selection of Rhus Tox is worsening of condition from cold air. Warmth provides relief to the person.

3. Nux Vomica: For Peanut Allergy with Stomach Problems

The symptoms that can be treated with Nux Vomica are nausea, vomiting, cramps in abdomen and loose stool. All the persons requiring Nux Vomica have a major complaint of cramps in abdomen with a constant urge to pass stool or poop. A little relief is afforded by passing stool, but the cramps are renewed soon after passing stool, so is the need to pass stool. The stool is passed out in a small quantity and the desire for stool is ineffectual and constant. Nausea and vomiting also appear along with cramps and loose stool.

    Hello Dr Shadows.
    I live in England and have a friend who’s 3 year old boy suffers from nut allergy and numerous other allergies including dairy milk. Conventional doctors have said is allergies are ‘off the scale’. As a therapist myself I feel powerless to help but said I would look into it. I am staying in Germany over Christmas to a few weeks and discovered that homeopathy is widely accepted and used on infants for various conditions.
    My question is in your expert opinion do you think homeopathy can help?
    There is a lot of claims on internet and I am slowly collating information to pass to his father. As I said I am alternative therapist myself so you can understand my mindset and concern.
    If you can take the time to reply with some advice it would be great. Many thanks. Steve
