Histaminum Hydrochloricum: A source of relief for allergies
When a person is exposed to an allergen, the immune system creates an organic nitrogen compound known as a Histamine.
Histaminum Hydrochloricum is a homeopathic remedy used for allergy relief to treat a variety of allergies, including hay fever, pollen, food allergies, breathing issues, nasal congestion, hives, and more.
A scientific study examining the use of homeopathic remedies for the treatment of allergic rhinitis found that over half of the individuals given Histaminum Hydrochloricum showed improvement in their symptoms.
Aside from your typical allergic reactions, Histaminum Hydrochloricum has also been used for relief from asthma and skin conditions like eczema.
One of the central tenets of homeopathy is “like cures like,” meaning an illness can be treated by the same substances that caused it. Thus, Histaminum Hydrochloricum is effective because it is a microdosed and significantly diluted substance that has the same effect as histamine in the body.
