Hayfever – I hate it.

My parents would go camping at the weekends, when I was a kid, and I remember screaming in agony as my eyes felt like they were cut to ribbons. Eventually they took me to the doctors. I was diagnosed when I was about 5 or 6. Since then I’ve tried all the tablets going, as well as sprays and herbal remedies.

Some years it gets so bad that I’ve taken a tablet in the morning, a herbal remedy at night, used a nose spray, and have taken homeopathic tablets too, all in the same day. Nothing seems to work 100%, and some things don’t work at all.

I got fed up with the tablets from the doctors as they had no affect whatsoever, apart from the big hole in my purse. The cheap tablets from the £ shop are just the same as the expensive ones. The homeopathic tablets are good, but seem to have no affect the following year. The nose spray doesn’t stop my eyes itching. The one herbal remedy I found particularly good is no longer being sold – presumably because it contained lobelia which is poisonous.

I’ve also tried drinking nettle tea and honey. These didn’t work either. In fact the only thing that worked 100% was living in South Africa for a few years. Didn’t suffer with it at all there. -it was the crime rate I was allergic to.

I had a tablet this morning. I’ve been sneezing at intervals. My nose has been running although not as bad as it could have been. Now my eye is itching. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrggghhh!

These aren’t the only symptoms of hayfever though. I think the worse one is how tired and exhausted it makes you feel. It’s the one thing that other people can’t understand and it’s the main symptom that can knock you off your feet. I’ve had countless days off school when I was a kid, and time off work as an adult because of hayfever. Feeling drained of all your energy and then suffering with a continually runny nose, itching eyes, sore throat, cough, well it just knocks you off your feet.

They’ve forecast rain over the weekend. My hayfever will still be there. Unfortunately it doesn’t disappear with the sun.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
