If you’re reading this, then it’s likely that you are one of the 10 million people in the UK that suffers from hay fever. It’s also likely that you’d be really happy if you didn’t have to suffer anymore! This post will tell you everything you need to know about my Hay Fever Prevention Plan including:
- The structure of the Hay Fever Prevention Programme;
- What you need to do to make sure you get the results you want and;
- How much it will cost you to say goodbye to your hay fever.
What is the Hay Fever Programme?
The Programme is a structured treatment plan, but because it’s homeopathic, it’s individualised to who you are and how your hay fever symptoms manifest. To get the full effect of the Programme you ideally need to repeat it twice before your usual hay fever season begins. Ideally this would be in the Winter and then again in the early Spring. However, most people don’t start thinking about their hay fever until this time of year, so it can be condensed so that you can start to get the benefits this year. The Programme is 5 weeks long, and you need to repeat that twice. If you book your appointment right away you can do these two repeats of the programme right away – so one appointment now in mid-March, and then another in 5 or 6 weeks. If you’re reading this after mid-March, then there are other ways of condensing the Programme so do still get in touch. As well as the appointments with me, you also get support during the hay fever season, with an extra ‘as and when’ remedy to use as necessary. You will also need a personalised blend of homeobotanical drops to use as part of the treatment.
At your first appointment, I will find out all about your hay fever – when it first started, how you have treated it, what your symptoms were in the last hay fever season and any key triggers for your symptoms. I will also ask about your medical history and a bit about you as a person. It’s very much like a normal initial consultation with me, but focused on your hay fever. I allow up to 90 minutes for this appointment. At the end of this appointment you will take away the remedies that you will need to take during the 5 weeks following your consultation.
The next appointment is shorter. I will see how you are generally and work out if I need to make any changes to the individualised part of your Programme. It is similar to a normal follow up appointments and I allow 30-45 minutes. At the end of this appointment you will take away the remedies that you will need to take during the 5 weeks following your consultation and your ‘as and when’ remedy to use during the hay fever season whenever you need it.
During the hay fever season, you should expect to have a big improvement in your hay fever symptoms. It is likely that you will still have some bad days (and possibly a bad week if you’ve suffered from hay fever for many years), however the intensity and the duration of the symptoms will have reduced. You can use your ‘as and when’ remedy whenever you need to. I will also check up on you to see how you are getting on and if you need any additional support.
What do I need to do?
For the Hay Fever Programme to give you the very best results, you need to commit to the Programme and make sure that you take your prescribed remedies as specified. You will need to take each remedy in the morning and the evening every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday for the 5 weeks. The remedies are easy to take – I will give you a set of small envelopes, each one labelled with a day of the week, which will hold several small medicated sugar pills. On the specified day, you will need to take one sugar pill in the morning, and another in the evening. It’s that simple. The sugar pills dissolve under your tongue and they even taste nice! You just need to remember to avoid food and strong flavours (tooth paste, coffee etc) 15 minutes either side of taking the remedy. I will provide you with a remedy sheet which tells you what to take and when which you can also use to tick off each remedy as you take it. You might want to set up reminders in your mobile calendar too – whatever will work for you.
The Hay Fever Programme is designed to be preventative. This means that it is the out of season appointments that get you the best benefits in the hay fever season, but as I said, it can be condensed if you’ve left nearer to the hay fever season before getting in touch. It is recommended that you continue the programme for a few years to keep reducing the intensity and duration of your symptoms in the hay fever season – this is especially the case if you do the condensed version of the Programme.
How much does the Hay Fever Prevention Programme cost?
There are two ways you can pay for the Programme – 'pay as you go' or as a Hay Fever Package:
- 'Pay as you go'. The charge is just my normal appointment fee. If you are not a current patient then you will need one initial consultation and one follow up consultation plus your allergy homeobotanical medicine (currently £20.00 per bottle).
- As a Package. This means that you pay now for the whole package. The benefit to you is that you commit to the whole treatment and you get your homeobotanicals for free, along with full support during the hay fever season (including any other acute remedies that you may need at no extra charge). Contact me for more details.
- Current Patients. If you already see me as a patient then you will will just have two follow up appointments that are focused on your hay fever. You can still benefit from a Package deal.
What’s in it for me?
You can stop relying on anti-histamines. They don’t stop your hay fever, they just suppress the symptoms. At least they are supposed to, but many people find that they become less effective as time goes on. As they are available without a prescription we tend to forget that they are a powerful drug with a whole host of possible side-effects, especially if used long-term.
You get to enjoy summer again! Check out these comments from some of the people that have benefitted from this Hayfever Prevention Programme:
"Your hay fever programme has been amazingly effective! For the first time ever I can take the kids to the park in the evening during the hay fever season. I’m really pleased. It’s fantastic!”
“When a friend suggested to try homeopathy for my hay fever I was sceptical. I had tried various alternative therapies before with varying degrees of success. To my great surprise I was practically symptom free after one course of targeted treatment for my hay fever related asthma!”
"Thanks for your wonderful hay fever remedies. Thanks to them, I have not had ANY hay fever at all this year. It is as if there were no pollens in the air this summer!”
