Homeopathic Remedies for Sneezing or Sternutation

Home Remedies for Sneezing

Sneezing or sternutation can be caused involuntarily by an irritation in the mucus membranes of the nasal passages or throat.  However it is not a really serious problem although it can be rather bothersome.  Some of the common causes for the sneezing problems include:

  • Allergy to mold, dust, dander or pollen
  • Virus infection such as the common cold or infections of the upper respiratory tract
  • Withdrawal symptoms after sudden stoppage of opiate drugs such as morphine, heroin, methadone, codeine, Dilaudid, Oxycontin, etc
  • Inhalation of corticosteroid

If sneezing is due to allergy or hay fever problems then the ideal and most effective treatment is to avoid or reduce exposure to the allergen causing the sneezing symptoms.  For sneezing that is not due to an allergy, treating the underlying disorder is an effective way of curing the sneezing problem.

Homeopathy is an effective treatment for seasonal allergy or hay fever as it has the capability to treat the immediate symptoms as well as eradicating recurrent attacks gradually each year.
