Creating Waves of Awareness

Sternutation (Sneezing) and Homoeopathy




Sneezing is a sudden, forceful, involuntary burst of air through the nose and/or mouth.



Sneezing is caused by irritation to the mucous membranes of the nose or throat, can be very bothersome but is generally not a sign of a serious problem.

Common Causes

·        Allergy to pollen, mold, dander, dust (allergy or hay fever)

·        Virus infections (common cold, upper respiratory tract infections)

·        Opiate withdrawal

·        Corticosteroid inhalation



The most effective means of controlling sneezing caused by allergic diseases is avoiding exposure to the offending allergen (Removal of Causa Occasionalis).

Some suggestions to minimize exposure include:

·        Removing pets from the home to avoid animal dander

·        Changing furnace filters

·        Using air filtration devices to minimize the concentration of airborne pollens

·        Traveling to areas with low pollen counts during the critical periods

·        Even changing residence to eliminate a mold spore problem may be necessary.

For sneezing not caused by an allergy, the problem will disappear when the underlying disorder is cured.
