Common Mental Symptoms of Persons of Allergic Constitutions

Common Mental Symptoms of Persons of Allergic Constitutions

Dear friends, we come across many patients who suffer from allergies of one sort or another to common foods and substances such as tomato, sulphur drugs, aspirin, house dust, milk, wheat, curd, pulses, and the like. Allergic reactions occur when the immune system responds to these foreign substances, such as pollen, bee, animal products, venom or pet dander. These allergies may cause the sufferer to feel embarrassed or other emotional responses in addition to their physical symptoms. When homeopaths speak of an "allergic constitution,"  we refer to a person who is susceptible to allergens or has a history of allergies. 

The immune system produces antibodies. Some of these antibodies protect the body from unwanted invaders that cause sickness or an infection. The immune system makes antibodies that identify the particular allergen as harmful.  When people come into contact with the allergen, the immune system reacts with inflammation of the skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system. The severity of allergies varies from person to person and can range from minor irritation to anaphylaxis, which is a potentially life-threatening emergency. 

Some patients complain of headache, eye redness, hay fever, atopic dermatitis, sneezing, insect bite allergy, swelling of lips, difficulty breathing, skin irritation, pains anywhere in the body, irregular bowel movements, joint pains, anaphylaxis - a severe whole body reaction which may lead to shock and possibly death.

Test and Diagnosis: A physician needs to ask detailed questions about signs and symptoms, perform a physical exam and take the patient's history and ask the patient to keep a detailed diary of the foods eaten until you narrow down a possible allergic trigger if they haven't already discovered one. Check and monitor the vital signals and carry out a skin test. The pricked skin is exposed to small amounts of the proteins found in potential allergens and will develop a raised bump (hive) at the test location on the skin, which indicates an allergy to that substance. Allergy specialists usually are best equipped to perform and interpret allergy skin tests.

A blood test measures the immune system's response to a specific allergen by measuring the amount of allergy-causing antibodies in your bloodstream, known as immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. The detailed report will indicate possible allergens. 

In our homeopathic Materia medica we can review some common mental symptoms shared by allergic people. Consider Apis, Natrum carb, Iodium, Tuberculinum, Dulcamara and Calcarea carb as top remedies, however, many more may be helpful. 

We may find that persons with allergies appear angry, quarrelsome and violent in nature and may easily become offended.  They have various types of anxieties, with capriciousness well marked, and often feel confused with difficult concentration, forgetful, with mind prostration and weakness of memory. These people suffer from different types of delusions and fears, exhibit conscientious about trifles, emotional despair, easily discouraged and discontented with almost everything. Other mood traits include gloomy, weepy, sad, morose, excitable, dull, lazy, irritable even leading to insanity, lasciviousness and loquacity. The indifference in attitude varies in intensity from patient to patient.  Extreme sensitivity of the system can be noticed with sensitiveness to noises.  Their restlessness often comes out during the night when their body attempts to rest and the subconscious mind becomes active.

The above post is the mental state of few medicines which are known to be the most sensitive, Your constitution may belong to other medicines who are not so excited, angry and restless. The mental state yes of course reflects a lot.

I have had severe allergic reactions to pollens, or something which coincides with pollen season. When I have had this, I don't feel angry or excited, rather just try to "be" ! The above description sounds more like my mother whom I live with, who no longer has the severe allergic reactions.. Makes me wonder if the "mental state" is present when the skin, respiratory symptoms are suppressed. I have not had this state when my symptoms are not present.
