Dear Consultant

Myself, a married woman, aged 42, problem worsened for last 9 years.
Following is the explanation:
Please advise a very effetive remedy for excessive sneezing which starts anytime irrespective of season accompanied by irritation in throat and tingling sensation all along inside the neck. This might repeat many times during a month. No fixed time for such an attack.
Allopathic anti allergic medicines work for very temporary or no relief.
Please suggest a proven remedy considering it a case of severe and no improvement in problem day by day. Nose never gets blocked but sinus problem reflects always in the form of excessive watery discharge and unstoppable sneezing throughout the day and night. My 12 years daughter also suffers with same problem but not so frequently please suggest a remedy for her also.

Dear Kelly
Try the following Herbs.
1. Buy Pulmonary Officinalis tincture from a Homeopathy shop and take 10 drops 3 times in a day.
2. Eat Immunity booster herbs like Echinacea and Golden seal. These are available in Capsule form, take 1 capsule every day for 1 month. Also buy Asphaltum capsules. Tear one capsule and divide the dose into 4 parts. Take 2 small doses in a week.

Dear Kelly
Shekhar has given you the right advise. You may go with his advise. We would suggest you to go for yoga classes too. Do some breathing exercises on regular basis without any skip at least for 3 months. Yoga is very effective. It improves the blood circulation in our body and expels the impurities out of our body. Also buy a Jal Neti pot and do it under the guidance of a professional. For any more queries, please feel free to post a query on Herbpathy.

My son age 11 has enlarged adenoids. The ears are also getting affected again and again. We waited for quite a long time, but as they have not shrunk, had planned surgery this jan. Due to some unavoidable reasons surgery postponed for couple of months now after exam times.
Came across this site which seems to offer the sanest/balanced advices I have ever seen. No magic sureshot claims, therefore felt like posting query on internet for 1st time.
Are there ways adenoids could shrink at this age? We had gone for homeopathy when he was 4(his allergies had just started that time). But it kind of aggravated the situation. Don't know name of any other med homeopathy docs were giving but most of the times were giving pulsatilla200. It never worked for him. He has blocked nose or thick green discharge almost all the times ever since. Don't know if swimming in community pools caused it or cold flu related glue ear.
Would appreciate any tips although I know at this age probably not much will help. To save his hearing as well as him becoming fully asthamic, we have to opt for surgery although I feel allergies situation may/may not improve to that extent. Any suggestions??

Dear Rohan
We suggest to give him just one single dose of Calcarea Carb 10 M. This is a Homeopathy medicine and give him only 2 granules. Do not repeat the dose. Wait for 1 week and let us know the change. We will prescribe him according to his new symptoms.
