Rational: It is desirable first to first desensitize allergy before suppressing symptoms with steroids, mast cell stabilizers and antihistamines which are contrary to the healing process, contain risk of adverse reactions/drug interactions, and should be utilized as a last resort. NatO drops contain micro dilutions of ingredients which are known to cause allergy if ingested in large (toxic) doses. The body reacts by desensitization.
Differential advantages: Homeopathic eye drops have the advantage of relieving the symptoms by addressing the underlying cause, rather than masking symptoms. Side effects are unheard of.
Homeopathic mechanism of action: While the exact mechanism of action is not presently understood, homeopathic medicines are thought to gently trigger the bodies natural healing response. Homeopathic medicine is based on a system of treatment proven effective by over 200 years of clinical use.
Suggested Usage: One or two drops in each eye as often as the symptoms indicate. For example, with extreme allergy symptoms prescribe exaggerated dosing were the drops might be used hourly in the beginning and usage decreased as the condition improves until drops are no longer needed. Reapply drops at the very first sign of symptoms returning. The patient should start using the drops prophylactically two weeks prior to the allergy season.
