Hayfever & Allergic Rhinitus
Hay fever is a common allergic condition that affects up to one in five people at some point in their life, says the NHS. It is estimated that there are more than 10 million people with hay fever in England and usually begins in childhood, but can occur at anytime. The symptoms of hay fever are caused when we have an allergic reaction to pollen. This fine powder contains proteins that can cause the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses (small air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead) to become swollen, irritated and inflamed.
And how do these sufferers often get by? They take antihistamines and other drugs to ease the problem. Hypnotherapy & NLP is widely known to be able to reduce or completely resolve this response and is recognised by many Hypnotherapy regulating bodies such as the British Institute of Hypnotherapy & NLP.

Dust & Animal Allergies
It is estimated that around one in four of the UK population suffers from an allergy at some time in their lives, and research suggest that numbers are increasing. Each year the number of affected people increases by an estimated 5%, with as many as half of all those affected being children.
The immune system can be heavily influenced by our unconscious mind, and it is thought that many allergic reactions may have a fundamentally psychological trigger. It may be possible for example for someone to unconsciously trigger an immune response as a way of escaping from a stressful situation. This process is involuntary in the conscious sense and can be seen as a fundamental survival mechanism. Hypnotherapy & NLP can be utilised to identify and remove this conditioned response behaviour.
Not to be confused with a food allergy, which you should always consult your GP to discount, intolerance is created when our bodies respond to a food by perceiving it as a threat, often causing inflammation (pain or discomfort in the digestive system) or discomfort (excessive amounts of wind). When this occurs and no medical reason can be found as to why then hypnotherapy & NLP can be used to re-programme your bodies response to the food in question. There are many ways to reduce or resolve the symptoms, which includes medication & avoidance, but if you are looking for a natural way to improve your symptoms then consider the benefits. Hypnotherapy & NLP are widely recognised for the ability to make changes to your unconscious mind when it has become stuck, often as a result of a traumatic event that the conscious mind has long forgotten.
