Allium Cepa

Allium Cepa

• Allergies • Hay Fever • Colds • Watery Eyes • Headaches

The effects of slicing onions and hay fever can feel very similar. If eyes are irritated and watery nasal discharge is hot enough to irritate the upper lip, Allium cepa can bring relief regardless if onions, allergens or local cold germs are in the air. Allium cepa acts swiftly to relieve eye, nose and throat irritation symptoms, as well as related headaches, hacking coughs and hoarseness. Its symptoms are often worse in cold damp weather and stuffy rooms.

* Required Fields

Allium cepa (red onion) Imagine standing in a warm stuffy room slicing strong onions, or in the goldenrod season (or whatever triggers your hay fever). Though irritating to the eyes, the tears usually don't burn, but if you chop long enough, the nose will burn and run - that's Allium cepa. Whether you get a Spring cold or a bout of hay fever, Allium cepa can bring great relief when hot watery nasal discharge makes the upper lip feel raw, and bland tears may stream down the cheeks, especially in damp cold weather.

A headache often starts soon after the nose and eyes start flowing, which may be followed by a hacking cough, hoarseness and a raw sore throat that sends pain to the ears on swallowing. Though cold air makes symptoms worse, people needing Allium cepa hate warm stuffy rooms. Oddly enough, its best patients will even crave a raw onion now and then.
