If however, Hayfever is something you find yourself having to deal with year-in-year-out, then this is an indication its become a "Chronic" Condition for your body.
What do I mean by a Chronic Condition? A Chronic Condition is referred to as any long-standing illness where symptoms have been present for more than 4 weeks, any recurring symptoms from year to year or any symptoms where the recovery has not been "held" by well-prescribed Homoeopathic medicines.
When your body is experiencing a Chronic Condition, it's trying to tell you that things aren't quite "in-balance" and it needs some help. This is where Homoeopathy comes into play. A Chronic Homoeopathic medicine is then required to work on a "deeper" level for your body in order to establish balance again.
