Peanut Allergy Cured by Peanuts?
In recent years, doctors have been using a simple variation of homeopathy to cure anaphylactic peanut allergies in children- small doses of powdered peanut.
Peanut Flour May Ease Peanut Allergy
Within homeopathy this approach is known as isopathy but when the small doses are further potentised to avoid all risk of anaphylaxis, they become truly homeopathic when prescribed for the individualised symptoms of the patient.
Tutorial 1 – The Law of Similars explains why this is so.
Potentised or not, the use of peanut to treat peanut allergy depends on the homeopathic principle of ‘like treats like’, and both approaches offer real hope for those anaphylactic to peanuts.
Note: While the treatment of an allergy by the potentised allergen often reduces a person’s sensitivity to that allergen,it but doesn’t correct the underlying imbalance that led to the sensitivity. Standard homeopathic treatment prescribed according to larger symptom totality (rather than just the symptoms related to the allergy) treats both allergy and imbalance.
