Hayfever
Herbal & Home Remedies Herbal Remedies Home Remedies

Hayfever is an allergy to pollen from trees, grass or weeds. It is sometimes called allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the lining of the nasal passages).

Allergies are extreme reactions to basically harmless substances. Hayfever comes on in the spring and summer when pollen levels are high.

Causes

 

So what actually causes hayfever and other allergies? When you make an immune response against a compound (in immunological terms called an antigen), one of the defences of the body is to produce antibodies. Antibodies are proteins that bind to foreign invaders allowing them to be quickly cleared.

The binding of antibodies to their particular antigen is incredibly specific. Certain types of antibody (called immunoglobulin E or IgE) can bind to various types of white blood cell and upon recognition of their specific molecule they send an activation signal to the cell. In the case of allergy this cell is the mast cell.

Antibody activation of mast cells is an important mechanism for the immune response against pathogen infection however certain individuals seem to be prone to making IgE antibody responses against normal harmless environmental antigens. Mast cell activation results in the release of histamine, the potent mediator behind those hayfever symptoms.
