Allergic Rhinitis is mainly caused due to an allergic reaction by any allergen like the pollen. Allergic Rhinitis can be characterized by headache, itchy eyes and throat, running nose with watery discharge and also occasional sneezing. According to Ayurveda, such allergies are thought to be caused by the hypersensitivity of the nervous system. Some of the other causes of Allergic Rhinitis include indigestion, inhalation of smoke and dust, staying awake late at night, sleeping during the daytime, exposure to really cold and chilly weather, an increase in sexual activity and also by the suppression of natural urges.

If we go by the Ayurvedic perspective Allergic Rhinitis is caused because of the toxins that are present in our body and also due to our low immunity. Accumulation of toxins aggravates the levels of Kapha in the body which in return gives rise to different symptoms of allergies.

But if you want to permanently resolve this allergy disorder, it is important that you make some dietary and lifestyle adjustments in addition to the strengthening of the immune system. Panchakarma has also been noted to be an effective means of treating Allergic Rhinitis.
