Eyebright for Itchy Eyes
Francisca (Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France) on 09/24/2010: This spring, after huge problems with plane trees, my allergies got far worse, including my eyes which were itching 24/7 and only getting worse. During a trip to the UK I went to a health shop where I got quite a few supplements which I am testing right now, including Euphrasia (Eyebright). I had never heard of it but I have to say that I felt the results right away. I have been taking it for 10 days now, 20 drops in the morning before eating and 20 drops at night before going to bed and till now I am mostly ok. These ones are from Dr. Vogel. As far as the other symptoms are concerned (itching throat, running nose and sneezing a lot especially at night) I am still waiting to see the full results. During the day I am ok, the nights are the worst but if I manage to keep it all under control I will post here what I have been taking.
