 Hay Fever. by H. A. Roberts
Hay fever belongs to the class of so-called allergic diseases, which manifest local symptoms of the disturbed equilibrium of health apparently as the direct result of contact with these irritating substances, such as certain pollen, odors, foods, etc.
It is true that we occasionally find the hay fever picture actively exhibited in an otherwise apparently healthy person, but upon inquiry we are often able to trace the course of certain suppressions from early childhood ; and back of that we usually find an inherited tendency (the stigmatic or miasmatic disease tendencies).
Thus we find as the basis for hay fever a background of inheritance usually sycotic, although it may be so far removed from the active stages that we can trace its presence only by the disease tendencies -infiltrative in nature- exhibited at different periods of life.
