Does taking a walk in early spring cause itchy eyes and a runny nose? Or perhaps itchy ears? Does your skin flare up when you lay on grass? Allergies can be a nuisance and finding lasting effective treatment can be a problem.
Acupuncture is a safe, natural, and noninvasive way to treat your allergies. Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by a certain substance. These can include, but are not limited to pollen, dust, mold, pet dander, foods, and medication.
Conventional medicine normally takes the form of decongestants, antihistamine medicine and inhalers and often only target the symptoms, providing limited relief.
Acupuncture works differently in that it not only targets the signs and symptoms of your allergies, but also addresses the underlying root cause of why your body has repeated allergic responses.
Acupuncture helps to regulate and rebalance the body as it acts on the nervous system to release chemicals in your body that reduce your allergies. If you are wanting a natural and holistic way to treat your allergies or want to avoid any conventional medicine, then acupuncture may be for you.
