Is acupuncture effective on allergies?
The onset of spring season brings that of allergy season as well. This is majorly because of the blooming of new flowers resulting into abundant quantity of pollen in blowing wind. Pollens are quite a problem for those suffering from allergies related to respiratory system. Runny nose, sneezing, itchy throat, nasal congestion, cough and watery eyes are some of the symptoms of allergy caused due to pollens. This is similar to cold but more or less like a clockwork as it longs only till the season does.
But, pollens are not meant to bug anyone. They help plants to reproduce after all. So, one should be prepared to enjoy the spring season without any fear of pollens and this can be possible with the help of some reliable treatment that can protect your body against pollen allergy. Acupuncture is considered as one of the common treatments for controlling allergy symptoms. Though, there are many beliefs that it doesn’t remove the root cause of allergy but only reduces the reactivity of body against it. This makes you depend less on medication and thus enjoy your summers and spring more.
The administration of acupuncture is usually carried out during the season by our therapeutic center. The treatment is usually started with the beginning of allergic symptoms and carried on for weeks or months for the entire season depending on the severity of allergy. Our treatment makes patients get rid of anti histamines they take for the entire season to keep pollen allergy symptoms away. As soon as the symptoms are somewhat under control, patients observe reduced reactivity of their body to pollens and also an improved energy level as they are no more consuming anti histamines which sap energy from body for their functioning. Besides, their immune system is no longer requiring much energy to react against allergy.
Hay fever or allergic rhinitis is an example of misplaced immunity. In this kind of allergy, patients often suffer from many secondary infections or are highly prone to them. These infections include chronic sinusitis, conjunctivitis, cold etc. One advantage of acupuncture in this kind of allergy is that it prevents the body from such secondary infections.
So with the onset of spring season one must not panic and consider consulting our acupuncture therapists who are specialized experts. One of the major reasons why you should go for acupuncture is its being natural, drug free and safest method to keep away the seasonal allergy symptoms effectively.
