Spring has arrived, and so have seasonal allergies — acupuncture to the rescue!
If you suffer from allergies, you are most certainly not alone.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, about 26 million Americans endure chronic seasonal allergies, while the number of people with milder symptoms may be as high as 40 million.
An allergy is an immune system disorder that occurs when your body has an inflammatory, hypertensive reaction to what is a normally benign substance, like pollen. Common conditions such as hay fever, eczema, hives and asthma are actually allergic reactions.
Most symptoms become apparent within 5 or 10 minutes of exposure to the allergens and typically include sneezing, dry and unproductive coughing, wheezing, itchy sensations on the roof of the mouth or at the back of the throat, swollen sinuses leading to a stuffy nose and headaches, a runny nose, itching, watery and reddened eyes, reduced sense of smell and taste, and disturbed sleep. That can certainly make it hard to concentrate and perform daily tasks, especially at work or school.
Safe, Effective Treatment of Spring Allergies
Most over-the counter drugs treatments aim to reduce the discomfort of the symptoms temporarily, and they often come with negative side effects. But not acupuncture. Acupuncture treats allergies safely and effectively with no side effects. It is one of the major holistic therapies used for thousands of years to address the underlying energetic relationships in the body that makes those allergic reactions happen.
Acupuncture treatments can give immediate relief from the symptoms, and further, they can address the variety of underlying causes. With acupuncture treatments allergy symptoms will ultimately stop, and the reactiveness will calm down.
Try acupuncture! Enjoy life, without the allergic reactions, and have a happy Spring!
