Allergies and Traditional Chinese Medicine

By Vikki Nestico

With the official start of spring just weeks away, there’s no better time than now to consider using popular forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As mother nature comes out of its state of dormancy, flowers and trees will blossom and the snowy landscape will be replaced with flowing green grass. This massive change comes with an unwelcome side effect: ALLERGIES!

According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), approximately 50 million people in the United States suffer from seasonal allergies. When exposed to pollen or other plant allergens, the individual may develop a runny nose, nasal congestion, eye redness, headache, sore throat, and other related symptoms.

Whether you suffer from mild, moderate or severe seasonal allergies, acupuncture can help. This centuries-old technique can restore your body’s flow of energy while stimulating its self-healing mechanism.

The best time to come in for treatment of allergies is before they start. Getting the immune system in shape is key before it’s bombarded by these allergens. So the time is now! Shake off those winter blues and get ready for SPRING!
