Allergies are an abnormal reaction by a person’s immune system against a normally harmless substance. During an allergic process, the cells release chemicals such as histamine and leukotrienes; resulting in allergic symptoms (runny nose, watery eyes, itching throat, and cough). The immune system produces proteins known as IgE antibodies that protect the body from unwanted invaders. Allergies can cause symptoms that involve your skin, sinuses, airways and or digestive system. The severity of allergies varies from person to person and can range from minor irritation to anaphylaxis , a potentially life-threatening emergency. If this happens, please go to the emergency room immediately!
Acupuncture Treats Allergies
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), including a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, cupping and or tuina is a safe, natural and effective treatment for allergies. This promotes the healthy flow of Qi (vital energy) that travels through the meridians of the body, interpreting the cause of allergic rhinitis and strengthens the immunity. Treatments often include lifestyle and dietary recommendations.
