Warm weather is approaching and with it will come blooming flowers and plants — and also seasonal allergies. Are you being affected by seasonal allergies when there is warmer weather?
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help with seasonal allergies
Acupuncture treatments can help to help bring relief for seasonal allergies. Acupuncture can boost the immune system quickly. There are specific acupuncture points that can be used to help minimize allergies, colds, and flu and bring some needed relief. There is also an acupuncture point that can help reduce/get rid of phlegm. Focusing on this particular point helps rid your body of excess mucus.
Many allergy sufferers also find that medications become less effective over time and they end up having a host of unpleasant side effects
While it can seem easy – or certainly be tempting – to reach for ‘over-the-counter-advertised-on-TV’ allergy medications (typically anti-histamines and bronchodilators) — these might not always be the best choice. Many of these types of medications suppress a person’s immune system, and do nothing to alleviate the underlying issue. And something to really consider — do we really want to suppress our immune system?
While there are some very specific acupuncture points that can help with allergy issues, in general, all acupuncture points can help strengthen the immune system, regulate the body, and improve circulation. Getting acupuncture treatments, if you can even only manage to get them seasonally, can help the immune system to become stronger and can help a person to stay healthier.
