Allergies have become far too common, affecting millions of people in the U.S. each year. People seek various types of relief including various medications and even shots. For some people these biomedical interventions might work while others may seek a more natural approach. The problem is with over the counter allergy medications, people become dependent upon them to alleviate their allergy symptoms. For some people, the allergy medications stop working overtime. There is good news that there isn’t just one way to treat allergies. Allergies don’t have to be a constant nuisance impacting one’s life due to various allergens in the environment. It’s possible to achieve relief that is lasting and not be subjected to having to make trips to the pharmacy for pharmaceuticals. People don’t have to be subject to pharmacy hours that prohibit purchasing certain allergy medications requiring identification. Acupuncture has proven to be effective in alleviating allergies and improve one’s response to allergens in the environment over time. The symptoms of cedar fever and other seasonal allergies can be significantly reduced through stimulating acupuncture points to release the body’s own natural antihistamines without the side effects of many allergy medications. Since acupuncture needles are so fine and virtually painless, an acupuncture treatment can hurt less than an allergy shot, is more relaxing, and doesn’t illicit a potential reaction like an allergy shot can. In addition, Chinese herbal medicine on its own or in conjunction with acupuncture is extremely effective in treating allergies. Even the use of ear seeds to stimulate certain acupuncture points can be extremely effective in alleviating allergy symptoms. Runny noses, itchy eyes, foggy head, coughing, and sneezing can all be treated effectively, safely, and naturally through acupuncture and herbal formulas without the adverse side effects of medications. It’s possible to alleviate allergies naturally while giving your body and opportunity to relax during an acupuncture treatment.
