Acupuncture Puts an End to Allergy Misery

Acupuncture Puts an End to Allergy Misery

Spring will soon be upon us.  It’s a time to enjoy the warm air and longer days, but not if you have allergies. Itchy eyes and sneezing can be a dreaded sign that spring has arrived.

But people with allergies should know that spring need not be an unavoidable period of suffering. Nor does it require dependence on Claritin or fear of leaving the house without Kleenex.

Acupuncture for Allergies

The World Health Organization strongly recommends acupuncture for allergies and hay fever.  Clinical trials have shown it to be more effective than antihistamine drugs.

New research, published in the journal Allergy, shows the ancient Chinese medicine can dramatically reduce symptoms such as a runny nose and itchy eyes. Researchers found that when they used acupuncture, the number of patients feeling better was over double that compared to a group not given the treatment.

Acupuncture treats your allergies by gently strengthening the immune system and its ability to cope with the allergens that trigger the symptoms such as itchy and sore eyes and throat, sneezing, nasal inflammation and other related discomforts.

Allergy treatment

You should start the treatment before the pollen season begins or as soon as you experience the symptoms.

Rising temperatures appear to be boosting seasonal allergies, and studies have shown tree pollination is being prolonged.

Most people with allergies rely on over-the-counter medicines, such as eye drops and antihistamines, to relieve symptoms. But the discomfort can affect their work, social life and even relationships.

Treatment Protocol

Acupuncture is used in combination with homeopathic, Pascoallerg which has been a proven treatment for decades and works effectively to relieve symptoms associated with seasonal and food allergies.

It is important to stay ahead of your allergies so book now to prevent suffering this spring!
