Common allergy symptoms are runny nose, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes. Most people will suffer from allergies at one point or another throughout the years. Acupuncture and herbal dietary supplement may be a great way to alleviate allergies naturally.
Chinese medical theory states that allergies come from an imbalance in the meridians and Organ Systems of the body. The imbalance may be caused by poor diet, stress, constitutional weakness, pollutants, and environmental toxin. Acupuncture and herbs can help bring balance back in the Wei Qi. The term Wei Qi is similar to the Western term immune system which prevents foreign substances from entering the body. When the Wei Qi is not balanced, foreign substances can enter the body and cause allergies.
What an acupuncturist will do is to conduct a thorough examination, take your health history and then prescribe a treatment plan specifically to alleviate your allergy symptoms. Most patients who have tried acupuncture to alleviate their allergies have had a quick body response to the treatment.
