allergies are treated with acupuncture and herbs

Allergies

Allergy sufferers can find relief with acupuncture and herbal medicine. Acupuncture opens the sinuses, relieves pressure from the eyes, enhances the immune system, smoothes air passages and reduces irritation. Custom herbal preparations help to clear sinus infections, dissolve phlegm from the lungs and fortify the body’s natural defenses against allergens.

Patients often choose to use either acupuncture or herbal medicine. However, they can be used simultaneously for more rapid results. Patients notice greater energy levels, better sleep, less irritability, and fewer respiratory complications as a result of acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment. Often, underlying issues such as chronic bronchitis, asthma and respiratory damage from a history of pneumonia are addressed as part of the treatment process.
