Seasonal allergies is perhaps one of the most frustrating issues any person can have, especially since most of the time common remedies do little to treat the problem and only reduce allergy symptoms.
Millions of people are forced to deal with runny noses, puffy and itchy eyes, sneezing, and more throughout the months of March, April, May, June, and sometimes even into the fall. Over the counter medications and nasal sprays can be helpful, but more and more people are turning to longer lasting treatment methods like allergy shots to reduce hay fever and similar problems. Others are seeking more natural remedies to their seasonal allergies.
How Does Acupuncture Help Treat Allergies
While acupuncture is often used for reducing headaches, stress, muscle and joint pain, and other sources of discomfort in the body, studies have shown that it also helps many people get through allergy season with fewer symptoms.
Acupuncture has been used for many generations in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a variety of conditions. A practitioner will utilize specific acupuncture points to help regulate the body by stabilizing energy pathways. Acupuncture for seasonal allergies is a natural remedy that aids in reducing excess histamine excretion and allergic responses. Acupuncture can also decrease inflammatory proteins in the body.
