Allergy Elimination

How Allergies Work


An allergy is the body’s response to a substance that the immune system recognizes as harmful. For some, this sensitivity may be a seasonal issue, such as when plants release pollen that fills the air. For others, a more ongoing sensitivity may be at play, such as that of pet dander or dust. The body’s immune system reacts by dispensing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). This process manifests itself as an allergic reaction, the symptoms of which often include:


  • Sneezing
  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Scratchy throat

Natural Allergy Relief


Although Western medicine offers drugs to manage allergy symptoms, it is possible to alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms associated with allergies more holistically. In fact, ancient Chinese methods are scientifically proven to be more effective. Many who prefer an alternative method keep the antihistamines at bay and treat the natural way, with a powerful one-two punch of acupuncture and herbal formulas.

Treatments for allergy management and elimination depend on the severity of the allergy. Many suffering with seasonal allergies discover lasting relief after just one acupuncture treatment. For others, particularly those with chronic allergies, a full course of treatment may require multiple sessions and ongoing maintenance. Herbal supplements may complement these treatments to offer an optimal quality of life.
