Allergies 

Many people suffer from allergies. Severe allergic reactions present with anaphylactic shock where the throat closes and the person can’t breath. Seasonal allergies cause many people discomfort during their specific allergy season. Many people suffer with sensitivities to specific foods they eat. When a person suffers with sensitivities to an allergen they need to stay away from the irritant. Nonetheless, these are all still immune reactions to foreign particles found in our environment or foods. People with sensitivities inhale or touch these particles and their body reacts as if it were being invaded by a pathogen. Reactions can range any where from sneezing, runny nose,red, itchy, watery eyes, headache, coughing, and wheezing.

 

Eczema and Asthma

Eczema is another condition seen as a sensitivity to something in the environment or food one ingest.

 

Asthma is a condition a person is born with or develops over time.

 

The principal of Chinese medicine is to treat the person as a whole. The goal of acupuncturist is to develop a plan where they focus on alleviating the patient’s discomfort during the acute attack andto address the root cause of the body’s imbalances to help the body restore balance.
 
In addition to acupuncture, your practitioner may combine your treatment with a TCM herbal medicine, and Chinese dietary therapy. These therapies will enhance your health thereby improving your immune response which will minimize or prevent you from suffering.
