Acupuncture-Safe And Effective Treatment For Seasonal Allergies.

Posted by magnoliaacupuncture on December 2nd, 2014

There are many people who complain about seasonal allergy symptoms such as runny nose, congestion, rashes, itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, coughing. Allergies occur when the immune system overreacts to a substance that doesn't bother most people. In the spring, pollen is what gets to some people. But indoor allergies due to dust mites, dust, or pet hair, for instance can cause problems all year round. If your allergy symptoms are preventing you from leading a normal lifestyle, you can trust acupuncture treatment which is effective and totally safe. Here are some ways you can benefit from acupuncture treatment.

What is acupuncture?

According to Magnolia Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, the best centre for acupuncture in Orange County CA, acupuncture is a component of the health care system of China that is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture employs penetration of the skin by thin, solid, metallic needles, which are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.

How is an allergy diagnosed in acupuncture?

Diagnosing an allergy using traditional Chinese medicine is far more individualized than it would be with Western medicine. Allergies are analyzed by the pattern of symptoms seen in the specific patient, and the treatment is designed to relieve these particular symptoms. For example: In a ‘heat’ condition, the phlegm or expectorant is green; there is redness or yellow coat on the tongue and the patient has a rapid pulse. In a cold condition, the phlegm or expectorant is white or clear and the tongue has a white coating.

What will an acupuncture specialist do to relieve your symptoms?

Once the disease is diagnosed based on your symptoms, your acupuncturist can target the specific acupuncture points that will alleviate symptoms. When you get acupuncture for allergies in Orange County centre you get the following benefits:

• Usual treatments for allergies include antihistamine drugs, nasal corticosteroids (commonly called steroids), and Immunotherapy, often referred to as "allergy shots.” These treatments have side effects where as acupuncture is safe and helps in long term allergy management.

• The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities.
