Thousands of people suffer from allergies, whether they are seasonal, indoor, or outdoor. These allergies are related to imbalances in the body. These imbalances may stem from a variety of causes including pollutants, environmental toxins, poor diet, stress and constitutional weakness. Acupuncture along with Chinese herbs can provide relief from allergies without the unwanted side effects of the over the counter medication or the hassle of allergy shots.
Patients may find relief during the first visit! After an initial set of treatments patients come back for further treatments on an as needed basis, depending on the severity of their allergies. A study by the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture indicated that patients who have had not responded to medication or allergy shots have had better results when on an Acupuncture Treatment Plan. Most patients end up significantly reducing or even eliminating the need for allergy medication.
