Here today, gone tomorrow: How to avoid the effects of allergies.

It’s summertime and if you’re like most people, you’re probably outside enjoying the beautiful flowers, the warm waters of Emigrant Lake, and picnics at the park. If you are one of the lucky 20% of people who experience seasonal allergies, you may be hiding inside to avoid the inevitable symptoms of red, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, runny nose and sneezing.

Allergies are a result of our bodies interacting with our environment– with foods, chemicals, and natural substances that we inhale, ingest, or otherwise come in contact with. The immune system is designed to correctly identify between self and non-self. So when foreign bodies are encountered, the body reacts by releasing histamines.

Seasonal allergies are allergic reactions to a trigger that is typically only present for part of the year, such as spring or fall. Pollens that are spread by the wind are usually the main cause of seasonal allergies. People who are allergic to pollen are also often sensitive to mold, ragweed, dust mites, and animal dander.

Acupuncture restores balance to the body, improving immune system function, helping to relieve pain, reducing stress, enhancing blood circulation, and promoting overall health and vitality. Acupuncture needles act like switches in your body’s energy circuits. Since the problem was not the allergies themselves but your reaction to the allergen, these switches reprogram your body so that it doesn’t react to pollen as a harmful substance (or whatever you are allergic to).

It is important to understand that Acupuncture is a preventative medicine. The best way to ward off allergies is to strengthen your body’s immune system before allergy season hits, which is right now…since Spring and Fall tend to be the worst time of the year due to high winds and pollens in the air.

Whether you are experiencing hay fever, asthma, sinus infections, eczema, poison oak or allergic dermatitis, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help you feel better quickly. I also custom blend Essential Oils to use internally as a sinus rinse or steam inhalation or externally for poison oak, eczema, psoriasis and even bug bites for fast-acting relief that is all natural. The way nature intended it to be!
