Cherry blossom season is just around the corner. For some of us this beauty on the eyes is also a toxin to the system. The immune system of those who suffer from seasonal allergies has learned to over-react to the pollens of several of the blooming spring trees and plants.
What these allergies commonly feel like:
- Watering Eyes
- Itchy, runny nose
- Sinus Congestion/ Pressure
- Low Energy
- Urticaria – Hives
Symptoms and suffering can be eased with:
- Acupuncture Treatment
- Chinese Herbal Remedies
- Natural Supplements
- Resolving these symptoms at home:
Daily saline rinses using a Neti Pot will help flush the sinuses of irritants and mucus. Over the counter antihistamines work temporarily to slow the hyper-response of the immune system. These do nothing, however, to address the question: Why is my immune system responding this way to otherwise harmless pollens?
Resolving these symptoms with a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine:
Acupuncture and TCM herbal therapies help to rebalance the immune system so that you’re able to go outside and smell the flowers without the fear of an allergic reaction. Typically within one week, Our practitioners will have you symptom free after which we begin to strengthen your system to bring that state of balance back to the immune system.
