Over 100 million Americans have allergies or suffer from allergy-related problems each year. Allergy symptoms can reduce the quality of life and enjoyment of your life. Allergies are an over-reaction of the body's immune system to such normal substances like dust, mold, pollen, animals, and even foods. These substances only affect people who are overly sensitive to them.
Many factors can influence your susceptibility to allergies. For instance, chronic stress can weaken your immune system which leads to increased sensitivity to allergens that normally do not cause an allergic reaction.
Some more common symptoms or problems that you might experience due to allergies include: Runny nose, itchy eyes, sinus congestion, postnasal drip, sore throat, skin rash, ear infections, chest congestion, coughing, headaches, fatigue, and asthma.
Common treatments of allergies range from dietary restriction to inhalant steroids. Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may feel that these medications just are not enough to improve your quality of life.
Acupuncture practitioners treat allergies by evaluating your organ systems to determine which areas to stimulate in order to increase the immune system function. This, as a result, can help eliminate one of the causes of allergic reactions.
Whether you suffer from perennial or seasonal allergies and have not found success with your current treatments, we are here to provide a natural solution that could drastically reduce your suffering.
