How Does Acupuncture Help With Allergies?
Allergies occur when pollen and other allergens are released from trees, flowers, grasses or weeds, mostly in the spring and summer time. The attachment of allergens to the body’s white blood cells often causes the release of chemicals, including histamine, which causes allergic reactions.
Acupuncture aims to correct the blockages and imbalances that occur in the meridians and organs as a result of allergic reaction, therefore relieving the allergy symptoms. Most of these imbalances are found in the membrane lining the nose and eyelids, causing a stuffy nose and itchy eyes. Acupuncture treatments directed towards the nasal passage and around the eyes are most effective in preventing allergic reactions on these areas.
The main goal of acupuncture is to enable the healthy flow of qi (vital energy) throughout the body’s meridians. In addition to acupuncture, other natural remedies such as herbal supplements have been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of allergy symptoms. For example, green tea is considered a natural antihistamine and can help relieve congestion.
