Acupuncture Can Help Allergy Symptoms
Allergies are unpleasant and make it hard to be happy for the spring and summer weather. They even put you at risk of getting sick. The only medications that seem to help seem always to put you to sleep to top it off. If you have been dealing with allergies, it can be hard to find relief from the itching and sneezing.
What are allergies?
Allergies occur because the body’s immune system thinks a normally harmless substance is a threat and overreacts by making antibodies. When you are exposed to this allergen, inflammation occurs in your sinuses, skin, and airways.
While the severity of your allergies depends on where you live and what you are allergic to, many people experience the worse symptoms when spending more time outside. Also, dust mites are a common cause of indoor allergies.
How can acupuncture help?
Acupuncture may offer the solution for your allergy symptoms. Acupuncture has been used to successfully treated many health conditions beginning in ancient China over 3,000 years ago. Today, modern scientists have started to understand exactly how it works. Acupuncture helps reduce inflammation in the body. Allergic conditions, including hay fever, asthma, and eczema, are all linked to inflammation, so it is understandable how acupuncture is an effective treatment for allergies. Research also suggests acupuncture influences the body’s cells and boosts the production of specific proteins that help protect against allergic inflammation.
While there is plenty of evidence supported by scientific research, many patients of acupuncture report noticeable improvements in their allergy symptoms after treatments. While acupuncture is effective on its own, it can be used in conjunction with traditional medicine.
