It’s been a crazy year for allergy sufferers here in Sonoma County. We had so much rain that things seem to be in constant bloom. I know this because my car has been covered in a thick layer of pollen for the last three weeks. What are people to do though if they don’t want to take over the counter medications? Or are trying to conceive and really want to avoid anything that could potentially affect fertility which includes allergy medications. Acupuncture is often described as a method of preventing and treating disease, illness, injury or pain by allowing the body to heal naturally and improve the way it functions.
With seasonal allergies affecting one-third of Americans, acupuncture can provide a new kind of relief. While over-the-counter medications often come with unwanted side-effects, acupuncture does not.
Acupuncture seeks to treat both the root (underlying weakness) and the presenting symptoms. This two pronged approach not only offers a longer lasting solution to seasonal allergies but also strengthens the immune system.
Acupuncture, unlike over-the-counter-remedies offers tailor-made treatments. Specifically designed in response to detailed note taking focusing on, history, life style, sleep patterns, diet etc, which all build to create a detailed profile. This, profile along with both pulse and tongue diagnosis enable an individualized treatment plan.
The specific treatment plan, may include herbs, moxa and or cupping as an adjunct to needles.
