Traditional Chinese Medicine, including a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs, is a safe, natural and effective option for treating allergies.
- Seasonal Allergies
- Sinus congestion
According to TCM, when it comes to the common cold or seasonal allergies, external pathogens invade your body causing symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, runny nose, wheezing, sore throat, or itchy, watery eyes. The state of your health during the changes in each season can determine the body’s response to these pathogens. For example, in the winter season, stress can weaken immunity. Other examples include overwork, insufficient rest or sleep, exercising too strenuously without resting and refueling the body. All these factors can produce deficiency in the body which in turn weakens the immune system. Our goal with acupuncture and Chinese herbs is to strengthen the body’s immune response to enhance and restore healthy function in order to maintain optimal health.
