Seasonal Allergies and Hay Fever
Seasonal allergies and hay fever are caused when the immune system produces substances known as antibodies. When allergy symptoms arise the immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it may not be. The most common symptoms of seasonal allergies are itchy eyes, sneezing, and sinus congestion. While most over the counter allergy remedies alleviate the symptoms, they don’t resolve the problem. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can both effectively treat common allergy symptoms and also calm down an overactive immune/inflammatory response. We have been able to resolve or reduce many cases of seasonal allergies and in addition to pain patterns and injury rehabilitation, treating allergies has become one of my specialties.
