Acupuncture for Allergies and Asthma
With allergies and asthma, your body often becomes sensitive to some environmental trigger causing symptoms such as sneezing, allergic rhinitis, coughing and wheezing.
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are used to treat allergies and asthma. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treat the inflammation, immune system response, and body imbalances that lead to symptoms. Acupuncture focuses its treatment on correcting the root imbalance that is upsetting the body, thus helping the body to heal itself.
Acupuncture helps by stimulating the immune system to strengthen your defenses as well as helping to regulate your body’s reactions and decrease its hyperactivity. So instead of simply suppressing your body’s reaction with antihistamines, TCM works to correct the root cause of the problem.
