While the best thing about spring may possibly be open to debate: the warmer weather, beautiful flowers, picnics; the worst thing is nearly at all times unanimous: seasonal allergies. Prescription and over-the-counter medications are extensively available, but do nothing to help overall health and prevention of allergies, plus come with a host of side effects. Regular remedies such when acupuncture, however, not only clear symptoms of allergies, but they also help the body come into balance: clearing the underlying condition causing allergies and improving overall health.
Seasonal allergies happen as soon as someone reacts to the pollen of flowers in trees, grasses and weeds, and causes symptoms such while itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, headaches, and fatigue.(1)
In spite of western medications are available, even over the counter, they come with their own host of side effects, one being temporary loss of smell and taste. Other side effects comprise headache, fatigue, wheezing and abdominal pain.(2) Plus, medications do nothing to improve health and prevent further allergies.
Allergies are a sign of an imbalance in the immune system. Balancing and strengthening the body can be the best thing to decrease or even rid oneself of seasonal allergies altogether.
Some normal tips include:
* Eat local, seasonal foods. This keeps us in tune and in balance with the regular cycles around us.
* Eat local honey, and – if you do not have a reaction to it, inspect by having only a tiny granule at first – local bee pollen. The local honey and bee pollen is made from pollen of local flowers, in a form that is utilized by the body. Thus, when the body is later exposed in the environment, the immune system does not see it as soon as an invader and answer back against it.
* Take a conventional multivitamin/mineral supplement year round to ensure that your body is functioning at its best.
* Eat more raw foods, specially in the warmer months. This puts us in tune with the seasons, and helps our body function at its best.
* Take a homeopathic allergy remedy. Homeopathic therapy works by similar the vibration of your symptoms to a specific remedy. As the vibrations match, they cancel the symptoms out and improve overall health.
* Receive acupuncture.
How Acupuncture Helps Treat Allergies
Acupuncture is a big way both to treat symptoms of seasonal allergies, and to bring the body into equilibrium so one must not suffer seasonal allergies in the future.
Acupuncture helps the sufferer of allergies in two main ways:
1. Alleviates symptoms such while itchy eyes, stuffiness, headaches and fatigue, and
2. Brings the body into balance.
Acupuncture is beneficial at treating symptoms of allergies. Various allergy symptoms are located above the neck, that is, in the head (stuffiness, headache, itchy eyes, etc.) This procedure the force is not flowing smoothly from the head into the rest of the body, and vice versa. All the yang meridians flow from the hands up to the head, or from the head down to the feet. We need to open the channels in the neck and shoulders and allow the force to flow.
Acupuncture possibly will also treat the symptoms very locally: by placing small, sterile needles correct on points of pain or symptoms like the head or side of nose, allowing the stuck power to dissipate and move more smoothly throughout the body.
Secondly, even if mainly importantly, acupuncture helps steadiness the body in general. This is done by taking a complete intake and doing a complete determination of every client who comes for treatment. Acupuncturists treat very specifically and individually, making sure the underlying purpose of allergies (and any other symptoms) are cleared. As soon as the body is in balance, symptoms disappear and health is restored. This is the main improvement of acupuncture: bringing a person into balance so that the body could heal itself of any ailment physically, mentally or emotionally.
As soon as allergies may well put a damper on enjoying the best the season holds, there is conventional relief for allergy sufferers. And the relief must not be temporary. In fact, after the body is brought to a higher level of health, we enjoy renewed energy, flexibility and joy of living.
