A note about Acupuncture for Allergies Relief
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
When the human body is exposed to any form of allergen like pollen, for example, it brings about a increased production of IgE antibodies into the body which in turn fix themselves to the white blood corpuscles, also called mast cells.
These mast cells are found in the upper respiratory tract and lining of the stomach and skin. When the mast cells are stimulated, they discharge a lot of chemical substances like histamines into the body, which cause allergic symptoms.
Based on the above causes for allergies, acupuncture treatment for allergies works on stimulating the immune system in an attempt to help the body heal itself effectively, also reducing the frequency and severity of allergic reactions.
Most health care practitioners are finding out that acupuncture, when used in conjunction with other modalities, helps decrease allergy symptoms speedily and ultimately cures patients effectively.
Acupuncturists begin the treatment by conducting a history and physical examination, followed by arriving at a diagnosis, and integrating both acupuncture and conventional medical philosophies.
Acupuncture treatment for allergies include inserting very thin and fine sterile needles into areas exhibiting congestion on the face and other trigger points on the upper and lower extremities. By maneuvering these needles, the energy points are stimulated and begin to decongest the sinuses. These trigger points can also be treated with moxa herbs or electric charge to become more effective.
Most patients experience relief during the first session of acupuncture for allergies treatment, but repeated sessions will help eliminate the cause of symptoms, encouraging energy to flow freely in all channels of the body.
