Do you struggle during this time of year because you have allergies and sinus problems? Many of us who live here suffer during this time of year and that is unfortunate because we can’t enjoy the view with itchy watery eyes, asthma, stuffy nose, and an itchy throat. Allergies and sinus problems make our quality of life poor when we should be enjoying the green and sunshine.
Well the good news is, Acupuncture can help with Allergies and Sinus Problems also!
Sinuses are the pockets in the skull connected to the nasal passages, and when an allergen is breathed in, a histamine reaction occurs and there is swelling of the mucous membranes inside the passages. This causes havoc on the nose, behind the eyes, and down into the ears and throat. The sinuses becomes clogged with mucus that may even drip down the throat and into the lungs and stomach causing phlegm, congestion, and cough. This is what occurs when you have allergies. It is very uncomfortable and can not only cause a lot of fatigue but the medication to relieve the symptoms also can cause fatigue. So instead of lounging out doors in the sunlight with a green view, people end up sleeping more and having less fun. Here is where the persons quality of life decreases. Allergies can even make sleeping an issue because it can cause headache, congestion and cough when lying down even worse than when standing.
This is no way to live! If you want relief and the methods you have tried haven’t worked, and you are tired of buying medications that make you drowsy or don’t work well, maybe it’t time to try Acupuncture.
Acupuncture works in many ways to get rid of allergies. To start, Acupuncture will improve your immune system to prevent the allergens from being able to enter the body easily. It will help your body become stronger to have less illness caused by allergies. It can also reduce inflammation within the nasal passages, sinuses and respiratory tract to relieve the symptoms of your allergies.
Many people wonder how Acupuncture could do that within the body. The process of Acupuncture is effective because it effects the Qi flow in the body and helps the body become in balance so that its functioning is smooth and strong. The body is programmed with the ability to heal itself, but sometimes things that happen to our bodies block that ability, or we rely too much on medications to heal us or stop the symptoms of a problem, and by doing so, the body loses its ability to heal itself naturally. Acupuncture works by triggering nerves and energy flow in the body,as directed by the practitioner,to assist the body to repair itself more efficiently.
Acupuncture attacks allergies from all angles to make them occur less often, have a shorter duration of effect, and hopefully get rid of them altogether. Acupuncture can also relieve the symptoms of allergies so that, while your body gets stronger, you will feel better.
