How Does Acupuncture Help Allergies?

Acupuncture reduces suffering from allergies in two main ways:

According to Chinese medical theory, the signs and symptoms that indicate a Western diagnosis of allergies relate to imbalances in the energy meridians and organ systems of the body. These imbalances may stem from a variety of causes including stress, poor diet, constitutional weakness, pollutants and environmental toxins. Overtime, if these imbalances remain within the body, they will affect the function of the organ systems. One such system impacted is referred to as Wei Qi in traditional Chinese medicine and is similar to the concept of the immune system. When this system is deficient, one becomes vulnerable to invaders such as dust, mold, animal dander, pollen, bacteria and viruses. Acupuncture helps to strengthen the systems of the body involved in the production of Wei Qi to reduce or eliminate the signs and symptoms of allergies. For those individuals who are chronic suffers of allergies, it is highly recommended that they seek treatment prior to the allergy season to help strengthen the immune system.
