Allergies can be quite miserable to deal with day in and day out. Acupuncture alone can be very effective at reducing allergy symptoms and reactions by getting the body more in balance and strengthening the immune system. I have an all natural allergy relief protocol that combines muscle testing (kinesiology), holding a small vial of a homeopathic representation of the allergen, and using specific acupuncture points that desensitizes the person to offending allergen. This is a 20-minute treatment and works quite well for most people. It usually does have to be repeated yearly/seasonally, but does make a huge difference in allergic reactions the offending environmental allergen.
Some regular acupuncture treatments would help strengthen your immune system so that you are not as reactive to environmental allergens.
Some things to try that can also help allergies are:
- A teaspoon of local honey a day
- Dietary changes
- Using a Neti Pot
- Butterbur and Stinging Nettle (natural antihistamines)
