Acupuncture: Alternative Treatment to Allergy Medication

Unlike over the counter medications, Acupuncture is a natural treatment for allergies and does not cause side effects, such as hours of drowsiness. Acupuncture is also not habit forming (addictive) like many nasal sprays. Acupuncture helps the body balance itself in Anoka.

Seasonal Allergies 

Spring is the time of suffering for many with seasonal allergies. Just as the last bit of snow melts to  release the molds and pollen, these are then carried by the wind into our lungs and sinus tissues.

Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies:

  • Sneezing
  • Facial pain
  • Sinus congestion
  • Sinus headaches
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sore throat (post-nasal drip)
  • Temporal headache (headache in the temples)

Aleesha D Acupuncture in Anoka treats allergy symptoms such as; sneezing, facial pain, sinus congestion, sinus headache, itching and watering eyes, sore throat due to post-nasal drip and temporal headaches.

How Does Acupuncture Treat Seasonal Allergies?

The body’s immune system reacts to allergens with an inflammatory response by making histamine. Histamine is the body’s reaction which causes all the allergy symptoms like itchy, watery eyes.

Acupuncture works by lowering inflammation in the body. Acupuncture helps many achieve relief of their sneezing, wheezing, watery, itching eyes and sinus congestion associated with seasonal allergies.
