Acupuncture’s Treatment for Allergies

Acupuncture has been effectively shown in scientific studies to reduce allergy and eczema symptoms. The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that acupuncture is an excellent treatment for seasonal allergies, asthma, and sinusitis.

The benefits of acupuncture on the neurological, sensory, and immunological systems are well documented. Acupuncture controls regulatory processes and the movement of chemicals that affect histamines and immunological response (IgE). According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an allergic reaction to the body only happens when the body has a very difficult time adjusting to its environment. As a result, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) advises that we should concentrate on treating the allergic person rather than the allergies themselves. In other words, allergic reactions happen when the lung becomes weaker and doesn't work as well as it should. It is referred to as the lung system's weakness in TCM.

Let's go into more depth to further clarify and help you comprehend the procedure.

The first organ to come into contact with allergens is the respiratory system. It will be susceptible to all allergens when it is present in a weakened state. Chinese medicine that doesn't rely largely on chemicals and acupuncture work hand in hand. They function by restoring the body's natural balance, controlling its healing energy, and boosting the immune system. When the therapy is applied to a person, the acupuncture or meridian points are the focus. Scientific studies indicate that an energy known as "qi" that supports immunity is circulated. Traditional allergy symptoms including swellings, watery eyes, runny noses, sneezing, allergic eczema, and conjunctivitis result from an unbalanced body being exposed to allergens. Specific acupuncture points on the body can be stimulated to relieve symptoms and help the body regain balance (Wolf, 2021). This procedure guarantees that it will strengthen immunity, soothe the mind and spirit, and lessen any discomfort brought on by allergies. The obstructed channels were opened up by the use of needles, which also reduces any obstructions or inflammation. This lessens the pressure, flow, and pain in the ground. As a result, the body's energy remains constant. Likewise, the body is at ease when the mind is. The pressure we feel in our belly also disappears when the pressure in our body does.

In TCM, when allergies are being treated, the environment's root cause as well as the symptoms on the outside are considered.

Remember that dealing with health and therapy can often be hard, but it doesn't mean you should put restrictions on yourself or avoid trying the therapy. Therapy ensures that your body isn't being forced to use the hard chemicals. Instead, it gives your body time to heal naturally.
