ACUPUNCTURE


Spring is a beautiful season, but for many people, it is also the time when they suffer from seasonal allergies. While there are various conventional treatments available for allergies, some people turn to alternative therapies like acupuncture and/or NAET to alleviate their symptoms. In this blog post, we will explore how acupuncture can help with spring allergies.


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing. According to traditional Chinese medicine, allergies are caused by imbalances in the body's energy or qi. By targeting specific points on the body, acupuncture can help restore balance and alleviate allergy symptoms.


Here are some ways acupuncture can help with spring allergies:

  • Reduces inflammation

Acupuncture has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is one of the main causes of allergy symptoms like nasal congestion, sneezing, and itchy eyes. By reducing inflammation, acupuncture can help alleviate these symptoms.

  • Boosts the immune system

Acupuncture can also help boost the immune system, which is often weakened in people with allergies. By strengthening the immune system, acupuncture can help the body better handle allergens and reduce the severity of allergy symptoms.

  • Releases endorphins

Acupuncture has been shown to release endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers. Endorphins can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with allergies, including headaches, sinus pressure, and muscle aches.

  • Provides relief without side effects

One of the biggest advantages of acupuncture is that it provides relief without the side effects that come with many conventional allergy medications. Unlike antihistamines, which can cause drowsiness, dry mouth, and other side effects, acupuncture is generally safe and well-tolerated.


NAET


NAET stands for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique, and it is a holistic treatment approach that combines principles from traditional Chinese medicine, chiropractic, and nutrition to identify and eliminate allergies. NAET is based on the idea that allergies are caused by blockages in the body's energy pathways, and by restoring the flow of energy, allergy symptoms can be eliminated.


Here are some ways NAET can help with spring allergies:

  • Identifies allergens

NAET practitioners use muscle testing and other diagnostic techniques to identify the specific allergens that are causing the patient's symptoms. By identifying these allergens, NAET can provide targeted treatment that addresses the root cause of the allergies.

  • Restores energy flow

NAET involves a series of treatments that use acupressure and/or acupuncture to restore the flow of energy in the body. By removing blockages and restoring energy flow, NAET can help alleviate allergy symptoms.

  • Reinforces the immune system

NAET also involves nutritional counseling to help reinforce the immune system. By strengthening the immune system, the body is better able to handle allergens and reduce the severity of allergy symptoms.

  • Provides long-term relief

One of the advantages of NAET is that it provides long-term relief from allergies. Unlike conventional allergy medications, which only provide temporary relief, NAET addresses the underlying cause of allergies and can provide lasting relief.
