Stay Ahead: Preparing for Allergy Season
In Chinese Medicine, there is a philosophy that it is best to treat an illness before it has a chance to manifest. As practitioners, we not only take care of symptoms as they arise, but we also treat the root cause of the illness to eliminate the symptoms from occurring in the first place. As we approach allergy season, now is a great time to restore optimal balance to your body, with the opportunity to avoid or reduce those crummy symptoms that often restrict us from making the most out the upcoming season's experience.
Spring is a time when we have the chance to absorb the gorgeous aromas of budding flowers, hang out on the lawn in the evenings with friends, go hiking, and create our gardens. With many of us, spring is unfortunately synonymous with itchy eyes and skin, rashes, congestion, feeling like you can’t take a deep breath, not being able to fully enjoy the outdoors, or feeling foggy or fatigued. Chinese Medicine is tremendously effective at eliminating allergy symptoms as they arise, but it is also powerful at preparing and strengthening the body to reduce or avoid those pesky allergic reactions for the entire season. With regular acupuncture, herbs, cupping, and nutritional tips, we can help you enjoy the beauty and vigor that spring has to offer. Schedule a consult with one of our acupuncturists today to discuss a preventative plan for you – and minimize allergies symptoms, naturally.
