For many summer can be a worrying time, bringing with it sudden attacks of sneezing, blocked noses, itching of the roof of the mouth, and red, watery, and itchy eyes.
Hay fever is considered to be a hypersensitivity of the nasal mucus to substances such as the pollens of grasses, trees, and flowers and can sometimes trigger sinusitis and sinus headaches.
Traditional Chinese medicine theory aims to strengthen the body’s natural defences by using a combination of herbs and acupuncture to help it deal better with incoming allergens. Therapists at Care Cure work by stimulating the small channels connecting the sinuses to the nasal passages. This allows the mucus to drain into the nose from the sinuses, and air to flow into the sinuses from the nose.
Stimulating these congestion points can reduce or eliminate the signs and symptoms of allergic and irritant hay fever and keep the airways clear. More importantly, it can stimulate the body’s ability to dissolve phlegm, fight infection, and build strength. After receiving acupuncture many Care Cure patients say they can breathe freely, even after one treatment.
