Unfortunately, when the seasons change many people begin suffering from various allergies. In response, one must prepare the body for each season. It is ideal to do this prior to each season as a preventive measure. However, most people wait for symptoms to present themselves before taking action. Spring is an especially difficult time for those prone to allergic reactions.
In order to prevent these reactions, the body needs to be balanced energetically. A doctor of Chinese medicine and acupuncture can check the energy levels in the body through the pulse, as well as through observation of the tongue, eyes, skin, nails and hair. Each organ requires evaluation to see if it is working well energetically. Every system in the body, such as the endocrine, reproductive and digestive systems, needs to be checked in much the same way.
This examination, combined with asking the patient questions, enables the acupuncturist to choose a therapeutic approach of acupuncture point selection combined with Chinese herbal medicine that specifically assists the patient in achieving an optimal state of energetic balance where allergic symptoms will diminish.
Much of the success of this procedure has to do with the training, experience and expertise of the practitioner. There are many different acupuncture point selections and Chinese medicine combinations to choose from, making treatment very individualized.
Energy is what makes everything in us work. When we are balanced energetically, we tend to be well physically, emotionally and spiritually. We need to be in optimal balance to be allergy-free. This can be done through acupuncture and Chinese medicine when administered by a very experienced, well-trained acupuncturist and doctor of Oriental medicine.
