Spring is in the Air! Acupuncture is just as, if not more, effective for treating seasonal allergies.

Spring is in the air! And so is the dust, pollen, and snow mold. Don't let seasonal allergies make spring miserable. 

Thousands of Colorado residents suffer from seasonal allergies. Watery, itchy eyes, sniffling, sneezing, and sometimes even sinus infection are the result of an onslaught of spring allergens. Those who suffer allergies do so because they are having a hypersensitive immune reaction to the allergens. 

The most common treatment for allergies are medications that include corticosteroids and antihistamines. Stimulants are often added to the antihistamines to prevent drowsiness. These drugs don't come without side-effects, and often interfere with other medications and vitamins you may be taking. 

Acupuncture is an equally effective treatment for seasonal allergies and offers side benefits, not side effects. People who receive acupuncture notice improvement in many aspects of their life including improved energy, better sleep, and getting sick less often. Recent research shows that acupuncture is just as effective as medications in relieving seasonal allergy symptoms. Acupuncture reduces the release of histamines, and moderates the bodies immune reaction to provide all natural, drug free relief from rhinitis. 

Your acupuncturist can also offer you an all natural herbal option for relief. Herbal steams and internal herbal prescriptions are another all natural drug free option to offer you relief. 

If you are starting to feel the first signs of seasonal allergies, call to schedule your treatment so you get back to enjoying a clear, allergy free spring!
