Allergies, anyone??? Runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, post nasal drip and the list goes on….Ideally, we would have started treating these symptoms a month before they surfaced. This year’s weather made predicting the arrival of “Spring” allergy symptoms almost impossible, but now we’re here with full on misery.
Chinese Medicine is very effective in treating and often preventing your symptoms from occurring. I have three “magical” herbal formulas that dry me right up within an hour!! Regular Acupuncture treatments coupled with Chinese herbs are a powerful combination that will allow you to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather!!
If you are not a fan of needles and can’t remember to take your herbs, here a few things you can do to help:
1.Take your shower before bed-allergens are in your hair and on your skin. You will breathe in pollen all night long if you shower in the morning!
2.Abstain from refined sugar, dairy and wheat until symptoms pass as these all produce mucus in the body adding to your discomfort!
3. Rinse your sinuses via Netti Pot or in the shower to remove allergens.
4. Drink plenty of water to loosen secretions.
These practices will help you through allergy season and perhaps you will consider Acupuncture or Chinese herbs to alleviate your symptoms in the future!!
A Votre Sante!!
