Acupuncture is highly effective with treatment of these problem areas.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are very effective in treating allergies, sinus congestion and sinus infections. While decongestants, anti-biotics and steroids (prednisone, flonase ect) can provide temporary relief, Chinese Medicine does treats the underlying cause of the allergy for long-term relief. Congestion and infection is seen in Chinese Medicine as dampness and heat that needs to be cleared. Once the congestion or sinus infection is cleared, with regular treatments Chinese medicine can treat the root cause of the allergies by strengthening your wei qi – your natural immune booster.
Constipation, diarrhea, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and nausea can all be treated with Acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Whether the digestive disorder is caused by stress, auto immune dysfunction (chronns ), pms or morning sickness, Chinese medicine is effective in correcting the imbalance. Patients with constipation or bowel movements that are hard to expel and irregular often feel relief within a day or two. Improved digestion is a side-effect of Acupuncture. Patients who come in for “seemingly” unrelated disorders often notice that their digestion improves during the course of treatments.
