Anyone who has ever moved to North Carolina from another state knows how difficult spring can be for seasonal allergy sufferers. Many people rely on antihistamines, decongestants, and allergy shots to find some level of relief. Many people don’t realize that there is a much better, more natural way to deal with seasonal allergies.
Chinese herbs have been used for centuries to help allergy suffers find relief and in some cases Chinese herbs can be used for a more permanent solution. Chinese herbal medicine is not used to just alleviate symptoms, but is also used to help support the underlying deficiencies in each patient so that they will become less reactive to allergens. With approximately 9,000 natural herbs and minerals used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are a wide variety of solutions and treatment approaches for allergy sufferers.
In addition, diet can be an important component of any allergy treatment plan. It is important to remember that Chinese Medicine treats each person as an individual and there is no one solution that will work for everyone. With an individualized approach, we can much more effectively address each patient’s unique set of symptoms and work with them toward a natural and effective solution.
