Allergies Allergic Rhinitis
Treatment for allergic rhinitis focuses on relieving symptoms during acute allergy attacks and strengthening the Lung and Kidney energy to prevent recurrence. August, September and October are considered particularly auspicious months for allergy treatment. The body is tonified at this time to prevent or reduce allergy symptoms the following year. The treatment principle is to clear wind from the nose thereby opening the nasal passages, and to tonify the Lungs and Kidneys thereby regulating the immune response. For many people, five to six acupuncture treatments may produce significant allergy relief over a long period of time. Herbal treatments that may be used include:
Lu Rong, or deer antler strengthens the bodys defensive energy
Gui Ban or turtle shell strengthens essence
Wu Mei and Wu Wei Zi herbs specific for reducing allergy response
Xin Yi Hua, the magnolia flower bud powerfully opens the sinuses and expels wind from nose.
If a person is prone to catch colds easily, the patent formula Jade Windscreen can be very helpful if taken over a period a 1 to 2 months. This formula strengthens the lungs defensive energy, increasing resistance to disease.
