Our allergy and respiratory patients usually experience a noticeable improvement in the first two weeks of treatment. Chinese Medicine can be curative in these cases, actually boosting the immune system and reducing symptoms.
Asthma, Cough, Bronchitis, Colds and Flus, Rhinitis, Tonsillitis, and COPD are well treated using Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Allergies, Sinusitis, and Rhinitis are treated frequently in our clinic. In most of these cases we see an 80% reduction of symptoms. Asthma and COPD also respond well to acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. We encourage patients to come in even with active cold or Flu symptoms, as Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine can dramatically reduce the severity and duration of most cold and flu symptoms.
For many people in Central Florida, allergies can be year-round. This is because we have outdoors activities, and pollen, throughout most of the year. People with allergies may be unable to enjoy their time outdoors due to uncomfortable symptoms like nasal congestion, itchy eyes, and fatigue. Allergies due to environment, food or other factors can induce the same suffering or worse, including skin conditions, difficulty breathing, or anaphylactic shock. Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications that target allergy problems are plentiful, but are only mask symptoms without resolving the underlying cause of the problem. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to help bring relief from symptoms, correct imbalances of the immune system, prevent the occurrence of infection, and encourage healing of the body.
