If you are looking for natural allergy relief, the last thing you’d think about is acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Isn’t acupuncture just for pain? But for many acupuncture offers natural seasonal allergy relief from the sniffling and itchiness that plagues you! There are three reasons why more and more people are turning to acupuncture to help provide natural seasonal allergy relief with acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Read on for why people are using acupuncture to stifle the sniffle!
Acupuncture shuts down the histamine pathway: Histamine is the main culprit involved in allergies. If histamine is produced and the enzyme responsible for deactivating histamine does not function well, it can accumulate in the body, causing allergic reactions such as runny nose, itchy eyes, hives, and diarrhea including the symptoms of your allergies. Acupuncture reduces the histamine levels in the body so you experience an immediate reduction in allergic symptoms.
Acupuncture Reduces Stress Levels: Stress is a cause for allergy symptoms. High stress levels stimulate the release of the hormone corticotropin releasing hormone (or CRH) which revs up the production of the stress hormone, cortisol, which in turn activates more mast cells leading to the release of histamine which increases the awful allergy symptoms.
Ever notice that your allergies really worsen in the morning yet allergies tend to calm down at night? This ebb-and-flow of the allergy symptoms closely patterns the body’s secretion of stress hormones which are higher in the day and wind down at night.
Acupuncture works great for stress reduction by increasing neurotransmitter serotonin which “rev” down your over stressed nervous system, relaxing the body and the mind to help reduce your allergy symptoms.
Don’t feel stressed? Your body has ways of “talking” to you through your symptoms. Allergies show your body is behaving very symptoms say otherwise and tell you what your body is really experiencing.
Improving Sleep Reduces Allergies: Histamine release is closely related with the sleep-wake cycle. Failing to get adequate restful and proper amount of sleep, stimulates more release of histamine. This will, in turn, increase your allergy symptoms. So improving the body to get a more restful sleep Therefore, reducing stress in the body, reduces allergies and getting more sleep is crucial to getting control over your allergies.
There are many who use anti-histamines to control their allergic symptoms. However for some people it is not enough to alleviate the symptoms enough for them to breathe comfortably. Others cannot tolerate the unwanted side effects of anti-histamines as it tends to raise blood pressure, causes urinary retention or difficulty urinating. For others it can cause memory loss, anxiety, and disturbed sleep. As a result many are looking for natural ways to deal with their seasonal allergies.
