Spring allergies and hay fever
We have found that there are two types of people, those that love spring and those that loathe spring….This usually comes down to whether or not you suffer allergies. If the immune system has been weakened through Winter by colds or flu then you may be more susceptible to allergies. Allergies can present as skin rashes or hives, hay fever with itchy eyes and a running nose, eczema, sinusitis or asthma. Coughs may also linger from winter through Spring.
Ways to prevent allergy sensitivity include maintaining a good immune system and keeping your body in balance. This can be achieved through good diet, exercise and rest.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine may provide a patient with some benefit to thee symptoms experienced with hay fever such as a blocked nose, itchy or sore eyes and pain. From a Chinese medicine perspective the strategy is to clear pathogenic energy from the body, support the immunity and strengthen the individual.
