Allergies are caused by an imbalanced immune system, resulting in the body over reacting to stimuli.
Acupuncture/Auriculotherapy treats the imbalances. A treatment can help relieve the acute symptoms the allergens cause, such as nasal congestion, headaches, itchy, watery eyes, and fatigue. It also treats the root cause, that is allowing the body to overreact.
People often say, “I have never had allergies before now.” Our body is like a bucket placed under a leaky roof. It will catch the drips but after a while, the bucket will overflow if we do not fix the roof. When the bucket (our body) overflows, that is when we start feeling the symptoms of allergies, and other physical and mental health issues.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!"
Things like poor diet, lack of exercise and sleep, and added stress will cause the bucket to fill more quickly. We can empty the bucket by having treatments such as acupuncture and auriculotherapy, or other modalities that can balance the subtle but vital energy that flows throughout the body. The bottom line though, is we need to repair the roof, not just patch it, which requires lifestyle changes.
Spring is an awesome time to start these changes, as it is a time for renewal. It is easier to make changes when we have more daylight and warmth, and seeing nature’s regrowth is rejuvenating. Over the spring and summer we have time to turn these lifestyle changes into habits, and maintain them during the fall and winter.
We can choose to keep up the vicious cycle, by not taking proper care of ourselves physically and mentally, and allowing the bucket to keep overflowing. Or we can choose to fix the leak and start feeling better, and living life to the fullest!
