At Eastern Healing of Wheaton and Joliet, we treat allergies and asthma with Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). These safe, alternative treatments treat the inflammation, immune system response, and body imbalances that lead to symptoms. Acupuncture focuses its treatment on correcting the root imbalance that is upsetting the body, thus helping the body to heal itself.
How Acupuncture Helps Allergies and Asthma
With allergies and asthma, your body often becomes sensitive to some environmental trigger causing symptoms such as sneezing, allergic rhinitis, coughing and wheezing.
Acupuncture helps by stimulating the immune system to strengthen your defenses as well as helping to regulate your body’s reactions and decrease its hyperactivity. So instead of simply suppressing your body’s reaction with antihistamines, Chinese medicine works to correct the root cause of the problem. Many people have even been able to decrease their medications over time.
Chinese medicine, along with Western medicine, can address the allergy response, help to decrease the stress and tension, as well as offering some lifestyle and dietary guidelines to help improve your asthma symptoms and frequency of occurrence.
Alternative Treatments for Allergies and Asthma
Before treating you, we perform a full health evaluation and discuss your symptoms, triggers, medical diagnosis, medications, and your goals with you. Then we recommend an individualized plan to address your condition that may include acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet therapy, cold laser, or other modalities.
Acupuncture sessions take about an hour and are generally more frequent when you start treatment then slowly taper off as you improve.
