Acupuncture for Allergies


Serving the Chicago Area Including Wheaton, Joliet, Naperville, Plainfield & Lombard


Many people in Naperville, Joliet, and surrounding cities in Illinois suffer from allergies and sinus pain. You may experience sinusitis, allergic rhinitis (hay fever), or other problems that leave you sneezing, coughing, with a runny nose or itching, watery eyes. Many allergies are seasonal, but some suffer from sinus issues and pain on an almost continuous basis. Is acupuncture for allergies something you should consider?

Whether due to pollen or other substances, allergies occur when something that is usually harmless is misidentified by the body's immune system. Allergies may be triggered by mold, animal dander, dust, and other offenders at any time of year. During spring and summer, tree, grass, and flower pollen often triggers allergic rhinitis. The unpleasant symptoms indicate an immune system that isn't functioning properly. In Western medicine, medications and nasal sprays are often used to reduce symptoms. The problem is, this only masks the underlying issue rather than getting to the underlying or "root" cause; it is temporary relief, whereas acupuncture can often provide permanent relief as it promotes healing of the imbalances in the body.

Acupuncture for Sinusitis and Sinus Pain


Acupuncture for sinus pain, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis and other allergy issues is highly beneficial, especially when combined with Chinese herbs and dietary/lifestyle therapy. Acupuncture boosts the immune system and relieves wheezing, coughing, itchy eyes, runny nose, sinus pain, and other common symptoms associated with allergies. Treatment is tailored to the unique needs and symptoms of each individual patient.

When allergens enter the nose, the immune system responds by releasing cytokines, histamine, chemokines, prostaglandins, and other inflammatory substances which actually cause the sneezing, nasal congestion, and other symptoms. Acupuncture and herbal medicine work to calm the "hyper" response of the immune system, thus relieving the symptoms without having to suppress them with medications.

Considering about 30% of the country’s population suffers from allergies, it is important to consider a more natural, non-invasive approach to relief rather than relying year after year on medications and antihistamines, which can have a negative impact on health in their own ways. Whether you suffer from chronic or seasonal allergies acupuncture can help significantly. Those in Chicago, Joliet, Lombard, and other nearby areas who have dealt with sinus pain, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis and other allergies are invited to learn more by contacting Eastern Healing today at 630-653-4358.
