If you’re seeking allergy relief and more natural allergy remedies, you’re not alone. Each year, more than 50 million Americans experience allergies. Yet many are tired of the side-effects from their allergy medications. While Western medicine can be effective in treating the allergic symptoms, unpleasant side effects from drugs used to treat those symptoms often occur. As a result, many people look for natural allergy remedies for allergy relief. Hence the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture for allergies are gaining increased recognition for being effective treatment options.

Our acupuncture clinic utilizes a variety of natural allergy remedies. These remedies address both acute symptoms and the underlying imbalances that are paramount to long-term allergy relief. In addition to employing acupuncture for allergies, other treatments can include changes in diet, as well as selected herbal formulas. This CNN story “Acupuncture May Be An Antidote for Allergies” reviews a study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine that found acupuncture can effectively offer allergy relief.
How Does Acupuncture For Allergies Work?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), views the body as a complex system of energy channels, or meridians. Our Arlington Heights acupuncturist focuses on identifying disharmony and imbalance in these channels that can lead to disease and chronic allergic reactions.
Qi (pronounced “chee”), the vital energy or life force, travels through these meridians. The qi can become blocked or overstimulated as a result of stress or internal emotions, environmental factors and poor lifestyle habits (diet, addiction, lack of exercise). The goal of the acupuncturist is to restore the balance and harmony to the qi, creating a state of health.
