In my practice, I meet so many patients with allergy problems. They feel discomfort all year long and much worse when the weather change or when they are under stress or fatigued. Their symptoms include sneezing, congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes, chest tightness, difficult breathing or even wheezing. They have been using Antihistamines, Corticosteroid, Epinephrine shots, Antibiotics etc to control symptoms. But they never really get rid of allergy completely. Apart from that, they experience drowsiness, fatigue, over-reliance on medicine from the side effects of drugs.
When patients come to see me with severe symptoms, I put needles on Yin tang, Ying xiang, He gu, Zu san li. After the manipulation on needles, patients feel nose clear right away. I give them herbal powder tea to release the exterior. Symptoms go away within 3 to 4 days. The best thing is that patients do not have any side effects with herbs. After the symptoms disappear, I suggest patients take more herbal tea. But this time I prescribe different herbs which function to boost their immune system and improve energy to prevent allergy come back. Patients are amazed that under my treatment, they get rid of many years allergy within a couple of weeks.
