Spring brings life, colour and warmth to our lives. But for many people it also brings sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, sinus pressure and headaches. Allergies are no fun and they can make you miserable.
Sometimes antihistamines will do the trick and keep the symptoms under control. If it doesn’t then you might need to progress to steroidal sprays like Nasonex to help keep symptoms at bay. Other times it doesn’t matter what you take, you cannot get your symptoms under control. I have some new patients who despite taking 10 antihistamine tablets a day they are still all stuffed up in the head.
If you cannot get your symptoms under control or would rather not take drugs then acupuncture is a highly effective way to alleviate your hayfever symptoms.
When you receive acupuncture you should notice your nasal passages opening up for easier and clearer breathing. Sinus pressure and headaches will also reduce with acupuncture Melbourne.
Sometimes we will also prescribe Chinese herbs to reduce inflammation, help stop your nose from running and prevent sneezing.
We will also advise you what you should and should not eat. Foods can make your hay fever symptoms worse so you need to be mindful what you eat.
Many people seek acupuncture treatment as we move into Spring. If you have hayfever symptoms now then acupuncture will help reduce and even remove symptoms. If you don’t have any symptoms yet but know that they will hit you soon, acupuncture can prevent symptoms from coming on at all.
For a natural clearer head and much more comfortable springtime, come in for some acupuncture today.
