Diagnosing an allergy using traditional Chinese medicine is far more individualized than it would be with Western medicine. Allergies are analyzed by the pattern of symptoms seen in the specific patient, and the treatment is designed to relieve these particular symptoms. The diagnosis most time will end with the pathological accumulation of dampness (forms of water), and the treatment plan is determined based on body conditions, history, and other individual considerations.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, stainless steel, single-use, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points depending on the diagnose based on traditional Chinese medicine, and herbal medicine is often prescribed for chronic cases.
Acupuncture, for the treatment of allergic conditions, can be effective as one to three treatment sessions, it usually requires further maintenance and Chinese herbal medicine to achieve the optimum outcome.
