Asthma and allergy

May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, a time to bring attention to two common chronic conditions that impact millions of people worldwide. Asthma is a respiratory condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Allergies occur when the immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen or dust, resulting in symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes, and congestion. This month aims to educate the public about the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for these conditions, and encourage individuals to take proactive steps to manage their condition. 

One complementary therapy that has shown promise in managing allergy symptoms is acupuncture. This traditional Chinese medicine involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system, both of which can help the body fight off allergens. Additionally, acupuncture has a relaxing effect that can help reduce stress, which can exacerbate allergy symptoms.
