Allergies of all types — ranging from nasal and seasonal allergies to skin and food allergies — are on the rise, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Unfortunately, there is no cure for them, but if you suffer from allergies, Aligned Modern Health can help you find allergy relief.
Aligned Modern Health provides natural and alternative allergy treatment. We can do everything from conducting allergy testing to creating individual treatment plans that use natural or holistic methods to relieve common allergy symptoms.
Using Allergy Testing to Identify Allergens
Conducting an allergy test is the best, and only, way to pinpoint which exact allergens are causing your allergies. This type of testing may be time consuming and somewhat uncomfortable, but it is important to identify what allergens cause a disturbance to your body. When the allergens are identified, health care professionals can create customized treatment plans that help improve your overall health and find allergy relief.
There are two types of allergy tests that can be used: needle testing or needle-free testing, known as electrodermal screening. Both of these tests take specific allergens — such as molds; inhalants such as dust or animal dander; pollen, chemicals, food sensitivities and hormones — and introduce them to the body. If the body reacts to a specific allergen, it is assumed that is what is responsible for the allergies.
Finding Allergy Relief With Acupuncture
Using acupuncture for allergies has become a very popular treatment option for people who experience itchy, watery eyes, sneezing and nasal congestion caused by seasonal allergies. This treatment method is popular because it is relatively pain-free and results can be almost instantaneous.
When using acupuncture for allergies, tiny needles are inserted just under the skin’s surface. The needles are placed at specific points throughout the body that correlate to the symptoms you are experiencing. Some needle manipulation may be needed during your acupuncture session. However, the entire process is virtually pain-free.
Allergy sufferers like using acupuncture because it can provide long-lasting relief of symptoms. Some patients even experience symptom relief within minutes of their first appointment.
