Allergies and Asthma

Allergic rhinitis or seasonal allergies affects about 1 in 5 people and is an allergic response to indoor or outdoor airborne allergens due to an over-reactivity of the immune system. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition of the lungs and airways that can be related to allergies. Both of these conditions can be incredibly difficult to live with, affecting energy levels and moods, as well as health, work, sports and hobbies, and quality of life. The great news is that acupuncture can help.

 Acupuncture is an effective treatment option for allergy and asthma symptoms and can help:

  • Relieve allergy symptoms like itchy eyes, sinus pressure and congestion, sneezing, and runny nose
  • Increase in overall energy levels
  • Relieve the symptoms of asthma attacks and reduce the frequency and severity of the attacks
  • Correct and strengthen the immune system to prevent future flare ups of allergies or asthma
“I’ve suffered from allergies for a long time, after becoming frustrated with the ‘off-the-shelf type products’ I thought I’d try a natural alternative. From the initial contact with Okanagan Acupuncture I was impressed with their thoroughness in answering my questions and alleviating any concerns. After 2 treatments my symptoms have decreased significantly and I’m optimistic that the results will continue. I’m confident in recommending OAC to anyone suffering from seasonal allergies, especially to anyone who has tried every available drugstore type anti allergy product and become frustrated with diminishing results.” -D.M., Peachland, BC
