What is hay fever?
It’s the body’s response to allergens, so it is an allergic reaction.
Typically, people experience symptoms not unlike a cold: a runny or congested nose, sneezing and headaches.
Many people experience a worsening of these symptoms at certain times of each year, such as winter or spring.
Some people experience the symptoms year-round.
What causes hay fever?
Sure, hay can, but hay is just one trigger that causes this condition.
Others are typically pollen, pet hairs, dust, dust mites, mould and grass.
These irritate the nose, causing inflammation and triggering the immune system to kick in.
It’s the inflammation that sets off the typical symptoms: runny nose, sneezing, red and water eyes, and headache.
How does acupuncture for hay fever work?
While you may already know that acupuncture is effective in reducing pain, did you know that studies researching the way acupuncture works have revealed it has anti-inflammatory actions as well?
Inflammation is involved in quite a few respiratory conditions such as asthma and hay fever.
That’s how acupuncture can have a positive impact on a number of respiratory conditions.
