Acupuncture for Allergies in Longboat Key
Most people think of acupuncture for relieving back pain or headaches, but acupuncture for allergies in Longboat Key is gaining popularity as more and more people are finding relief.
We are smack dab in the middle of allergy season and its shaping up to be a bad one this year. In addition, if you live in the Longboat Key area and have mold allergies, the recent storms and rain will produce more mold to aggravate the condition.
Prescription and over-the-counter medications are widely available, but can cause unpleasant side effects and do not treat the cause. Acupuncture for allergies in the hands of a qualified, licensed practitioner, cannot only relieve allergy symptoms, but can also help enhance and restore balance to the body’s entire immune function. Clearing the underlying immune weakness that causes allergies and illness can prevent you from getting sick.
How does Acupuncture Help?
Two decades of intensive medical research, scientists have firmly established that Acupuncture works. Acupuncture increases immune function which is the production of the body’s so-called “natural killer cells”. This is the body’s primary defense mechanisms against organisms that make us sick. Acupuncture treatments have a system-wide effect on optimizing and re-balancing the relationship between the complex, interconnected body systems (including Digestive, Endocrine, Lymphatic, and Nervous Systems, etc.) that work together to create what we call the Immune System.
The beauty of Chinese Medicine is that with all of its complexities and now with its firm scientific backing, it’s still based on a simple principle: that the mind and body are not viewed as separate parts and pieces, but as part of an energetic, interconnected system. That holistic philosophy is always present in the mind of a TCM practitioner and is reflected continuously throughout the entire theory and practice of the medicine.

At the Longevity Wellness Clinic, we go though your health history, observe your symptoms and signs, ask about your stress level, emotions, and take into account your absolute uniqueness as an individual. With this information, we can determine the underlying imbalances you and your body are experiencing. Although we will focus on easing your fever, headache, sore throat, coughing, phlegm-factory, body aches, runny/stuffy nose, itchy/watery eyes, sneezing fits and whatever else you’re suffering from so you feel better, the correction of the “root condition” leading to your weakened immune function will ultimately be the target of your Acupuncture treatments. And the “even better news” is we can treat both your symptoms and your immunity at the same time.
