Acupuncture and Herbal Remedies at an Oriental Medicine Clinic for Rhinitis

Rhinitis — more commonly known as “hay fever” – is one of the most common health problems in the world, afflicting hundreds of millions of people. While hay fever is most often associated with seasonal allergies to grasses and pollens, it can also be brought on by a variety of non-allergic triggers. It is characterized by attacks of sneezing with profuse watery nasal discharge and nose congestion.비염한의원

Traditional Chinese medicine has shown that acupuncture and herbal medicine can significantly reduce the primary symptoms of hay fever. Acupuncture and herbs can be used to treat the underlying causes of rhinitis as well as during acute episodes. Acupuncture and herbs have been shown to reduce the need for oral antihistamines, decongestants and steroids, which have long term side effects.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, rhinitis is a manifestation of imbalanced energy (qi and blood) in the lung, kidney and spleen. The resulting inflammatory response manifests in the form of sneezing, nasal discharge, itching of the eyes, nose and throat, and congestion of the sinuses, ears, pharynx and eustachian tubes. Traditional Chinese medicine can address the root cause of rhinitis and treat all the related symptoms to help patients find relief and avoid recurrence. *Allergic rhinitis is most commonly caused by seasonal pollens and may coexist with vasomotor rhinitis, which is triggered by autonomic factors such as hormones, drugs or food.라경찬한의원
