How it is Diagnosed and What It Is
Allergies are where your immune system reacts to something that is usually harmless to you and your body. There are different types of tests that one of our specialists can perform on you to determine if you have allergies. There are food allergy tests, skin allergy tests, blood tests for allergies, and elimination diets to help determine the diagnosis and cause of your allergies. For your first visit, make sure to bring as much information about your history and symptoms with you as you can. The more information you give us, the easier it will be for us to diagnose and treat your allergies.
Common Causes of and Reasons for Allergies
There are several common causes and reasons people get allergies. Many things can cause allergies. Some causes include:
- Dust and dust mites
- Certain foods
- Bee stings
- Some vaccines
- Certain medications
- Animal Dander
Allergies can also be triggered by exercise, minor injuries, extreme temperatures, and your emotions. Some families have certain allergies that are hereditary. You can also develop allergies if you have sensitive skin, a severe allergic reaction, eczema, nasal polyps, lung issues such as asthma, and respiratory, sinus, and ear infections.
How Acupuncture Can Help Manage and Treat Allergies
Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese treatment, can help with the treatment and management of allergies. Acupuncture has been known to help eliminate puffy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and other symptoms of allergies. Tiny needles are strategically placed just under the skin all over the body. Acupuncture helps correct energy balances in the body through these needles. The newly balanced energy helps the body fight off symptoms of allergies. Treatments usually last 30 minutes to an hour, based on your diagnosis and treatment plan.
Once tests are done to determine the cause of your allergies, one of our specialists will discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan. One session will not be enough. The number of sessions required will be discussed after your diagnosis. A combination of other treatments, such as massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments, may be recommended as well.
