With entering summer and the pollen count at an all time high, I am seeing more and more patients present with seasonal rhinitis (hay fever).
Affecting around 10-40% of the population worldwide, we are left with niggling and often debilitating symptoms of nasal congestion, sore, itchy eyes, sneezing, tiredness, fever, headaches and sinus pain.
Acupuncture can often offer natural relief for hay fever by helping to control the histamine response, responsible for this seasonal immune disorder.
Acupuncture for Hay Fever
“I have suffered with Hayfever quite severely all of my life and although every year I have relied on antihistamines, eye drops and nose sprays they had little impact on my actual symptoms. I had heard about Acupuncture for hay fever and decided this year it give it a go.
I’ve had a course of acupuncture with the lovely Kim and can honestly say that this years hay fever season has been turned on its head, I haven’t use antihistamines or sprays once this year.
Thanks Kim for making my summer much more enjoyable.”
