Allergic Conditions

Osteopathic and Acupuncture treatment for allergies in North London and Woking

Allergic conditions such as hay fever can often be treated with acupuncture

Acupuncture for Hayfever

Allergic conditions – symptoms of running nose, sneezing, and watery, itchy eyes that recur during specific times of the year –  are a cause of much suffering for many.

Western medicine views seasonal allergies as a form of an immediate hypersensitivity reaction which occurs when anti-bodies, produced by lymphocytes, interact with airborne particles such as pollen.

A modern approach to treatment of allergic conditions includes such treatments as anti-histamines and in some cases steroids to help modify the allergic response.

I have often witnessed Acupuncture giving highly effective results beyond what anti-histamines and steroids can achieve and more importantly, offering a longer term solution.

Asthma

Sometimes called reversible obstructive airways disease. This condition can be allergic in nature or can sometimes be caused in an adult by environmental factors or a virus.

Both Osteopathy and Acupuncture can be helpful in at least alleviating some of the symptoms so that a patient may be able to reduce the amount of medication they take or indeed in some cases do without completely.
