Grab your tissue box. We’re in for a terrible spring allergy season. Experts say that the long winter may cause early-blooming trees to pollinate late this year, which means more trees pollinate at the same time.
About one in five Americans suffer from some kind of allergy, with seasonal allergies the most common, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. While not as severe as food and insect allergies, hay fever can put a real damper on your life—seasonal allergies are responsible for some 4 million missed or lost workdays every year, the National Academy on an Aging Society estimates.
The upside is that if you take your allergies seriously this year, you might feel better and save money.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, we spend over $18 billion per year on over-the-counter allergy medications, most of which only give temporary relief and have side effects like drowsiness and immune system suppression.
Have you wondered why you did not have allergies as a child, but are experiencing them now? I call this the rain barrel theory: Every day and every year, you add more toxins from polluted air, water and processed food to the barrel, and eventually it starts to overflow.
But what if there was a way of emptying the rain barrel? You can get rid of seasonal allergies without taking harsh medications, and the system I am offering is free of side effects, and gets to the root of the problem, ultimately saving you money.
I am referring to a combination of Acupuncture, Allergy desensitization (NAET), and herbal remedies, all of which address the source of the problem, rather than band-aiding the symptoms.
Acupuncture unlocks the power of the immune system, balancing your excess (sneezing, runny nose, headaches, itchy red eyes) and deficiency (fatigue) situations.
Probably the biggest reason to seek out Acupuncture is the amount of money saved. TCM can provide relief without adverse side effects and for a lot less money overall.
