Home / Natural Allergy Treatment

At Boca Raton Acupuncture, we provide natural allergy treatment with acupuncture. This treatment relieves most allergy symptoms by reducing the neurological stress responses within your nervous system.

Acupuncture is an effective and virtually painless method that can help retrain your nervous system and your immune system to accept substances that you previously reacted negatively to.

What is an allergy?

An allergy is an inappropriate immune system response to any substance. For example, your immune system is programmed to respond to bacteria and viruses. This is an appropriate response and keeps you healthy. However, when your immune system responds to pollen, dust, cats or dogs this would be an inappropriate response.

When your immune system responds it mounts an inflammatory reaction, which is what typically causes symptoms, such as runny nose, watery eyes, and itching. This immune response can also cause conditions such as asthma, digestive disorders such as IBS, skin disorders such as eczema or psoriasis, allergies to foods, pollen, trees, flowers, chemical allergies or sensitivities, and even migraine headaches!

Natural allergy treatment in Boca Raton

Just as Dr. Ivan Pavlov in 1903 showed that a dog could be trained to salivate through the association of food and an external stimulus (a ringing bell), we can retrain your body to accept substances (allergens) as not potentially harmful to your body. By doing this your immune system will no longer mount a response, allowing your symptoms to improve.

Using sterile acupuncture needles, our physicians will stimulate points along acupuncture meridians that correspond with the major organ systems of your body. The points are chosen after a careful evaluation, incorporating tongue and pulse diagnosis.

The stimulation by the needles strengthens your body’s organ systems and allows your nervous and immune systems to be rebalanced.Β  Once rebalanced, your body will now recognize previously harmful substances as benign and will cease to react negatively to that substance.

This powerfully effective treatment can significantly improve if not eliminate most allergy symptoms and sensitivities. If you have any questions regarding how acupuncture works for allergy, or would like to set up an appointment, please call us atΒ 561-939-0430 for a free consultation.
