Suffering from Allergies? Here are a few natural remedies to try
Cedar season is here and spring allergies are just around the corner. Here are a few ways to keep your symptoms from controlling your life!
Essential Oils & Homeopathic Formulas
Essential oils can be diffused or diluted and applied to the skin to help ease symptoms and improve your immune system. If you're suffering from Cedar allergies specifically, we recommend Cedar X® essential oil blend for a quick and easy topical that also has a pleasant smell. Homeopathic formulas are usually added to a small amount of water or can sometimes be dropped directly under the tongue. Mold allergies are year round in South Texas and our Mold Relief Formula is an easy and effective homeopathic with no taste and no alcohol.
Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs
Acupuncture can relieve many issues, including allergies, by telling your body where to focus its own healing mechanisms. Acupuncture also helps to lower stress levels, which can often be in overdrive when allergies are bothering you. Chinese herbal formulas work with acupuncture to help your body continue to heal itself in between acupuncture sessions. The herbs prescribed by a Licensed Acupuncturist are safe and have fewer side effects than over-the-counter medications. Chinese herbs come in a variety of forms including powder, pills, tea and tinctures.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
The lymphatic system is the body's second largest circulatory system and helps to filter out impurities including foreign materials such as allergens. Manual Lymphatic Drainage can help your natural immune response by encouraging a healthy flow of lymph and assisting the body's natural detoxification methods. Lymphatic Drainage is very gentle and relaxing and is a great way to boost your immune system naturally.
