Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture in Autumn

Chinese medicine and acupuncture is often a misunderstood treatment option, and so over the next year our resident practitioner Robin Burby will be going through various health areas where Chinese medicine and acupuncture can be beneficial to your health, and at times offer alternative treatment options to acute/chronic conditions.

Today’s blog is concerned with the upper respiratory tract, i.e. the sinuses, allergies, post nasal drip and a low immune system.  Through Chinese medical diagnosis, it can be discerned what is underlying your symptoms and how best to treat the root cause.

We are now well into autumn, and within Chinese medicine we associate this time of year with allergies and sinus infections.  You may have noticed the odd sneeze, or maybe a dry cough, or even a cold that is just lingering on and won’t go.  You may be finding that you’re sensitive to the cold weather and finding it difficult to get warm, or maybe you have started having more regular headaches.  Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture can be extremely helpful in strengthening your immune system to shake off these issues and get you back on track, breathing freely and feeling full of energy again!

It is also common at this time of year for your asthma to start to flare up or for you to develop a dry cough.  Again, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture may be of help in supporting your regular control of asthma and help you take back control.
