Many people suffer from allergies, especially during the spring season. As the weather gets warmer you may find yourself with a stuffy nose or itchy eyes more often than you’d like. If you are looking for acupuncture in Smithtown to help treat your allergies, Block Chiropractic Sports & Wellness is here to show you how effective this safe and natural method truly is for relieving allergy symptoms.

Our acupuncturist here at Block Chiropractic Sports & Wellness, Rocco J. Bonavita, will use acupuncture to treat a number of allergy symptoms you may be suffering from this spring. Symptoms like sneezing, runny noses, and swollen or puffy eyes. The way acupuncture works is hair-thin needles will be placed into the skin at different parts of the body. Patients may see improvement as soon as even the first treatment. Others who suffer from severe chronic allergy symptoms may see improvement after engaging in 2 sessions for about 6 weeks. Overall, acupuncture should be able to reduce your symptoms, as well as reduce your dependency on anti-allergy medications by using this natural remedy.

In addition to acupuncture, you can also partake in a number of at-home remedies that can only help with the symptoms of allergies:

  • Apple cider vinegar – increases your potassium, to reduce your runny nose
  • Green Tea – sip two cups a day before allergy season to help avoid congestion.
  • Probiotics – such as yogurt, to support your immune system
  • Hot showers – to clear your sinuses
  • Eucalyptus oil – breathe in for respiratory problems
  • Spicy foods – such as cayenne pepper, onion, garlic, or ginger can thin out mucus
