An individual can be allergic to anything and symptoms can range from mild to debilitating reactions to life-threatening anaphylaxis. Although we do know that allergic symptoms result from an immune system reaction, medical researchers are still working to define the exact nature of allergies. Within Oriental medicine model, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective based on Chinese Medical principles and defined in terms of the effect an allergen has on the energy flow within the body.
In Chinese Medicine theory, energy flows along certain pathways called meridians. When the energy is flowing in balance the body is in a state of health. In the allergic person, the substance that is causing the immune system to react is called an allergen. When the allergen comes in contact with the energy of the body, it causes blockages in the energy pathways or meridians, disrupting the normal energy flow. When this happens, symptoms begin to appear. The goal is to identify this allergen and remove the blockage to the energy flow, which enables the body to return to balance.
Our allergy treatments are very simple, painless, non-invasive technique to help people suffering from allergies. It can be used safely on anyone, from newborn infants to the elderly. It can be used on the chronically ill and it can identify hidden allergies in the healthy, which could potentially cause problems in the future. New chemicals and products are being developed which create potential allergens for many people. Allergy treatments can provide relief from adverse reactions to these new allergens to help individuals live a better life in this modern world.
