SPRING ALLERGY SEASON IS HERE!
I am so not ready for the following symptoms to occur
- Itchy, red eyes and/or
- Watery eyes
- Itchy nose, ears
- Constant nose running
- Difficulty breathing, asthma
The long, cold winter is over…Spring is ever-so-slowly springing. Which means allergies will be springing as well. So is it back to the drugstore for more meds? Or is this the year you try something different?
Every year more clinical studies come out in favor of using acupuncture vs pharmaceutical drugs to relieve allergy symptoms.
Research shows that acupuncture can regulate the physiological chemicals, cytokines, involved in allergic reactions. When the cytokines are hit with an irritant, it causes inflammation and in turn the allergy symptoms you are used to seeing—sneezing, itchiness, runny nose and eyes…
Acupuncture treatments reduce allergic reactions using a specialized technique aimed at the inflammation points in the body triggered by allergens. Consistent acupuncture treatment helps keep the inflammation down to prevent and lessen disruptive allergy symptoms, so you can get back to enjoying the warm (hopefully) spring weather!
NatureMed Acupuncture was formed by Oleg Rivkin, who has experience in both Western and Eastern treatments. It is through this lens he concluded that when possible, pharmaceutical-free treatment has the best curative powers for most of the pain and symptoms people express.
Oleg has worked in holistic healing for over 20 years, much of that time in hospital and clinical environments, alongside physicians and physical therapists. In his own practice, Oleg is experienced in pain management, headaches and migraines, stress and anxiety, neck and back pain, cardiovascular conditions, cancer care, athletic performance and recovery, post-surgical recovery, men’s health, and women’s reproductive health.
Oleg holds a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, along with a B.S. in Nutrition from the same institution. He has additional, specialized training with Wei Chien Young, O.M.D, R.O.C. in Master Tung’s Acupuncture and trained with Dr. Richard Tan on Richard Tan’s Balanced Method
