Many people’s first instinct is to pop an antihistamine like Zyrtec or Claritin and go about their day. Others with more severe allergies take medications consistently to try and prevent the side effects. So are allergic asthma and dermatitis.

But, with our constitution acupuncture treatment, many people can manage their allergic symptoms without any medications or with minimal use. Many medical research has also proven the effects of acupuncture for allergies.

We evaluate your unique body constitution (type) first, and the plan of treatment is determined by your body constitution and your stage of disease.

We are well aware that there is some sort of fundamental physiological divide between each and every one of us. Take food as an example. One person feels much better when they avoid eating meat; another feels so weak that they can’t function well if he tries to be a vegetarian. One person changes her diet plan and eat more vegetables to lower cholesterol after she was diagnosed with high cholesterol. However, she still gets the same or even worse result after having rigorous six month diet. Why does this happen? The answer is simple: We are born different.

Alongside conventional medicine, it is so important to know your body constitution that you can make it easier to manage and recover from the metabolic and hormonal disorder.
