Allergies Q & A

What causes my allergies?

This is an excellent question because it will be the first step toward an effective treatment. Determining the cause of your allergies can go a long way toward effectively treating them. Allergic reactions are triggered by allergens, to which your body responds with a host of symptoms. The allergens that affect you could be found in animal dander, pollen, dust mites, or food. Understanding what is causing this reaction in your body can help you minimize exposure to it, and consequently minimize your symptoms.

For example, if dust mites are the issue, adding an air purifier in your home could do the trick. If pollen is the problem, minimizing outdoor time during certain seasons and certain times of day can help you live a more comfortable life. If food is triggering the allergic reaction, identifying that food and removing it from your diet can give you immediate, long-lasting relief.

What can you do to treat allergies?

Dr. Lim can put together a comprehensive allergy treatment plan for you. In addition to making certain lifestyle changes, like those listed above, your plan may also include over-the-counter or prescription drugs. Finding the right allergy medication can take time. Dr. Lim will work with you to find a treatment that delivers results.

Beyond medication and lifestyle changes, acupuncture and allergy shots can also be used to treat your allergies and alleviate your symptoms.

Does acupuncture work for allergies?

Yes, Dr. Lim can use acupuncture to minimize your allergic reactions, helping you enjoy your life without sneezing, itchy eyes, a runny nose, and more. Studies have shown that acupuncture can help people suffering from allergies find relief from their symptoms.

Acupuncture is a safe, natural allergy treatment. If you’re interested in minimizing your symptoms without having to regularly introduce a medication into your body, this solution could be right for you.

Some patients will see relief after the first session, while others may benefit from recurring visits. Dr. Lim can work with you to set up the right course of action to effectively treat your allergies.
