Allergic conditions such as hayfever, eczema and asthma are indications of a weakened immune system operating out of control. When your immune system is strong and healthy it identifies things that are going to harm the body (pathogens) and eliminates them, it also identifies things that irritate but don’t harm the body (allergens) and helps the body clear them. A strong and health immune system has the capacity to control and monitor the immune response.
When you immune system gets weakened, it starts to mistake allergens for pathogens and instead of calmly clearing them from the body, the immune system mounts an out of control attack. This is the immune reaction that you see when someone is allergic to something.
The immune system gets weakened by physical and emotional stresses on the body such as excessive work or exercise, emotional traumas and chronic or serious illnesses. Children will often have allergies while their immune system is developing, because their immature immune systems have trouble controlling their immune response.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine focuses on tonifying the lung meridian, restoring the flow of qi and clearing wind, heat and toxin from the lung meridian. Chinese herbs can help to clear stagnation and restore the function of the body fluids.
