Vimacel immune system research into alternative forms of health and wellness is our passion. For those not familiar with what an allergy is, it is when the body’s immune system misidentifies a normally harmless substance as a threat to the body. A substance that causes a reaction is called an allergen. These reactions are acquired, predictable, and rapid. Allergic reactions are distinctive because of excessive activation of certain white blood cells called mast cells and basophils by a type of antibody called Immunoglobulin E (IgE).

Common allergens are pollen, animal dander, some foods, mold, drugs, and dust mites, just to name a few. The inflammatory reaction that occurs is an attempt to get rid of the substance from your system. This reaction results in an inflammatory response which can range from uncomfortable to dangerous. Symptoms of allergies are sneezing, running nose, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, hives, breathing difficulties, and much more.
Many people choose to take over-the-counter (OTC) allergy pharmaceuticals when they have allergies. The problem is that while many over-the-counter remedies promise symptomatic relief, they rely on inhibiting the allergic response; antihistamines (Chlor-trimetron, Benadryl, etc.) are a good example. Other types of drugs used to treat allergic rhinitis or asthma include ones which act on the nervous system (Albuterol, epinephrine), cortico-steroids (prednisone), and decongestants.
The problem is that they only make you feel dull and groggy and mask the symptoms instead of addressing the cause of allergies. If you are looking for an all natural alternative method acupuncture is an excellent treatment option for seasonal allergies. Acupuncture treats the whole person, and focuses on balancing the immune system which leads to substantial long-term health benefits in managing allergies.
Recently there was an article published in February in the Annals of Internal Medicine, it found acupuncture led to significant improvement in quality of life and antihistamine use. If you are suffering from fall allergies Vimacel encourages you to look into acupuncture as a treatment plan to restore your health and breathe easy again.
