Are you one of millions of people who suffer the devastating effects of chronic sinus and allergy problems?
Sinus symptoms can present in many ways. Often, patients have a combination of symptoms:
- Nasal congestion
- Chest congestion
- Drainage (nose and throat)
- Sinus pressure in the forehead, cheekbones, and behind the eyes
- Ear pressure and popping
- Sinus infections (acute and chronic)
- Runny nose
- Watery eyes
- Sinus headaches
While some sinus symptoms can be acute, most point to an overall weakness in the immune system and your body’s ability to metabolize fluids. Over time, these weaknesses can cause mucous and phlegm to accumulate in the nasal passages and lungs, which can become difficult to expel. If left untreated, it can become chronic and you may experience reoccurring symptoms year after year.
Acupuncture can help to strengthen the immune system so that your body can fight external allergens more easily. It can also help your body get rid of any extra mucous and phlegm.
