With Tucson facing a megadrought along with winds that come with our Spring, allergies are at an all-time high.
If you are suffering from itchy water eyes, sneezing or a running nose you aren’t alone.
What are allergies?
The definition of allergies is “a damaging immune response by the body to a substance, especially pollen, fur, a particular food, or dust, to which it has become hypersensitive.”
In Tucson spring means windy days, those winds are carrying not only dust and pollen but ragweed and chemical pollutants. All these things can cause our bodies to have that immune response, symptoms might include:
- itchy and/or red eyes
- itchy palate
- itchy and runny nose
- sneezing and nasal congestion (allergic rhinitis)
- difficulty breathing
Acupuncture and herbs can help relieve these symptoms and give you the much-needed relief you need.
