Allergy Treatment

What is an allergy?

An allergy occurs when your immune system overreacts to a substance it considers foreign or dangerous, even though it may not be. When you come in contact with the substance, your immune system may cause a reaction that affects your skin, respiratory system, or digestive tract.

In some cases, the reaction may be so severe that you go into anaphylactic shock, which is a life-threatening reaction that requires immediate medical attention.

What are common allergens?

You can develop an allergy to any substance, but some allergies are more common than others. Common allergens include:

  • Pollen, grass, or dust
  • Pet dander
  • Food such as peanuts, seafood, milk, wheat, soy, and tree nuts
  • Medication
  • Insects

You may be at risk of developing allergies if it runs in your family. Children are also more likely to develop allergies than adults, although you can develop an allergy at any age.

What are common allergy symptoms?

Your allergy symptoms may vary depending on the substance to which you’re allergic and the body system it affects. Common allergy symptoms include:

  • Itchy eyes and throat
  • Runny nose
  • Hives
  • Sneezing
  • Wheezing
  • Swelling of your tongue or throat

Some allergies even cause changes to your skin, making it red, itchy, and flaky. This is referred to as atopic dermatitis or eczema and can be very disruptive to your quality of life.

What can I expect with allergy treatment?

Dr. Moshkovich uses the NAET strategy to treat allergies. This innovative technique is a drug-free, noninvasive natural solution that can be used to treat any allergy.

NAET uses a combination of energy balancing techniques, including acupuncture, acupressure, and nutrition, to treat your allergies. The technique works by desensitizing you to the allergen so your immune system no longer causes an overreaction.

During your NAET session, Dr. Moshkovich treats one allergy at a time. With a mild allergy, you may only need one session. Dr. Moshkovich develops a personalized treatment plan when you come in for allergy treatment so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

Allergies can significantly affect your quality of life. For a holistic allergy treatment approach, contact Nirvana Naturopathics today or request an appointment online.
