Hay fever can be hereditary or be caused by a disturbance in the immune system.
Stress can disrupt the effective working of mucous membranes.
Acupuncture in combination with Chinese herbs can restore the balance of energy in the body, which can reduce or completely relieve the symptoms of hay fever.
For the most effective treatment of hay fever, the patient is advised to visit the acupuncturist prior to the 'hay fever seasons' (spring and fall). Nevertheless, acupuncture is also effective at providing relief from active hay fever.
