An Oriental Medicine Clinic For Rhinitis

Rhinitis is a common condition that affects many people in the UK. It is characterized by episodes of nasal congestion, watery discharge and sneezing. It can be caused by allergens (like pollen, dust mites, mould spores, fungal spores and flakes of animal skin) or non-allergic causes including viral infections, colds, environmental factors like temperature extremes or humidity, exposure to smoke or noxious fumes, hormonal imbalances and medication such as HRT or birth control pills.비염치료잘하는곳

Allergic rhinitis is the most common form and is referred to as ‘hay fever’. It is triggered by seasonal allergies to grasses and pollen. In between hay fever episodes patients are generally asymptomatic. Modern medicine has antihistamines and decongestants that can improve symptoms temporarily, but long term use can lead to toxicity and side effects.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a safe, natural and effective treatment for both allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. Treatment usually includes herbal formulas (discussed in Will Maclean’s book referenced below) during and between acute episodes of rhinitis, as well as acupuncture. The herbs and formulas treat the root cause of rhinitis, balancing the body’s constitution and relieving the symptoms without causing any adverse side effects.라경찬한의원
