Health Conditions | Allergies

If you sneeze, cough and wheeze when certain substances accumulate in your house or in the outdoors, you’re not alone. Twenty percent of people in the U.S. suffer from allergies. Unfortunately, both over-the-counter allergy pills and prescription allergy medicines can have unwanted side effects — and they don’t work for everyone.

However, there are other alternatives. Natural health practitioners offer a holistic approach to allergy treatment that addresses the cause of allergies (both internally and externally) and also supports overall immune-system health. Interested in finding out more? Read this section. It should help you breathe easier! Allergies can be treated with naturopathic medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
