ALLERGIES (ATOPIC DISEASE)
Health problems due to allergic reactions – whether to types of food, pollen, dust, or a whole host of other substances – seem to be well and truly on the rise in the developed world. Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches these problems holistically – as well as focusing on the actual symptoms of the allergic reaction, we aim to understand why that reaction is there in the first place, and help you to gradually strengthen your body’s defences so that immunity is enhanced.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine these defences are constituted by what is termed the ‘defensive Qi’, that part of our vital energy which protects us from incoming entities which may threaten our health and well being. Given the proliferation of such things as environmental pollutants and food additives, there is a greater need than ever for this ‘defensive Qi’ to be functioning optimally; our approach aims to discover why this may not always be the case, and how best to remedy it.
