Yes, both acupuncture and herbal medicine can boost immunity and also support you during allergy season. We often recommend for patients to start the season prior to the one they are most symptomatic.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine can also shorten the duration of a cold/flu and help prevent them from reoccurring by supporting your immunity.
For example-someone who's Asthma and allergies are worse in winter would be best served by coming in fall to start treatments.
We can also help treat allergy symptoms too using herbs or acupuncture or both. Symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes, stuffy noses and sneezing can start to improve often after the first treatment. It is most effective to do a weekly session for a few weeks before the full benefit is felt.
