Ragweed allergy season has arrived.
Sinus pressure, itchy, red eyes, scratchy throat- sound familiar? It does to me. Every August ragweed reminds me that it’s my kryptonite. My defense? Traditional Chinese Medicine, of course! Acupuncture can provide relief to allergy sufferers all year. In between needle sessions, I sip on giant cups (okay, maybe not as big as pictured) of ginger tea. As a natural antihistamine and proven to break up congestion, ginger is the perfect complement to acupuncture. Ragweed, my old arch nemesis, meet TCM!
