This April was very rainy. This change in weather causes people to have flare-ups related to various conditions such as pain, migraines, allergies, and sinus problems.
With the month of May, we are brought a lot of blooming flowers along with tree pollen and triggers for allergy issues. One beneficial flower we used in Chinese medicine to combat these issues is Chrysanthemum flower. The Chrysanthemum flower is wonderful for warding off illness and allergies (red eyes, itchy nose, itchy throat, and irritability).
At Michigan Acupuncture Studio, Chrysanthemum tea is available for purchase and it’s become very popular among our regular patients.
*BONUS* After using the teabag for your tea, you can use the tea bag on your eyes to decrease irritation, redness, and generate a calming effect.
