Wind Cold Presentation VS Wind Heat Presentation
As we all know, allergies can be a frustrating and uncomfortable experience. In Chinese medicine, we treat the underlying cause rather than just treating the symptoms. This means that we focus on treating the weak or imbalanced systems in the body that may be causing the allergies. Stress is an important factor when it comes to allergies. Increased stress levels can make individuals more reactive to allergens. Allergies represent an attempt by the body to enclose harmful foreign substances.
Two Forms of presentations your acupuncturist will search for
Wind Cold Presentation is a type of allergic reaction that can make you have a lot of clear mucus coming from your nose. You might also sneeze a lot, have a stuffy nose, feel like there's mucus going down your throat, feel tired, and have a weak or painful lower back. You might feel chilly, and you might be worried about safety more than usual. This is because your body's energy is low, and it's affecting your adrenal glands and kidneys.
When we check your tongue, it might look pale and swollen. We'll also check your pulse, especially in the deep, third position on your right wrist, and it might feel weak or deep.
Wind Heat Presentation is present if you're experiencing inflammation and heat symptoms like sinus congestion, headaches, and burning eyes. This is caused by an imbalance in your liver and gall bladder meridians and heat in your lung meridian. Treating those channels will help your body cope with the response to environmental irritants like pollen.
You might notice your tongue is red with scalloped edges and a yellow coat, and your pulse will feel tight, rapid, or wiry.
