Spring is here!

Blossoms and buds are preparing themselves for full bloom, giving us beauty to enjoy and allergies to endure. Ugh.

Seasonal allergies are miserable and uncomfortable, especially when everything outside is so beautiful and enticing but the itchy, sneezy, stuffy, runny head and nose, stinging, watering eyes, cloudy thinking, sinus pressure, and headache are not pleasant ways to usher in spring.

First off: get acupuncture now! It can really help to relieve allergy symptoms.

Also, Element carries a wide range of allergy and immune boosting herbs, including AllerEase; Kick It Allergy (adult, kid, and pregnancy-safe formulations); Kick It Sinus (adult, kid, and pregnancy-safe formulations); Nasal Rinse (spray); Nasal Wash (spray); and Chinese herbal formulations in powder form Yu Ping Feng San. This formula can also be modified with Cang Er San for more nasal complaints; tea pills such as Bi Yan Pian for nasal congestion; herbal pills like Jade Screen and Xanthium and Jade Windscreen, grapefruit seed extract, colloidal silver, and quercenase to name a few. We make the formulas specific to each allergy complaint, specializing in finding the best combination for you.

Enjoy this time of the year by kicking those allergies to the curb. Look and feel as good as spring!
