Allergies & Asthma
In treating allergies, conventional medicine very narrowly focuses on using drugs that desensitize the body or block histamines that produce the familiar symptoms, such as itching eyes, sneezing and congestion.
This symptomatic approach may provide modest relief, but it does not get to the root of what causes the red eyes, runny nose, congestion and other irritating and painful symptoms of allergies.
Long lasting natural relief, not just a quick fix of allergy symptoms
Too often, conventional allergy relief is achieved only by medications acting on your nervous system. In addition, many are simply told to avoid sources or places where an allergen may be present. Often that's very inconvenient and far easier said than done.
At SFNM we take a holistic view of allergies and asthma, seeing them through the lens of naturopathic medicine.
We are experts in using effective natural techniques, often including traditional Chinese medicine, to identify any deficiencies in your body that may be the source of reactions and then restoring your body's natural balance.
Reduce severity and frequency of attacks with a comprehensive, individualized plan
Our whole person approach is both comprehensive and individualized.
We start by addressing the immediate symptoms with natural approaches that may include acupuncture and herbal therapies. We can, if needed, test for both food and inhalant allergies and sensitivities.
After helping you manage symptoms effectively and naturally, we then develop a comprehensive long range plan utilizing a combination of customized natural therapies to restore your immune system's balance.
These precisely selected therapies are designed to modify your response to your environment and to reduce the frequency and severity of future allergic responses.
The result is lasting relief.
You manage your allergies with none of the common side effects of allergy medicines, such as drowsiness or immune system suppression, and none of the long term over reliance on medications.
