Point of the Month: Allergies & Acupuncture

Christopher Reilly L.Ac., MSA Istock chinese medicine

The Stram Center has successfully helped individuals with food allergies using Chinese Medicine.


Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have proven to be powerful tools in the management of food allergy and associated symptoms. The 13th Century classic "Treatise on the Spleen and Stomach" by Li Dong-Yuan is one of many examples of traditional Chinese medicine's emphasis on food, the digestive tract and how both can profoundly affect our health. There are dozens of acupuncture points and hundreds of herbs that function to reduce inflammation and irritation in the digestive tract, as well as manage symptoms related to food allergy such as skin, respiratory and joint problems.

In addition to the depth of the traditional approach, Dr. Devi Nambudripad first started to develop "Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique" in 1983. Her technique, now known and practiced by over a thousand practitioners worldwide, involves the use of acupressure and acupuncture with the client holding a sample of the allergen contained in a glass jar in their hand. The underlying theory of the practice is that the session helps to retrain the body to stay in balance and not become reactive or inflamed in response to exposure.

NAET at the Stram Center has successfully reduced food allergy symptoms for most who have tried it. Adding traditional Chinese medicine and integrative approaches together, as we like to do at the Stram Center, has provided significant relief and increased quality of life for many clients, including symptoms that seemed at first unrelated to food choices.
