Allergies! So many of us experience them. From environmental and seasonal allergies to food allergies, they make us feel awful. Burning eyes, wheezing, runny noses, gas, bloating and foggy thinking are just some of the symptoms allergy sufferers experience. Americans filled 4.3 billion prescriptions and doled out nearly $374 billion on medicine in 2014, according to the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.
Acupuncture is a very effective, safe and natural alternative for those looking for long-term relief without having to take medication every day. I have been treating allergies for over 10 years successfully. Using NAET and Allergy Elimination techniques, there have been very few allergies that I haven’t been able to eliminate or manage successfully. Most patients do a series of 6-10 visits. If your allergies are particularly severe or if you have had them for over a decade, treatment times might take longer. Treatment consists of acupuncture and occasionally herbal medicine depending on the severity of the allergy. Most people need no further treatment once completing acupuncture treatments. Some need to come in anywhere from every 3-6 months to once a year.
Some of the allergies we treat successful with acupuncture are:
Other environmental allergies
Gluten (gluten sensitivities and allergies are treatable with this method but not Celiac which is an autoimmune disease and requires a completely different approach. Contact us for acupuncture treatments if you suffer from Celiac Disease.)
Tree nuts and peanuts
Animal allergies such as

This was my first time doing acupuncture and I wanted to try it out for my anxiety disorder. I wasn’t sure what to expect, except that I was going to have needles in my body so I was nervous. Bina is very nice and listens to what you have to say. The acupuncture has definitely changed my life and my anxiety has been more manageable.
Not only did acupuncture help with my anxiety disorder, but it helped with my food allergies/sensitivities as well as environmental allergies. I had mentioned to Bina that I frequently felt bloated and foggy headed after eating certain foods and we did muscle testing and I found out I had a sensitivity to gluten, dairy, eggs, and a number of other things. She had told me that acupuncture can help me with the allergens and sensitivities and I had no idea that acupuncture could help with that. After a few treatments, I felt significantly better and less bloated and less foggy headed.
I once came in when I had allergies (coughing, sneezing) and after a single treatment, I felt completely better after 2 days!
Bina is really great and sweet. I highly recommend her if you want to do acupuncture. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and it is very powerful and I recommend it to everyone.
I started having an allergic reaction to tofu that would make my skin break out in a rash that the doctors called allergic dermatitis. Being a vegan, tofu is a big part of my diet. It was my first time using acupuncture and I wasn’t sure what to expect. After the first treatment, the rash was quieter, less red and less raised. After the 7th treatment, I could eat tofu again without breaking out in a rash. In addition to the acupuncture, I also had to use a herbal wash that Bina made for me. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Bina!
I had a great experience working with Bina Jangda to help alleviate the allergy symptoms I experience each spring. She was knowledgeable, efficient and confident in her abilities to help me, and I felt comfortable following her recommendations for herbal and dietary measures in addition to having the deeply relaxing acupuncture treatments. After a series of perhaps 6 weekly sessions, I have indeed experienced a significant reduction in the allergy symptoms that I would normally be experiencing this time of year. Thank you Bina!
I started seeing Bina just after my son fell in love with and brought home a cat. I had no idea that acupuncture could address allergic reactions and asthmatic reactions too. I had both and had them pretty severely with the cat in the house. Yet, I wasn’t ready to give up on my boy’s dream and I wasn’t an easy “case”. Bina treated me and I am so happy that I am now able to live in a house with a cat—it’s something that I never thought would be possible.
I came to see Bina on a referral from a friend who had seen her for her allergies. I wasn’t so hopeful that it would work. I have taken several allergy medications daily and have for the past 10 years. I have an air purifier in my room because my allergies are so bad. This year the pollen has been the worst and nothing is helping. After 1 treatment and the first 24 hours, I could breath better and my eyes stopped burning. Now 10 treatments later, I’m not taking any medications daily. I completely amazed at the effects. Bina explained that it might be that I have to have a booster treatment ever 4-6 months. I’m got my fingers crossed that the allergies are gone for good. If they aren’t, I’m okay with coming in once every 4-6 months. It better taking allergy medications.
Thank you to Bina for treating my son for allergies. He went from taking 3 prescription medications to taking nothing in 15 treatments. He can even sit in grass without starting to wheeze. I’m a true believer.
In my early twenties, I suffered from an increasing number of allergies. The symptoms got worse over the next 15 years. I experience hay fever and pollen allergies to the point of not being able to breathe at all through my nose. I was always coughing and wheezing. Over time, I stopped being able to digest all dairy products and I love cheese. Dairy caused severe gas and diarrhea. After receiving no help from the medical doctors, I found Bina. To be honest, I was 90% skeptical and 100% desperate and hoping for a miracle. Bina has been treating allergies for 10 years. The results were almost immediate. By then end of treatment, I could breath and the best was I could eat cheese again without out any side effects. Surprisingly, I found that many of my symptoms were related to allergies. I’ve feel so much better now. Acupuncture has worked for me, long after western medicine had reached its limit.
Out of nowhere my daughter started breaking out with hives whenever she ate fruit including tomatoes. The doctors were no helped and told be she would grow out of it in time. 3 months later, she was still breaking out in hives and the symptoms were getting worse. Through a referral from a friend I brought her to Bina. In 6 treatments she was eating fruit again. Thank you!
