The word “cure” has to be used very loosely when it comes to medical conditions. It’s often a word more associated with marketing a product than a factual case of curing a medical symptom. Having said that, most remedies are either in the form of natural (or homeopathic) solutions or prescribed drugs from antihistamines to worse case scnarios….steroids.
But, what about acupuncture? Though not nearly as common, or convenient for that matter, acupuncture can potentially help one who is suffering from urticaria. Acupuncture won’t just hide the symptoms you’re suffering from but instead will help highlight the areas that may be causing urticaria in the first place. Also, acupuncture is known for helping to alleviate inflammation and even pain within the body caused by many different types of disorders, including hives.
The purpose of acupuncture, when it comes to treating urticaria, is that it will hopefully address the root problem of why one is getting urticaria and provide a solution to permanently get rid of the condition once and for all.
Obviously, you’ll want to get your acupuncture treatment from a qualified acupuncturist. They will know which parts of the body to apply the needles as there are certain points on the body that when stimulated will address certain symptoms. These “trigger points” can help in healing digestive problems, skin diseases, acne, and so on.
So, before taking prescription drugs or even herbs for that matter, if you think acupuncture may be the better solution for you, then talk to your doctor and a qualified acupuncture specialist to see if they can help you get rid of your urticaria once and for all.
