Allergic rhinitis had been bothering me for in 3 seasons of a year. From spring to autumn, in three months of a year, I used to sneeze again and again because of pollen in the air.

Allergies cause a lot of nasal discharge, which also affects night sleeping quality. Insufficient sleeping also brings many negative effects to my daily life, such as inattention, poor memory, bad temper, and bad appetite, etc.

Allergic rhinitis is the non-infectious chronic inflammation of the nasal mucosa after contact with allergens (such as dust mites, pollen, animal fur, etc.).

It causes by the immune system being affected by allergens in the air.Manifested as sneezing, clear water nasal mucus, nasal itching, nasal congestion, etc..

It can also cause hypoosmia, eyes Itching, conjunctival hyperemia and other manifestations.

Allergic rhinitis also has complications such as sinusitis, pharyngitis, allergic cough, asthma, and otitis media.

Allergic rhinitis is not a trivial problem. So it is better to treat it as soon as possible.

Pathogenesis of Allergic Rhinitis

About 750 years ago, in ancient China, allergic rhinitis was known and treated by traditional Chinese therapies.

Heart Fire: “Sneeze, the nose is the lung orifice, and itching is cremation. The heart is hot, dry in Yangming, and itchy in the nose, then the sneeze is attacked.”

Wind-heat: “The nose is itchy, and heat causes wind.”

Lung heat: “Sneeze, … the nose is the lung orifice, the itching is cremation, then the nose is itchy and sneezing.”

Lung cold: “Those who clear tears are caused by brain cold and lung cold.”

Deficiency of Yang Qi: “If Yang Qi was deficient, then Yin Qi would gather together, making the heart chill and clear tears.”

The examination showed pale or slight edema of the nasal mucosa.

4. Insufficiency of kidney yang:

The course of the disease must be long, regardless of winter and summer, always in a sick state.

All local symptoms are more serious than those with weak qi.
