Acupuncture for Hives | Natural Cures & Remedies

Hives, also known as urticaria, affects about 20 percent of people at some time during their lives. It can be triggered by many substances or situations and usually starts as an itchy patch of skin that turns into swollen red welts. The itching may be mild to severe. Scratching, alcoholic beverages, exercise and emotional stress may worsen the itching.

What Causes Hives?

Allergic hives form when, in response to histamine,blood plasma leaks out of small blood vessels in the skin. Histamine is a chemical released from specialized cells along the skin's blood vessels.
Allergic reactions, chemicals in certain foods, insect stings, sunlight exposure, or medications can all cause histamine release. It's often impossible to find out exactly why hives have formed. In General,  people who suffer from hives due to their low immunity function,Acupuncture & Herbs can Boost Immunity Power Naturally . It has been proven that acupuncture is an effective form of treatment for Hives, usually it will take 1-4 times treatments to reduce the itchy and rashes. For Chronic Hives it needs regular treatments(2-3 times/week) for at least one to two months. Also the treatment results depend on patients's condition. Some respond extremely well but some seem very slow. For natural food therapy ,you can also try the steam eggs custard with pure sesame oil for at lease 7 days. During the treatment period, NO seafood, NO alcohol, NO Coffee or strong tea, NO spicy.

荨麻疹俗称“风疹块”,是由于皮肤、黏膜小血管扩张及渗透性增加而出现的一种局限性水肿反应。临床表现为大小不等的局限性风团,骤然发生,迅速消退,瘙痒剧烈,愈后不留任何痕迹,有的病人尚有发热、腹痛等全身症状。有15%~20%的人一生中至少发过一次荨麻疹。
  本病属于中医学“风瘙瘾疹”、“风疹”的范畴。
  病因病机
  发病原因不外内外两端,内因禀赋不足,外因风邪为患。由于卫表不固,感受风寒或风热之邪,客于肌肤,致使营卫不和;或因饮食不节,内有湿热、食滞,外受风邪侵袭,使内不得疏泄,外不能透达,郁于肌肤而发。慢性荨麻疹多由情志不遂,肝郁不舒,郁久化火,耗伤阴血,或因脾气虚弱,湿热虫积,或因冲任失调,经血过多,或因久病耗气伤血等,均可致营血不足、生风生燥、肌肤失养所致。
  辨证分型
  风热犯表:风团色红,灼热剧痒,遇热加重,伴发热,咽喉肿痛;苔薄黄,脉浮数。
  风寒束表:风团色白,遇风寒加重,得暖则减,伴恶寒;舌淡苔薄白,脉浮紧。
  肠胃实热:风团色红,成块成片,伴脘腹疼痛、恶心呕吐、便秘或泄泻;苔黄腻,脉滑数。
  血虚风燥:风疹反复发作,迁延日久,午后或夜间加剧,心烦少寐,口干,手足心热;舌红少苔,脉细数无力。
