From Chinese Medicine’s point of view, there are several factors that might weaken your body’s ‘Qi’ vital energy which can lead to hay fever: inherited susceptibility; excess use of antibiotics; a poor diet or emotional disorders such as stress, worry and anxiety.
In Chinese Medicine, hay fever is a seasonal disease caused by pollen which belongs to ‘wind’ on the background of vital energy deficiency. Wind-heat blocks the lung energy causing blocked and running nose and watering eyes, common symptoms of hay fever.
