  • accupunture for allergies

    Nov 9, 2016

    My almost adult son (age 20) has allergies to many environmental things. We have done meds and homeopathic treatments and shots through Kaiser. He is now willing to try acupuncture. Does anyone have an accupunture practitioner they recommend for allergies in Berkeley or Oakland? Thanks!

    Dr. Richard Liao on Solano Ave. in Albany. Totally cured me of my seasonal allergies when I moved to the Bay Area at age 24.

    I go to a wonderful acunpuncturist in Mill Valley for allergies.  I know that's not Berkeley or Oakland, but I have found the drive worth it.  Farangis Tavily is a NAET acunpuncturist and this modality gets rid of all your allergies in 12 sessions.  It's truly miraculous.  She was recommended by my chiropractor for removing blocks to vitamins and minerals such as iron, and I found that getting rid of my allergies was a huge bonus (life changing in fact).  This was the first year I didn't have to get prescription allergy medicine during hay fever season! Farangis Tavily's contact number is 415-302-7907 and you can check out NAET at  Good luck!

    HI, I saw your post about multiple allergies for your son.  I have tried acupuncture with limited success.  Some acupuncturists also do NAET, this is an allergy elimination technique that some people find helpful.  I recommend Dr. Jill Cohen, Berkeley Allergy Relief.  You can google her and her work.  She can clear so many more allergens and I have found it so helpful. I was becoming chemically sensitive and she has helped to clear so many of my sensitivities.  I would give her try, she has a free consult appointment.

    Berkeley Acupuncture Project on University Avenue has many wonderful practitioners and sliding scale fees.  The treatments are done in a community room setting, which keeps them affordable.  I see Jorge and Mary, but there are truly many great healers there.  My treatments there have been a life saver for me.  I hope acupuncture works for you and your son!
