An allergy is when your body sees an ordinary substance as foreign. And because it sees the substance as foreign, it does anything it can to combat the substance. When the immune system does overreact and cause allergy, the poor allergy patient makes too much of a substance called, allergic antibody. We call it IgE antibody. It's an inherited tendency; you inherit a general tendency of the immune system to overreact.

Asthma is a disease of the human respiratory system in which the airway narrow, often in response to a “trigger” such as exposure to allergen emotional stress. This narrowing causes symptoms such as wheezing breath, chest tightening, and coughing.

In Chinese Medicine, allergy/asthma are due to weak lungs, spleens and kidneys. Phlegm is generated from weak spleens, the indigestion of substance in the digestive system become toxin (phlegm). The toxin (Phlegm) has no way out so it slowly accumulates inside of your lungs and become dormant phlegm. It got triggered when you suffer from a cold or get exposed to any foreign substance. Kidneys also play an important role in causing allergy/asthma. Kidneys is the storage of Qi (energy), strong kidneys lead to strong energy flow and strong immune system. When a person has weak kidneys via weak immune system, his/her body is vulnerable and easy to react to foreign substances, which induce allergy/asthma. Treatment includes acupuncture, cupping and herbal supplements.
