Understanding Postnasal Drip: A Sticky Situation

Postnasal drip, that constant trickle down the back of your throat, can make anyone miserable. Itchy eyes, a nagging cough, and a perpetual feeling of being stuffed up are just a few of the joys this condition brings. While conventional over-the-counter medications might offer temporary relief, they often come with unwanted side effects.

If you’re tired of popping pills and searching for a more holistic approach, consider Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM). Rooted in ancient wisdom from across Asia, TAM offers a unique perspective on postnasal drip, treating the root cause rather than just masking the symptoms.

A Wider Lens on Traditional Asian Medicine

While Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a well-known branch of TAM, it’s important to remember that Asia is a vast and diverse continent with a wealth of healing traditions. Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist practicing in Beaverton, Oregon, draws upon TCM but also Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese methodologies to create a comprehensive approach to postnasal drip relief.

“By looking beyond the limitations of a single tradition,” Dr. Sohn explains, “we can access a wider range of tools and techniques to address the specific needs of each individual. Postnasal drip isn’t just about phlegm or imbalances in qi; it can be influenced by dietary factors, emotional stress, and even environmental allergies.”

Acupuncture: Unblocking the Energy Pathways

A cornerstone of TAM, acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body. These points lie along meridians, pathways where energy, or qi, flows. Acupuncturists aim to regulate qi flow, reduce inflammation, and promote healing by stimulating these points.

“In the case of postnasal drip,” Dr. Sohn says, “acupuncture can help to clear congestion in the sinuses, reduce mucus production, and ease drainage. It can also address underlying imbalances that contribute to the condition, such as digestive issues or chronic sinusitis.”

Testimonial: “After years of struggling with postnasal drip, I was skeptical about acupuncture. But I could breathe easier after just a few sessions with Dr. Sohn! My sinuses felt clearer, and the constant drip disappeared. I’m so grateful for his expertise and holistic approach.” – Juliet L., Beaverton

Herbal Medicine: Nature’s Healing Bounty

Traditional Asian Medicine boasts a vast pharmacopeia of natural remedies, and Dr. Sohn skillfully incorporates herbal formulas into his treatment plans. These formulas, often tailored to each patient’s unique constitution, can address a variety of factors contributing to postnasal drip, such as:

  • Dampness: Herbs like Huo Xiang Zheng Qi San can help dispel dampness and phlegm buildup in the sinuses.
  • Heat: Cooling herbs like Yin Chiao Tang can reduce inflammation and ease irritation.
  • Deficiency: Herbs like Si Jun Zi Tang can strengthen the immune system and address underlying deficiencies.

Testimonial: “Dr. Sohn prescribed me an herbal tea blend that soothed my throat and boosted my overall energy. I felt like my body was finally fighting back against the postnasal drip, and it made a huge difference in my quality of life.” – George K., Beaverton
