"Acupuncture as an aid in respiratory ailments might be safer than the prolonged use of drugs," according to Kim Jobst, M.D., of University of Oxford (United Kingdom), in an article written for the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
Treatment with acupuncture can dramatically ease someone's allergic reactions. In some cases, it can actually help the person tolerate what used to cause the sneezing and wheezing. "Health A to Z".
I find it gratifying to treat allergies with acupuncture. There is often a quick response.I have seen many patients who failed medication and allergy shots respond to acupuncture. Patients continue with whatever standard treatments they are currently undergoing while getting acupuncture treatments. Most patients end up significantly reducing or eliminating their dependence on allergy medicine. it is my opinion that acupuncture is an excellent treatment option for allergies. Instead of using chemicals like an antihistamine to control an allergic reaction, acupuncture works with the person's internal pharmacy. There's also evidence that acupuncture can stimulate immune function changes.
An allergy attack is an immune response. The body's immune system becomes sensitive and reacts to substances called allergens such as pollen, dust, animal dander, molds, food and medications.
