Acupuncture and Allergies
"Acupuncture is more effective than antihistamine drugs in the treatment of Hayfever and without any harmfull side effects" (The World Health Organisation).
As Acupuncture practice gains respect in the Western world, many allergy sufferers are choosing acupuncture over antihistamine drugs.
Whether you are allergic to dairy or shellfish, pollen or dog hair. Accupuncture can help, an acupuncturist treats the individual, not only the symptoms, allergy symptoms are indicators of a deeper imbalance in a person's system.
An allergy attack is an immune response, the bodies immune system becomes sensitive and reacts to substances called allergens such as pollen, dust, animal dander, molds, food and medications
Acupuncture works by altering the secretion of neurotransmitters, neurohormones and the regulation of blood flow, both centrally and peripherally, Acupuncture also stimulates and balances the bodies immune functions.
The World Health Organisation reported that "Acupuncture is more effective than antihistamine drugs in the treatment of Hayfever and without any harmfull side effects".
New research, published in the journal Allergy, shows that ancient Chinese medicine can dramatically reduce symptoms such as a runny nose and itchy eyes. Researchers found that when they used acupuncture needles with a Chinese herbal medicine, the number of patients feeling better was double that in a group not given the treatment.
To see if hayfever sufferers would benefit, researchers at the University of Erlangen in Nuremberg, Germany, and the Charite University Medical Centre in Berlin, recruited 52 hayfever sufferers aged between 20 and 58.
