Suffer from hay fever? Acupuncture can help
Acupuncture is effective to treat hay fever. There is a paper just published titled Impact of acupuncture on antihistamine use in patients suffering seasonal allergic rhinitis: secondary analysis of results from a randomised controlled trial. In this research patients were allocated into three study groups: acupuncture plus medication, sham acupuncture plus medication, and medication alone. The data from 414 patients were analysed. The acupuncture group used antihistamines significantly less often compared with the other groups. The pre-post comparison suggested that the acupuncture patients did not need to increase the days of antihistamine use to alleviate their symptoms. Acupuncture appeared to significantly reduce the number of days of antihistamine use for the patients with hay fever.
