Research suggested that acupuncture is effective to reduce symptoms of hay fever

Spring is a favourite season for most of people, but for hay fever sufferers spring might not be as enjoyable. Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis is an allergic condition with a group pf symptoms affecting nose. The common symptoms include sneezing, runny or blocked nose, loss of smell, itchy nose eyes watery eyes, headaches feeling tired etc. Acupuncture is very effective to reduce hay fever symptoms. About 18% of patients try to alleviate their symptoms using acupuncture. Recently a research from Germany studied impact of acupuncture on antihistamine use in patients suffering from hay fever. The data from 414 patients were analysed. The result has shown that the acupuncture group used antihistamines significantly less often compared with the other groups. Around 38% patients of the acupuncture group did not use any antihistamine in contrast to only 16% in the medication group. The pre-post comparison suggested that the acupuncture patients did not need to increase the days of antihistamine use to alleviate their symptoms, unlike the other groups. The conclusion is that acupuncture significantly reduce the number of days of antihistamine use while improving hay fever symptoms; it can be considered a valuable, additional treatment option for patients with hay fever.
