North Shore Acupuncture has treated symptoms and the causes of allergies for over 25 years with excellent results. German researchers confirm the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of allergies and sinus disorders. In an eight-week clinical trial, patients receiving acupuncture required less medication and had fewer seasonal allergic symptoms than those in other control groups. Likewise, quality of life scores were significantly better in the acupuncture group. Based on the evidence, the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin researchers conclude that acupuncture treatment was more effective than the symptomatic drug intervention.
Acupuncture provides both long and short term relief as a standalone therapy, in combination with other Chinese medicine treatment modalities, and in conjunction with medications. Other independent sources indicate that acupuncture is useful for the alleviation of allergic rhinitis. The National Institutes of Health states that data from some randomized controlled trials suggest that acupuncture may improve some symptoms of allergic rhinitis, as well as the quality of life.
