Acupuncture for hayfever
Acupuncture and herbs alleviate hay fever (allergic rhinitis). Symptoms include postnasal drip, runny nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, and ear or throat irritation. Lishui Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine researchers conducted a randomized controlled clinical trial. Their findings document that a treatment regimen of acupuncture combined with herbal medicine results in a 91.1% total effective rate for the alleviation of allergic rhinitis.

Using only herbal medicine achieved a 71.1% total effective rate. Acupuncture, as a standalone therapy, achieved a 66.7% total effective rate. Based on the data, the researchers conclude that acupuncture plus herbal medicine is a superior treatment protocol to using either approach as a standalone therapy. The researchers document the regimen of acupuncture points and herbal medicines used to achieve the significant positive patient outcomes.
