Acupuncture Effectively Treats Allergies and Sinusitis
According to the World Health Organization, in controlled studies acupuncture has proven to effectively treat allergic rhinitis and hay-fever. Acupuncture reduces inflammation and swelling, balances the immune system, and normalizes histamine reactions. Acupuncture also triggers the immune system to fight off unwanted bacterial, fungal and viral infections that can exacerbate allergies and sinusitis.
