Acupuncture can be of help with hayfever
Hayfever, also known as allergic rhinitis is usually an allergy to pollen released by grasses, flowers and trees in spring and summer. The pollen causes the bodies cells to release histamine and other chemicals, resulting in a runny, itchy nose, blocked sinuses, sneezing, redness, prickling and watering of eyes, and/or a sore throat and sometimes asthma. It can also be caused by allergy to things such as house dust, mites, the fur of feathers of animals or birds, or by moulds, plants or chemicals.
The causative allergen can be accurately diagnosed using electro acupuncture diagnosis and desensitisation treatment with homeopathic medicines is usually very effective.
Acupuncture has proven effective also. A study published in 1991 stated a total of 98 percent. This was against 76 percent effectiveness in the control group that received Teldrin, an antihistamine and Ephedrine nasal drops.

Allergies, Sinus, hayfever, breathing & Skin problems
A number of seemingly unrelated ailments such as Asthma, Hay Fever, and Eczema, Sinusitis and Skin diseases may be caused by allergies. They erupt when your body reacts to something it is abnormally sensitive to. During an allergic response, your body defends itself with ‘ antibodies ‘ and releases histamines and other chemicals
which cause the allergic symptoms. Western Medical Doctors often use ‘Antihistamines’ (which have many adverse side effects) to control these symptoms but they do not have any effect on the cause of these symptoms
In contrast the use of Functional and Chinese Medicine to treat this group of diseases treats both the symptoms and the causes.
