Best my allergies have been since childhood

May 1st, 2010 · No Comments ·

I tend to be skeptical about alternative medicine.  However, I have chronic sinus allergies, and had tried literally every allergy prescription and over-the-counter pill.  I even tried a year’s worth of weekly allergy shots.  I only received partial relief; the symptoms still affected my daily life too much.  And many of them brought side effects, like dizziness, tiredness, nosebleeds, and the jitters.

Beth suggested acupuncture for my sinus allergies.  I had nothing left to try, so agreed to give it a shot.  After the first two treatments, I could feel a significant difference.  After two months, my symptoms were dramatically reduced.  And the reduction in symptoms lasted. 

This is the best my allergies have been since childhood, with no side effects to interfere with my life.  The acupuncture procedure is not painful at all – gee whiz, it hurts much more to pluck an eyebrow hair!
