Could acupuncture relieve allergy sypmtoms?
A new study suggests acupuncture may relieve allergy symptoms.
Researchers studied more than 400 people with pollen allergies. In the study, subjects were placed into one of three groups in which they took antihistamines, antihistamines with acupuncture or antihistamines with fake acupuncture.
After two months, the study participants who received real acupuncture showed greater improvement in allergy symptoms and less use of antihistamines, compared to the other groups.
