Hi AaronDawg, I'm actually from the UC forum, but Sherry asked me to share my experience with acupuncture and allergies. Seems that I had constant sinusitis, and was on the stongest drugs possible. Everyone thought either I smoked or had a cold because I was constantly stuffed up or coughing. I was on the strongest prescript
ion meds the doc could give me, and I was miserable. One of my coworkers told me about
her great acupuncurist, and because I was feeling so poorly and I'd do anything to feel better...I made an appt in the middle of the day, and left work. Everyone was curious to see if it really worked! It was painless, and on the way back to work, I could actually feel my sinuses starting to clear. Thinking it couldn't actually be working that well, I got back to work, and my coworkers couldnt believe it....my voice had actually changed, I didn't sound all stuffed up. It did take another two times of seeing him because my condition was so severe, but now I go just once a year when I feel it coming on (around November/December) and I'm good for the rest of the year. Seriously! The allergies used to be a year round thing; now I even make it through spring. Sorry this is so long, I just wanted you to hear a positive story!
