We both value the research of modern science and the many developments that have been discovered.

We also value the depth of wisdom and knowledge of traditional and classical five element acupuncture, which integrates the many aspects of body and mind.

We acknowledge the information gained from research, and we endevaour to use it where appropriate when meeting the needs of an individual who is suffering in health.

Allergic Rhinitis -

(Hayfever)

(2018) Acupuncture-moxibustion therapy of "banking up original qi and consolidating the foundation" for prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis: A randomized controlled trial.

'In acupuncture group, warming-needle moxibustion was carried out at Zúsānlĭ (ST 36), and cone moxibustion on Fùzĭ (附Radix Aconiti Lateralis Praeparata) cake was conducted at Guānyuán (CV 4), Qìhăi (CV 6) and Dàzhuī (GV 14). The treatment was conducted in May or June (2 months before the onset of rhinitis in this area). The treatment was carried out for once every other day and three times per week. Treatment for 24 times was considered as 1 course of treatment. No intervention treatment was conducted in control group. The score of rhinitis symptom, the visual analogue scale (VAS) score changes of total nasal symptom score (TNSS) and total non nasal symptom score (TNNSS).

Conclusion. Acupuncture-moxibustion therapy of "banking up original qi and consolidating the foundation" was effective on prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis.'

(2018) Treatment of persistent allergic rhinitis via acupuncture at the sphenopalatine acupoint: a randomized controlled trial.

'Conclusions: This pilot study revealed a profound effect of acupuncture at the sphenopalatine acupoint (SPA) (deeper than Stomach 7) on prevention of persistent allergic rhinitis (PAR) development. The total nasal symptom score (TNSS) in the treatment group (needle depth 50 mm), was significantly lower than in the control group (needle depth of only 20 mm). Our result demonstrates that performing acupuncture directly at the SPA to stimulate the SPG is an effective method to treat PAR.'

(2017) Clinical Trials for Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis with Heat Sensitive Moxibustion (HSM) and Its Regularity of Heat-sensitization Acupoint Distribution

'Abstract: HSM has a positive effect on improvement of AR, when applied, acupoints LI 20, EX-HN 3, EX-HN 8, Shangyintang, BL 13, CV 8, GV 23, GB 20, Die'e and GV 14 are highly recommended.'

2013 Acupuncture in Patients With Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis. A Randomized Trial

'Conclusion: Acupuncture led to statistically significant improvements in disease-specific quality of life and antihistamine use measures after 8 weeks of treatment compared with sham acupuncture and with rescue medicine alone, but the improvements may not be clinically significant.'

2013 A multicenter, randomized, controlled trial testing the effects of acupuncture on allergic rhinitis

'Conclusion: Active acupuncture showed a significantly greater effect on symptoms of allergic rhinitis than either sham acupuncture or no active treatment. The symptoms of allergic rhinitis decreased significantly after treatment in the both acupuncture and sham acupuncture groups. Acupuncture appears to be an effective and safe treatment for allergic rhinitis.'
