In Ireland we suffer a lot from upper respiratory problems like hay fever, rhinitis, & sinusitis. This is possibly due to a few factors like our damp/cold and wet climate and what the chinese would call our damp diet.
Acupuncture and lifestyle advice about diet and other lifestyle factors can make a huge difference to these conditions and often allow people to move on and manage them more effectively. Research into acupunctures role is coming on stream quickly and strongly supporting it's use.
My experience with acupuncture (& sometimes herbs) to date, has convinced me that it definitely can have a beneficial role to play in helping with these type of problems.Back to conditions
“For many years I have suffered from sinusitis. I went to Mark Goulding in Bray who discussed the importance of diet in my condition. After 2 treatments the pain had subsided significantly and after 3 it had gone altogether. I had a total of 5 treatments and I have not had another sinus attack in the last 4 months. I am delighted with the result. I would certainly recommend acupuncture to anyone who suffers from sinus or indeed other problems.”
