Rhinitis Sinusitis Asthma Treatment
Persistent Allergic Rhinitis
Persistent Allergic Rhinitis is characterized by chronic nasal symptoms: sneezing, nasal itch, nasal obstruction and nasal discharge. Consistent with the findings of various acupuncture studies for allergic rhinitis, and a specific acupuncture safety study, it is found that acupuncture was well tolerated, with only minor and minimal adverse events, none of which were serious enough to result in participant withdrawal from the trial. Allergic rhinitis though difficult treatment can be tacked effectively by Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy of Nashik.

“Acupuncture Effective Rate
This recent clinical study had an effective rate of 96.5 percent with 61 persons obtaining total recovery, 21 with marked improvement, and 3 with no effect. To achieve the standard of total recovery, the resolution of all of the patient’s symptoms required resolution. Rhinoscopy and absence of symptomology was used to confirm the results. A two year follow-up confirmed total recovery. At a rate of one treatment per day, fifteen acupuncture sessions consisted of one course of treatment. The 96.5 percent effective rate was achieved after two courses of treatment (30 acupuncture appointments) unless total recovery was achieved prior to completion of the second course of acupuncture treatment.”
British Acupuncture Council states –
“In general, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system and cause the release of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting biochemical changes influence the body’s homeostatic mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being. Stimulation of certain acupuncture points has been shown to affect areas of the brain that are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress (Hui 2010)”
Asthma is a disorder of two components. One component is inflammation of the airways. This is accompanied by bronchial constriction due to a smoother muscle response that lines the walls of the airways. The acupuncture stimulus produces anti-inflammatory agents naturally that move to decrease the inflammation while at the same time affects the sympathetic nervous system to ease the muscular constriction of the smooth muscle and therefore the constricted airway. If used in initial attacks or mild bouts of asthma, acupuncture is most effective. At least 70% of the patients suffering from asthma reported improvement after undergoing regular acupuncture treatment for a span of 10 weeks in study conducted by the University of Vienna Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care. Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of asthma, exercise induced and cold induced asthma. Long term progress can be made in conjunction with good safe management of medication. The Asthma is one of 40 illness considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) that may benefit from acupuncture. We at Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy are able to relieve patients of asthma.
“Current published evidence reveals no reason to withhold acupuncture as a safe and potentially effective treatment in patients with bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive lung disease. Further, more appropriately designed studies are urgently required. This would be facilitated in the United States by licensing the acupuncture needle as a therapeutic agent and might lead to important new insights and therapeutic opportunities.”
