You might feel singled out at work or be unable to participate in normal activities at school or miss important functions. And even though you were supposed to outgrow asthma, you haven’t, and it’s affecting your quality of life. Inhalers provide only temporary relief; meanwhile, long-term use of steroids will disrupt your hormone system, which could lead to premature aging and osteoporosis.
Recently, researchers working with 104 participants found that participants who received treatment of antiasthma medication and acupuncture experienced both decreased asthma symptoms and a significant reduction in the number of asthma attacks over a period of six months.
Additionally, a 2017 study involving over 1400 participants, studied the effects of using an integrative medicine approach to treat allergies. This approach added acupuncture to routine allergy treatment. Researchers found significant improvement in both the physical and mental health of participants, as well as better quality of life.
