Acupuncture is one of the best treatments that I have seen for allergic rhinitis in my experience. In many cases the relief is almost immediate. According to the article:
“Acupuncture alleviates nasal and eye itching, sneezing, and runny nose for patients with allergic rhinitis. Researchers confirm that acupuncture successfully down regulates IgE (immunoglobulin E), an antibody active in hypersensitivity reactions, while simultaneously reducing symptoms of allergic rhinitis. In a highly controlled investigation published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, university researchers present the first study to prove that acupuncture down regulates allergen specific IgE for dust mites."
