Abstract

The aim of the present study was to verify the effectiveness of the Acupuncture, a low-cost and lacking in hyatrogenicity therapy, in the treatment of the allergic asthma. A sample of 60 patients have been selected, suffering from seasonal allergic asthma, showing little or no response to the common therapies. Everybody were treated with a cycle of weekly treatments of Acupuncture, lasting 30 minutes each, until the resolution of the symptoms. All the patients reached the resolution of the symptoms after 5 to 15 sessions; within the third/fourth session all of them showed a significant reduction in the intake of the pharmacologic therapy. Moreover, the 75% of the patients who presented high levels of IgE, after the first cycle returned in the normality range.
