As a certified provider of acupuncture treatment and oriental medicine, Dr. Marco Dibonaventura has dedicated his life to helping people discover natural ways to maintain their health and wellness.
These days, both doctors and consumers are too quick to reach for pharmaceutical or surgical solutions to health problems that have been successfully treated in natural ways for centuries.
As the cold of winter gives way to the rejuvenation of spring here in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, many community members will begin to suffer from that same annual problem: seasonal allergies. As the trees, flowers, and grasses start to bloom, it puts pollen into the air that overwhelms our sinus system and triggers frustrating, and sometimes downright painful allergic reactions.
Our wellness clinic helps dozens of people deal with their seasonal allergies by concentrating on acupuncture treatment. It may sound too good to be true, but the possibility of treating allergies with acupuncture is supported by modern scientific research.
A 2013 study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine found that acupuncture treatment could be more effective than over-the-counter antihistamines when it comes to reducing symptoms of allergies like itchy eyes and a runny nose.
“After two months, the researchers asked the patients about their symptoms and how much medication they used. The participants who received the real acupuncture treatments with their antihistamines showed a greater improvement in their allergy symptoms and less use of antihistamines compared to the other groups,” reported TIME Magazine.
