I am trying acupuncture tomorrow.
I’m trying acupuncture tomorrow. It is covered by my insurance and it has been associated with reduction in hives in medical journals. I have never been before and I’m curious about the process. Any improvement would be a bonus. Does anyone else do this?
UPDATE: Had my first visit this afternoon. It was very interesting and unfortunately, not covered by insurance as I thought – but it is actually quite reasonable, so I’ll try it for a while. The whole first visit was about 3 hours total, after taking a comprehensive review of my health and symptoms (over an hour), he laid out a course of treatment that focused on immune, energy, and pain points. I had needles in my feet, ankles, shins, knees, chest, scalp, forehead, arms, and elbows. Oddly, I had zero hives or itch the entire appt (which is very unusual) before I even saw him…and they are back this evening, so I don’t know what that was about. I felt a bit euphoric after the session, but that quickly turned into exhaustion and a bit of nausea in the evening. It will be a couple of weeks before I’m back in town and can go to a second session, but all in all, it was interesting and worth a try. I’ll report back if I have a miraculous remission. 🙂

I go for acupuncture every week, initially for relief of hives, but it didn’t help. It DOES help me for lots of other stuff though so I keep going.
Interested! I’ve considered it on and off again. If you would post under this comment about your experience and keep updated on hives, I would appreciate it!!
I will definitely follow up. I don’t know if there will be relief after one session, but I’ll give everyone a run down.
Alissa Trollinger awesome! Good luck and thanks!! 🤗
Please keep us updated on your progress.
Absolutely. It’s a 1 1/2 hour appt and I had to list all my medications. Bleh. That was sobering.
Not really related but we have a dog who was paralyzed in her back feet. We found a vet who is a Chiropractor and practices acupuncture. After 3 sessions and a few weeks, she was walking like nothing was ever wrong. I don’t understand how it works but it worked for her.
Has it helped?
Alissa Trollinger Yes And He Also Teach me The Point to press To stimulate
That is encouraging. Thank you!
Alissa Trollinger you’re welcome😊Hope It goes Well

I did it and it helped me. Be prepared for multiple visits weekly tapering off as you improve. I found it to be very relaxing.
Please keep us updated. Thank you!
Ive recently started and it has seemed to reduce the frequency 👍🏻
It helps with my neck pain I think it seems to reduce the severity but I’m not sure if it’s coincidence or not as I was prescribed something for h. Pylori too
Acupuncture didn’t help me.
Didn’t help me.

I have heard that it is not effective for CIU. I did use it to quit smoking 30 years ago.
