My ex had allergies for his whole entire life...to cats, dogs, pollen, dust...you name it. He was always sneezing and his nose was always red. About 6 years ago he went to the acupuncture clinic. They did acupuncture 6 times, and he had to drink these nasty herbs for a month. The herbs were a pain in the ass...they had to be cooked in a clay pot every night for 30 days. He has never had allergies since, nor has he been back to the acupuncturist since.
