    I began acupuncture treatments last spring when my allergies were so bad that any otc drug I took my body eventually became immune to it..
    Acupuncture is safe, extremely effective (in my case), affordable (check for community acupuncture clinics, you pay on a sliding scale).
    I skipped 2 weeks of treatments and was so overwhelmed with allergies (seasonal) that I had to use sick leave and totally felt horrible for at least a week... now I go 2x per week and pay just $15 per treatment. Again, ck out the Community Acupuncture Clinics... hopefully there is one near you...
