excuse me for sounding like a television ad, but i must say something:
once upon a time, i was a girl who had really bad allergies.....like, benedryl around the clock + zyrtec wouldnt even do the trick for me. i've had them since elementary, and everytime spring/summer roll around i am just a miserable itchy-nose, red-eyed, scratchy-throat person who complains and cries like like a baby. (i couldnt even go outside to play with my boys when i was nannying because just walking onto the grass would start up an itch attack!)
WELL...i finally got fed up of nothing working and was DESPERATE for a cure.
so i went to go try acupuncture.
and wanna know what?
i am allergy free for the first time in 15 years.
15 YEARS PEOPLE!!!!
i would suggest it to anyone who is allergy-ridden and miserable. the needles are tiny and you can't even feel em. i was scared to do it because i pass out at blood tests..needles are NOT my thing, but it truly isnt bad. (and yeah its a little weird to see a ton of needles poking out of your face and body, but you can just close your eyes for that part.)
boo ya chinese medicine....whatever those magic ninja needles did, they cured me!
