“Really” (March 12) concludes that the effects of acupuncture on hay fever may be short-lived. My experience is different.
In 1977, after lifelong allergies to grass, pets and house dust, I did a series of acupuncture sessions over 10 weeks. The relief was immediate and has lasted. Whether coincidence, placebo or causal, I know that being able to walk in the library stacks again without falling asleep was most welcome for this college professor.
