Has anyone ever heard of an acupuncture treatment for PA?

I was brousing another web site about allergies in general and there was a bit of information about a procedure to treat allergies (food allergies included) through acupuncture. When I asked the nurse at my son's allergist office about this (my son is PA) all the nurse would tell me was that the doctor wouldn't support it. I also e-mailed the Food Allergy Network and all they would say is that they wouldn't support it either. Has anyone else ever heard of this?

Do a search on the boards about NAET. It is a very heated topic but i think you will get your questions answered.

I have heard from a mother that her 17 year old daughter's asthma cleared considerably after several acupuncture sessions. Don't know how it would work with an allergy.

I quickly browsed the site on NAET, didn't have much time to read everything. It just seemed like when I asked my son's allergist and the FAN, that they were tight-lipped and didn't want to talk about it. Thought they should have been nicer about keeping parents of PA kids informed - even if they don't professionally support it. I had just wanted info on it so I could be kept informed on all our options.
