EoE is a food protein induced disease that involves both IgE and non-IgE mediated processes. It typically presents with symptoms of esophageal dysmotility. It is characterized histologically as>14 eosinophils on biopsy. Current treatment involves food elimination, and topical steroids. There is no alternative treatment for EoE. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system utilizing herbs, acupuncture and acupressure. Laboratory research provides strong evidence that some herbal formulas reduce Th2 cytokines, IgE production and eotaxin.

CONCLUSION: Acupuncture modulated mucosal immune response in the upper airway in adults with persistent allergic rhinitis. This modulation appears to be associated with down-regulation of allergen specific IgE for house dust mite, which this study is the first to report. Improvements in nasal itch, eye itch, and sneezing after acupuncture are suggestive of down-regulation of transient receptor potential vanilloid 1.

Besides, if used in recommended dosage, it does not suppress the cardiopulmonary function as most other sedatives do. Ketamine's bronchodilator effect makes it a good sedative for children with asthma, ...

Objective Allergic rhinitis (AR) is one of the most common diseases affecting adults. It is the most common chronic disease in children in the United States today and the fifth most common chronic disease in the United States overall. AR is estimated to affect nearly 1 in every 6 Americans and generates $2 to $5 billion in direct health expenditures annually. It can impair quality of life and, through loss of work and school attendance, is responsible for as much as $2 to $4 billion in lost productivity annually. Not surprisingly, myriad diagnostic tests and treatments are used in managing this disorder, yet there is consi...
