A new clinical study examined acupuncture for treatment of chronic sinusitis. A test group of 85 patients with sinusitis participated. Chronic rhinitis [sinusitis] is due to the Chinese medicine concept of wind-cold or wind-heat obstructing lung qi. Wind is similar to the concept of virus or bacteria in western medical terminology. Lung qi is a concept of lung function. In Chinese medicine, the lung system includes the nose. It is easily blocked by ‘wind’ or viral/bacterial invasion. Acupuncture releases pathogens trapped in the body by stimulating acupuncture points associated with the lung and nose.
