Acupuncture: Move Beyond Your Mystery Diagnosis

If you or someone you know have been left with unanswered questions by x-rays or lab results, consider the following…

A study published in the June 2011 issue of the British Journal of General Practice found regular acupuncture to be helpful for people with symptoms that are unexplainable by Western medicine. This research was carried out because medically unexplainable physical symptoms are common and often difficult to treat.

The study focused on 80 adults who visited their general practitioners at least eight times per year, mostly for chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, headache, or mental health concerns. They were directed to see a licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and received an average of nine acupuncture sessions over six months. The results were impressive; most of the participants reported improved health immediately and up to a year after receiving acupuncture.

The recommendations of this research: acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that can be combined with Western Medicine. If you’re still unsure about acupuncture, ask yourself: if not now, when?
