Acupuncture Reduces Symptoms
Here at The Path of Wellness & Healing, we were thrilled to read the recent news that Henry Ford Hospital announced the results of its study on the effects of acupuncture on women with breast cancer. We weren’t surprised with the results – that acupuncture is not only equally effective as the often-prescribed drug Effexor when it comes to reducing hot flashes and other breast cancer-related symptoms, but the treatment actually has longer-lasting results than the drug.
Acupuncture is also shown to increase sex drive in women, energy, vitality, and overall sense of well-being. Not to mention it doesn’t come with any of the drug’s unpleasant side effects like dry mouth and nausea.
Acupuncture is a cornerstone of the healing methods explored on our DVD. The doctors featured on our DVD, including top oncologists and breast specialists like Dr. Susan Love, Dr. Michael Michael Van Soy-Mosher, Dr. Marisa Weiss, and many others, offer complete explanations of every type of treatment available – including Complementary/Integrative options like Acupuncture and Homeopathy. As Dr. Maoshing Ni explains, acupuncture improves vitality and energy by activating our body’s natural healing mechanisms. Actress Jaclyn Smith, also featured on our DVD, chose acupuncture over painkillers for the aches and pains she was experiencing, and the treatment not only helped heal her physically, but soothed her and restored her sense of balance. So for women with breast cancer and their loved ones, the recent news from Henry Ford Hospital was good news indeed.
