5 Ways Acupuncture Can Fix Your Health Problems
For weeks, Nathan Suver had a serious pain in the neck. It was a recurring problem, related to a back injury, and nothing made it go away. Until, that is, his doctor jabbed him with pins. “He did it as part of a routine visit,” recalls Suver, a 35-year-old software developer from Southington, Connecticut. “He has acupuncture training. He just said, ‘This will help with the pain,’ and stuck 10 little needles in me. He first put one in my neck, and then one in my wrist. It felt like lightning shooting through my body from my neck to my wrist. But it was actually only slightly uncomfortable.”
The treatment was worth that slight discomfort, because Suver’s pain went away. A week later, he bragged about the success on Facebook. “What’s even more amazing is that while I was convinced it wouldn’t work, it did anyway,” he wrote. “So much for the placebo effect.” Read the full artcile here.
Believe it or not, acupuncture can help with mental desires and disorders. There are a lot of researches and case studies that proved the fact that this method is legit for treating mental problems of patients. Here is another post from Men’s Health.
Can Acupuncture Treat Depression?
Getting poked could perk you up. Acupuncture may be a viable treatment for depression, suggests a new British study.
Researchers found depression patients who received acupuncture saw similar mental health improvements as those who had counseling—and felt better after 3 months than patients who stuck to their regular antidepressant regimen. (Though you should talk to your doc before making any changes to your treatment.)
So what’s going on? The researchers aren’t quite sure, but in the past, acupuncture has been shown to decrease pain and boost the production of endorphins, or chemical compounds that make us feel good, says Florida-based patient educator Steven Masley, M.D. And it’s possible there’s a placebo effect, but this study didn’t find a link between patients’ expectations and added benefits to treatment.
