THE BENEFITS OF ACUPUNCTURE FOR WOMEN

April 11, 2018

Acupuncture does not get talked about nearly enough of the useful health benefits it provides users. This might be due to the fact that a lot of medical professionals are not aware of the scientific research and data that supports the effectiveness of acupuncture. In any case, acupuncture can provide people with relief. In this piece we are going to explore some benefits of acupuncture for women.

Indigestion and Heartburn 

Scientists in Brazil, during a study dealing with pregnant women and heartburn, found that acupuncture decreased the level of intensity from heartburn and that these same women used fewer antacids for indigestion. In their test groups, nearly three-fourths of the women in the acupuncture group saw positive results. On the other hand, less than fifty percent of the women in the control group, who did not receive acupuncture and only got medicine and dietary counselling saw positive results in a reduction of heartburn and indigestion intensity. 

Period Aches and Pains

The benefits of acupuncture in relieving body aches and pains is documented thoroughly in the scientific community. The interesting thing about this is that researchers have found that even simulated acupuncture (this is where no needles get inserted into the body, but rather the same pressure points used in acupuncture are pressed with a toothpick or something similar) improved a patient’s aches and pains

Hormones Migraines 

Regular, unending headaches and migraines are uncomfortable. Research has shown that regular acupuncture therapy sessions can dull these uncomfortable migraines. The data comes from a comprehensive reading of  Thirty-two different studies about headaches and acupuncture benefits in relieving them. Studies show that acupuncture can help to relieve the pain of consistent headaches, as well as help, prevent future headaches caused by bodily tension and the hormones changing.
