Regular acupuncture benefits rheumatoid arthritis patients.

A 2018 study published in Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Journal found that clinical trials indicate that regular acupuncture over at least 3-12 weeks improves condition and quality of life for rheumatoid arthritis patients.

"In our review, we concluded that acupuncture alone or combined with other treatment modalities is beneficial to the clinical conditions of RA without adverse effects reported and can improve function and quality of life and is worth trying. Several important possible mechanisms were summarized including anti-inflammatory effect, antioxidative effect, and regulation of immune system function."

Acupuncture a 'Realistic Option' vs HRT for Hot Flashes

I have had many patients report less hot flashes with regular acupuncture. We also have Chinese herbal formulas that are very effective for controlling menopausal hot flashes and night sweats. Medscape reports:

"Receiving a 15-minute, standardized acupuncture treatment once a week for 5 weeks eased bothersome menopausal symptoms, notably, hot flashes, in a small pragmatic trial.

"Researchers randomly assigned 70 women in Denmark who were experiencing "quite a bit" to "a lot" of menopausal hot flashes either to undergo acupuncture from experienced primary care physicians or not to undergo acupuncture.

"Those who underwent acupuncture reported a significant decrease in hot flashes, excess sweating, mood swings, sleep disturbances, and skin and hair problems. In addition, it was well tolerated, and those who received acupuncture experienced only very rare, minor side effects, compared with those who didn't receive it....[...]

""The present study demonstrates that acupuncture is significantly superior to no treatment...for menopausal symptoms [and] is a realistic option for women who cannot or do not wish to use [hormone replacement therapy (HRT)]," Kamma Sundgaard Lund, MD, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and colleagues conclude."
