New Rochelle, NY, May 3, 2017—A large randomized controlled, pragmatic trial involving 1,445 patients with allergic asthma found that an integrative medicine approach in which acupuncture is added to routine care demonstrated improvements in both quality of life and physical and mental health for those receiving acupuncture. The successful results, reported after 3 months of treatment and maintained through the 6-month follow-up, are described in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (JACM), a peer-reviewed publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available free on the JACM website until June 3, 2017.

According to a Harvard Health Blog posted January 7/2017

Approximately 30% to 40% of women with breast cancer report persistent hot flashes and night sweats. A new study conducted by researchers from the United States and Canada indicates that electroacupuncture might provide some relief.

The researchers studied 58 breast cancer survivors who reported sleep disruptions from hot flashes. They randomly assigned half the group to receive electro-acupuncture (the application of a pulsating electric current) and half to take a daily 900-milligram dose of gabapentin (Neurontin), an antiseizure medication frequently prescribed for hot flashes that cause sleep disturbances.

For some people, constipation is a constant and puzzling struggle. If a person has no more than two bowel movements per week and there's no underlying condition or medication responsible, the problem is known as chronic severe functional constipation (CSFC). A study published online Sept. 12, 2016, by Annals of Internal Medicine, suggests that electroacupuncture may be a treatment option for people with CSFC. The therapy uses acupuncture needles and tiny amounts of electrical current to stimulate precise points on the body. The study involved about 1,000 people with CSFC. The re-searchers randomly assigned half to electroacupuncture sessions and the other half to fake (sham) acupuncture sessions.
