5 Cancer Problems that Respond to Acupuncture

5 Cancer Problems that Respond to Acupuncture

There is, “good scientific evidence for this use,” states the website of the Susan G. Komen Foundation referring to acupuncture as a tool in cancer treatment. The Komen Foundation http://www.komen.org/ is a premier breast cancer research and advocacy group so when they say that the acupuncture evidence is strong, I’m especially delighted. The following are 5 health problems they rate as having solid evidence for success with acupuncture.

1. Anxiety and Depression
2. Back and Neck Pain
3. Nausea and Vomiting
4. Osteoarthritis
5. Post-Operative Pain

Here is the link http://ww5.komen.org/BreastCancer/Acupuncture.html
If you scroll down to the Evidence section it "grades" what they consider acupuncture good for.
