Acupuncture Reduces Cancer Pain and Lessens Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathy | Research


Acupuncture Reduces Cancer pain and lessens chemotherapy

Acupuncture Reduces Cancer pain and lessens chemotherapy-induced neuropathy :: Research

3 Recent studies of cancer patients showed acupuncture to be effective in various ways. The first study showed that Acupuncture reduces cancer pain and painkiller use (1). A second study showed that Acupuncture lessens chemotherapy-induced neuropathy (2), and a third study showed that Acupuncture reduces radiation-induced dry mouth. (3)

Although these studies were specific to cancer patients and side-effects of cancer treatments, we’d like to elaborate on these findings. Acupuncture is helpful for all types of pain, peripheral neuropathy and dry mouth. We have first-hand experience treating these conditions in our own patients, and it would be beneficial for you and others to know about this as well.

When it comes to pain, acupuncture is effective for all types: musculoskeletal pain, arthritic pain, headaches and migraines, menstrual pain, abdominal pain, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and more. Many of our patients try acupuncture with the goal of pain relief and many are able to reduce or eliminate the need for painkillers/over the counter pain relief medicine. Acupuncture is always worth a try for pain.

In terms of peripheral neuropathy (pain/tingling/numbness in hands/fingers and feet/toes), we have patients who have experienced a substantial reduction in severity of neuropathy related to chemotherapy and diabetes, as well as neuropathy without any specific underlying condition. Our patients are pleased when they have less discomfort and greater function (i.e. walking more easily, using their fingers/hands with fine motor skills more easily/comfortably). Although acupuncture is helpful for all types of neuropathy, we do want to point out that when there is an underlying condition such as diabetes, it is extremely important to effectively address that condition (i.e. working with a physician/dietician to ensure blood sugar levels are healthy/stable) in addition to the use of acupuncture for the neuropathy.

Finally, acupuncture is helpful for dry mouth and also for other symptoms of dryness such as dry eyes. Certain points are useful for stimulating the salivary glands and tear ducts, and for overall dryness in the body. We have seen this in patients with conditions such as blepharitis, Sjogren’s syndrome and dry mouth related to the use of medications.

We are pleased to see many cancer centers offering acupuncture for their patients to help manage their symptoms, and it is also fantastic that research is being done in these settings. Acupuncture Treatment is gaining in popularity due to its efficacy in a wide variety of health conditions.

Best Fertility Acupuncture Treatment in Chennai – Review

As a person known basics of Acupuncture and it’s benefits, I approached Dr.Parimala Selvi. I have gone through her website completely and came to know along with traditional acupuncture she also practicing few additional techniques learnt from world level masters. After gone through her website I went there with whole hearted.

And got impressed by her scientific and systematic approach which many of the acupuncturist doesn’t follow.

We had infertility issue but we both sure about natural way of treatment and approached madam. I’m surprised that with in a one and half of month of treatment I got positive result. And I’m 2.5 months pregnant now.

Me and my family whole heartedly thanking her for the treatment. And I’m very much appreciating her systematic approach💐.

Acupuncture Is An Effective Treatment For Infertility and IVF IUI Support


Fertility Acupuncture

With the lifestyle we follow these days and the amount of work we do without even considering taking a break, we are more exposed to conditions like infertility than we were at any other point in our history. Infertility is amongst the most common conditions that people seek medical treatment for. It is also one of the biggest reasons why people turn to an acupuncturist.

Whether you have just started experiencing fertility problem or it is something that has been troubling you for a long time, you have to make sure that you are making the right choices when finding a treatment for your condition. As research suggests, acupuncture can be an effective way to help people get rid of their Infertility and other chronic health conditions.

German Researchers said Acupuncture treatment have increased success rates by almost 50% – 70% in women having In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). most of the people are asked to visit an acupuncturist by their doctors. This unequivocally shows the effectiveness of the therapy in treating certain conditions. You could go the other way round too. If your doctor is not recommending you any alternative treatment even after the failure or ineffectiveness of the current treatment, it is your responsibility to ask them upfront whether or not acupuncture is the right treatment for you.

If you have any knowledge of acupuncture, you would know that it began over 3000 years ago in China. The therapy involves the insertion of hair-width needles at specific points in the body. These points are connected to each other by meridians or pathways that facilitate the flow of Qi — a form of positive energy according to Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture works to stimulate these points, thus improving the flow of energy inside the body and correcting any form of imbalance of Qi. This consequently helps and improving your fertile ability.

When you are seeking acupuncture for Fertility in Chennai, you should get it done by a trained, and experienced acupuncturist. There are no serious side effects and the therapy is generally safer. An experienced Fertility and IVF Support Acupuncturist in Chennai will make sure that the therapy is done in the safest way possible.

If other treatments haven’t worked the way they should have and you are considering going to an acupuncturist, then it is advisable that you consult your doctor first. You should also tell your doctor as well as the acupuncturist about the medications you are currently taking to help them conduct an in-depth case study of your condition.

Five Ways Acupuncture Can Help in Cancer Care


Acupuncture, a branch of traditional medicine that originated in China over 4,000 years ago, can be very helpful in providing support to patients at all stages of their cancer journey. -University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority

Five Ways Acupuncture Can Help in Cancer Care

At the UW Carbone Cancer Center, acupuncturists work in collaboration with patients and their physicians to offer complementary treatments to support oncology care.

Reduced nausea, vomiting and fatigue associated with chemotherapy

According to the National Cancer Institute, there is strong evidence that acupuncture can relieve nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy.

Pain relief from neuropathy, incisions, tumors or chronic issues

Studies looking at pain control using acupuncture suggest that it may help reduce the pain associated with cancer as well as from surgery. It may help reduce the amount of pain medications needed, and consequently some of the side effects of those pain medicines. Acupuncture can improve circulation in the body leading to regeneration of damaged nerves (neuropathy) and improve healing of scar tissue.

Improved digestion

Radiation treatments may lead to pain and swelling in the mouth and throat making it difficult to swallow. Some patients lose their sense of taste as well. Acupuncture has been shown to decrease these side effects allowing the patient to be able to swallow, eat and drink normally. Acupuncture can also help restore appetite and regulate patterns of elimination.

Assist in stress management

Cancer patients who use this treatment claim that they feel calmer, and that they feel happier. Additionally, many of them report less worry and anxiety. They report feeling more mentally alert and more emotionally stable. There are specific acupuncture points that will help the nervous system relax when there is a constant feeling of anxiety or adrenaline, thus treatments can help improve sleep as well.

Ongoing physical, mental and emotional support

Regular acupuncture can identify imbalances and guide patients to move towards more optimal health. Acupuncture stimulates the natural healing process of the body to aid in restoring health and balance. Research shows that acupuncture is safe, effective and gentle, without unwanted side effects.

About Acupuncture

Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, about the thickness of two human hairs. The needles are sterile, individually packaged and disposable. Many patients say that they experience a deep state of relaxation and renewal during and after an acupuncture treatment.

Currently, the National Institutes of Health is sponsoring 21 clinical trials evaluating the effectiveness of acupuncture in cancer care.
