October — Breast Cancer Awareness Month

While early detection and treatments for breast cancer have improved over the last decade, symptoms remain. Research shows that acupuncture can provide relief from cancer treatment symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, night sweats and hot flashes, loss of appetite, pain management, and stress in anxiety and depression. Acupuncture does this by boosting the immune system and increasing white blood cell count, positively affecting body temperature and blood pressure to release endorphins – the body’s natural pain killers. Many health care professionals such as Dr. Oz endorse the use of acupuncture for helping to alleviate the symptoms that arise from chemotherapy and radiation and speed healing time and recovery from surgery.
