A New Study Finds Acupuncture May Curb Severity of Hot Flashes. ABC World News and Diane Sawyer reported findings from a new study indicating relief of hot flash symptoms with biweekly acupuncture sessions.

Hot Flash Study: Acupuncture Treatment

For anyone who has experienced hot flashes, you know the intensity and frustration of your inner thermostat fluctuating quickly and without warning throughout the day and night.

Many people feel as though it is something you need to live with, in hopes that symptoms will pass. But for some, hot flashes can continue weeks, months and for some even years.

This new study looked at the efficacy of acupuncture for hot flash relief and found it be highly effective. Patients find relief within a few sessions, helping to get their inner thermostat to come back to a relative normal set point and to balance mood. Adding botanical support augments these results, getting you back to feeling yourself as quickly as possible.

There are options and acupuncture is definitely one to consider if you are experiencing the uncomfortableness of hot flashes.
