Acupuncture often provides lasting relief from the pain of chronic headaches, such as migraines. This study was written about on WebMD and is from 2004. I hadn’t read it before and it is too important to pass up.
“Researchers found that compared with standard medical care, acupuncture offers substantial benefits in preventing headaches and improving the quality of life for people who suffer from frequent headaches, especially migraines.”
The British Medical Journal published a study of 401 adults who suffered from chronic migraines. The results continued to be impressive 1 year later for the group that was treated with acupuncture , including:
·They had 22 fewer days with headaches
·They used 15% less medication
·They made 25% fewer visits to their doctor
·They took 15% fewer days off sick from work than the control group
It makes me wonder: Who wouldn’t try acupuncture for this terrible problem?
