The overuse of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) to relieve migraines and headaches can cause side effects such as nausea, internal bleeding, stomach ulcers and heart irregularities.
Scientific research reveals acupuncture — an ancient Chinese healing process of inserting small needles along pressure points of the body — can help alleviate migraines, tension headaches and other chronic headaches. Of the 4,000 test participants, 62 percent experienced relief of symptoms.
But that’s not all. Acupuncture has also been shown to help:
- Relieve the symptoms of menopause such as cramps, hot flashes and night sweats.
- Alleviate chronic joint pain in the hands and feet.
- Reduce inflammation and pain after neck, back or shoulder surgery.
- Relieve the symptoms of stress, anger and depression.
Give this ancient remedy a chance and your worst aches, pains and migraines may be a thing of the past.
