Most people believe that acupuncture is just for pain control. In fact it is an active medical modality which I use to treat almost all medical problems. Now a new study shows that acupuncture can help people with heart disease.
The recent study by Kristin AV and others, has recently been published in the medical journal Heart.
In this specific study they looked at congestive heart failure. This is a condition where the heart, due to illness is unable to pump sufficient blood to the rest of the body. It can vary from very mild, to the extreme that a person is unable to walk without oxygen. 4.8 million Americans have this condition. This includes 10% of people over the age of 70.
In this study the authors took 17 patients who were stable with congestive heart failure. All of them were already receiving an optimized medication program for their heart failure when they entered the study.
