Acupuncture Works for Cancer-Related Fatigue in Patients with Breast Cancer
I read an article today in the Journal of Clinical Oncology about a study testing acupuncture’s effectiveness in treating fatigue for patients with breast cancer. The randomized controlled trial compared acupuncture with “enhanced usual care.”
Results showed that acupuncture helped breast cancer patients plus it decreased their anxiety and depression as well.
The researchers concluded that “acupuncture is an effective intervention for managing the symptom of cancer-related fatigue and improving patients’ quality of life.”
Cancer treatment can be exhausting, even for the most resilient of us. Acupuncture can help lift your energy and your spirit.
