Updated: Feb 5

Data from a recent study reports that acupuncture has a therapeutic role in managing hot flashes experienced by breast cancer patients.

Breast cancer patients often experience hot flashes and other vasomotor symptoms that negatively impact their quality of life.


🤔 In the literature, the benefit of acupuncture in reducing hot flashes has been variably reported and reasoned for having some degree of the placebo effect.


⭐️” Our data shows that acupuncture has a therapeutic role in managing hot flashes without a confounding placebo effect.”⭐️


✅ This is an excellent alternative for treating breast cancer patients who are wary of taking medical management for reducing symptoms of hot flashes.
