Acupuncture May Ease Hot Flashes

A number of articles came out last year that said studies indicated that acupuncture did not help with hot flashes, but from WebMD.com comes an article that says in a recent (small) study (53 women), acupuncture did help with some menopausal symptoms.

I'm all for acupuncture and other integrative/alternative medicine protocols-----but from personal experience, hormonal balance (bioidentically, of course) is the best way to get relief from hot flashes. Hormones affect every system in the body, so the health benefits are numerous.....great example is right now here in NC, a lot of people are suffering with allergy symptoms (a little earlier than usual because we have had a warm stretch of weather)----I haven't been bothered by allergies at all, and I had severe allergy symptoms before I went on bioidenticals.
