Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you or someone you love is suffering from hot flashes, you know how miserable and uncomfortable they can be.
Things like cranking your AC during the dead of winter or waking up in a pool of sweat (yours or your partners) can be daily occurrences.
And the worst part about hot flashes — mainstream medicine often treats them with risky synthetic hormones and dangerous antidepressants.
Fortunately, a new study shows that an ancient Chinese treatment may be the secret to eliminating your sweaty sufferings.
In fact, it may nearly eliminate your hot flashes for good in just eight weeks.
This miracle treatment is acupuncture.
It’s been used in traditional Asian healing for centuries, and it’s proving to be one of the quickest, most effective and least risky treatments for preventing hot flashes.
In this most recent study, researchers tracked the responses of 209 women aged 40–65 who were suffering from at least four hot flashes or night sweats daily.
After receiving acupuncture, half of the women reported experiencing major reductions in their frequency of hot flashes.
Even more incredible…
Acupuncture whittled down hot flash frequency by 87 percent in a small group of these subjects.
This means, for some folks, acupuncture may almost eliminate their hot flashes!
And the good news just keeps coming — these outstanding results happened in only eight weeks. But some women saw relief in just three–four weeks of treatment.
If this sounds great, but you’re scared of needle sticks… don’t be.
Most acupuncture sessions are painless, and can even be relaxing. In fact, many folks report a sense of calm and well-being after treatments and have no dangerous side effects.
Plus, they spare you the dangers of Western medicine’s risky chemical concoctions.
To get started, call your insurance provider. Most plans cover or partially cover acupuncture treatments and can connect you with a practitioner. Or simply ask your doc for a referral.
