Acupuncture for Osteoporosis
Contrary to common misconception, acupuncture is effective in helping patients with Osteoporosis.
Usually in women, this rate of bone loss accelerates significantly after menopause.
How does acupuncture work for Osteoporosis?
Acupuncture balances function of hormone, adrenal and parathyroid glands to slow down the rate of bone loss. Acupuncture improves digestion and absorption of protein and vitamin D, which help the body build bone and absorb calcium to help retard or even halt bone loss.
Course of treatment
There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
