"Infertility, acne, excess facial and body hair, weight gain, an increased risk for heart disease and diabetes: they're all common symptoms of PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome. Women who got a daily acupuncture session for six months showed the same improvements in male hormone levels, cholesterol levels, glucose and insulin markers, and weight as women who took prescription metformin pills three times a day, says a study in the latest issue of The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine."
