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."

Mel Hopper Koppelman, DAc, MSc, MSc recently concluded "Acupuncture enjoys moderate to strong evidence of effectiveness in the treatment of 46 conditions and is considered safe in the hands of properly trained practitioners. Acupuncture is also considered cost-effective for a number of conditions where evidence is available. Comparatively, for many conditions it enjoys greater evidence than many conventional treatments and is relatively safer. Patients, medical professionals, and healthcare administrators can be confident that the recommendation of acupuncture for many patients is a safe, cost-effective, and evidence-based recommendation."
