Acupuncture Cools Breast Cancer Hot Flashes! 

Stay cool and relaxed with acupuncture treatments. 

A recent published study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology on August 24, 2015 concludes that electro-acupuncture treatments were more effective than Gabapentin, a common drug used to control cancer-related hot flashes. The small study consisting of 120 patients opens the door to a larger study. See http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/850510.

This is great news for all cancer-survivors. If you know of a loved one or acquaintance who is currently going through cancer treatments and complaining of hot flashes, please pass on this new information to them.

To our good health,
