There's some scientific evidence that acupuncture helps with certain symptoms of anxiety. However, researchers are still trying to determine the effect of acupuncture on specific types of anxiety, such as panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Forbye, how do I find a good acupuncturist?
Start by asking your primary care doctor for a referral list of acupuncturists. You can also ask family, friends and other healthcare providers for recommendations. Take the time to research the acupuncturists' credentials and experience on Healthgrades.com.
Still further, does Chinese medicine actually work? Critics argue that there is no physiological evidence that qi or meridians exist, and scant evidence that TCM works. There have been just a handful of cases in which Chinese herbal treatments have proved effective in randomized controlled clinical trials. One notable product that has emerged from TCM is artemisinin.
Ever, do you get immediate relief from acupuncture?
You may not experience immediate pain relief from your first acupuncture treatment (although many patients do).
How much do Chinese herbs cost?
A month's supply of herbs cost between $30 and $50. The cost of TCM herbal medicines ranges from just pennies to dollars per dose.
