Acupuncture Helps Constipation – New Research

New research concludes that acupuncture is an effective treatment therapy for resolving constipation. Researchers compared electro-acupuncture stimulation at key acupuncture points with a sham acupuncture control group. The single-blind, randomized study consisted of women between the ages of 30 and 54 years of age. After eight weeks of treatment, the electro-acupuncture group demonstrated significant improvement and the control group did not show improvement. The researchers also measured a significant enhancement of the parasympathetic nervous system and heart rate variability in the electro-acupuncture group.
