Does Acupuncture Alleviate Pain From Endometriosis?
Acupuncture does help to alleviate the painful symptoms caused by endometriosis. Endometriosis develops due to an imbalance in hormone levels in the female reproductive system. Acupuncture relieves pain and helps to balance the body's hormonal production by stimulating blood flow.
Several studies have indicated that acupuncture is a medically proven method of pain relief for people living with endometriosis. Experts agree that this pain relief comes through pressure relief and hormonal balance.
Endometriosis increases the serum levels of CA-125. There was a significant correlation between the endometriosis stage, lesion size, adhesion score, and preoperative CA-125 plasma concentration. Acupuncture therapy has been shown to help decrease the levels of CA-125 in the blood and thus reduce symptoms of endometriosis.
