Sharp answers for period pain

Approximately 50 per cent of young women experience menstrual cramps, the cause of which is usually unknown. A common treatment includes curling up with a heat pack, chocolate supply and a painkiller. This is a symptomatic, if enjoyable, approach. A long term and holistic treatment could be acupuncture according to new research. Researchers reviewed all available randomised and controlled studies on acupuncture up until July 2008. That meant 27 studies were examined and almost 3000 women were involved. The data showed that acupuncture was the preferred treatment for period pain when compared to pharmaceuticals and even herbal remedies. It seems that acupuncture stimulates release of endorphins and serotonin in the central nervous system. The researchers did note that some of the studies were flawed but there is enough evidence here to suggest that acupuncture is worth a try.
