New Study Suggests How Acupuncture Helps Reverse Fibromyalgia Keywords: Acupuncture, Fibromyalgia, Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Real Acupuncture, Sham Acupuncture, Free Opioid Receptors, Clinical Trial, Controlled Study A recent controlled, clinical study of Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia had a finding that should interest all who suffer from this malady. Fibromyalgia patients, prior to Acupuncture treatment, had fewer opioid receptors than healthy volunteers. After a series of treatments, those receiving "real" Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia had higher levels of free opioid receptors than those receiving "sham" Acupuncture. Researchers compare effects from real Acupuncture to sham Acupuncture to determine if Acupuncture has more than a placebo effect. Thus, the evidence suggests that only real Acupuncture treatment can normalize the values [of free opioid receptors] back to healthy control levels" (Marchant, 2017). This suggests that Acupuncture can help reverse Fibromyalgia. See reference at the bottom of this message to learn more about this study, along with other interesting research about the physiological effects of Real Acupuncture relative to Sham Acupuncture.
