Ancient “Needle Trick” SLASHES Heart Risk
Here’s the unfair truth of life with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
In addition to battling intense chronic pain, your very HEART is on the line!
As if stiffness and swelling aren’t enough to worry about, recent studies have shown that RA can up your risk of DEADLY coronary heart disease…
That’s the one where plaque builds up and narrows your arteries, CUTTING OFFyour heart’s supply of oxygen and blood…
But don’t worry.
Researchers have just identified a unique “needle trick,” a two-fold physical therapy straight out of traditional Chinese medicine, that not only relieves your WORST pain from RA…
But also DRAMATICALLY lowers your heart risk.
(Local healers have been using it for centuries… and now, it’s YOUR turn.)
I’m talking about acupuncture.
As you may know, acupuncture is the ancient practice of inserting super-thin needles into specific points on the body to banish disease, manage blood pressure, and more.
Modern research has shown that it’s a reliable method of relieving pain from RA – a condition where immune cells go haywire and attack healthy joint tissue, causing stiffness and swelling – but now, scientists say it may do so much MORE.
In the study, a large-scale project published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers from Taiwan pored over the medical records of close to 30,000 patients with RA. Of those, they identified 10,199 patients who used acupuncture and 19,542 who did not…
And their review showed something INCREDIBLE.
Compared to non-users, members of the acupuncture cohort were a whopping 40 PERCENT less likely to develop coronary heart disease!
That’s the kind of number that just blows me away…
Almost HALF of their risk – GONE.
Plus, researchers observed that the reduction appeared no matter what kind of practice the subjects used – traditional acupuncture, electroacupuncture (which involves a tiny electric current on the needles), or a combination of the two.
Now, researchers didn’t explore WHY acupuncture showed such an amazing effect on heart risk, but past research indicates that anti-inflammatory treatments – typically nasty mainstream drugs and steroids – reduce the odds of developing CHD.
And given that acupuncture is a known means of relieving inflammation throughout the body, its heart-healthy benefits make perfect sense.
If you’re interested in trying acupuncture, do a little extra research and speak with your doc. While he may not offer it, more and more physicians have recently accepted the practice and implemented it in their clinics.
