Acupuncture Health Benefits – for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome PCOS

Women with (polycystic ovary syndromePCOS) can improve hormone levels and menstrual bleeding pattern with the help of Acupuncture and physical exercise.

PCOS is a common disorder that affects up to 10% of all women of child-bearing age. Women with this health effect frequently have irregular ovulation and menstruation, with many small immature egg follicles in the ovaries.

This causes the ovaries to produce more testosterone which, in turn, leads to troublesome hair growth and acne. Obesity, insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease are also widespread among these patients.

Women with PCOS have a highly active sympathetic nervous system, the part that isn't controlled by our will, and that both acupuncture and regular exercise reduced levels of activity in this system compared with the control group, which could be an explanation for the results.
