This is great information for persistent atrial fibrillation sufferers. The heart rhythm journal paper states “Emerging evidence related to diet, caffeine, yoga, and acupuncture (emphasis mine) represent potentially important steps forward in the incorporation of patient-driven prevention research.” This is a huge statement. The bigger question is will cardiologists actually consider changing their approach to the management of this condition and suggest their patients consider acupuncture as part of their care. Time will tell.
As a practicing acupuncture physician, I am always intrigued with new science on the benefits of acupuncture therapy. Acupuncture is used for so many conditions, and not just pain management. It is helpful for many internal conditions, such as circulation, digestion, fertility and many other things.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a variety of health conditions, you should consider acupuncture as a choice in the management or in the co-management of your condition. Please feel free to contact our acupuncture practice in Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, or Davie Florida for a complimentary consultation. Acupuncture pain management is only one part of what we do.
