Amazing how the evidence keeps piling up.  More and more proof of the effectiveness of acupuncture shows up regularly in the news.  This is an amazing study.  The fact that it was as large as it is, is also impressive. Of course, the fact that it was performed by RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia and not by anyone in the US, doesn’t surprise me.  What surprised me the most was that acupuncture alone outperformed the pharmaceutical treatments as well as the combined acupuncture and pharmaceutical treatments. Check this one out.  It is impressive!
