Acupuncture Relieves Fatigue in Cancer Patients
Fatigue may occur both during chemotherapy treatment and may also persist for months after treatment has been completed.
One of the most common reasons for this fatigue is anemia, the loss of blood cells destroyed by chemotherapy drugs. Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the production of new blood cells, speeding up the recovery from chemotherapy induced anemia.
For cancer patients who were not anemic, a large study involving over 13,000 patients experiencing chemotherapy related fatigue showed a 31.3% improvement after receiving acupuncture treatment.
