Accupuncture & Imunity
Acupuncture may boost white blood cell counts and bolster the immune system, according to a small study whose findings were presented at the ASCO meeting. The study examined the effects of acupuncture on 11 women with gynecologic cancers. Larger studies will be necessary to confirm the findings. Acupuncture is a popular alternative treatment that involves sticking needles into the skin at specific points on the body.
