Lower stress and cortisol, naturally

 

Is there a natural way to treat chronic stress?

It is a widely held belief that acupuncture is a great way to relieve stress. Several studies have seen groups diagnosed with chronic stress display remarkable improvement in quality of life and lower stress levels due to acupuncture. Despite this evidence it has remained largely unclear why or how acupuncture is able to reduce stress levels.

A recent study however has come closer to pin pointing how acupuncture can specifically target and reduce stress. The researchers found that electro-acupuncture interacted with hormones in the brain to reduce their stress elevating effects. These results are promising as researchers find more and more evidence to show that acupuncture is a scientifically viable way to relieve stress and other ailments.
