help for hot flashes! help for hot flashes! We have some good news for those women who suffer from night sweats and hot flashes  due to hormonal fluctuations. Did you know that  acupuncture focused on the ear can  help control hot flashes and night sweats? It seems to especially help women receiving breast cancer treatment. Researchers studied the effectiveness of the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) 5-point ear acupuncture point prescription on women 35 years or older receiving tamoxifen therapy. The study involved 50 women who  received the NADA therapy over a period of 8 weeks.  The primary advantage of the ear acupuncture therapy was that treatment was easily administered in small groups of five or less women at the same time. The results were clinically significant. The mean frequency of hot flashes and night sweats was reduced by almost 40 percent.
So now ladies in addition to using your Cool-jams, you might find additional relief with acupuncture. Definitely worth a try.
