It also seeks to correct the imbalance of hormones. When it comes to hypothyroidism, the acupuncturist will need to concentrate on the kidney area in order to bring about a reduction in the symptoms.

Can you "cure" hypothyroidism with acupuncture?

Perhaps NOT. As I knew,There are no quality research about this in China.

Many patients, chiefly those who originated with a marginal or mild trouble case of hypothyroidism, they were able to ease symptoms and get them back into a normal, Generally, most of acupuncturist have reported 1-2year timelines for those patients they successfully treated. But hypothyroid patients nearly always acquired to take "traditional" drug therapy. The acupuncturist then step by step ablactate patients off the traditional drugs, as thyroid balance was reestablished .It's not a foregone conclusion. it almost always takes quite a long time to see answers, and most patients find it hard,

So, does this mean there's no promise? If you have a mild or marginal hypothyroidism ,you want to investigate going for acupuncture treatment of your condition,send email to me.

Russian research-- treatment resulted in a significant decrease of the number and severity of the initial clinical symptoms; the levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone fell down to the physiological values, characteristics of the quality of life became comparable with those of healthy subjects.
