Treating Anxiety and Depression in Women

In June of 2013, the National Institute of Health published a review of the efficacy of acupuncture for treating anxiety and depression in women. The results were sufficient to recommend its use as a viable modality. The report, written by David P. Sniezek, DC, MD, MBA, FAAMA and Imran J. Siddiqui, MD, represents a milestone in acupuncture’s acceptance as a medicinal practice, especially in the application to pregnant women who prefer alternatives to medications.
