There are several reasons behind seeking an alternative medication for depression. The primary reason as to why people despise antidepressant is because it has a lot of side effects. Since takingantidepressant during the pregnancy is termed risky for the health of the baby, people often choose to seek alternative medication, as well.

Fortunately, a research suggests that acupuncture could be a viable option to treat depression. Apart from being the alternative medication for depression, according to one of the studies, acupuncture is also said to help treat the medications’ side effects.

If you are not fully aware of acupuncture, it’s a therapy where a practitioner inserts needles into the skin at points of the body thought to correspond with specific organs and thereby healing the disease.

Benefits Of AcupunctureOne of the studies suggests that acupuncture may help with one particularly difficult aspect of depression treatment: the sexual side effects of some medications. A twelve weeks of acupuncture helped both men and women with several aspects of sexual functioning.

Acupuncture significantly reduces the drug withdrawal symptoms. Moreover, some of the experts view acupuncture as a safe and potentially effective method of treating depression.

In the case of chronic anxiety and depression, Acupuncture and naturopathic medicine provide excellent strategies and tools for effectively treating both, and for supporting patients in working with their underlying stress.

Many studies have demonstrated the benefit of acupuncture for treating anxiety disorders and there is evidence that acupuncture’s effect is comparable to that of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a type of counseling commonly used for patients with anxiety and depression.

What to Expect When You Take Up Acupuncture?As said earlier, Acupuncture can be taken alone as a therapy but if the case is chronic, it can be accompanied with a naturopathic care. Initially, the therapy can be as much as 6-10 times weekly.  After that time, treatments may be spaced out to once every 2 weeks or continued weekly treatments may be recommended depending on how the treatment is progressing.  Over time as patients feel better and better, the time between visits gets longer until eventually patients only come for “tune up” treatments every 3 months to help maintain balance, or as needed when acutely stressful situations arise.

The experience of having acupuncture is pleasant, relaxing and energizing. The needles are hair thin, sterile and generally painless and never used twice. There may be a brief soreness or pulling sensation which means that your qi has connected with the needle.

I have heard of this acupuncture many times before. I have seen how it works as well. I am actually planning to make my father try the procedure not because he is depressed, but because I heard it is a very healthy treatment. I have also heard some other treatments as to the result of the treatment. I have heard that it gives a renewed strength for those who have been losing it because of age or some other diseases.

I do not completely believe in the benefits of acupuncture. Probably because I have not tried it firsthand. But upon reading your post, I can see that you did a research on this. Hence, making your article reliable. However, I suggest that maybe next time you could put it the links of your sources. So that if your readers want further information, they could read that as well. All in all, great post regarding acupuncture in treating depression.
