Researchers (Zheng-tao, et al.) find acupuncture effective for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and conclude that it is a potentially valid and successful substitute for the CPAP machine.

Acupuncture outperforms a benzodiazepine medication for the treatment of insomnia.
Researchers find acupuncture more effective for the relief of insomnia than estazolam, a benzodiazepine pharmaceutical drug. Using Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) scores as a basis of comparison, acupuncture outperformed estazolam for the improvement of “sleep quality, efficiency disturbance and daytime dysfunction.” The researchers note that the acupuncture protocol used to achieve the treatment results included a specialized order for inserting the acupuncture needles and that the “sequence of acupuncture points” plays an important role.
Have you heard of homeopathy but never really understood how homeopathic remedies work? While it may come across as intimidatingly complex, this natural health practice is in fact based on a simple healing principle: ‘like cures like.’ In other words, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, a very small amount of the same substance given to the person may cure the illness. A “homeopathic” dose suggests that an infinitesimal amount of what ails actually enhances the body’s normal healing and self-regulatory processes.
