Here’s a study that shows acupuncture is helpful for people with heart failure: http://www.naturalnews.com/029377_acupuncture_heart_failure.html. It appears to be one of the typical studies that compares a “sham” protocol to a “real” acupuncture protocol. I’ve written in earlier posts about the problems with such protocols, but it’s always nice to see when a simple protocol works; it’s clinically useful information that can be used to help many people.
