    Acupuncture and herbal supplements can help alleviate many of the symptoms of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). MDS is a condition in which bone marrow production of red blood cells (RBCs) is reduced. The causes of MDS include a prior history of cancer therapy and environmental toxins, including radiation, benzene, and certain pesticides and herbicides. A licensed practitioner will be able to establish a proper diagnosis according to traditional Chinese medicine and prescribe the appropriate treatment protocol.
