Treadmill Talks: Alternative Health Treatment Improves Breathing in COPD Patients

Read Transcript

Acupuncture improves breathing and improves exercise performance in people with COPD, that's right if you get the appropriate acupuncture and you've got chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, aren't breathing as well as you should, your oxygen level improves, your endurance improves, and you have less symptoms of shortness of breath, pretty good acupuncture working.

Now my further take on it, make sure your acupuncturist shows you their certification. A lot of people can do acupuncture, but you want to get someone who's certified to do it by that you're state in order to be sure you're going to get the right treatment.
