Men Find Health Benefits with Acupuncture

© Pacific College of Oriental Medicine

While Father's Day makes us think about how much we love the men in our lives, recent studies show that men's health has been steadily declining. Acupuncture, however, may help many of the common ailments that men face.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 190,000 more men are diagnosed with a cancer than women each year, and the National Center for Health Statistics estimates that 29,000 more men died of cancer in 1992 than women. Furthermore, according to the American Heart Association, 6 percent of Americans who experience heart attacks are men, with men between the ages 29-44 having a 41 times higher chance of having a heart attack than women. Other ailments that are common to men include high blood pressure, prostate disorders, diabetes, smoking, and obesity.

Acupuncture has been cited by the World Health Organization to treat over 43 conditions, including those previously mentioned. Using acupuncture to treat health problems of concern to men has been growing in popularity; a Kaiser study conducted in 1996 found that 57.2 percent of primary care physicians in Northern California used or recommended acupuncture in the previous year. And according to the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, nearly one out of every 10 adults in the United States has tried acupuncture.
