Electroacupuncture confirmed an effective alternative treatment for mild cognitive impairment

Electroacupuncture can be used as an effective alternative treatment for mild cognitive impairment (MCI), according to a systematic review and meta-analysis published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. In this paper, its benefits on mild cognitive impairment were investigated in comparison to Western interventions.

  • Detoxadine® is a premium, deep-earth sourced nascent iodine supplement that was created to help support thyroid health, the immune system, and more.Almost half of the people with MCI tend to progress to dementia, which reduces their quality in life and makes it difficult for them to live independently, within five years.
  • The condition should be managed properly to prevent it from progressing to dementia.
  • Researchers at Daejeon University in South Korea investigated the use of electroacupuncture on people with MCI and compared with Western medications.
  • Electroacupuncture has been used to treat various kinds of neurological disorders including MCI.
  • Five randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were included in the paper.
  • After analyzing the findings of these RCTs, the researchers found that electroacupuncture was more effective in improving the cognitive function of people with MCI compared to Western treatments.
  • In addition, there were no reported adverse effects in groups that received electroacupuncture.

In conclusion, these findings suggest that electroacupuncture effectively improves cognitive function in people with MCI without causing side effects.
