Effectiveness of acupuncture and related therapies for palliative care of cancer: overview of systematic reviews

There is conflicting evidence regarding the treatment of cancer-related pain, hot flashes and hiccups, and improving patients’ quality of life. The available evidence is currently insufficient to support or refute the potential of acupuncture and related therapies in the management of xerostomia, dyspnea and lymphedema and in the improvement of psychological well-being. No serious adverse effects were reported in any study.”

Many things, say four experts, who detailed a chain of problems from head to toe.”
