I've been getting acupuncture on a weekly basis for the past year. I'm convinced that it helps with balance and also the aches and stiffness and that I was experiencing. The acupuncture is a very important part of my treatment plan that includes coconut oil, 30 minutes of exercise daily and, most importantly, a LOT of turmeric. If anyone would like to give it a try without purchasing supplements, I'd suggest a brisk 30 minute walk (faster than normal, as if you're late for an appointment) followed by a generous serving of strong homemade yellow curry with black pepper (important-don't skip the pepper. It vastly improves the effectiveness of the turmeric). with one tablespoon of coconut oil mixed in. For me, the results have been a dramatic improvement.
If this works for you , please let me know.
