Does acupuncture work for lupus?
There is no proof that acupuncture will help everyone who tries it with pain, depression and/or weight gain. However, there are many people who feel that acupuncture has helped them. So, it may be a type of treatment worth considering.
The best way to proceed would be to learn as much as you can about the treatment. You should also speak to your doctor about whether its right for you. Then, get recommendations for a qualified and licensed acupuncture practitioner. Preferably, someone has worked with people with lupus in the past.
