energy drinks

The buzz of energy drinks can come with a health price.

Drinking two cans a day, six days a week for three weeks resulted in an abnormal heart rhythm and a slight blood pressure increase for participants in a recent study.

The changes occurred while drinking the energy beverage and lasted for about two hours afterwards.

Acupuncture reduces blood pressure

AcupunctureAcupuncture has helped patients with high blood pressure bring the pressure down.

Patients who had the treatment found the drop in their blood pressure lasted up to six weeks.

Electroacupuncture was used in the project, which is the first to scientifically confirm that the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture can benefit mild to moderate high blood pressure.
