When we say endocrine system, we usually refer to Hypothalamus–Pituitary–Adrenal/Gonadal/Thyroid axis. Research shows that acupuncture can reduce ACTH and corticosterone hormones in chronic stress-induced rats.
Electroacupuncture regulates levels of estrogen, FSH and LH in rats with removed ovaries.
Acupuncture can also increase the levels of thyrotropin releasing hormone, thyroid stimulating hormone and total three typical thyroid original acid in chronic fatigue rats. All these studies suggest that acupuncture can modulate the function of HPA, HPG and HPT axes. Chinese Herbal Medicine targets specific glands and has adaptogenic effect to balance hormones. At Mulberry Leaf we successfully treat a wide range of endocrine issues on a daily basis.
