How Safe is Acupuncture? In Perspective

Acupuncture has been practiced for 1000s of years, yet people rightfully want to know:

  • How safe is it?

  • What are the potential common and less common side effects?

  • Is it safe in people who take anti-coagulants?

  • Is it safe during pregnancy?

  • Is it safe to treat children?

...and in perspective:

  • How does it compare to standard medical care (3rd leading cause of death, USA)

  • How does it compare to medications side effects & safety (4th cause of death, USA)

In the following lecture I've given in Denmark last month, I review research and recommendations from the last 20 years regarding safety of acupuncture and compare it with medicare and medications.
