Kontrollierte Studie zum Aderlaß bei klimakterischen Beschwerden
Abstract: Blood-letting was examined in a controlled study in 58 women with climacteric distur-bances. The investigation shows significant better results for blood-letting than for placebo treatment. Considering contraindications there are only few side effects and a minimal risk for this method. Blood-letting is recommended not only for hot flushes, but for high blood pressure, headache and sleep disturbances in the climacteric period, too.
