Acupuntura para tratar los síntomas de la menopausia

Aunque quizá no sea la solución para todas, hay un buen porcentaje de mujeres que podrían beneficiarse de la acupuntura como un remedio natural para contrarrestar los síntomas de la menopausia. Al menos así lo indica un reciente estudio publicado en el British Medical Journal.

Un grupo de investigadores turcos asignaron una terapia de acupuntura a un total de 53 mujeres con síntomas menopáusicos. Después de 10 sesiones de esta práctica de la medicina alternativa, las mujeres tratadas informaron una cantidad significativamente menor de sofocos y de cambios en el estado de ánimo.

Según explicaron los autores de la investigación, a más sesiones de acupuntura, mayores son los beneficios del tratamiento, particularmente para combatir los sofocos o bochornos.

In an acquisition that will go down in corporate finance history, 'Friday' singer Rebecca Black has bought and is now the chief executive officer of the entertainment website, according to a Funny Or Die press release.

Although this April Fools' Day announcement puts Black on top of the Funny or Die totem pole just today, we wouldn't put it past the ambitious 13-year-old to make similar moves in the future.

But for today only, Black hasn't wasted any time putting her stamp on the comedic empire, already renaming the site to

Elton John Tells Kings of Leon: 'Lighten Up, You A**holes'

Elton John is the latest in a list of celebrities joining in on the 'Glee' debate.

The legendary musician appeared on Jimmy Fallon's show last night to discuss, among other things, some artists' strong feelings about keeping their music off the show.

The Poof Is in the Paycheck: Rutgers Pays Snooki $32K

No, this is not an April Fools' Day joke. 'Jersey Shore' star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi earned a whopping $32,000 to appear at two Q&A sessions at Rutgers University on Thursday night, a fee that exceeds the amount Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison will make to deliver the school's commencement speech next month.

Topics discussed at the event, held at the Livingston Student Center, included her "poof" hairstyle, hooking up with guido juiceheads and taking long showers while shooting 'Shore' (because cameras can't follow her there).

According to The Star-Ledger of Newark, money for Snooki's appearance came from mandatory student activity fees, which is funded by tuition. Morrison is being paid $30,000 to speak at the commencement on May 15. That fee is not coming from students, however, but from PepsiCo, which has exclusive vending rights on campus.

Her stripey stilettos add a bit of funky style to to the look (not to mention making her legs go on for miles), and her subtle accessories make the full ensemble a hit. The gigantic smile across her face certainly didn't hurt either...


Comedian Marc Maron Gives Inside Glimpse at Charlie Sheen's Upcoming Live Tour

In the newest installment of the 'WTF with Marc Maron Podcast,' the 47-year-old stand-up comedian shared a big secret with his listeners.

Preparing for a new live tour, the potentially imploding star known as Charlie Sheen got some personal wisdom from Maron himself. Maron, who knew a promoter working on Sheen's upcoming 20-city tour dubbed 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show,' was asked to advise the erstwhile 'Two and a Half Men' star.

"This dude has an agenda, he has a vision. And many of you have heard part of that vision. But there's a bigger vision there," Maron said of his initial hotel meeting with Sheen, one of the goddesses and the tour promoter.

Maron ended up going to Sheen's home twice to see the workings of 'Violent Torpedo of Truth' being hammered out. "There was just a lot of people putting a lot of work into making this spectacle, this show, this event into something," Maron said.     

Crystal Harris Doesn't Want All of Hef's Exes at Her Wedding

Wilkinson is now threatening to attend another wedding that day, one she has rightfully been invited to.

Kendra should bank on attending the alternate wedding since sources close to Hef's betrothed tell PopEater that Harris is on the fence about whether she wants her big day packed with an audience of women her husband has slept with.

"This is Crystal's special day, and she doesn't want all of Hef's exes there," a friend says. "What woman would?"..

Si eres de los hombres que guarda su celular en un estuche sujeto a su cinturón o en una de las bolsas de su pantalón, es necesario que conozcas este estudio hecho en Argentina que asegura podrían estar en mayor riesgo de debilitamiento óseo en el área de la cadera.

Se notó que los hombres que llevaron el celular en la cadera derecha presentaban bajo contenido mineral en el cuello femoral, la región cercana a la parte superior del fémur. También tenían contenido y densidad mineral reducidos en el trocánter, un área en la parte superior exterior del fémur.

Descubren nuevo tratamiento para detener la pérdida de cabello

Un grupo de científicos acaban de descubrir un nuevo tratamiento para detener la pérdida de cabello causada por el estrés. Así es que, si se te suele caer el cabello cuando pasas por temporadas de mucho estrés, probablemente, ya no tendrás que preocuparte por esto cuando estés estresada.

Según el periódico El Mundo, la investigación sobre esta nueva técnica para evitar la alopecia, fue publicada por la revista científica PLoS One. En ella, los encargados del estudio explicaron que, gracias a una serie de pruebas realizadas con roedores- a quienes se les manipuló genéticamente para que produjeran una hormona del estrés conocida como corticoliberina- descubrieron que cuando se les inyectaba una sustancia llamada astressin-B, los ratones comenzaron a recuperar el pelo que habían perdido como consecuencia del "estrés".

Las fotos proporcionadas por los investigadores y que muestran la recuperación de pelo que sufrieron los roedores -después de que se les comenzara a aplicar esta sustancia-, realmente son sorprendentes. Pues las fotos del antes y después, comprueban cómo los ratones que habían perdido progresivamente parte de su pelaje, a causa de esta hormona del estrés, vuelven a recuperar su pelo, gracias a la aplicación del astressin-B.

Lady Gaga's teetering on the brink of a health meltdown.
And it's easy to see why when you look into her destructive lifestyle.
The singer admits she's following boyfriend Lüc Carl's ‘drunk diet' - he claims on his website that you can shed pounds without giving up beer and burgers.
She's also tested borderline positive for lupus - where the immune system attacks healthy cells in the body - and friends fear for her health.
‘Lüc's in great shape and she thinks it's down to his diet,' says a concerned pal.
‘In reality he gets drunk every day and has terrible nutrition.
'The problem is she thinks as long as she's thin, she's OK. She works out, but drinks every night and eats badly.
