Designated locations along nerves or organ meridians for inserting acupuncture needles.
Analgesia produced by the insertion of ACUPUNCTURE needles at certain ACUPUNCTURE POINTS on the body. This activates small myelinated nerve fibers in the muscle which transmit impulses to the spinal cord and then activate three centers - the spinal cord, midbrain and pituitary/hypothalamus - to produce analgesia.
The hearing and equilibrium system of the body. It consists of three parts: the EXTERNAL EAR, the MIDDLE EAR, and the INNER EAR. Sound waves are transmitted through this organ where vibration is transduced to nerve signals that pass through the ACOUSTIC NERVE to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The inner ear also contains the vestibular organ that maintains equilibrium by transducing signals to the VESTIBULAR NERVE.
Acupuncture therapy by inserting needles in the ear. It is used to control pain and for treating various ailments.
The essential part of the hearing organ consists of two labyrinthine compartments: the bony labyrinthine and the membranous labyrinth. The bony labyrinth is a complex of three interconnecting cavities or spaces (COCHLEA; VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH; and SEMICIRCULAR CANALS) in the TEMPORAL BONE. Within the bony labyrinth lies the membranous labyrinth which is a complex of sacs and tubules (COCHLEAR DUCT; SACCULE AND UTRICLE; and SEMICIRCULAR DUCTS) forming a continuous space enclosed by EPITHELIUM and connective tissue. These spaces are filled with LABYRINTHINE FLUIDS of various compositions.

Classical loci in ACUPUNCTURE. They are main and collateral channels, regarded as a network of passages, through which vital energy (Qi) circulates and along which acupoints (ACUPUNCTURE POINTS) are distributed. The meridians are a series of 14 lines upon which more than 400 acupoints are located on the body. (The Pinyin Chinese-English Dictionary, p. 359; Dr. Wu Lancheng, Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Beijing)

The vital life force in the body, supposedly able to be regulated by acupuncture. It corresponds roughly to the Greek pneuma, the Latin spiritus, and the ancient Indian prana. The concept of life-breath or vital energy was formulated as an indication of the awareness of man, originally directed externally toward nature or society but later turned inward to the self or life within.

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
Involuntary discharge of URINE during sleep at night after expected age of completed development of urinary control.

The role of acupuncture in controlling the gagging reflex using a review of ten cases. (1/22)

The gagging reflex is a physiological reaction which safeguards the airway from foreign bodies. In some people this response is exaggerated to the extent that the acceptance/provision of dental treatment is not possible. The aim of this paper is to review the role of acupuncture in controlling gagging as a safe, cheap, quick and relatively non-invasive technique. METHOD: Ten people agreed to try ear acupuncture to control gagging during dental treatment. Prior to treatment the severity of gagging was assessed. Acupuncture needles were inserted into a specific anti-gagging point on each ear, manipulated briefly and left in situ. Dental treatment was then carried out and the effectiveness of the acupuncture in preventing gagging was assessed. After treatment, the needles were removed and the patient discharged. All acupuncture was carried out by a dentist trained in its use. RESULTS: Four people had a severe gag reflex which made treatment impossible and six had a very severe reflex which made treatment impossible and affected their dental attendance. Ear acupuncture completely controlled the gag reflex in eight cases (23 treatment episodes) and partially controlled the reflex in two cases (two treatment episodes). Dental treatment could be carried out in all cases and at all visits. The cost of materials was 0.2 pounds per person per visit. Additional clinical time was in the order of 2-3 minutes. There were no adverse reactions to the technique and, on all occasions, patients were fit to leave the surgery and travel home unaccompanied. CONCLUSIONS: Ear acupuncture was successful in controlling the gag reflex. It is a safe, quick, inexpensive and relatively noninvasive technique. A controlled clinical trial is required to investigate any placebo effect.  (+info)

Auricular acupuncture, education, and smoking cessation: a randomized, sham-controlled trial. (2/22)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the effect of acupuncture alone and in combination with education on smoking cessation and cigarette consumption. METHODS: We prospectively studied 141 adults in a quasi-factorial design using acupuncture, sham acupuncture, and education. RESULTS: All groups showed significant reductions in smoking and posttreatment cigarette consumption, with the combined acupuncture-education group showing the greatest effect from treatment. The trend continued in follow-up; however, significant differences were not maintained. Greater pack-year history (i.e. the number of years smoking multiplied by baseline number of cigarettes smoked per year, divided by 20 cigarettes per pack) negatively correlated with treatment effect. Trend analysis suggested 20 pack-years as the cutoff point for this correlation. CONCLUSIONS: Acupuncture and education, alone and in combination, significantly reduce smoking; however, combined they show a significantly greater effect, as seen in subjects with a greater pack-year history.  (+info)

Analgesic effect of auricular acupuncture for cancer pain: a randomized, blinded, controlled trial. (3/22)

PURPOSE: During the last 30 years, auricular acupuncture has been used as complementary treatment of cancer pain when analgesic drugs do not suffice. The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of auricular acupuncture in decreasing pain intensity in cancer patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety patients were randomly divided in three groups; one group received two courses of auricular acupuncture at points where an electrodermal signal had been detected, and two placebo groups received auricular acupuncture at points with no electrodermal signal (placebo points) and one with auricular seeds fixed at placebo points. Patients had to be in pain, attaining a visual analog score (VAS) of 30 mm or more after having received analgesic treatment adapted to both intensity and type of pain, for at least 1 month of therapy. Treatment efficacy was based on the absolute decrease in pain intensity measured 2 months after randomization using the VAS. RESULTS: The main outcome was pain assessed at 2 months, with the assessment at 1 month carried over to 2 months for the eight patients who interrupted treatment after 1 month. For three patients, no data were available because they withdrew from the study during the first month. Pain intensity decreased by 36% at 2 months from baseline in the group receiving acupuncture; there was little change for patients receiving placebo (2%). The difference between groups was statistically significant (P <.0001). CONCLUSION: The observed reduction in pain intensity measured on the VAS represents a clear benefit from auricular acupuncture for these cancer patients who are in pain, despite stable analgesic treatment.  (+info)

Parental auricular acupuncture as an adjunct for parental presence during induction of anesthesia. (4/22)

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine whether parental auricular acupuncture reduces parental preoperative anxiety and thus allows children to benefit from parental presence during induction of anesthesia. METHODS: Mothers of children who were scheduled to undergo surgery were randomly assigned to an acupuncture intervention group (auricular press needles at relaxation, tranquilizer point, and master cerebral point) or a sham acupuncture control group (auricular press needles at the shoulder, wrist, and extraneous auricular point). The intervention was performed at least 30 min before the child's induction of anesthesia. All mothers were present during induction of anesthesia. The behavioral and physiologic anxiety of mothers and children were rated during the perioperative process. RESULTS: : Multivariable analysis examining maternal anxiety as a function of group found a group-by-time interaction (F1,65 = 4.1, P = 0.04). That is, after induction, maternal anxiety in the acupuncture group was significantly lower (42.9 +/- 10 vs. 49.5 +/- 11; P = 0.014). A multivariate model (F1,65 = 4.8, P =0.031) also showed that children whose mothers received the acupuncture intervention were significantly less anxious on entrance to the operating room (34.9 +/- 20 vs. 47.4 +/- 26; P = 0.03) and during introduction of the anesthesia mask (38.6 +/- 25 vs. 55.6 +/- 31; P = 0.016). There were no significant differences in maternal blood pressure and heart rate between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: : Auricular acupuncture significantly decreased maternal anxiety during the preoperative period. Children of mothers who underwent acupuncture intervention benefitted from the reduction of maternal anxiety during the induction of anesthesia.  (+info)

Dan zhi xiao yao yin combined with auricular-point-pressing for treatment of optic atrophy--a clinical observation of 51 cases. (5/22)

To evaluate the therapeutic effect of Dan Zhi Xiao Yao Yin ([symbol: see text] Decoction of Moutan Bark and Capejasmine) combined with auricular-point-pressing therapy for treatment of optic atrophy. The visual acuity and visual field was observed in the 51 cases (58 eyes) from the treatment group that were treated with Dan Zhi Xiao Yao Yin combined with auricular-point-pressing therapy and the 43 cases (49 eyes) from the control group that were treated with routine western drugs at the end of the trial (60 days). The effective rates of increase in visual acuity obtained in the treatment and the control groups were 79.3% and 44.89% respectively and enlargement in visual field were 61.9% and 22.6% respectively. Statistical analysis showed that there were significant differences between two groups (P<0.05). The therapeutic effect of Dan Zhi Xiao Yao Yin combined with auricular-point -pressing therapy in increasing the visual acuity and enlarging the visual field was superior to that of the routine western drugs.  (+info)

The effects of the acupuncture treatment for smoking cessation in high school student smokers. (6/22)

The use of alternative medicine for smoking cessation have been increasing steadily in recent years. A series of clinical group studies was performed to clarify the effect, outcome and success rate of an acupuncture treatment for smoking cessation. This study was conducted for four weeks using 238 smoking students at 2 high schools. The subjects were separated into two groups: 159 students were treated with acupuncture on the anti-smoking acupoints of the ear, which is known to be effective for cessation of smoking (case group), and 79 students were treated at other sites of the ear (control group). The acupuncture treatment was alternately administered at each side of the ears on a weekly basis for 4 weeks. The smoking cessation success was only 1 case (0.6%) in the case group and none in the control group after 4 weeks. The change in the taste of tobacco and the intensity of the desire to smoke were not significantly different between the case and control groups, but the case group showed a tendency of reduction in the taste of tobacco and the intensity of the desire to smoke. In addition, the reduction in cigarette consumption was not significant, but the tendency of reduction in the study group was significant. It is believed that the site of auricular acupuncture for smoking cessation is not important. However, there was a significant tendency in terms of the reduction in cigarette consumption, the taste of tobacco and the intensity of the desire to smoke in the case group, indicating that auricular acupuncture in smoking cessation has some effect.  (+info)

Acupuncture treatment of simple obesity. (7/22)

In order to investigate the therapeutic effects of ear acupuncture, body acupuncture and the combined use of the two in the treatment of simple obesity, 195 cases of obesity were divided into three groups, in which different reinforcing and reducing methods were applied according to their symptoms and signs. The effects of body acupuncture and body plus ear acupuncture were obviously superior to that of ear acupuncture, and the combined use of ear acupuncture and body acupuncture was better than that of simple body acupuncture.  (+info)

Auricular electro-acupuncture as an additional perioperative analgesic method during oocyte aspiration in IVF treatment. (8/22)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare the pain-relieving effect and the subjective well-being between auricular electro-acupuncture (EA) analgesia, auricular acupuncture (A) and conventional analgesia with remifentanil (CO). METHODS: A total of 94 women undergoing IVF were randomized to auricular acupuncture with (EA, n = 32) or without (A, n = 32) continuous 1 Hz auricular stimulation (using a battery-powered miniaturized stimulator, P-Stim) or with adhesive tapes instead of needles and no electrical stimulation (control group, CO, n = 30) at the auricular acupuncture points 29, 55 and 57. All patients received patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) with remifentanil. Pain intensity and psychological well-being were assessed by means of visual analogue scales (VAS); tiredness, nausea and vomiting and analgesic drug consumption were documented. RESULTS: Pain relief and subjective well-being were significantly greater in group EA during and after the procedure as compared with groups A and CO (P < 0.001). The patients were significantly more tired in group CO than in groups A and EA (P < 0.001). Consumption of the opioid remifentanil was significantly lower in group EA, comparable nausea (P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: Auricular EA significantly reduces pain intensity and analgesic consumption of the opioid remifentanil during oocyte aspiration in IVF treatment.  (+info)

What is the History of Auriculotherapy?. The earliest written records of ear acupuncture date back to the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine, a compilation of acupuncture procedures that were in practice in 500 BC. Within this extensive text that covers a variety of acupuncture treatments, there is mention of specific acupuncture points on the external ear for the relief of certain medical disorders. However, the manner in which auricular acupuncture is practiced today in China is actually based upon more recent discoveries that occurred in France in the 1950s. The Traditional Oriental Medicine practiced in ancient China included just a scattered array of acupoints on the auricle for just a few health problems, whereas the current practice of auricular acupuncture shows a more complete organization of ear reflex points that can be used to relieve many health problems. In the West, the earliest references to ear treatments were referred to in medical records from ancient Egypt, ...
As a result of the increasing worldwide research into auricular acupuncture, the field is now considered by many physicians to be an evidence-based medicine. Gary Stanton at the Department of Neurology, Sleep Medicine and Pain Medicine Services at Emerson Hospital in the USA, offers a summary of the history of auricula
Auricular Acupuncture is the stimulation of acupuncture points on the external ear surface only for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other areas of the body.
Permanent auriculotherapy relies on the principles of acupuncture. But as the name implies, it is permanent - meaning the needles stay in. For the sake of accuracy, it might be better to use the term micro-implant rather than needle.. These implants are made of titanium and are applied to the patients auricular pavilion. The auricle is the part of the ear thats outside your head, the part thats visible.. In other words, the implants go in the cartilage of the patients ear. Thats why another name for this technique is auricular acupuncture. Or, to use the simplest terms possible, it is a form of ear acupuncture.. This treatment is effective because the auricular pavilion is connected to the central nervous system through numerous nerve endings. By applying the micro-implants to specific spots, it is possible to stimulate these signals.. As mentioned, Parkinsons disease prevents the patients body from producing enough dopamine. However, auriculotherapy creates stimuli which can help ...

Endometriosis is a gynaecological disease that causes chronic pelvic pain, most notably painful menstruation, as the most common complaint. Acupuncture is frequently used to treat both pain and various gynaecological conditions. This review examined the effectiveness of acupuncture for reducing pain in endometriosis; however only one study met our inclusion criteria. The data from the included study, involving 67 women, indicated that ear acupuncture is more effective compared to Chinese herbal medicine for reducing menstrual pain. The study did not report whether participants suffered any side effects from their treatments. Larger, well‐designed studies comparing acupuncture with conventional therapies are necessary to confirm these results.
Stop smoking, through stimulating specific points in the ear causing the brain to release neurotransmitters (such as endorphins and dopamine) that help to break the addiction cycle. Theralase combines treatment with behavioural modification addiction counseling and nutritional guidance to create programs with a very high rate of success.. Using the principals of ear acupuncture (auriculotherapy), targets specific ear points to induce the brain chemistry to release neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphins (the pleasure chemicals of the brain) to travel to different sections of the brain, which help to break the addiction cycle. The nucleus accumbens mediates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which underlies pleasure and relaxation. But the dopamine itself is released from the ventral tegmental area (VTA), another contender for the title of pleasure center. The VTA releases dopamine to the nucleus accumbens, the prefrontal cortex, amygdala, and septum, all of ...
The use of ear acupuncture within behavioral health/psychiatric care has expanded in recent years, particularly within US and Indian military units (Niemtzow, 2011, Smith, 2012), European and US prisons and psychiatric hospitals (Smith, Carter, Landgren, & Stuyt, 2011). A national survey in Sweden found that the NADA protocol is widely used in public psychiatric programs (Lindell & Ek, 2010). An estimated 130 prisons in Europe offer the NADA protocol for inmates, with treatments provided by over 500 NADA-trained correctional staff (Smith et al., 2011). Acupuncture continues to be accepted within mainstream psychiatric treatment in the US. Yale Medical School has established a NADA training program for psychiatric residents (Bruce, 2011). The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense Evidence Based Practice Guidelines (2010) assigns a good quality of evidence to support the use of acupuncture to treat post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including symptoms of pain, ...
The founder of Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture, French medical pioneer Dr Paul Nogiers work was greatly advanced by a brilliant German physician, Dr Frank Bahr, MD. Dr Bahr and several of his colleagues used Dr Nogiers primary findings to develop an elaborate and precise system of medicine based upon VAS pulse diagnosis, frequency medicine & quantum physics, Chinese Medical theory, modern Western Medicine, psychology, homeopathy and more. German Auricular Medicine (GAM) is a complete system of assessment and treatment designed to find and remove hidden blockages to healing. I have found this approach of identifying and resolving hidden blockages one of the most important concepts in medicine -- especially in helping people with difficult, non-responsive conditions. Hidden blockages that cause dysregulation in the autonomic nervous system (and thus ill health), can include scars, old injuries, unresolved emotions, trauma, infections and toxicity. German Auricular Medicine gives us a powerful ...
Acupuncture entered France via colonial rule of Vietnam. It was there that, in 1957, the French medical doctor Paul Nogier conceived the notion of auricular (ear) acupuncture. According to his theory, the entire overall body is mapped on to the ear in the form of the inverted fetus. Applying This method of correspondence, one can, As outlined by Nogier, deal with any Portion of your body by managing the corresponding Component of the ear. This technique was subsequently taken up in China, even if it were invented within the West, and experienced no real foundation in traditional exercise. (Common acupuncture contains just a few details over the ear, and isnt going to seek advice from any illustration of the whole physique.) Nogier claimed to acquire scientifically examined his concept, nevertheless the strategies he utilised to accomplish this fall far in need of nearly anything recognizable as modern-day science. There isnt any thoroughly built experiments to aid the small person within ...

Using ear acupuncture (German Auricular style) and palpating the radial pulse, we can find blockages to healing that are called a FOCUS that are inhibiting the ability of the body to regain health. A FOCUS could be a scar tissue, surgical scar, emotional trauma or a mental blockage. After clearing the FOCUS from the nervous system the body is able to resolve chronic issues it was previously not able to overcome and heal from. For example: a patient that is recovering from a car accident bu
The US Department of Defense has forty licensed acupuncturists providing treatment and training throughout the military.. A recent article published by the Air Force describes patient accounts of their impressions and successes. The acupuncture is a stylistic variant of ear acupuncture, militaristically named battlefield acupuncture, that uses gold studs inserted into the ears.. Several interesting quotes -. In the beginning, many people were skeptical, but after seeing it demonstrated on patients and the benefits achieved -- especially in the area of pain -- the majority of physicians embraced it and learned how to use it in their practice as an adjunctive therapy. and. I dont know how it works and I dont really care as long it keeps working.. The full story can be found here.. Posted by mpence at 04:40 PM ...
What a pity there are so few people now in this country or elsewhere in the world, it seems, who are just practising five element acupuncture as we were all taught it by JR Worsley. In other words, these are people who base their practice on directing all their efforts at strengthening one element which gives each person their particular direction in life. So many people now, it appears, mix this approach with all kinds of different add-ons, such as Japanese acupuncture, treatment of syndromes, herbs, Tuina or ear acupuncture. Each of these can have with their own quite valid approach to balancing a patients health, but, when added to treatment on the guardian element, dilutes what we are offering by confusing the elements. Its a bit as though we are speaking one language with the elements, and then throw in the odd phrase in another language. ...

flickr size=medium float=right]5481294323[/flickr]. Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of the auricle of the external ear to diagnose and treat health conditions in other parts of the body. The auricle could be compared to an inverted fetus, with the head represented on the lower ear lobe, the feet at the top of the external ear, and the rest of the body in-between.. Modern applications of this method are based on the work of Dr. Paul Nogier from France who practiced in the 1950s. In recognition of Nogiers discoveries and research on the auricle, the Chinese Government honored him by awarding him a formal title Father of Modern Auricular Therapy.. Dr. Michael Smith is recognized internationally as the psychiatrist who pioneered the use of these procedures in the field of chemical dependency. He developed an accepted auricular therapy protocol at Lincoln Hospital, New York. In 1987, the program was redesigned to focus on court-related referrals. Based on the Lincoln Hospital model, Dr. ...

As most of us know, acupuncture is one of the oldest and most widely spread healing methods in the world. According to traditional Chinese medicine, life energy circulates through the body along channels of energy through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers and streams flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish all of the bodys tissues and cells. An obstruction or blockage in the movement of energy in these meridians is like a dam that backs up which then causes pain and other symptoms. Each meridian is related to a specific organ and usually covers an extensive but very specific area of the body. The course of a specific meridian within the body can explain why, for example, a disturbed gallbladder meridian can lead to headaches and a disturbed kidney meridian causes low back and knee pain.. A specific meridian is influenced by needling acupuncture points which are found along its course- the needles unblock the dams and re-establish ...
The clincher for me is that he calls on the Wisdom of Pirates. Niemtzow says Even 18th-century pirates were convinced of the value, piercing their lobes with earrings to improve their night vision. Did the British ever tell the US that eating carrots improved the night vision of Royal Air Force pilots during the Battle of Britain?. This French, Chinese and Pirate wisdom is proving very useful apparently as Battlefield acupuncture has been especially effective among patients suffering from a combination of combat wounds, typically a brain injury or severed limbs, burns and penetrating wounds along with severe disorientation and anxiety.. So, we shall see. It has yet to be deployed into Iraq battlefield operations and has to overcome skepticism within the ranks of military doctors. I doubt it ever will be. What we do know is that the organisation that Niemtzow works for does quite a good job of promoting acupuncture in the US. For an academic institution, it is quite surprising to find on ...

In other parts of the world, cauterization (burning) of the ear to treat sciatic pain was performed in ancient Greek medicine, and was also part of the Islamic medical canon.. The modern systems of auriculotherapy originated in the late 1950s in Europe, which has a much longer tradition of acupuncture than we do in the U.S., and from there spread back to China. The story goes that a French doctor, Paul Nogier, noticed cauterization scars on the ears of patients whose sciatic pain had been cured; he traced the scars to a lay practitioner in Marseille, Mrs. Barrin, who had learned to treat sciatic pain using the technique from her father, who had himself learned it from a Chinese practitioner. She applied a hot needle to a specific area of the external ear (later determined by Nogier to correspond to the lumbar/sacral junction), and people reported that their sciatic pain disappeared quickly.. Nogier and other practitioners in France and Europe developed a complete system of anatomical ...

As well as seeing a patients experience, these holistic wellness practitioners perform heart analysis (palpation of the radial artery pulse), human anatomy palpation, and other distinctive non-invasive diagnostic measures.. When a Asian medication practitioner has developed his findings, and has arrived at a conclusive therapy technique, some of many holistic drugs he might present contain Asian natural medicine, acupuncture, holistic nourishment assistance, moxibustion, cupping, Tuina (Chinese medical massage), Qigong, or Tai Chi, among others. Some specialized practitioners may possibly administer auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture) as a wellness treatment..

Aim To examine the proposed somatotopic relation between the regions in which patients report musculoskeletal pain and tender points located on the external ears according to a map based on commonly used auricular acupuncture maps.. Methods Twenty-five patients (16 women) from a chronic pain clinic were included. Patients were asked, before examination of the external ears, if they had past or present musculoskeletal pain in any of 11 body regions. An ear map, collapsed into 11 zones representing the musculoskeletal system, was used. The ear examiner was blinded to the patients pain conditions, medical history and ongoing treatment. Patients communicated with the examiner only to express if tenderness was present in the external ear on palpation using a spring-loaded pressure stylus commonly used for auricular acupuncture. The degree of tenderness was registered on a 5-point scale and dichotomised (no tenderness or tenderness). Agreements between the patients painful body regions and ...
Studies addressing the effect of AA on GI motility dysfunction in clinical practice have been widely reported, although only a few basic research studies have been conducted. Based on previous literature regarding SA treatment for GI motility, a reduced GI motility model using anhydrous ethanol was adopted for the study19 which primarily leads to acute gastric mucosal injury,19 thereby inhibiting gastric contraction and acetylcholine release39 as well as inducing ANS dysfunction.21. Our study revealed that, compared with the control group, SA significantly increased the GI transit rate in this rat model, confirming that stimulating ST36 can regulate GI motility. Moreover, the GI transit rate was increased in both the AA and SA groups compared with the control group, indicating that AA has a similar effect to SA on regulation of GI motility. This effect was inhibited by the presence of atropine. The preliminary experiment proved the hypothesis that electrical stimulation applied in the ABVN ...

The case for acupuncture treatment to actually enhance performance is intriguing. While very little has been actually researched on the subject, I personally have many years of experience, dating back to the 1984 L.A. Olympics, with the use of pre-performance needling. One technique is to directly treat the muscles of the upper and lower extremities - like flipping a switch to get them temporarily stronger and quicker. Given that many of these points have such specific anatomical sites, it is at least reasonable to think this could occur. Another procedure is called auricular acupuncture. This type of treatment is done in the ear, which is a micro-system for the rest of the body. It might sound strange, but there are hospitals and other governmental organizations that use auricular treatments for drug and alcohol addiction. Small sterile acupuncture tacks are retained in the ear while the athlete competes, and may be just enough to give that extra push during a race ...
Abstract: Following a complete gynecologic--endocrinologic workup, 45 infertile women suffering from oligoamenorrhea (n = 27) or luteal insufficiency (n = 18) were treated with auricular acupuncture. Results were compared to those of 45 women who received hormone treatment. Both groups were matched for age, duration of infertility, body mass index, previous pregnancies, menstrual cycle and tubal patency. Women treated with acupuncture had 22 pregnancies, 11 after acupuncture, four spontaneously, and seven after appropriate medication. Women treated with hormones had 20 pregnancies, five spontaneously, and 15 in response to therapy. Four women of each group had abortions. Endometriosis (normal menstrual cycles) was seen in 35% (38) of the women of each group who failed to respond to therapy with pregnancy. Only 4 of the women who responded to acupuncture or hormone treatment with a pregnancy had endometriosis, and 7% had normal cycles. In addition, women who continued to be infertile after ...

Q: Can acupuncture help with Sjoegrens syndrome, immune disease affecting connective tissue, salivary glands, symptoms include dry mouth, reynauds tingling/burning hands and feet.. A: As you are probably fully aware Sjogrens can occur as either a primary or secondary condition whose origin is not entirely clear. Treatment is usually supportive and symptomatic rather than curative, and the wide array of potential symptoms which arise from the change in moisture producing cells means that research studies are not as common as would normally be the case.. This is certainly the case with acupuncture trials and Sjogrens. We wouldnt want to quote specific studies because they tend to be small and methodologically under-powered but if you use an open access database like NCBI by typing in ncbi acupuncture Sjogrens you will find at least half a dozen studies which report significant changes from treatment, whether it be with acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, electroacupuncture or Chinese herbal ...

According to a study on vaginal practices by the World Health Organization published in 2011, one of the ways in which women practice vaginal care is by "Vaginal steaming or smoking: the 'steaming' or 'smoking' of the vagina, by sitting above a source of heat (fire, coals, hot rocks) on which water, herbs, or oils are placed to create steam or smoke".[2] For that study, over 4,000 women in Tete (Mozambique), KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa), Yogyakarta (Indonesia), and Chonburi (Thailand) were asked about their vaginal care. When it came to vaginal steaming/smoking, very different results were obtained, and very different reasons were given: in Chonburi, 67% of women reported having performed vaginal steaming or smoking, "which they associated with maintaining wellness and feminine identity", especially after having given birth (85.5%). In Tete, only 10% of women practiced steaming or smoking, "mostly intended to enhance male sexual pleasure by causing vaginal tightening (64.1% of users) and drying ...

The Siddha science is a traditional treatment system generated from Tamil culture. Palm leaf manuscripts say that the Siddha system was first described by Lord Shiva to his wife Parvati. Parvati explained all this knowledge to her son Lord Muruga. He taught all this knowledge to his disciple sage Agasthya. Agasthya taught 18 Siddhars and they spread this knowledge to human beings.[8] Siddha is focused on "Ashtamahasiddhi," the eight supernatural power. Those who attained or achieved these powers are known as Siddhars. There were 18 important Siddhars in olden days and they developed this system of medicine. Hence, it is called Siddha medicine. The Siddhars wrote their knowledge in palm leaf manuscripts, fragments of which were found in parts of South India. It is believed that some families may possess more fragments but keep them solely for their own use. There is a huge collection of Siddha manuscripts kept by traditional Siddha families.[8] According to the manikandan, there were 22 principal ...

MCS was first proposed as a distinct disease by Theron G. Randolph in 1950. In 1965, Randolph founded the Society for Clinical Ecology as an organization to promote his ideas about symptoms reported by his patients. As a consequence of his insistence upon his own, non-standard definition of allergy and his unusual theories about how the immune system and toxins affect people, the ideas he promoted were widely rejected, and clinical ecology emerged as a non-recognized medical specialty.[13] In the 1990s, an association was noted with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and Gulf War syndrome.[49] In 1994, the AMA, American Lung Association, US EPA and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission published a booklet on indoor air pollution that discusses MCS, among other issues. The booklet further states that a pathogenesis of MCS has not been definitively proven, and that symptoms that have been self-diagnosed by a patient as related to MCS could actually be related to allergies or have a ...
