A recent study reveals that acupuncture has a curative effect on patients with cerebral vasospasm.This is a severe vasoconstriction of arteries and is located in the subarachnoid cavity covering the brain. The vasospasm decreases blood flow to the area and may cause ischemia, infarction, stroke and death. This new research demonstrates that combining acupuncture, herbal medicine and pharmaceutical medication together is significantly more effective than using only drugs.
During a randomized controlled trial, researchers divided 60 patients equally into a control group and an acupuncture treatment group. Patients in the control group received conventional medication. Patients in the acupuncture treatment group received the same medication as the control group plus acupuncture and the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbal formula Xue Fu Zhu Yu Tang (Decoction for Driving Out Blood Stasis in the Blood Mansion). After 4 weeks of treatment, the outcome of the acupuncture treatment group was better than that of the control group and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05).
Generally, cerebral vasospasm is commonly a response to an aneurysmal hemorrhage. Symptomatic cerebral vasospasm often occurs when an atherosclerotic plaque in the internal carotid or vertebral arteries narrows the lumen. This leads to the dysfunction of cerebral vessels. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), symptomatic cerebral vasospasm is often listed in the headache category and is usually caused by a weak constitution plus the influence of exogenous pathogenic factors. The vasospasm leads to yang qi deficiency that causes blood to flow outside normal pathways eventually leading to blood stasis in cerebral channels.
In this study conducted by the neurosurgery department of Shanxi People's Hospital, the patients' courses of disease ranged from 48 hours to 2 weeks. TCM diagnostics confirmed these patients' symptoms belong to the category of stasis blocked tracts. Both the control group and the acupuncture group took comprehensive therapeutic measures addressing dehydration, hemostasis and prevention of gastrointestinal bleeding. Patients of the control group received nimodipine via intravenous pump at the rate of 2-4 ml per hour for 2 weeks. Next, they received oral administration of nimodipine for 2 weeks. Nimodipine is a calcium channel blocker used to prevent complications from a subarachnoid hemorrhage related vasospasm.
Acupuncture improves the functional and physical health of the heart in cases of chronic heart failure (CHF). Research published in the American Journal of Physiology, Heart and Circulatory Physiology demonstrates several major clinical benefits provided by acupuncture in cases of CHF. One of the most important discoveries is that acupuncture reduces the physical size of damage to the heart, infarct size, due to heart failure.
The researchers note that CHF is associated with significant neurohumoral responses including excess sympathetic nervous system activity. In this laboratory experiment, acupuncture demonstrated significant homeostatic regulatory effects on sympathetic nervous system responses. Excess cardiac sympathetic afferent reflexes resulting in overactive sympathetic tone combined with deficient parasympathetic activity is contributory towards heart failure and the risk of sudden death. Acupuncture successfully demonstrated regulatory responses on these systems to improve overall cardiac health.
Researchers at Xinjiang Medical University conclude that Shan Yao (Dioscorea opposita, wild yam) shows antihypertensive properties. Shan Yao reduced both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in laboratory rats with high blood pressure. They were fed a water based solution of Shan Yao for 6 weeks. The researchers measured Shan Yao’s ability to inhibit endothelin converting enzyme and improve antioxidant activity. They suggest that Shan Yao’s ability to lower blood pressure may be due to these biochemical changes.
The research suggests that Shan Yao’s medicinal benefits are due, in part, to its effects on the kidneys. The researchers measured reductions of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and serum creatinine (Scr) in the Shan Yao group over the control group. Based on these findings, the investigators conclude that Shan Yao improves renal function. Shan Yao demonstrated antioxidant properties. Lower MDA (malondialdehyde) and higher SOD (superoxide dismutase) levels were measured in the Shan Yao group.
A new meta-analysis finds evidence that acupuncture is effective in controlling cancer related symptoms. Studies support the use of acupuncture for the treatment of cancer related pain, nausea, fatigue, hot flashes, insomnia, vomiting, anxiety, depression and dry mouth. Based on these findings, the researchers suggest expanding studies into the beneficial clinical effects of acupuncture for cancer patients. Further, the researchers note that acupuncture used in the field of oncology requires a “constant dialog” between acupuncturists and other treating physicians for improved clinical outcomes.
The researchers note that acupuncture promotes several biological changes. Acupuncture activates neural, endocrine and immunological regulation. Citing modern evidence that acupuncture regulates the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems, the researchers suggest that this may be a biomedical correlate for the ancient Chinese theory that acupuncture balances yin and yang. They added that electro-acupuncture induces “serotonin release from the upper brain stem region and hypothalamus and stimulates endogenous opiate release (b‑endorphin, enkephalin, endomorphin, and dynorphin) which then alleviates cancer pain.” The research team also notes that acupuncture regulates the immune system in part by stimulating leukocytes, both granulocytes and lymphocytes. This is accomplished by acupuncture’s ability to stimulate the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis. Additional research presented demonstrated that acupuncture benefits both T-lymphocyte and Natural Killer cell (NK cell) function.
Research published in the American Journal of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine documented that herbal medicine helped a bottlenose dolphin overcome ulcerative stomatitis. A differential diagnosis was made of excess stomach heat and blood heat. An herbal formula was then powdered and put in fish that were fed to the dolphin. The dolphin showed significant improvements and no adverse effects occurred.
The bottlenose dolphin had multiple ulcerative lesions in both the gingiva and hard palate. A combination of antibiotics and anti-fungal medications did not affect the condition. Based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis, an herbal formula consisting of Mu Dan Pi, Mai Men Dong, Xuan Shen, Di Fu Zi, Huang Bai, Sheng Di Huang, Chi Shao, Dan Shen and Yu Jin was prepared. The dose was 4 grams of powdered herbs placed in fish and fed to the dolphin at a rate of 2 times per day for 6 months.
New immunohistochemical electron microscopy reveals that acupuncture protects brain cells in cases of heroin addiction. In controlled laboratory experiments of heroin addiction related brain damage, acupuncture restored nerve cells, endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria in the brain’s hippocampus and frontal lobe. The research team noted that they produced evidence demonstrating that acupuncture can partially reverse the effects of heroin related brain injuries.
Re-addiction is the process in which addicts become addicted, withdraw and detoxify and then become addicted again in a repeated cycle. This may lead to extensive and sometimes irreversible damage to the brain by causing excessive apoptosis and nerve demyelination. The researchers studied the effects of needling acupuncture points GV20 (Baihui) and GV14 (Dazhui) based on prior research demonstrating that this point combination “reduces neuronal loss and attenuates ultrastructural damage in cerebral ischemic rats.”
The National Institute on Drug Abuse states that 4.2 million people in the USA have used heroin at least once. It is estimated that 23% of these individuals become addicted. The majority of heroin users are under the age of 26. Overdoses, unregulated purity and potency and chronic pathological damage are common consequences of illicit heroin use.
Acupuncture is widely used in the treatment for peripheral facial paralysis (FP). In a recent study, researchers concluded that electroacupuncture and rehabilitation training combined with conventional acupuncture and physiotherapy can significantly improve facial paralysis symptoms in the early stage. The study involved a four week long trial in which patients receiving electroacupuncture and rehabilitation training statistically outperformed those receiving only conventional acupuncture and physiotherapy.
Peripheral facial paralysis is a common condition. The cosmetic drawback for the patient is obvious; the inability to perform normal communication is impaired. Patients are typically under great psychological stress in addition to their physical limitations due to this condition. FP is caused by the inflammation of facial nerves and treatments should be carried out in the early stage aiming at restoring the strength of facial mimetic muscles. Facial mimetic muscles are skeletal muscles of the face innervated by the facial nerve, cranial nerve VII. Early rehabilitation training can help maintain and restore the shape and function of mimetic muscles on the affected side and the appropriate stimulation of electroacupuncture improves excitability, flexibility and reactivity of the nerve system.
Researchers at Shehong County (Sichuan Province) TCM Hospital selected 102 patients from the Rehabilitation Outpatient Department and randomly divided them into the non-electroacupuncture control group and the electroacupuncture treatment group. These patients’ onset of the disease was within three days.
The control group consisted of 52 patients receiving treatments of moxibustion, acupoint application, massage, TDP and conventional medication. The acupuncture group’s acupoints were: Yangbai (GB14), Sibai (ST2), Quanliao (SI18), Cuanzhu (BL2), Jiache (ST6), Dicang (ST4), Hegu (LI4), (two) Yifeng (SJ17), and (two) Yixiang (LI20). Symptomatic and specialized point selections were added: Fengchi (GB20) for wind cold, Quchi (LI11) for wind heat, Fengchi (GB20) and Waiguan (SJ5) for pain in the mastoidea, Lianquan (RN23) for disappearance of taste or numbness in tongue and Zusanli (ST36) for use during the recovery period. All acupoints were retained for 30 minutes per day.
New X-ray images of acupuncture points show that unique structures exist. This and other incredible acupuncture research marks the start of the Year of the Horse. Additionally, new research confirms that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety and hypertension. Moreover, the anti-inflammatory effects of acupuncture can avert sepsis and save lives. Let’s take a look at these discoveries.
Scholars were amazed at the new CT (computerized tomography) scans of acupuncture points. The CT X-rays, published in the Journal of Electron Spectroscopy and Related Phenomena, reveal clear distinctions between non-acupuncture point and acupuncture point anatomical structures. New in-line phase contrast synchrotron radiation CT techniques reveal that acupuncture points have a uniquely high density of micro-vessels and contain a large amount of involuted microvascular structures that are not present in non-acupuncture points.
Acupuncture points have microvascular densities with bifurcations that “can be clearly seen around thick blood vessels” but non-acupuncture points show few thick blood vessels and none show fine, high density structures found in true acupuncture points. The researchers note that “the high brightness, wide spectrum, high collimation, polarization and pulsed structure of synchrotron radiation” facilitated the discovery. The research team concluded, “Our results demonstrated again the existence of acupoints, and also show that the acupoints are special points in mammals.”
Acupuncture and herbal medicine are used in the treatment of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) patients to alleviate suffering. Licensed acupuncturists commonly use tongue diagnosis. A recent study of 159 patients by New York University researchers reveals that HIV patients demonstrate common tongue diagnosis signs. Tongue diagnosis is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to evaluate a patient’s health.
Tongue diagnosis involves the inspection of the color, shape, size, texture and coating of the tongue. In TCM, this is used during differential diagnostic procedures. Tongue diagnoses help to determine the health of the internal organs. Tongue diagnoses are also helpful in determining if there are pathogenic factors affecting patients.
The New York University study of tongue diagnostics was part of a randomized, double-blinded, controlled clinical trial investigating the treatment of chronic nausea. The study was conducted in New York City (NYC) at a large academic health facility and consisted of 159 patients with HIV infections and chronic nausea.
Tongue acupuncture is effective for the treatment of depression.Researchers measured the synergistic effects of tongue acupuncture combined with traditional body style acupuncture. They concluded that tongue acupuncture is an effective application modality for the treatment of depression and demonstrated significantly reduced anxiety levels and improved heart rate scores. Electrocardiographic (ECG) biosignal recordings also confirmed improvements in HRV, heart rate variability.
Tongue acupuncture is a rare form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Recent research by Sun J.G. et al. has identified 40 acupuncture points on the tongue that directly correspond to internal organs and body parts. Wong V.C. et al. cites numerous studies demonstrating that both tongue acupuncture and body style acupuncture improve central and peripheral vision in pediatric patients. Research by Li et al. concludes that tongue acupuncture has a significant therapeutic effect for stroke patients. This latest research finds tongue acupuncture effective in enhancing the beneficial effects of body style acupuncture for the treatment of depression.
The new ICD-10 acupuncture insurance billing diagnosis codes will go live on October 1, 2014. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) gave the official word this week that there will be no more extensions except for rare hardship exemptionss. All acupuncturists must update their HCFA 1500 billing forms and/or insurance billing software for the launch. Insurance companies will not reimburse for acupuncture services if ICD-9 codes are used after the official launch date.
The new CMS ICD-10 codes do not open the door for Medicare reimbursement for acupuncture services. They pertain to a new ICD-10 seven character diagnosis coding system that replaces the current ICD-9 five character coding system. The Healthcare Medicine Institute (HealthCMi) publishes acupuncture continuing education online for acupuncture CEU and PDA credit. The HealthCMi news and blogging system has provided up-to-date information to streamline the process of transitioning to the ICD-10 system.

New research concludes that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of IBS, irritable bowel syndrome. IBS is characterized by chronic episodes of abdominal cramping and pain with diarrhea and/or constipation. The meta-analysis concludes, “Acupuncture exhibits clinically and statistically significant control of IBS symptoms.”
Published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, the study investigated all types of IBS: diarrhea predominant, constipation predominant and alternating. A total of 64 research papers were found on acupuncture for the treatment of IBS. The researchers used strict controls and study designs and sorted for “randomization, concealment of allocation, double blinding, and dropouts.” A total of 6 studies met the methodological quality required for trial inclusion. The researchers noted “our meta-analysis of six randomized controlled trials suggests that acupuncture improves the symptoms of IBS, including abdominal pain and distension, sensation of incomplete defecation, times of defecation per day, and state of stool.”
Acupuncture decreases the risk of stroke for patients with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). An investigation of 29,636 patients with TBI reveals that patients receiving acupuncture have a “lower probability of stroke than those without acupuncture treatment during the follow-up period.” Patients from 2000-2008 were reviewed from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. Follow-ups continued through the end of 2010. The study “showed significantly decreased risk of new-onset stroke events for patients with TBI who received acupuncture treatment. The present study is the first to report that acupuncture treatment was associated with reduced stroke risk for patients with TBI.”
The researchers note that acupuncture provides other medical benefits to patients with TBI. They noted, “Our previous study found that patients with TBI who received acupuncture treatment had less emergency care and hospitalization in the first year after injury compared with control.” Another study cited in the research “proved that acupuncture improves cognition and perception of sleep or sleep quality.”
Researchers at the Department of Surgery, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School have discovered that a form of acupuncture called electroacupuncture controls inflammation and may help to save lives. The researchers proved that electroacupuncture fights infections including polymicrobial peritonitis. In addition, they found that electroacupuncture reduces severe systemic inflammation due to infections, sepsis.
The researchers discovered that the anti-inflammatory effects of electroacupuncture “are voltage dependent.” Non-acupuncture points (sham points) did not exert anti-inflammatory responses. Additionally, “electroacupuncture with a wooden toothpick” did not reduce inflammation. Only true acupuncture (verum acupuncture) was effective in regulating cytokine levels, producing anti-inflammatory effects and preventing death.
The researchers discovered important biochemical changes stimulated by electroacupuncture. Electroacupuncture was found to significantly boost dopamine levels. Using this evidence, the researchers used the drug fenoldopam in their experiments because it has similar effective actions as dopamine. This drug was also effective in reducing sepsis.
A recent study concludes that acupuncture relieves generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), a condition characterized by excessively intense and debilitating chronic anxiety. GAD sufferers cannot relax, startle easily and have impaired concentration. Overall, GAD sufferers are chronically worried and anxious.
In this new study, researchers note that “a number of Meta analysis and system evaluations point out that acupuncture treatment has more advantages than drugs in the treatment of anxiety disorders….” The researchers also note that acupuncture has a fast effective action and high compliance. In addition, acupuncture has a relatively minimal risk of side effects compared with drug therapy.
At the Healthcare Medicine Institute (HealthCMi), we promote acupuncture continuing education with acupuncture CEU and acupuncture PDA courses online. Our news division reports the latest in acupuncture and herbal medicine research. Most news is based on modern scientific reports. This recent study stands out because its basis is both in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) classical theory and modern biomedical research.
The researchers note that acupuncture is both safe and effective. A trend towards increased usage of acupuncture for GAD is partially due to the risk of side effects from drug therapy. Benzodiazepines are major anti-anxiety medications but there is a risk vertigo, sleepiness and addiction. SSRIs (serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are also important drugs for anti-anxiety treatments. However, side effects including nausea, irritability, sexual dysfunction, headaches, high blood pressure, dizziness, sweating and digestive disturbances complicate use of these medications.
The researchers note that GAD affects approximately 2 - 4.7% of the population in China and approximately 3% in the USA. GAD impacts work productivity, studies and may lead to suicide. Furthermore, the incidence of GAD is increasing.
The researchers based their conclusion on meta-analyses and biomedically based studies. They also give a detailed Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theoretical and practical analysis of acupuncture for the treatment of anxiety disorders. The conventional scientific evidence demonstrates that acupuncture benefits brain biochemistry and produces significant positive patient outcomes. The TCM analysis details proven methods to achieve clinical results, however, the terminology is less accessible to mainstream doctors than the biomedical evidence.
Newly published research confirms that acupuncture reduces hypertension, high blood pressure. Real acupuncture was found more effective than both a non-acupuncture control and a sham acupuncture control in this new laboratory experiment. As a result of this controlled experiment, the researchers concluded that acupuncture has a “stable antihypertensive effect.”
The researchers investigated the effects of needling acupuncture point KI3 (KD3, K3, Taixi). Interest for this study was based on other recent published research. The researchers note, “Many animal and clinical studies have reported the efficacy of acupuncture in reducing hypertension.”
Standard acupuncture treatments usually involved the application of acupuncture point prescriptions with more than one acupuncture point. This study isolated the effects of a single acupuncture point on laboratory rats with hypertension. The researchers conclude acupuncture at KI3 has an “antihypertensive effect for essential hypertension.”
New research concludes that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of neck injuries. Investigators find acupuncture effective in the restoration of cervical range of motion in cases of damage to the intervertebral discs. Additionally, X-ray findings confirm that acupuncture benefits the cervical spine. Acupuncture significantly restores normal curvature to the neck after injury.
In a controlled rabbit model laboratory experiment, acupuncture restores cervical range of motion that has been impinged by spondylosis, a painful condition of the spine due to disc degeneration. Spondylosis related spinal curvature issues were found to respond with positive results with acupuncture. The study demonstrated that acupuncture effectively restores normal cervical curvature in cases of spondylosis. In addition, some cases demonstrated successful widening of the intervertebral foramen as a result of acupuncture treatments.
A related study of 78 humans concluded that a combination of acupuncture, massage and Chinese herbal medicine “has a significant curative effect on cervical spondylosis, and deserves clinical promotion and application.” This type of combination therapy is common in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) hospitals and clinics. TCM consists of several major clinical application components including acupuncture, herbal medicine, Qi Gong, Tui-Na massage and dietetics.
A recent related study published in China Medicine and Pharmacy posted similar findings. Researchers concluded that acupuncture combined with herbs is effective for the treatment of spondylotic related radiculopathy. Group 1 was tested with acupuncture combined with the herbal decoction Huang Qi jia Gui Zhi Fu Ling Wan. Group 2 received only acupuncture. Both groups improved with clinical reductions of numbness and pain. The acupuncture only group had 15 cured, 18 markedly effective and 11 improved patients. The acupuncture plus herbal medicine group had 22 cured, 20 markedly effective and 7 improved patients.
New research confirms that acupuncture relieves menstrual related cramping and pain. The research concludes that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of dysmenorrhea, painful menstruation often accompanied by abdominal cramps. In addition, the researchers discovered that a special acupuncture needling technique possesses particularly powerful analgesic effects. The study compared even-manual acupuncture needle methods with a technique called Longhu Jiaozhan. The results showed that Longhu Jiaozhan produces stronger analgesic effects than even-manual manipulation of acupuncture needles.
Longhu Jiaozhan is translated as dragon and tiger fighting. Longhu Jiaozhan involves acupuncture needle reinforcing and reducing methods accomplished with alternating applications of nine counterclockwise rotations and six clockwise rotations. The investigators discovered that the dragon and tiger fighting technique produced a greater reduction of pain than the even manipulation technique.
Acupuncture is found more effective than drug therapy for the treatment of neck disc herniations. This disorder is characterized by neck pain, numbness and/or weakness that often radiates towards the hands. Researchers compared electroacupuncture with the medication Meloxicam and discovered that electroacupuncture is more effective in both the short and long-term for the treatment of cervical intervertebral disc herniations.
A total of 420 patients were investigated in this randomized controlled study. An electroacupuncture group was compared with a Meloxicam group. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic and anti-febrile effects. Acupuncture was applied to acupoints GV14 (DU14, Dazhui), UB11 (BL11, Dazhu) and SI3 (Houxi). All participants were screened with strict inclusion and exclusion criteria based on objective testing including standard X-ray findings and CT (computed tomography) scans.
A chief ingredient of a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herb has been shown to regulate genes responsible for tissue growth and differentiation in the periodontal ligament. Researchers note that the ingredient baicalin, found in Huang Qin, shows promise in periodontal ligament cell based therapy. The results were published in the Journal of Periodontology, the official publication of the American Academy of Periodontology.
Periodontitis is a major cause of tooth loss and is characterized by infection and inflammation of the ligaments and bone that support the teeth. Severity of this disorder is partially determined by the quantity of periodontal ligament fibers that have been lost. Baicalin was shown to promote human periodontal ligament cell (HPLC) proliferation and successfully upregulated osteoprotegerin (OPG) mRNA and protein expression. Baicalin also helped protect the HPLC by down-regulating the receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL) mRNA and protein expression. Baicalin was also able to increase core binding factor alpha 1 (Cbfa1) and osteocalin (OC) mRNA and protein expression.
