									Traditional Acupuncture

Traditional Acupuncture enters the 21st Century with New Scientifiic Research

Five years ago, my blood pressure problem became really stubborn and
unmanageable. I reacted by doing everything right - I stuck to a low-fat
and low sodium diet, I ran a mile daily, and I took my hypertension
medication right on the dot every day. It didn't really do me any good;
when my blood pressure remained high for a long time, my doctor
recommended trying adding two more kinds of medication to my prescription.
That's when I decided to opt out, and should go alternative. I had always
wondered about traditional acupuncture and how it was a lot of help with
stubborn health problems that seem to come on for no reason. So I made
my appointment with a highly-recommended traditional acupuncture therapist.

Each acupuncture session lasted no more than a half hour; and it brought
my pressure down by 40 points. I was on top of the world. Not only was
acupuncture working for me, this was side-effect free alternative therapy - it
was doing so in a way my health insurance plan actually paid for. Most
regular doctors don't look to acupuncture for anything other than a desperate
last ditch attempt, to be tried only when all other plans fail. But this is
beginning to change. Acupuncture is just about the best that alternative
medicine has to offer; and doctors are beginning to accept this more and
more each passing year.The acceptance doesn't come for no reason though.
There have been many scientific studies done on it now, and they've found
effective treatments here for just about every troublesome problem you may
have that conventional medicine has been no help with.

More mainstream hospitals today offer traditional acupuncture than ever
before - the number has actually doubled over the past five years. Even
Harvard Medical School offers acupuncture on its medical courses. Doctors
want nothing more than to learn acupuncture now; and once they do, will
refer a patient for acupuncture therapy much more quickly than they ever
did before. If you are one of those people who just don't trust the
pharmaceutical industry anymore, acupuncture could be your best bet. Since
acupuncture is kind of still on the periphery, it happens to cost a lot less
than traditional drug therapy. A visit to a doctor could cost you $200; a
visitor acupuncturist in city back perhaps $50. Employers everywhere love
this.

Still, acupuncture is not without its problems. Skeptics are always trying to
see if it's been tested deeply enough. But according to the National
Institutes of Health, acupuncture is about the first alternative therapy that's
been really studied to modern scientific standards. Perhaps their skepticism
comes from the way earlier research into acupuncture was done 30 years
ago; the methods they had back then wasn't as conclusive as modern
research. For instance, all medical research has always included testing
against placebos. When your treatment uses no medicines as such and
depends on needles and inner enegies though, how do you design an
effective placebo? And acupuncture doesn't always work well alone. When
you wish to treat for problems like drug addiction, it works best in
conjunction with Western medicine.

But for all kinds of pain-related conditions, or for conditions like the nausea
that comes from having been in surgery, traditional acupuncture works
wonderfully. Traditional acupuncture is going high-tech now though. They
have electroacupuncture machines that do the trick with low degrees of
electric shocking. This actually is quite encouraging. There is actual current
research into this science to help bring it into the 21st century. When
traditional knowledge alone helps as much as it does, there is no telling
what it can do once real progress is made with new research. Acupuncture
does its magic by stimulating nerve junctions around the body to affect how
the central nervous system regulates blood circulation and pain mechanisms.
The more, conventional doctors learn to see acupuncture as a great form of
complementary medicine, the more quickly we will progress in finding new
and effective ways of treating stubborn millennia-old health problems.
