Acupuncture has been shown to trigger reactions in the body

Acupuncture is a healing method from China that is more than 2500 years old. The method uses needles to stimulate nerve points in the body. The needles stimulate the nerve tracts and thereby set various biochemical processes in motion.These trigger processes that can alleviate the pain. Scientists have been able to demonstrate positive effects in clinical tests. Scientists have not yet been able to conclusively prove which mechanisms in the body trigger the effect.

 

That’s why we have to talk about it:

 

The effect was long doubted, today we know better

Researchers have been studying the effects of acupuncture intensively for more than 60 years. In the past 20 years, scientists have published more than 13,000 studies exploring acupuncture.A large part of the research comes from China. An accusation that many studies that come from the country of origin of the healing process are influenced by the state has not yet been proven. A meta-analysis of the study situation there did not show any major differences compared to studies from the USA .

The study situation is clear

So far, scientists worldwide have clinically proven a positive effect for a total of eight diseases and complaints . Acupuncture is especially helpful for chronic pain such as lower back pain, migraines or headaches. In the treatment of ailments such as migraines, the method is not only used acutely, but also preventively. Postoperative or chemotherapy-dependent nausea and vomiting can also be treated with the method.


The researchers were able to determine a possible positive effect on a further 38 diseases and complaints . Acupuncture can probably help with neck or shoulder pain, but also with conditions such as adult asthma, obesity and insomnia. These results are based on survey studies. Overall, acupuncture mostly only treats symptoms and not the causes of the illness .

However, medical professionals have found that the nerve points do not necessarily have to be hit in order to have an effect. Even when areas near the points are stimulated, effects could be observed for most of the complaints.

There have been numerous clinical trials testing the efficacy of Acupuncture like this one https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3103692/ that clearly shows significant improvements for patients.
