Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method to treat diseases and relieve pain.We have conducted a series of studies to examine the mechanisms of this ancient method for pain relief.This article reviews some of our major findings.Our studies showed that acupuncture produces analgesic effect and that electroacupuncture (EA) is more effective than manual acupuncture. results for this questionCan electroacupuncture cause hyperlipidemia?Can electroacupuncture cause hyperlipidemia?The researchers conclude that electroacupuncture at ST40 downregulates plasma total cholesterol,LDL cholesterol and proinflammatory macrophages in cases of hyperlipidemia.A related laboratory experiment reveals similar findings.Acupuncture Lowers High Cholesterol - HealthCMi results for this questionFeedbackThe effect and mechanism of electroacupuncture at LI11 and Jun 01,2016·Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine,5-HT) plays an important role in colonic motility; however it is unknown whether alterations in colonic 5-HT are associated with EA.In this study,the effect and mechanism of EA at acupuncture points LI11 and ST37 were examined using a cold saline-induced rat model of constipation.
·We will examine these mechanisms in the treatment of CLBP by electroacupuncture (EA).We present the aims and methods of a placebo-controlled,participant-blinded and assessor-blinded mechanistic study.Adult patients with CLBP will be randomized to receiving 16 sessions of real (active) or sham (placebo) EA over the course of 8 weeks.Cited by 3Publish Year 2020Author Man-Man Wang,Min Zhang,Ya-Shuo Feng,Ying Xing,Zi-Xuan Tan,Wen-Bin Li,Fang Dong,Feng ZhangEffect of Electroacupuncture at Zusanli (ST36) on Sepsis However,its detailed mechanism and whether acupuncture at LI11 and ST25 have similar effects to ST36 remain unclear.To explore the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) at ST36,LI11,and ST25 on septic rats and investigate the role of the spleen in the treatment of EA at ST36.Cited by 4Publish Year 2018Author Jiang-Ti Kong,Brandon MacIsaac,Ruti Cogan,Amanda Ng,Christine Sze Wan Law,Joseph Helms,Rosa Sc12345Next
Jun 21,2017·The aim of this study was to determine whether electroacupuncture (EA) at LI11 promotes jejunal motility,whether the parasympathetic pathway participates in this effect,and if so,which somatic afferent nerve fibres are involved.A manometric balloon wasCited by 59Publish Year 2016Author Xianwei Zhu,Zhibin Liu,Hongyan Qu,Wenmin Niu,Li Gao,Yuan Wang,Aimin Zhang,Lu BaiThe Effect and Mechanism of Electroacupuncture at Li11 and Background Electroacupuncture (EA) is used clinically for the treatment of constipation.Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine,5-HT) plays an important role in coloniCited by 59Publish Year 2016Author Xianwei Zhu,Zhibin Liu,Hongyan Qu,Wenmin Niu,Li Gao,Yuan Wang,Aimin Zhang,Lu BaiThe Effect and Mechanism of Electroacupuncture at Li11 and The Effect and Mechanism of Electroacupuncture at Li11 and St37 on Constipation in a Rat Model.

from basic research regarding the use of LI11 in acu-puncture is needed.We hypothesized that the immediate effect of EA stimulation at LI11 would be promoting jejunal motility,primarily by exciting parasympathetic pathways and inhibiting sympathetic pathways.Methods Animals Male Sprague-Dawley rats (180230 g; Model AnimalOrexin Receptor-1 in the Rostral Ventrolateral Medulla Electroacupuncture (EA) has been used to treat numerous diseases,including hypertension.This study aimed to investigate the long-term effect and underlying mechanisms of EA stimulation at the LI11 point on the hypertension and sympathetic nerve activity inPeople also askHow is electroacupuncture used in the treatment of cancer?How is electroacupuncture used in the treatment of cancer?Electroacupuncture inhibits inflammatory,neuropathic,cancer,and visceral pain in various animal models.CFA = complete Freunds adjuvant.Mechanisms of AcupunctureElectroacupuncture on Persistent
In addition,TPH and 5-HT expression were both increased by EA at LI11 and/or ST37 (p<0.05).There were no significant differences between the three EA groups for any outcomes.Conclusions EA at LI11 and/or ST37 had a positive effect on objective markers of constipation in a rat model.In addition,EA increased 5-HT and TPH in the colonic tissues.
