Lowering the blood pressure with the help of acupuncture
by Grojan Fabiola
Doctors and scientists from the Irvine
university of California have recently discovered a new method of
lowering blood pressure. This method is based on electroacupuncture,
which seems to have a significant effect in lowering blood pressure. The
method has been tested on rats, by inducing low electric stimulation at
the front of their legs, and their blood's pressure after the treatment
was 40 percent lower than before (their blood pressure had been
artificially increased before). This opens new doors for hypertension
treatment, maybe it will even replace the traditional medical treatments
with this ancient method.
These are all the methods that were
Needles were inserted into:
-pericardium 5-6, and they were rotated
every 10 to thirty minutes. While this procedure was performed, the
rats' blood pressure was being raised by doctors.
-the rats' forelimbs, without any
stimulation or twist, for 30 minutes.
Also, the pericardium 5-6 was
electrically stimulated with frequencies ranging from 2 to 100 hertz.
During these tests the changes in blood
pressure were continuously monitored, and the results carefully
recorded. The most successful in lowering blood pressure were those
tests which involved manual and electrical acupuncture, which had
serious effects in lowering blood pressure, lasting up to one hour, and
ranging from 33 to 36 percent. The best results were recorded at the
rats which had been stimulated by electroacupuncture, especially at
those treated at the electroacupuncture frequency of 2 hertz.
However, the best results were recorded
at the rats stimulated at the heart (6-7) and stomach (36-37). Their
blood pressure was lowered up to 44 percent for the heart stimulation,
and 36 percent for the stomach.
An important observation that doctors
made was that this electroacupuncture treatment can only lower blood
pressure for the hypertensive people, it has no effect for healthy
We can only that these treatments
involving acupuncture will soon be available to everyone, because they
represent a very good way to lower blood pressure.
