Item Summary

Title: Acupuncture: The Peripheral Nervous System as the Mode of Efficacy
Authors: Kama, William
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: The functional pathway of acupuncture is still undetermined. Proposed: that the peripheral nervous system is the route of efficacy. Previous studies have conclusively proven that the hypothalamus can be directly stimulated by an electrical mode. Additional research establishes visceral and systemic gastro-intestinal changes through dermatome stimulation. Needling an acupuncture point distal to the hypothalamus, growth and maturation onset data is analyzed to ascertain hypothalamus involvement.
