Acupuncture: The Peripheral Nervous System as the Mode of Efficacy
|Title:||Acupuncture: The Peripheral Nervous System as the Mode of Efficacy|
|Date Issued:||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.|
