Acupuncture for Hypertension

| May 2, 2015

Doctors and scientists from

University of California Irvine have recently discovered a new method of lowering blood pressure. This method is based on electroacupuncture, which seems to have the necessary effect in lowering blood pressure. The method was tested on rats by inducing electrical stimulation reduced in front of their feet, and their blood pressure after treatment was 40 percent lower than before (blood pressure artificially increased before). This opens new doors for treating high blood pressure, perhaps even replace traditional medical treatments with this ancient method.

These are all methods that have been tested: Needles were inserted into

-pericardium 5-6, and were rotated substantially all the 10 to thirty minutes. While this procedure was performed, blood pressure was high physicians rats. -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, changes in blood pressure were continuously monitored, and the results carefully recorded. The biggest success in lowering blood pressure tests were involved manual and electrical acupuncture, which had serious effects in lowering blood pressure, lasting up to an hour, and ranging from 33-36 percent. The best results were recorded in rats that were stimulated by electroacupuncture, especially at those treated with electroacupuncture frequency of 2 hertz.

However, the best results were recorded at the rats stimulated heart (6-7) and stomach (36-37). Blood pressure was reduced to 44 percent for 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, has no effect on healthy people. It can only

That these treatments involving acupuncture will soon be available to everyone, because it is a great way to reduce blood pressure
