How does acupuncture work?
“This is a question that’s been mystifying scientists for the last 50 years. We know that acupuncture works. We can see through testing that it regulates the endogenous hormone, that it changes endocrine activity, it changes activity in the nervous system. It changes brain wave patterns. It actually modulates the immune system. but how it works, we’re not quite sure. In traditional Chinese medicine, which is the medical system that acupuncture comes from, we believe that there’s a flow of electromagnetic activity in the body that acts as a second nervous system.
Instantaneous Changes Seen With Acupuncture
Acupuncture is simply inserting needles into specific points in the body that changes the activity in that nervous system on a holistic level. So we see instantaneous changes in the immune system, hormonal activity, brain wave function, and the nervous system immediately. Simply placing the needles in various specific spots in the body. Acupuncture works to change the immune system, the nervous system, brainwave activity, blood flow. How acupuncture works, and conventional medicine is still a mystery. But what we do know is that it’s a safe, effective treatment for fertility, pregnancy, and childbirth.”
