Acupuncture Beats Drug For Knee Arthritis Relief

Acupuncture combined with moxibustion is more effective for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis than meloxicam (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Researchers from Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine quantified the curative effect of warm needle acupuncture using micro-CT (computed tomography). In the study, acupuncture combined with moxibustion successfully improves the condition of the osteoarthritic knee bone structure. In addition, knee cartilage scores document that acupuncture with moxibustion reduces inflammation and accelerates knee cartilage repair.

It appears that acupuncture is a regenerative therapy by helping to accelerate cartilage repair.

Acupuncture Beats Antihistamines For Allergic Rhinitis

German researchers confirm the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of allergies and sinus disorders. In an eight week clinical trial, patients receiving acupuncture required less medications and had fewer seasonal allergic rhinitis symptoms than control groups. Likewise, quality of life scores were significantly better in the acupuncture group than in either control group. Based on the evidence, the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin researchers conclude that “acupuncture treatment was more effective than the symptomatic drug intervention.”

Acupuncture Relieves Asthma Attacks

Researchers find acupuncture effective for relieving allergic asthma, a type of asthma triggered by allergens (e.g., dust mites, mold, pollen, foods). Symptoms include wheezing, difficulty breathing, itchy eyes, sinusitis, rhinitis, a general feeling of malaise, and sneezing. In a randomized controlled trial of 1,445 patients, acupuncture provided lasting relief for six months.

Acupuncture was provided for a maximum of 15 treatments over a three month period. Patients receiving acupuncture demonstrated significant relief from allergic asthma at all data points, including the six month post-treatment follow-up data point.

Tai Chi More Beneficial than Aerobic Exercise for Fibromyalgia Treatment, Trial Suggests: BMJ

According to Fibromyalgia News, fibromyalgia patients who regularly practice tai chi show greater symptom improvement than those engaged in an aerobic exercise program, results from a clinical trial suggest. The study, “Effect of tai chi versus aerobic exercise for fibromyalgia: comparative effectiveness randomized controlled trial,” was published in the journal BMJ.

Patients with fibromyalgia experience chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep abnormalities, and physical and psychological impairments. There is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, and treatment generally involves a combination of medication, exercise, and cognitive behavioral therapy. The ancient art of tai chi shows once again how East Asian medicine has many things to offer patients who suffer from fibromyalgia and pain in general. Unlike other forms of aerobic exercise the slow rhythmic nature of tai chi can help pain patients and avoid abrupt movements which may aggravate pain. So if you pain please consider tai chi, acupuncture and other natural treatments to reduce pain and enhance flexibility.

Are Medical Marijuana, Acupuncture Alternatives to Opioids?- Tampa Bay Times

After battling Lyme disease and other ailments for nearly 20 years, Bridgitte Pascale tried “almost everything” to alleviate her pain without relying on opioids.

Though doctors prescribed Percocet and muscle relaxers, she turned to acupuncture and later medical marijuana, which she says are the “only things that help” with the chronic aches and pains she manages daily.

Such alternative treatments are emerging as safe havens for some patients concerned about the dangers of painkillers. But while many swear by the benefit, health insurance generally doesn’t cover them.

“It can cost a lot of money,” admits Pascale, a 56-year-old registered nurse who lives in Clearwater. “But it’s the only thing that helps the pain.”

Our country is in a true crisis. Patients are addicted to narcotic medicines in records numbers, and the number of deaths from these powerful drugs increases yearly. In my experience many patients who seek out medical marijuana have found that CBD oil is equally as effective and is without the unwanted side effects of the THC found in marijuana. Adding acupuncture therapy, for many, has shown itself to be very effective in managing pain and leaving the narcotics behind, or using narcotic medicines in small quantities only.

Acupuncture Helps Knee Arthritis Repair

Acupuncture stimulates knee osteoarthritis cartilage repair by regulating proteins TGF-β1 and IGF-1. Beijing University of Traditional Chinese medicine researchers determined that acupuncture accelerates articular cartilage repair in the osteoarthritic knee by inhibiting the overexpression of TGF-β1 and IGF-1. With multiple objective laboratory instruments measuring outcomes, the investigation also reveal that acupuncture smooths the surface of knee cartilage while regulating cell proliferation and differentiation.

In our practice we use many treatments to help with knee arthritis with fantastic results. To learn more about our practice, and to receive more information about acupuncture, nutrition, integrative pain management, and ozone therapy, please contact the acupuncture and integrative medicine practice of Dr. Scott Denny with practice locations in Davie and Pompano  Beach, Florida.

Is Marijuana Addictive? NutritionFacts.org

The evidence clearly indicates that long-term marijuana use can lead to addiction, but are there negative consequences?

It would appear that a certain percentage of patients do become addicted. It also appears that this addiction is facilitated by the THC content of the marijuana.

Based on my experience high quality CBD oil is the best option. Patients do not report any unwanted side effects, it helps their pain, anxiety, and inflammation. Here is your link to the video:
