Toowoomba Acupuncturist Suggests Scalp Acupuncture May Help the Symptoms of

Multiple Sclerosis

Scalp Acupuncture for Multiple Sclerosis in Toowoomba

A new scalp acupuncture clinical case study concludes that acupuncture may reduce the symptoms in patients with multiple sclerosis.  The study finds that acupuncture relieves the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, increases the patient’s quality of life, slows the progression of physical disability and reduces the frequency of relapses.

Scalp acupuncture was applied to several standard scalp zones: motor, sensory, foot motor and sensory, balance, hearing, dizziness, tremor. Acupuncture was applied once a week for the first ten weeks followed by once a month for the next six treatments. The patient in the study had multiple sclerosis (MS) for 20 years.

After the application of 16 acupuncture treatments, standing and walking improved significantly. There was also a marked reduction in numbness and tingling in the limbs. Overall, the patient showed increased energy levels and reported less dizziness. The patient’s condition went into remission after the acupuncture treatments. At the time the research was published, the patient had been in remission for 26 months.

The original article “Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis with Chinese Scalp Acupuncture” was published in Global Advances in Health and Medicine 2.1 (2013): 8-13. The authors were Hao, Jason Jishun, et al.


Acupuncture Helps Presidential-Hopeful Mitt Romney’s Wife Overcome Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Former USA presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has ties to Monsanto that go back to the late 1970’s when GE crops were still in the R&D phase. However, he reportedly makes sure his own meals are nothing but organic. According to Peter Alexander of MSN Today: “On Romney Air, or Hair Force One – as Reuters’ Steve Holland likes to call it – Mitt Romney has his own galley in ‘forward cabin.’ And, while I’ve never been invited up front, sources close to the campaign tell me the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of healthy fare. Kashi cereals, hummus, pita, as well as organic apple sauce.

Everything’s organic, I’m told, including the ingredients to Romney’s favorite, peanut butter and honey sandwiches.”

Even more interesting, in a 2002 article about Romney’s wife, Ann, she credits a combination of organic foods and holistic medicine including Acupuncture for turning her health around after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998. The profile reads in part: “…She was 49 at the time, and the disease was progressing rapidly, she says, prompting the doctors to put her on steroids, which made her so sick she could barely get out of bed. ‘They were killing me,’ she says of the treatment. ‘You have bone loss; they are so bad for you.’

Mrs. Romney was introduced to several practitioners of holistic medicine, who persuaded her to adopt alternative therapies. She now eats organic foods and very little meat. She practices reflexology and undergoes acupuncture treatments. She credits the lifestyle with turning her health around… ‘Everyone has to find their own way,’ she says. ‘Three years ago I was really, really sick and not able to function at all. A lot of the symptoms are [now] gone…'”

A pilot study carried out in Brail provides evidence that electro-acupuncture (EA) can significantly improve quality of life for patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Thirty-one RRMS patients undergoing treatment with immunomodulators were randomly distributed into experimental and placebo groups, which received either true EA (TEA) or sham EA (SEA) once a week for 30 minutes per session, over six consecutive months. A single treatment protocol was developed for all patients, using acupuncture points reported to stimulate the immune system.

For the experimental group, needles were inserted bilaterally at acupoints Zusanli ST-36, Sanyinjiao SP-6, Hegu L.I.-4 and Quchi L.I.-11, with a ninth needle inserted at Yintang N-HN-3. In the SEA group, needle insertion was superficial, located one centimetre away from the points used for the TEA group and no electrical stimulation was given.

TEA was found to enhance various aspects of patients’ quality of life, including a significant reduction in subjective pain and depression scores. In addition participants in the TEA group reported improvements such as better sleep and appetite, reduced incontinence and constipation, and disappearance of leg spasms during treatment.

Accupuncture, Acupunture or Accupunture common misspelling

Note that “Acupuncture” is often misspelt as accupuncture, acupunture or accupunture, that is with either too many c’s or not enough c’s. I would love to be able to clear up this very common spelling mistake, and set the record straight.

Ac·u·punc·ture – pronounced ak-yoo-puhngk-cher; Origin: 1675–85; < Latin acū with a needle (ablative of acus  needle) or acu- (as combining form of acus ) + puncture.
