New Study Supports New Type of Acupuncture as Arthritis Treatment

Acupuncture, the ancient treatment used to remedy a laundry list of conditions, was recently put to the test in 63 patients with Rheumatoid arthritis.

In this study of 63 subjects, the volunteers were split into 2 groups. One received traditional acupuncture while the other received a form of acupuncture where small electrical currents flow through the needles.

After 10 treatments, the researchers looked at the blood of the volunteers to investigate changes in inflammatory markers. They found that electroacupuncture was effective as lowering two key contributors to RA, known as TNF-? and VEGF, compared to standard acupuncture.

  1. That’s because the electric current/voltage, however small, is still large enough to kill the parasites and associated microbes responsible for most RA cases. The swedish where also having an above 80% success rate in curing breast cancers in the 1960′s by inserting a needle directly into the tumor and electrifying it with very small currents. The research funding was promply pulled from that by big pharma pawns. Surprise, surprise!!

  2. No needles for this cat, thank-you very much.

  3. It seems to me that this would hurt. So, since I am in enough pain, I am going to let someone else try it our first.

  4. If it's low it doesn't hurt . but if the volume is turned up , You must tell the therapist the comfortable level. you can tolerate. works very well.

  5. IN RESPONSE TO THE POST COPIED HEREIN……

    This sort of rhetoric is inflammatory and very likely false. The blame game…..there’s always a conspiracy….please! If as you say, 50 years ago the Swedes (not Swedish) were utilizing electric shock for breast tumors, and further that it worked…….do you seriously believe that the science behind was shelved and thousands upon thousands of women died because of that? Come on! We all get that the Pharma companies are in it for the money, but not all the scientists behind these theories are going to remain silent! A company has to be profitable to survive. These companies employ hundreds of thousand of Scientists, Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals that work tirelessly in search of cures for diseases. Research & development…no one EVER wants that to stop! It has to be paid for.

  6. This is good treatment and I believe it so..

  7. A Qlaser does the same thing without the needle.

  8. You should also take1 protandim pill /day it's all natural. go to http://www.lifevantage.com/purityplus or call 586-945-0067.

  9. Over the years I have used Acupuncture for various conditions and Injuries and can vouch for its effectiveness, however, I’ve never thought of it as a treatment for Arthritis. There are a lot of these kinds of treatment from Chinese Medicine and by virtue of the fact that they have been practiced and have been working for more than six thousand years is a testament to their effectiveness. Modern Medicine has taken some of these treatments and made them into hand held electronic devices that give almost instant relief for many maladies.

  10. I haven't tried this yet. Someday God-willing I'll try it also.

  11. Acupuncture made a believer out of me. Tried it out for my dog. She actually could walk normal so we would get her treated about every 4-6 weeks.

  12. My wife was diagnosed with RA back in 1976 and she had Acupuncture, Homeopathy and she has not had RA since then…we then studied EAV and Traditional Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Herbs and my wife has traeted 1000s of patients with many conditions for nearly 30 years. We also use Dr Hulda Clark Zappers and supply them to many people. You can read Christines testimony on the http://www.zappertek.com site and an article I wrote back in 1998 for a British magazine called Positive Health on Light and its application in Acupuncture. It is possible that a bacteria known as helicobacter pylori is implicated in RA and manages to get into the synovial fluid in the joints, causing pain and destruction.

    Bless you David.
