If you’re been diagnosed with high blood pressure, chances are your doctor has pushed you pretty hard to take medications.
But what if I told you that there is procedure, practiced by doctors from other parts of the world that cause no side effects, is permanent and even more effective than prescription drugs?
And although the technique originated in China, it’s now widely available everywhere.
In a case study, recently published in Acupuncture in Medicine, a 56 year old man with high blood pressure of 160/100 mm Hg was treated with medications to bring it down to 150/99 mm Hg. But when acupuncture was added to the treatment regime, something surprising happened!
The blood pressure astoundingly dropped to 130/80 mm Hg.
Did you notice that the blood pressure actually dropped more when acupuncture was added than when adding the medications?
A research team from Shenzhen Futian Hospital of TCM, Shenzhen, China backed this up. They investigated the effects of real acupuncture versus a placebo procedure on subjects in a controlled experiment. The results confirmed that “real acupuncture” is indeed more effective than “pretended acupuncture” and has a stable antihypertensive effect.
Another study conducted in University of California investigated the effects of administering acupuncture at specific points and combined it with electro-acupuncture.
They found that acupuncture reduced high blood pressure considerably and the entire treatment procedure helped protect the heart tissues and reduced arrhythmia, a condition that causes irregular heartbeats.
In essence, acupuncture helps fight high blood pressure, works effectively in combination with medications, reduces the side effects of the medications and protects body tissues from damage due to hypertension. All these effects have been proved with the help of cortical and biochemical assays.
