Thousand years ago, the Chinese had already discovered how to make use of Chinese herbs to balance the body Yin & Yang system and the use of needles on the body to eliminate pain and cure diseases to perfect health. In 1963, a roundstone needle, which is determined as the primitive tool for acupuncture therapy, was unearthed in the relics of the Neolithic Age at Toudaowa, Dolun Banner, and Inner Mongolia. Therefore, the origin of Bianshi can be traced back to the Neolithic Age, which was four to ten thousand years ago.
The cumulative clinical experience on human being and the time-tested theories constitute the most comprehensive medical system. The application of acupuncture treatment consists of using needle to stimulate the acupoints and using moxibustion on the superficial area, to re-activate the body function, growth and to influence the internal organs to perform self-healing.
It remains the world’s oldest, safest treatment that has no side effect and does not disrupt the body physiological function. Therefore the international medical fraternity had increasingly treasured acupuncture.
The Important Effect of Acupuncture in Regulating the Immunology Function
Moxibustion on the kidney point of rat everyday for 30 minutes for 7 consecutive days could remarkably overcome epidemic haemorrhage fever virus (EHFV), as well as increase the function of cytophagy in the abdominal cavity of the rat.
Experiment on lymphocyte function shown that, rats being treated with moxibustion, are observed to have higher reproduction reaction of their spleen cells, which help induce Con A and IL2 in normal rat and the ones that had inflammation – infected rat. This proved that moxibustion increases the cellular immunity and improve the function of anti-inflammation.
In a case study, involving the use of Chinese herbs such as Fu-Zi (aconite root), Rou-Gui (cinnamon bark), Hong-Hua (safflower) etc and made into a “cake”, placed on acupoints Zhongwan (Ren 12), Qihai (Ren 6), Zusanli (St 36), Tienshu (St 25), Dachangshu (Ub 25) etc to treat 41 cases of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The total effective rate was 92.4% effectively higher than the corresponding groups in the western medicine, of which the total effective rate, was 62.5%.
This explains how indirect moxibustion with Chinese herbs could regulate the T cell subclassification and the immunology function. This treatment guides and adjusts the immunology function of the IBS patient effectively.
A Japanese scholar, Mr Xiao Yuan Zao Er, did a research on 12 elderly people age between 66-92. He selected acupoints Zhongwan (Ren 12), Tienshu (St 25), Guanyuan (Ren 4), Hegu (Li 4), Zusanli (St 36), Sanyinjiao (Sp 6), Feishu (Ub 13), Ganshu (Ub 18), Pishu (Ub 20), Shenshu (Ub 23) etc. and performed acupuncture treatment twice a week for 2 months. The result was lymphocyte CD3, CD4 and CD4/CD8 appeared to increase significantly.
Research was done on malignant tumor patients with low cellular immunity. As a major means of effective therapy, radiation and chemotherapy not only destroy malignant tumor cells; it severely damaged the normal cells at the same time. Thus, it further reduces the body immunity system. After radiation and chemotherapy, CD2, CD4 had decreased, CD8 normal, CD4/CD8 declined.
Needling on acupoints Quchi (Li 11), Hegu (Li 4), Zusanli (St 36) etc increased CD2, CD4. No effect on CD8. As a result, improving CD4/CD8 disorder, hence, enhance the immunity of the cell.
Cancerous patients were given moxibustion on Dazhui (Du 14), Feishu (Ub 13), and Pishu (Ub 20) twice a week, each time 3 zhuang (direct-moxa). One month later, it was found that the T-cell and T cell subclassification do not have significant changes. However, the ratio of the T-inhibit/killer cells had increased significantly.
Malignant tumor patients have a decline of T cell subclassification, IL-2 (Interleukin-2) and high number of inactive Natural killer cell. After needling, results revealed significant improvement and regulating T-lymphocyte and T cell subclassification, and enhance the IL-2 and natural killer cell activity.
Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) level in serum dropped significantly, this shown that needling can intensely stop the manifestation of the TNF in blood. Thus, reducing the danger of pathology changes of TNF, which occurred after the acute cerebral infarction. Therefore needling had double effects of preventing further development of thrombus, which in turn provide protection of the brain.
Needling on specific acupoint could significantly enhance the immunity adhesion activity of red cells organism even after 24hrs. By using wheat-seed moxibustion (mai li jiu direct moxa) once a day for 15 treatments, could significantly increase the red blood cell C3b and cell IC Rossette formation rate. Moxibustion therefore has been recommended and is an important practice to regulate immunity and for anti-aging.
Rat that has been given indirect moxibustion with salt on acupoint Shenque (Ren 8), has seen an increase in Natural killer cell activity (NK). This method was repeated within 48 hour before the Natural killer cell activity (NK) starts to decline to prevent lapse of NK activity and sustaining it at a much higher level.
As in the case of asthmatic patient, the value of T cell Subclassification, CD3, CD4, CD4/CD8 not only declined but also led to lower NK cell activity. By adopting ” ge jiang jiu shenque ” (indirect moxibustion with ginger) once a day for 30 days consecutively, it was noticed that both the value of CD3, CD4, CD4/CD8 and NK cell activity had risen in varied degrees.
In the case of healthy person, by having acupuncture on Shangjuxu (St.37) for 12 consecutive days, it had shown that both serum Immunoglobulin G (IgG) and Immunoglobulin A (IgA) had increased comparatively prior to needling session.
Among them, IgG had enhanced significantly vis-a-vis Ig A. However IgM do not have any changes fundamentally. For a normal person, having needling on acupoints such as Zusanli (St 36), Dazhui (Du 14), Tienshu (St 25), Quchi (Li 11) etc. Their Immunoglobulin had increased within 3 days and was maintained at the same level for more than 12 days.
Needling on acupoint Hegu (Li 4) on a healthy person has successfully induced interferons (IFN) while moxibustion bring out the effect of interferon¡¯s and has up to 8 hrs of effectiveness in antigen carrier of no symptom hepatitis B Virus (HBV).
Research has proven that acupuncture can effectively induce IFN against Newcastle disease virus (NDV.)
In another word, under the condition of viral infections, acupuncture could further enhance the effects of anti-virus mechanism effectively. It has shown that while applying the enhancement induction effect on the IFN of the rat¡¯s, moxibustion is stronger than needling. Both weak stimulation and strong stimulation could further enhance the induction effect of rat¡¯s IFN. However, weak stimulation seems to produce better results.
