A new laboratory experiment reveals that acupuncture regulates steroid hormones to reduce biochemical reactions to stress. Acupuncture upregulates hormones in some areas while downregulating in other areas to maintain balance within the body when it is exposed to stress. Western blot analysis confirmed behavioral testing that acupuncture biochemically reduces stress reactions. The researchers discovered that acupuncture reduces stress by regulating glucocorticoid receptor (GR) protein expression. Acupuncture simultaneously upregulated GR protein expression in the hippocampus, hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and pituitary gland while decreasing expression in...

An important new acupuncture study from the Department of Nuclear Medicine at Peking University Shenzhen Hospital successfully measured improvements in blood flow to the heart for patients with coronary heart disease (CHD).

Acupuncture successfully increased “blood perfusion of ischemic myocardium.” Coronary heart disease is due to plaque build-up in the walls of the coronary arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis. This build-up can narrow the coronary arteries and lead to a...
