פניה לרפואה משלימה

בסקר מקיף שנערך בארה"ב וכלל מעל 30 אלף מרואיינים, נמצא כי

36 אחוז מהמשתתפים מעל גיל 18 פנו לשירותי הרפואה האלטרנטיבית בזמן מחלה.

ומה קורה בישראל?

  • בסקר עם יותר מ- 2000 משתתפים בשנת 1993 ובשנת 2000, נמצא כי בשנים אלה היתה עליה של קרוב ל- 70% במספר הפונים לרפואה משלימה

  • הגישות הטיפוליות הפופולריות ביותר היו הומאופתיה ואקופונקטורה

  • נשים ותושבי ערים גדולות נטו יותר לטיפולים אלטרנטיביים וסה"כ בשנת 2000 דווחו 75% מהמטופלים שהטיפול עזר להם

The history of acupuncture l.jpg
The History of Acupuncture

  • Acupuncture, or needle puncture, is a European term invented by Willem Ten Rhyne, a Dutch physician who visited Nagasaki in Japan in the early part of the seventeenth century.

  • The Chinese describe acupuncture by the character 'Chen', which literally means 'to prick with a needle', a graphic description of this therapeutic technique.


Early history l.jpg
Early History

  • Acupuncture has a clearly recorded history of about 2,000 years, but some authorities claim that it has been practiced in China for some 4,000 years. The Chinese believe that the practice of acupuncture began during the Stone Age when stone knives or sharp edged tools, described by the character 'Bian', were used to puncture and drain abscesses..

Yin yang l.jpg
YIN &YANG

  • The Yellow Emperor said ''The principle of Yin and Yang is the foundation of the entire universe. It underlies everything in creation. It brings about the development of parenthood; it is the root and source of life and death it is found with the temples of the gods In order to treat and cure diseases one must search for their origins.

THEORETICAL EXPLANATIONS FOR ACUPUNCTURE


Gate control theory melzack wall 1965 l.jpg
Gate control theory Melzack &Wall 1965

  • Small diameter nerve fibers carry pain stimuli through a gate but large diameter nerve fibers going through the same gate can inhibit transmission of those pain impulses

  • The brain also appears to influence whether the gate is open or closed


Slide22 l.jpg

Acupuncture excites the pain inhibitory nerve fibers for a short period of time, thereby blocking pain, but the effects of acupuncture can last for some months after the acupuncture needle has been removed, and nothing in the Gate Theory really explains this prolonged effect. Acupuncture is a valuable treatment in a variety of non-painful diseases and the Gate Theory makes no attempt to explain the mechanism of acupuncture in the treatment of these diseases.

Endorphins and Monoamines

ANALGESIA


Endorphins l.jpg
Endorphins

  • Endorphins are released into the nervous system by the action of acupuncture and the effects of acupuncture anaesthesia can be reversed by the use of anti-morphine drugs.

    *From some recent research work it would seem that not all types of acupuncture are blocked by anti-morphines

    *The endorphin theory again only deals with pain and makes little attempt to explain the use and effects of acupuncture in non-painful diseases.


Suggestibility l.jpg
Suggestibility

  • Acupuncture has been criticized for being no more than a complex form of 'hypnotic suggestion'. Available research work shows that those gaining benefit from acupuncture treatment are no more or less suggestible than those for whom acupuncture does not work. It would therefore seem that acupuncture does not depend on suggestibility. At the same time, acupuncture does have a certain amount of 'magic and mystery' surrounding it. Almost certainly this creates a small amount of benefit although it does not fully explain the dramatic and significant therapeutic effects of acupuncture.


Other ideas l.jpg
Other Ideas

  • Some research workers, particularly in Russia, have suggested that fields of biological activity exist around all living objects. The concept of 'biofields' has little hard scientific evidence to support it, but there are people in both Russia and America who are suggesting that acupuncture may work through these 'fields. At present there are no good grounds for accepting or rejecting these theories.

No Real Answer? (Life) energy level before and after acupuncture, massage, raiky, Qi Ging, exercise, polarity, or any other body work

  • The fact of the matter is that acupuncture does work, and has been shown to do so, but the exact answer as to how it works is unclear. The current scientific explanations give a logical and supportable basis for stating that it does have an effect on the nervous system, but it is difficult to draw any more definite conclusions.

  • Both Chinese and European firms has produced small electrical stimulators that allow small amplitude pulsed electrical currents to pass between sets of paired acupuncture needles. In China these electrical machines are used to replace prolonged manual stimulation of acupuncture needle in activities such as acupuncture anaesthesia. In the West electrical stimulation is often used as part of standard acupuncture therapy. The voltage used is small and painless and passed between acupuncture needles that have already been inserted into the skin.

Herbal Remedies experimental 4wall bony defects in dogs

  • Herbal medicine is itself a powerful method of healing. Western drugs often control symptoms, but do not alter the disease process ( antibiotics eliminate bacteria but do not improve a person's resistance to infection; diuretics fid excess fluid without improving kidney function). Chinese herbs treat the underlying condition as defined by traditional diagnosis, and rarely cause unwanted side-effects.
