  • Molecular & Organ View
  • Circular Logic
  • Energetic
  • Linear Logic
  • Mechanistic
science versus art
Science versus Art
  • Over the last 10 years, there has been no change in mean life expectancy in human beings, dog or cats
  • There is an increase in incidence of inflammatory diseases and cancer over our ability to detect the conditions
what s been happening
What’s Been Happening?
  • CAVM Guideline were re-written in a less than supportive manner
  • Medicine has begun to look at itself with greater scrutiny
new findings
New findings
  • The basic dietary recommendations for human beings have been found lacking
  • Atkin’s low-carbohydrate diet is vindicated
obese nation
Obese Nation
  • Recent study showed that being obese is more likely to cause a heart attack than smoking cigarettes
  • We are fat!!!
new findings7
New Findings
  • Study (sham-controlled) showed that surgery on human knees created more damage than corrected, unless there was clear ligament damage
new findings8
New Findings
  • Major multi-center study showed that estrogen replacement put more women at risk for heart disease than it helped at menopause
basic tenets of ap
Based upon the AP point selected

Based upon the method of stimulation

Dry needles

Electrical AP

Aquapuncture

Hemoacupuncture

Based upon the length of stimulation

Low-rate, twisting stimulation of GV26 leads to endorphin response, while high-frequency needling of GV26 leads to epinephrine response

Basic Tenets of AP
effects of acupuncture
Effects of Acupuncture
  • Using manganese-enhanced fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), visual effects can be seen in human and animal neural tissues

Baseline

Mannitol

Mn Infusion

EA GB34

effects of acupuncture11
Effects of Acupuncture
  • Activation of cortex is site specific
  • Leads initially to specific effects

GB34

ST36

effects of acupuncture12
Effects of Acupuncture
  • Activation has temporal effects
  • Longer stimulation activates more cortical structures
  • Leads to broader effects

5 minutes

20 minutes

effects of acupuncture13
Effects of Acupuncture
  • In separate study, analgesic AP points were compared to non-analgesic points
    • Analgesic AP altered brain regions involved in pain modulation
      • PAG, MnR, hypothalamus, thalamus
    • Non-Analgesic AP did not activate same areas
method of stimulation
Method of Stimulation
  • Stimulation of BL-20 (the SP association point) in horses led to analgesia using dry needles or electrical AP.
  • Only EA increased release of endrophins into the blood.
