Donald Liebell
Background: Loss of the sense of smell, from both known and unknown causes, can be refractory to medical intervention. Cases unrelated to head trauma or infection might be ignored or assumed to be untreatable. Case: A 20-year-old male had lifelong anosmia. This patient received a single session of 3-phase auricular therapy (3PAT), including electrical stimulation and insertion of 3-mm, semipermanent ear acupuncture needles, covered by surgical tape and adhesive. Results: Approximately 1 month following insertion of the acupuncture needles, the patient acquired a sense of smell, which had always been absent...

Objective: Three Omega points on the human auricle were first described by Paul Nogier, MD, of France. Each Omega point theoretically represents a different embryologic tissue layer, with a correspondence to specific physical body attributes and certain emotional developments. Maurice Verdun, MD, and René J. Bourdiol, MD, developed the use of distinguishable anthropobiometric parameters and specific psychologic tests to classify a large clinical population into 4 categories that have both somatic and emotional features...

Background: A natural-killer (NK) cell is a cytotoxic lymphocyte that responds to tumor formation. Electroacupuncture (EA) in patients with cancer, who had chemotherapy, enabled them to maintain their T-cell counts (CD3+, CD4+, and CD8+) and NK-cell activity. Objective: To evaluate NK-cell levels and tumor sizes in patients with cervical squamous-cell carcinoma (SCC) after EA on ST 36 ( Zusanli ). Design: This study was a randomized, experimental clinical study with a pre-post-test, control group design. Setting The study was performed in the obstetrics and gynecology department, Gynecology Oncology Division of the Rumah Sakit Dokter Soetomo General Hospital, in Surabaya, Jawa Timur, Indonesia, conducted from February 2016 until May 2016...

Objective: The Systematic Classic / Zhen Jiu Jia Yi Jing ( ZJJYJ , ) is considered to be the first complete acupuncture manual to detail the location and meridian assignations of 349 acupuncture points. Despite numerous transcriptions and editing changes, many traditional acupuncturists adhere to the classics and rarely question their validity. However, ushering the use of acupuncture into the modern era requires examining acupuncture point locations objectively by comparing contemporary anatomical knowledge with classical texts...

The Extraordinary Channels are suited for treating imbalances that occur prior to the development of the 5-phases. After the Chong, Du, Ren, and Dai Mai establish the body's energetic framework, subsequent disturbances are often mediated through the Second Ancestry Yin/Yang Wei and Qiao Mai channels. In this article, the author explores a method of using these channels through the lens of a non-dual therapeutic relationship.

Objective: Huang Fu Mi's Zhen Jiu Jia Yi Jing ( ZJJYJ ) is regarded as the earliest text (282 ce) on differential diagnosis and clinical acumoxa therapy in Chinese Medicine. Are contemporary manual acupuncture practices consistent with those reported in the ZJJYJ? The aim of this research was to investigate if modern manual acupuncture uses reported in research are consistent with classical practices reported in the ZJJYJ. Materials and Methods: A database search of human research studies from 1995 to 2016 was performed for all 270 acupoints for all 8 leg/body channels...

Objective: The curative effect of pneumatic pulsatile cupping on pain has been shown. This study was conducted to investigate effects of the pulsating frequency of pneumatic pulsatile cupping, compared with traditional cupping (TC), on body pain and quality of life (QoL) in people with suboptimal health status (SHS). Materials and Methods: Ninety-six participants with SHS were randomized to low-frequency (LF; n  = 24) or high-frequency (HF; n  = 24) pulsating cupping, traditional cupping (TC; n  = 24), or wait-list (WL; n  = 24) groups...

Selfi Handayani, Bambang Purwanto, Koosnadi Saputra, Didik G Tamtomo
Objective: Previous studies have demonstrated that laserpuncture has a positive effect on longitudinal bone growth within varying parameters. The current authors hypothesized that laserpuncture affects serum concentration of insulinlike growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a growth factor that influences growth plates, and ghrelin, a growth hormone (GH) secretagogue. The goal of this research was to investigate if laserpuncture could increase serum concentrations of IGF-1 and ghrelin in adolescent rats. Materials and Methods: This was an experimental study with a post-test only and a controlled group design...

Argyro Fassoulaki, Andeia Paraskeva, Athanasia Tsaroucha
Objective: Acupressure applied on the Extra-1 ( Yintang ) point decreases bispectral index (BIS) values and stress in healthy volunteers. The current authors hypothesized that acupressure and/or acupuncture could alter regional cerebral oxygenation as expressed by middle cerebral-artery velocity. This study was conducted to test that hypothesis. Materials and Methods: After giving written informed consent, healthy volunteers received, randomly, (1) acupressure on the Extra-1 ( Yintang ) point, (2) acupressure on a sham point lying 2 cm over the lateral end of the right eyebrow, (3) no acupressure, or (4) modified manual acupuncture on the Extra-1 ( Yintang ) point...

Objective: The detection of auricular acupuncture (AA) points by measuring electrical skin resistance (ESR) is often used in diagnostics and therapy; however, systematic investigations of ESR in AA points are rare. The aim of this study was to examine the frequency of detection of AA points with reduced ESR in patients scheduled for unilateral hip arthroplasty. Materials and Methods: Data were obtained from 2 prospective clinical trials, which studied the perioperative analgesic effects of AA in patients with unilateral degenerative hip osteoarthritis...

Objective: The use of complementary and integrative health (CIH) modalities continues to increase; yet, there is limited instruction in these methods in undergraduate medical-school curricula. The objective of this research was to evaluate interest in developing a CIH curriculum at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS), in Bethesda, MD. Materials and Methods: Students and faculty of the USUHS were emailed a 10-question online survey and responded via a Likert scale and open-ended questions...
