'Blending an ancient medical approach of mind and body with modern health'


Acupuncture Research






We would like to share with you our personal view, beliefs and approach about the research that is presented on these pages.

We both value the research of modern science and the many developments that have been discovered.

We also value the depth of wisdom and knowledge of traditional and classical five element acupuncture, which integrates the many aspects of body and mind.

We acknowledge the information gained from research, and we endevaour to use it where appropriate when meeting the needs of an individual who is suffering in health.

We hope later to share more information on the five elements of acupuncture.

(2017) Immune Modulation and Treatment of Human Papilloma Virus-Related Warts with Energetics of Living Systems Acupuncture

'Methods: Eighteen patients with persistent warts were recruited for the study; 9 received acupuncture treatment and 9 received placebo. Each patient was treated 4 times.

Results: Clinical success was defined as total clearance of all lesions with no recurrence for 3 months. In the treatment group, clinical success was 36.6% versus 0% in the placebo group. In the treatment group, the level of interleukin (IL)–10 decreased. In a comparison of patients with cleared warts and overall patients with nonresponding warts, different expression levels of IL-8, IL-10, tumor necrosis factor–a, IL-6, and interferon-c were found, although these differences were not always statistically significant. Trends of differences (not significant) were observed in leukocyte levels. Acupuncture eliminated persistent warts in some of the patients, along with inducing changes in immunologic parameters.

Conclusions: Taking the clinical and immunologic outcomes together, clearance of persistent warts following acupuncture might be due to a shift toward a Th1 immune response, or an anti-inflammatory effect against the lesion-induced microenvironment.'

'Acupuncture points SP 6 (Sanyinjiao), LR 13 (Zhang Men

or Zhangmen), LU 6 (Kongzui), ST 36 (Zusanli), LI 10

(Shousanli), GV 3 (Yao Yang Guan), and CV 12 (Zhong

Wan) were treated bilaterally. This formula of

points is the ELS method of reseating the Tai Yin system

that, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, controls

immunologic and skin functions.'

Unfortunately the sample size is too small to draw a definitive conclusion. The acupuncture treatment given was formulaic and not individualised. The authors do not provide details of the needle technique or accurate descriptions of surface anatomy for the points used, all in all making it difficult to replicate this study and it would be a good study to replicate with a larger sample. However there are immune blood markers that do change in the acupuncture group, Interleukin 10 but not in the placebo group which are significant however correlation does not necessarily mean causality.
