Reignite the Spark!

ELECTROACUPUNCTURE FOR THE TREATMENT OF NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES

 

Hear of the latest research behind electroacupuncture and neurological diseases:

  • Alzheimer’s disease/ Dementia
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Motor Neuron Disease
  • Parkinson’s
  • Multiple Sclerosis

Neurological disease is an increasingly common issue in our lives today, but research is building on the different ways acupuncture can help.

Dr. John Nieters, LAc recently gave a talk at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco addressing the science behind the marriage of ancient Chinese medicine and the application of focused electrical stimulation to body.

Through this talk you will gain a deeper understanding of how this ancient healing modality has successfully combated these fast growing diseases; how electroacupucture targets specific receptors to stimulate neuropeptides release and how this affects cerebral rehabilitation and neural synaptic repair.
