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
- 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.

However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
