  3. 3. Scientific Bases of Acupuncture <ul><li>Neurohumoral </li></ul><ul><li>Morphogenetic </li></ul><ul><li>Nerve Reflex Theory </li></ul><ul><li>The gate control theory of pain </li></ul><ul><li>Endorphin </li></ul>
  4. 4. Neuro-humoral Approach <ul><li>Peripheral nervous system to be crucial in mediating the acupuncture analgesia </li></ul><ul><li>Meridian-Cortex-Viscera correlation hypothesis </li></ul>
  5. 5. Neurohumoral Approach <ul><li>Acupoint-brain-organ </li></ul><ul><li>Acupuncture stimulates to brain cortex and nerve system, then control the chemical or hormone release to the disordered organs. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Morphogenetic Theory Shang C. China, 1989 <ul><li>Acupuncture points are singular points in surface bioelectric field </li></ul><ul><li>The role of electric field in growth control and morphogenesis </li></ul><ul><li>Organizing centers have high electric conductance </li></ul><ul><li>Acupuncture points originate from organizing centers </li></ul>
  7. 7. Nerve Reflex Theory -Ishikawa and Fujita et al, Japan, 1950s <ul><li>Autonomic nervous system extending thru the internal organs </li></ul><ul><li>Viscera-mutinous reflex </li></ul><ul><li>Cutanous –Viscera reflex </li></ul><ul><li>Acupuncture utilize these reflexes for restoring the homeostasis of the body and acceralate the healing process. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Gate Control Theory Drs Melzack and Wall, 1965 <ul><li>Model for acupuncture pain relief </li></ul><ul><li>Specific nerve fibers that transmit pain to the spinal cord (substantia gelatinous) </li></ul><ul><li>Balance between Stimulation & inhibitory fibers </li></ul><ul><li>Short term block pain by acupuncture ( did not explain the prolong effect) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Endorphin Theory Dr. Pomeranz, Canada, 1996 <ul><li>Natural Morphine </li></ul><ul><li>Acupuncture trigger the release of endorphin into the central nervous system </li></ul><ul><li>Only deal with pain </li></ul><ul><li>Corticoids and Substance P also released along with endorphin </li></ul>
  10. 10. Therapeutic Mechanisms of Acupuncture
  11. 11. Acupuncture Mechanisms of Action <ul><li>Conduction of electromagnetic signals </li></ul><ul><li>Activation of opioids systems </li></ul><ul><li>Changes in brain chemistry-release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Acupuncture Pathways
  13. 13. Meridian-Cortex-Viscera Correlation Hypothesis <ul><li>1. The meridian system is and connected the nervous system to the cerebral cortex. </li></ul><ul><li>2. It acts through neurohumoral mechanisms </li></ul><ul><li>3. Acu-point-Brain-organ model: stimulates the brain cortex/nervous system, then controlling the chemical or hormone release to the disordered organs for treatment. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Morphogenetic Singularity Theory <ul><li>Acupuncture points are singular points in surface bioelectric field </li></ul><ul><li>Converging points of surface current for change in electric current flow. </li></ul><ul><li>Abrupt transition from one state to another. </li></ul><ul><li>Eg: BaiHui (Du 20) </li></ul>
  15. 15. Physical characteristics of the acupuncture points-WHO <ul><li>Points are corresponds to the high electrical conductance points on the body surface </li></ul><ul><li>High density of gap junctions at the epithelia of the acupuncture points. </li></ul><ul><li>Gap junctions are hexagonal proteins that facilitate intercellular communication and increase electric conductivity. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Research on Auricular points <ul><li>WHO found 43 points have proven therapeutic value </li></ul><ul><li>Therapeutic effect can be achieved by needling, temperature variation, laser, ultrasound, and pressure. </li></ul>

  18. 18. Effects of acupuncture on the Brain-auditory cortex
  19. 19. Why acupuncture has fewer side effects? <ul><li>May indirect adjust the process and restore normal function by activating the network of organizing centers in the organism </li></ul><ul><li>The activation of the self-organizing activity is less likely to cause the side effects resulted from directly antagonizing a pathological process which often overlap with other normal and beneficial physiological processes. </li></ul>
  20. 20. The role of electric field in growth control and morphogenesis <ul><li>Enhanced cell growth toward cathode and reduced cell growth toward anode in electric fields of physiological strength </li></ul><ul><li>Fast growing cells tend to have relative negativity polarity. </li></ul><ul><li>The polarity is due to the increased negative membrane potential generated by mitochondria at high rate of energy metabolism </li></ul>
  21. 21.

  22. 22. Mechanisms of acupuncture for Pain relief <ul><li>Polymodal receptors </li></ul><ul><li>(PMRs) in the acupuncture points are sensitized for the immediate action. </li></ul><ul><li>Action mediated by endogenous opioids </li></ul><ul><li>Potent stimulus for activating the analgesic systems </li></ul>
  23. 23. Therapeutic Mechanisms of Acupuncture -Dr.D. Kendall, 1980 <ul><li>Inserting a needle provokes an acute defensive inflammatory response </li></ul><ul><li>Afferent nociceptive (pain) neurons distribute to the dorsal horn of the spinal cord </li></ul><ul><li>Trigger the gamma loop efferent in the ventral horn and activate neurons that cross over the spinal cord to the brain </li></ul><ul><li>Activate somatic motor nerves </li></ul><ul><li>To muscles, and autonomic motor nerves to peripheral blood vessels and to the internal organs </li></ul>
