Acupuncture For High Blood Pressure –
A New Treatment That Works
By: Oliver Turner
immemorial, Acupuncture is a unique treatment for reducing high blood pressure
in human beings. High blood pressure refers to a situation where blood starts
exerting pressure against the walls of arteries, veins and also the chambers of
the heart. Over a specified time period, this heavy rush of blood starts
damaging the lining of the blood vessels. It can also lead to arteriosclerosis,
meaning hardening of the arteries.
Symptoms of high blood pressure
High blood pressure symptoms are often acute in human beings. They include sudden dizziness, flushed faces, nervousness, severe headaches, restlessness, difficult breathing, nose bleeding, insomnia, intestinal complaints, depression, short temper and emotional instability. The diagnosis of high blood pressure is done when the normal pressure tends to repeatedly rise. The other physical symptoms of high blood pressure includes constant tendency to urinate, decrease in eye vision and muscle weakness.
Acupuncture combined with electric stimulation or electro-acupuncture can lower elevations of blood pressure in human beings. When the research was conducted for the first time, acupuncture needles were inserted on the inside of the forearm just above the wrist, but to no avail. Researchers then started adding electric stimulation to the needles, which means that electric would start flowing from the needles to the body. While high frequency of stimulation had no effect, low frequencies of electro stimulation reduced blood pressure effectively.
A thorough research on acupuncture shows that the inserted
needles excites brain cells, causing them to release neurotransmitters that
always heighten the heart’s activities. To cure high blood pressure, acupuncture
inserts needles on certain points on the wrist, forearm or leg, to excite the
opioid chemicals in the brain and reduce excitatory responses of the
cardiovascular systems. This eventual decrease in heart activity and need for
oxygen can lower blood pressure to a great extent. It also promotes in the
healing of other heart-related conditions like myocardial ischemia and
