Authors: Maurer N, Nissel H, Egerbacher M, Gornik E, Schuller P, Traxler H Abstract For more than 2500 years, acupuncture has been applied to support the healing of different diseases and physiologic malfunctions. Although various theories of the meridian system and mechanisms were formulated to explain the functional basis of acupuncture, the anatomical basis for the concept of meridians has not been resolved. The aim of the present study was to search for replicable anatomical structures that could relate to meridians. To this end, four human specimens and additionally two lower legs were dissected anatomically. ...

Conclusions: In the treatment of lumbar disc herniation, Tuina and acupuncture were superior to traction or Chinese herbs, and the effectiveness of traction was the worst. However, considering the limitations of this review, more high-quality trials, especially those comparing Chinese herbs with the other three interventions, should be carried out in the future to further confirm the current findings.

Authors: Liu X, Zhu Y, Zheng W, Qian T, Wang H, Hou X Abstract Chronic inflammation in fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) induced by pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α plays a key role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The neurokinin-1 receptor (NK-1R) is one of the G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) mediating the intracellular signalling of substance P (SP). However, the possible implications of NK-1R in rheumatoid arthritis fibroblast-like synoviocytes (RA-FLSs) and the pathogenesis of RA have not yet been reported. In the current study, we report that NK-1R is expressed in FLSs. Imp...

In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help.

Debbie posted this comment on the Wheat Belly Facebook page: “I posted a few weeks back about our scare from our primary care doctor. My husband had a calcium score of 1200. We panicked! Messaged Dr. Davis and went the next day to a cardio doctor and had a stress test, ultrasound, and blood test (inflammatory markers). Got him on recommended supplements per Dr Davis. “Latest update: Cardio doctor says, being as you started ‘Wheat Belly’ back in October, 2014, your score could have been higher and already started to improve, we don’t know. What we DO know is, because of this new way of eating,...
