A Novel, Needle-Array Dry-Electrode With Stainless Steel Micro-Tips, for Electroencephalography Monitoring
A novel, needle array dry electrode consisting of 10  × 10 array of stainless steel (SS) Microtips was developed for electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring. The developed dry electrode uses commercially available, inexpensive, SS acupuncture needles certified for invasive use, to collect the EEG signal. The microtips of the acupuncture needles p roject out of a flat Teflon base by approximately 150μm. Mechanical failure analysis was carried out, with theoretical calculations for individual needles and experimental measurements with a universal testing machine (UTM). The theoretically calculated crit...

TRPV1 is a Responding Channel for Acupuncture Manipulation in Mice Peripheral and Central Nerve System
Conclusion: Our data demonstrates that both MA and EA can activate excitatory signals in either peripheral or central levels. We also define that TRPV1 is crucial for an acupuncture effect and then initiate excitatory pNR1-pCaMKII pathway, at peripheral DRG and central SC-SSC level. We suggest that the TRPV1 signaling pathway is highly correlated to Acupuncture effect that implies the real clinical significance.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;49:1813 –1824 (Source: Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry)

Complementary and alternative medicine in patients with inflammatory bowel disease: A survey performed in a tertiary center in Chile.
CONCLUSIONS: The type of CAM being used plays an important role when the patient makes the decision to inform the gastroenterologist. Other healthcare professionals play an important role in providing the advice to start CAM. Gastroenterologists must be aware of the high prevalence of CAM use in IBD patients, actively ask about CAM use and guide the patients who want to use CAM in a responsible and safe manner.

A collaborative model of integrative care: Synergy between Anthroposophic music therapy, acupuncture, and spiritual care in two patients with breast cancer.
Abstract Complementary/integrative medicine (CIM) has been shown to play an important role in supportive cancer care, relieving symptoms and improving quality of life among oncology patients. Communication between CIM practitioners and oncology healthcare professionals has been researched in depth, while little attention has been paid to the interaction between CIM practitioners from different disciplines who work together in the integrative oncology setting. The present paper explores the interaction between an Anthroposophic music therapist and a spiritual care provider who co-treated two female patients with br...

Experimental study on the influence of pressing force and time on thermal effect of An-pressing manipulation
ConclusionThe thermal effect presented an increasing tendency with the extension of pressing time, and the temperature reached the top at 7.5 min; the thermal effect showed an increasing tendency with the rise of pressing force, and the temperature reached the top upon a moderate level of force. The pressing time can produce a greater influence on the real-time temperature than the pressing force; the pressing force can produce a greater influence on maintaining the temperature than the pressing time.

Beyond Estrogen: Treatment Options for Hot Flashes.
Abstract Nonhormonal medications and complementary and alternative therapies are used by many women seeking relief from bothersome hot flashes. However, health care professionals may be less familiar with these treatment modalities. Although estrogen remains the most effective medication to reduce hot flashes, its potential harmful effects have led investigators to examine other treatments for hot flashes, and many women seek alternative forms of relief. Most of these trials are limited by a significant placebo effect, which frequently equals the effectiveness of the medication being evaluated. Despite this limita...

Abstract To assess the efficacy and safety of wet cupping in adults with hypertension, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis using 13 databases. Wet cupping alone or in combination with antihypertensive medication or acupuncture was used. Seven randomized trials were included, most not of high methodological quality. A few small studies suggested that wet cupping alone versus antihypertensive medication significantly reduced blood pressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine syndrome (hypertension-related symptoms). However based on current evidence, no firm conclusions can be drawn and no clinical recom...
