Effects of Percutaneous Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation for Neck Pain in Patients With Cervical Spondylosis.
Abstract Context: Cervical spondylosis (CS) is a very common, age-related, chronic, disc-degeneration condition. Alternative medicine has been widely used to treat neck pain in CS. However, no randomized controlled trials have focused on the effects and safety of percutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (PNMES) for neck-pain relief in patients with CS. Objective: The study aimed to evaluate the effects and safety of PNMES for treating neck pain in patients with cervical spondylosis (CS). Design: The research team designed a two-arm, double-blinded, randomized, sham-controlled trial. Setting...

Mold Exposure and Mitochondrial Antibodies.
Conclusions: The fact that high levels of AMA in the 6 patients were all associated with mold and moisture exposure appears to be significant. Exposure to water- and mold-damaged indoor environments might damage mitochondria and trigger autoimmunity. Long term follow-up is needed to determine what may develop in these patients.

A Case Study on Preoperative Acupuncture in Reducing the Risk of Operation.
Abstract The present study investigated the role of acupuncture as a pretreatment prior to surgery. The 72-y-old female was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer and suffered from severe anxiety before the operation. The blood pressure of the patient was elevated due to anxiety. With concern regarding the potential risk of planned surgery, the operation was cancelled. Alternatively, acupuncture was used to reduce her blood pressure and relieve the anxiety. Later on, the patient was examined by an anesthetist, who confirmed that the operation could be carried out as planned. Thus, acupuncture is a promising add-on...

Acupuncture-like Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation for Pain, Function, and Biochemical Inflammation After Total Knee Arthroplasty.
Abstract Context: Clinical studies suggest that AL-TENS, acupuncture-like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), is effective for treating many types of pain and physical dysfunction. To date, only a few studies have compared the TENS and AL-TENS forms of stimulation, and no studies have compared the efficacy of conventional TENS and AL-TENS in patients who have undergone total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

A Review of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Glossary of Meridian Pathways and Its English Translations.
Abstract The meridian and collateral theory in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) provides practitioners with essential guidance about the complex network of meridians and collateral systems, as well as informing discussions on physiopathology, diagnoses, and treatments. Various translations have enabled nonnative Chinese to understand the intricacy of the meridian pathways. However, original meanings are easily lost in the text transcription and translation, leading to misinterpretation and confusion in the learning process. We set out to (a) review the standard glossary that describes the meridian pathways; (b) ...

Dry Needling: Is It Derived From Acupuncture? How Did Nonacupuncturists Start Using It?
Conclusions: Acupuncturists and physicians must complete extensive acupuncture training in accredited programs and pass national examinations to become licensed or certified to practice acupuncture. However, a typical DN course runs only 20-30 h, often in the course of 1 weekend, and the participants may receive a DN certificate without any national examination being required. For the safety of patients and professional integrity, the research team strongly suggests that all DN practitioners and educators should have to meet the same basic standards as those required for licensed acupuncturists or physicians.

Case Report: Fainting During Acupuncture Treatment.
Conclusions: The research team suggests that the fainting occurred for the patients in the two case studies secondary to the hungry state. Hunger may be one of the most important causes of fainting connected to acupuncture. The failure of a practitioner to perform treatment for fainting in a timely and effective manner, or his or her improper handling of it, can lead to serious consequences. Therefore, factors that may cause fainting should be minimized to avoid their occurrence during acupuncture.

Abstract Background: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most frequent entrapment neuropathy in humans. Nonsurgical management is still a matter of debate, and conservative treatments include splinting, local steroid injections, ultrasound, and oral steroids. Acupuncture and electroacupuncture therapy for symptomatic CTS may improve symptoms and aid nerve repair as well as improve sensory and motor functions. However, limited evidence based on comprehensive evaluation methods is available regarding the effects of those treatments. Objective: The study intended to compare the short-term effects of acupuncture ...

The Endocannabinoid System and its Modulation by Cannabidiol (CBD).
Abstract The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is an extensive endogenous signaling system with multiple elements, the number of which may be increasing as scientists continue to elucidate its role in human health and disease. The ECS is seemingly ubiquitous in animal species and is modulated by diet, sleep, exercise, stress, and a multitude of other factors, including exposure to phytocannabinoids, like Cannabidiol (CBD). Modulating the activity of this system may offer tremendous therapeutic promise for a diverse scope of diseases, ranging from mental health disorders, neurological and movement disorders, pain, autoi...

The Important Role of the Endocannabinoid System and the Endocannabinoidome in Gut Health.
Abstract The endocannabinoid system is an endogenous pathway comprised of the cannabinoid receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2), their endogenous ligands known as endocannabinoids, and the enzymes responsible for their synthesis and degradation. The endocannabinoidome extends this system to include other receptors such as TRPV1, PPARα, GPR55 and 5-HT1A. An extensive amount of research is now linking the endocannabinoidome to intestinal health through fascinating mechanisms that include endocannabinoid receptor expression in the gut and interplay with the intestinal microbiota. A dysregulated endocannabinoid system...
