Acupuncture helps glaucoma

Friday, June 21, 2013
A small study on 11 patients with open-angle glaucoma looked at whether acupuncture could help the disease or not. Each of the participants used topical eye drops prior to entering the study. In the study, the researchers gave them acupuncture at points BL2, M-HN9, St-36, Sp-6, KI-3, LR-3, GB-2-, BL-18 and BL-23 on each side. The results were amazing!

Each of the participants had significant improvements in retrobulbar (behind the eye) circulation and intraocular pressure.

There is the article:The therapy that makes glaucoma eye drops work even better.

I have been a patient of Dr. Liu for over a year now. Prior to receiving treatment I suffered from severe symptoms associated with Ulcerative Colitis for almost 10 years. No medication available could give me relief from painful symptoms that included weight loss, fatigue, bloody stool, and fever. With no other options left, save one to remove my large intestine, I came to Dr. Liu to try acupuncture. After three sessions the symptoms that I had lived with for years started to slowly go away. By the fourth session I was completely symptoms free and feeling fantastic. Dr. Liu was able accomplish something no amount of western medicine could...absolute relief. I continue to see Dr. Liu for "tune up's" and have found his mastery of acupuncture has improved my overall health and has been fantastic for stress management.
