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 taken acupuncture and TCM treatment for about sixteen years from a number of different practitioners. Because of serious health issues in my mid 30's, that were not treatable through ordinary western medicine, TCM was the most viable (and successful alternative). For several years I studied TCM as an amateur with the hope of one day joining the profession. Additionally, my wife is a MS degree educated physical therapist with advanced training in nursing, various types of alternative health including cranial-sacral therapy and other methods. We are pretty well informed and well qualified to offer an opinion about anyone in the field, and are quite careful about whom we work with.

In short, Dr. Zheng Zeng is the finest Oriental Medical Doctor I have ever encountered, and my wife shares that opinion. She is brilliant, technically superior, a master at herbal medicine and more over a sweet, kind woman. She is the finest type of doctor that one could imagine. I have had significant improvements in my health since working with her (even better than other very good OMD's I 've worked with in the past). Dr. Zeng is in my experience superior to anyone in her field. I would recommend her without any hesitation to anyone.
