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.

For the past six months I have received treatment/care from Dr. Liu in lieu of taking methotrexate as prescribed by a Rheumatologist.

Treatment/service has included acupuncture, heat therapy, Xuan Bi herbs, use of smokeless pure moxa sticks, body work and Qi Gong/tai chi instruction and study.

Any questions I asked were answered thoughtfully.

Results have been positive both emotionally and physically.

I recommend Dr. Liu specifically.
