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 receiving services from Dr. Liu since 2006 and have many visits with him. Every time he has been very professional, observant, accommodating, intuitive and present. Because of his work on me, I have been able to avoid surgery. I would recommend him to anyone needing acupuncture for any reason. I feel totally safe and cared for and I trust his judgment completely. And besides all that, he is, really, one of the nicest people I know!!! Smiling face.
