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 used to suffer from weekly, if not bi-weekly, debilitating migraines. After exhausting other methods of care, I made an appointment with Dr. Liu. Both Liu and his wife, Zheng Zeng, have been treating me for four months now. They are both genuinely kind, concerned, and compassionate. For once, someone tried to get to the root of the cause of migraines instead of offering a quick fix. I have been migraine free for 3 1/2 months now and feel like I have my life back for the first time in years!
