The History and Future of Acupuncture: Time Means Everything

The Past of Acupuncture: As a general practice medicine, acupuncture can help a wide range of health problems at different extents. Acupuncture has been serving Chinese about 2000 years, according to the clearly recorded history. Some authorities claim that acupuncture has been practiced in China for some 4,000 years. The Chinese believe that the practice of acupuncture began during the Stone Age. Chinese had been depending on Traditional Chinese medicine for their health problems, until Jesuits introduced some western books on medicine and western knowledge of human anatomy in about 1656-1737, when Chinese began to know western medicine knowledge. Time means everything!
The Future of Acupuncture: Looking ahead, it is clear that acupuncture is poised to make significant inroads into conventional medicine. It has the potential to become a part of every hospital’s standard of care and, in fact, this is already starting to take place not only in the U.S., but internationally. ------ and more.

Inflammation and Diseases

The Root of Most Diseases: Although inflammation has long been known to play a role in allergic diseases like asthma, arthritis and Crohn’s disease, Edwards says that Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and Parkinson’s disease may all be related to chronic inflammation in the body.

Inflammation Affects Every Aspects of Your Health: Inflammation controls our lives. Have you or a loved one dealt with pain, obesity, ADD/ADHD, peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, migraines, thyroid issues, dental issues, or cancer?
If you answered yes to any of these disorders you are dealing with inflammation. By Dr. David M. Marquis, DC, DACBN. http://articles.mercola.com/
Buzzed on inflammation: Inflammation is the new medical buzzword. It seems as though everyone is talking about it, especially the fact that inflammation appears to play a role in many chronic diseases.

Inflammation and Cancer

Anti-inflammatory Cancer Treatments: In Latin, the word "inflammation" means "ignite, set alight" and like gasoline, that’s exactly what it does for cancer. A microenvironment of chronic inflammation sets the stage for cancer. Inflammation increases chemotherapy resistance and turn on oncogenes, genes that can turn cells into tumors. Inflammation promotes the spreading and mutating of cancer cells while continuing to push the mutations within the cancer cells’ development. Inflammation also enhances tumors ability to recruit blood supply (angiogenesis). Changes catalyzed by pathogenic inflammation can transform cells into cancerous tumors. Cancer is an inflammation!

Review Article Inflammation and cancer: Recent data have expanded the concept that inflammation is a critical component of tumour progression. Many cancers arise from sites of infection, chronic irritation and inflammation. It is now becoming clear that the tumour microenvironment, which is largely orchestrated by inflammatory cells, is an indispensable participant in the neoplastic process, fostering proliferation, survival and migration. In addition, tumour cells have co-opted some of the signalling molecules of the innate immune system, such as selectins, chemokines and their receptors for invasion, migration and metastasis. These insights are fostering new anti-inflammatory therapeutic approaches to cancer development. By Lisa M. Coussens & Zena Werb.

The Value of Acupuncture in Cancer Care: In the United States, acupuncture is used to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions associated with cancer and the side effects of cancer treatments. A number of cancer centers in the U.S., including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston are integrating acupuncture into cancer care. This trend parallels a broader trend of increasing use of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) among cancer patients, estimated in some surveys to range between 48% and 83%.1–4 Specific use of acupuncture by cancer patients is estimated to range between 1.7% and 31%.5–7 Despite interest by conventional care providers and the public in the integration of acupuncture into cancer care, the full extent to which acupuncture can be applied to oncology care is limited by research evidence regarding its efficacy and safety in treating and preventing cancer-related symptoms. ----------.
