Evidence to support acupuncture
New evidence to support acupuncture has been found, A molecule which may control how acupuncture relieves pain has been pinpointed by US researchers.
Experiments in mice showed that levels of adenosine - a natural painkiller - increased in tissues near acupuncture sites. Adenosine is a chemical found in the body which regulats sleep and stops inflamation, the experiment suggests by inserting needles within certain meridian points it triggers the body to relaease this chemical.
