Acupuncture is highly effective as a form of treatment for high blood pressure. This is according to researchers who looked at the effects that it can have for providing relief for various health conditions like anxiety, headaches, dizziness and tinnitus. In addition, acupuncture can also successfully alleviate palpitations caused by hypertension.
Researchers found that the body gives an important biological response to acupuncture. It regulates TNF-a and TNF-a-stimulated endothelin (ET) in those patrients with hypertension. Researchers demonstrate that acupuncture can successfully down regulate TNF-a and ET in patients who have hypertension. Consequently, it helps in reducing blood pressure levels and any related symptoms.
The work of Liang et al. shows the effectiveness of acupuncture for finding relief of peripheral vasospasms. Their work also demonstrated that acupuncture can significantly promote cardiac output.
Related researches from The University of California School of Medicine, Southern California University of Health Sciences and the East Hospital in China all had similar findings. They published that electroacupuncture was highly effective at reducing blood pressure and producing long lasting clinical results.
The research found that weekly acupressure applied to the relevant “pressure points”, lowered both the systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with hypertension. Researchers also found that electroacupuncture had a “stronger effect” on lowering systolic blood pressure than the diastolic blood pressure. Acupuncture can both decrease the peak and average systolic blood pressure.
Therefore, electroacupuncture could decrease the risk of periphery artery disease, heart failure, stroke and myocardial infarction in the hypertensive patients. Investigations continue into the efficacy of acupuncture for treating hypertension.
The good news is that it’s also possible to achieve these same health benefits at home using a DIY electro-acupuncture device.
