  The New Concept of Acupuncture


Since 1980, I have studied a wide range of the scientific literature as it relates to acupuncture retrospectively to the earliest medical texts. I also closely monitored new publications related to acupuncture.

Over the last 20 years, I could witness the evolutions of the theoretical rationalization of acupuncture and how new studies often reversed or modified previous assumptions.

The first apprehensive attempts of the 1950s to scientifically explain acupuncture have developed into a wealth of scientific evidence that provides novel insights into the biological basis of Acupuncture and presents fragments of a new emerging scientific theory.
Along with my active professional experience and personal involvement in research, I am convinced of the validity of a new scientific paradigm that explicates the phenomenon of Acupuncture.
This is my attempt to bring a brief conceptual summary of the ideas that are now being expressed by scientists in the United States and worldwide.

The core of this new concept is the recognition of the material existence of an integrative system of a new kind that compliments and coexists with the nervous system, vascular system, lymphatic etc.

This new concept summarized in bullets presented below, is by no means a final product but rather my humble opinion and an invitation for discussion.

Your comments are welcomed and appreciated.

- Points and Meridians are components of an integrative system of a new kind.

- Its morphological substrate is connective tissue (dense and loose).

- The Meridian System is composed of piezoelectric material and has an electromagnetic nature.

- It facilitates organization and control within the organism

- This system is responsible for three-dimensional orientation during embriogenesis.

- It sustains structural integrity for the organs and the entire body.

- Evolutionarily it is the oldest integrative system of multicellular organisms.


More coming soon...
