Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) conclude that acupuncture protects the heart. Electroacupuncture applied to acupuncture points P6 and P5 in anesthetized rabbits with coronary artery occlusion resulted in less ventricular arrhythmias. Electroacupuncture also decreased heart infarct size, meaning, electroacupuncture protected the heart from tissue death due to obstruction of blood and oxygen supply.
Several studies have documented the use of acupuncture to combat nausea and vomiting, with PC6, an acupoint located above the wrist on each arm, among the points most commonly tested. A randomized, placebo-controlled crossover study published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management has found that stimulating PC6 appears to ease the symptoms of morning sickness, and that acupuncture has a "clinically useful effect" in treating hyperemesis.
Research on ACUPUNCTURE AND IVF. "The researchers note that the success rate of IVF is 24% as a standalone therapy. The combination of IVF WITH ACUPUNCTURE has a significantly higher success rate of 42.5%."
