  Title Migraine with Multiple Sensory Auras. Type of Study RCT
  Year 2016 Journal Title Acta Neurologica Taiwanica Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 25 Issue 4 Pages  
  Subjects Migraine with Aura; Acupuncture  
  Abstract Migraine auras are typically visual in nature but can manifest as disturbances in somatosensory, auditory,

and olfactory senses. Reports of multiple sensory auras are rare in the literature, but their existence may

offer novel insights into the pathogenesis of this highly common yet complex neurological condition. Here

we report a case of multiple sensory auras involving somatosensory, auditory, and olfactory disturbances

in a patient with migraine without visual manifestations.

A 45-year-old woman with a 20-year history of migrainous headaches presented with complaints of right-

sided facial and hand numbness and paraesthesia. In addition to somatosensory symptoms, she eventually

presented with tinnitus, cutaneous allodynia, and phantosmia, each of which was temporally associated

with episodes of headache. No abnormalities were detected on NCS, EEG, MRI, and laboratory

investigations. Her symptoms were managed by prophylactic medications and acupuncture. The theories

of cortical spreading depression, cortical sensitization, and thalamocortical network involvement were

discussed as possible explanations for sensory auras in migraine. This case report of migraine with

multiple sensory auras spanning somatosensory, auditory, and olfactory modalities offers novel insights

into the pathophysiology of migrainous auras

  Title Warming needle eases severe pain during menses: a case and thermographic measurement Type of Study RCT
  Year 2013 Journal Title Medical Acupuncture Abbreviated Journal Med Acupunct  
  Volume 25 Issue 3 Pages 227-231  
  Subjects Acupuncture Therapy; Acupuncture Points; Pelvic Pain; Dysmenorrhea  
  Abstract Dysmenorrhea is a very common disease in China and the Western world. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this condition mostly relates to Coldness pathogeny. Based on TCM, a warming needle acupuncture technique dredges out the Coldness to ease pain.

With the onset of dymenorrheal pain, skin temperature of the lower abdomen at the locus of pain is lower than that of a nonpainful area on the abdomen. After acupuncture stimulation, or when the pain is relieved, skin temperature returns to normal values. It can be concluded that there is a relationship between pain and skin temperature. However, further research on that topic is needed.

  Title Acupuncture for recurrent uncomplicated urinary tract infection in women Type of Study RCT
  Year 2013 Journal Title Medical Acupuncture Abbreviated Journal Med Acupunct  
  Volume 25 Issue 3 Pages 221-226  
  Subjects Acupuncture Therapy; Urinary Tract Infections; Cystitis; Bacteriuria  
  Abstract Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common bacterial infection in women, with 50%-60% having at least one episode of infection at some point of their lives. Recurrences are common (66%); Escherichia coli is the most common causative organism. Uncomplicated UTI, which is the focus of this article, responds well to short courses of antibiotics, but, after repeated use, emergence of antibiotic resistance is a major issue.

Use of the combination of points for symptom control; and selective use of points according to Disharmony patterns for each particular patient; and supportive use of Extra Meridian Yin Qiao Mai, which has beneficial effects on all aspects of UTI, can treat most patients with UTI effectively. In addition, control of symptoms and prevention of recurrence can be achieved.

  Year 2013 Journal Title Medical Acupuncture Abbreviated Journal Med Acupunct  
  Volume 25 Issue 3 Pages 209-215  
  Subjects Acupuncture Therapy; Low Back Pain; Women; Heart Rate; Autonomic Nervous System  
  Abstract Pain is associated with autonomic imbalance, which mainly manifests as increased sympathetic activity. Up to now, there has been no scientific articles focusing on autonomic modulation of acupuncture for treating low-back pain (LBP) in women. Heart rate (HR) and Heart rate variability (HRV) are useful parameters to quantify short-term changes in the autonomic nervous system in females with LBP. Further studies using the same standardized acupuncture scheme in all patients and involving at least ten acupuncture sessions are planned.

  Title Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment of amenorrhea Type of Study RCT
  Year 2013 Journal Title Medical Acupuncture Abbreviated Journal Med Acupunct  
  Volume 25 Issue 3 Pages 205-208  
  Subjects Acupuncture Therapy; Moxibustion; Amenorrhea  
  Abstract Acupuncture is one popular modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) among CAM. Acupuncture is and utilized increasingly by women for certain female-specific health conditions. However, the evidence for the application of this modality, especially for treating amenorrhea, is frequently based on case report studies. There has been a lack of randomized controlled trials (RCT) or large cohort studies on this topic in the English literature. Some small-scale cohort or case studies indicate that acupuncture, compared to hormonal therapy, can be advantageous for women with amenorrhea. However, more in-depth studeis, such as RCTs or large cohort studies, are needed to develop clear guidelines in this area of treatment.

  Year 2013 Journal Title Medical Acupuncture Abbreviated Journal Med Acupunct  
  Volume 25 Issue 3 Pages 195-199  
  Subjects Infertility; Acupuncture Therapy; Women  
  Abstract Infertility is an extremely distressing experience for many women, and it is associated with psychologic morbidity, including anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. Many studies have suggested a positive link between the use of acupuncture during in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment at the time of embryo transfer. However, clinical trials have drawn varying conclusions, and this makes physicians uncertain about recommending acupuncture to their patients. Despite this uncertainty, infertile women increasingly seek acupuncture for fertility support during treatment.

  Abstract Anxiety and depression are high in prevalence, especially in the female population, whose incidence is approximately double that of the male population.

  Title Suggested changes in location and function and pairing of eight distal limb acupoints in dogs and cats Type of Study RCT
  Year 2011 Journal Title American Journal of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine Abbreviated Journal Am J Tradit Chin Vet Med  
  Volume 6 Issue 6 Pages 17-21  
  Subjects Veterinary Medicine; Acupuncture Points  
  Abstract The locations and functions of many acupoints in animals have been transposed from humans. Using mirror imagery and altering acupoint locations to achieve symmetry, changes in acupoint locations are suggested. Acupoints LIV-3 and LI-4, the “four gates”, are located in symmetrical mirror locations in humans. To achieve symmetry with LIV-3 in dogs and cats, it is proposed that LI-4 always be located between the 2nd and 3rd metacarpal bones. Acupoints LU-9 and SP-3 are suggested to be located on the medial side of the second metacarpal or metatarsal bone just proximal to the metacarpophalangeal and metatarsophalangeal joints respectively to achieve symmetry and become a balancing pair. It is also proposed that TH-3 function as the Yang-Wei confluent point instead of TH-5, as TH-3 has anatomic symmetry with GB-41, the Dai-Mai confluent point and the two acupoints can be paired together to balance the Extraordinary Vessels. Slight alterations in the locations of BL-65 and SI-3 are suggested to achieve anatomic symmetry, so that they can also be combined as pairs to achieve balance through the Extraordinary Vessels. The acupoint pairs LU-9/SP-3, TH-3/GB-41 and BL-65/SI-3 are all Shu-Stream acupoints and located on the same level Channel (e.g. LU-9/SP-3 Tai Yin Channels; TH-3/ GB-41 Shao Yang Channels; BL-65/SI-3 Tai Yang Channels). Anatomically the suggested changes are rational. However it has been the author’s positive clinical experiences using these new acupoint locations and functions that motivated beginning this dialogue. Successful clinical use by other acupuncturists will determine the validity of these suggested changes.

  Abstract Wu Mao-wen, the chief physician, applied intracutaneous pyonex in treatment of various pains, internal medicine diseases, and gynecological diseases. This therapy is not only based on such common methods in TCM as ''retaining in static'' and ''selecting points based on pattern differentiation'' in clinical point selection, but also extends Zhang Zhong-jing prescription theory to ''acupoint selection'' and ''specialized in macro use'' in acupoint selection of pyonex.
