August 17th, 2013 by Lynn Connolly.

Have u had tattooed on yer forehead? Or KN*B on yer knuckles? And another remarked, Lewis Hamilton gave his dog acupuncture. That guy used to be cool. What happened? Other messages on the site questioned whether Lewis had carried out the acupuncture himself, to which he angrily replied, Ps. No, the vet gave him acupuncture. How the hell would I know how to do acupuncture!! However, keen to move on from the debacle, Lewis then posted the cute image below to Instagram with the comment, My school photo as a kid.#young #fresh #life #love And earlier this month, perhaps by way of commentary about his break up with former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole, Lewis once again took to Instagram to say along with the pic below There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love. Martin Luther King, Jr #lovelife Lewis and Nicole of course ended their five -year relationship recently, citing their individual work commitments as being the problem, given that their globetrotting meant they spent very little time together.

Much more to acupuncture than needles
women ages 35 to 40, and about 20 percent for those ages 40 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The cost is typically more than $10,000 per attempt. Many women have turned to acupuncture to increase their odds of getting pregnant via IVF . The therapy became more popular after it was featured on the television program “Sex and the City.” However, there has been no significant evidence that acupuncture helps women get pregnant when used in conjunction with IVF, nor is there agreement among doctors about why it would work. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the human body has a life force, or energy called chi, which travels through the body along meridians. In this tradition, acupuncture needles stimulate certain points below the skin to help unblock and regulate the flow of chi and, thus, aid in healing. Chinese culture has used acupuncture for thousands of years to improve fertility. Acupuncture proponents claim the female body has various points related to fertility, mostly associated with the kidney, liver and heart. Most Western doctors don’t subscribe to the notion of meridians and chi. Indeed, the medical literature is rife with letters to the editor calling the practice of acupuncture with IVF ridiculous and frivolous. Some doctors, however, have hypothesized that acupuncture may reduce stress and increase blood flow to the uterus, which could, in turn, increase the chances of getting pregnant. What studies reveal Studies on women undergoing IVF in Europe and North America remain inconclusive. A study published in 2002 by a German team led by Wolfgang Paulus at Christian-Lauritzen-Institut in Germany found that women who had acupuncture therapy along with their IVF were twice as likely to get pregnant compared with women who had only IVF.

Loading… Eric Brand writes in Acupuncture Today: On May 24, 2013, the Traditional Chinese medicine community lost one of its most treasured and tireless supporters, Al Stone, to a rare and unusually aggressive form of ocular melanoma. Al was a pillar of the Chinese medicine community and a friend to all that knew him, and he will be deeply missed. … Al Stone was highly active in the herbal medicine community, and many knew him as a prolific contributor to online forums for practitioners. He saw the Internet’s potential for spreading information about Chinese medicine back when many people still lacked an email account, and his award-winning site http://www.acupuncture.com had received millions of hits by the time he graduated from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in 1997. He also founded Gancao.net and several other popular sites, and his articles and written contributions reached students and practitioners around the world.Al later returned to Emperor’s, where he completed his doctorate degree in 2007 and served as an instructor and clinical supervisor. Al was a co-author of two books with Qiao Yi, the Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis Study Guide and Traditional Chinese Medicine Formula Study Guide, and also worked as a co-author of The Clinical Practice of Chinese Medicine: Pain, published by PMPH in Beijing. I first came upon his writing in the late 1990s when I was still a student, and I remember voraciously taking in his articles and admiring his knowledge, which at the time seemed inspirationally advanced to my novice eyes. Like many who first knew Al in the virtual world, I already felt like he was an old friend by the time I actually met him in person. As time went on, Al and I ended up at the same table in numerous committees and conferences, and his infectious sense of humor could even transform a discussion on FDA regulations into a good time. Al was highly active in the AAAOM, and preserving practitioner access to Chinese herbs was a core goal of many of his recent efforts. Al spearheaded major projects related to good dispensing practices for practitioners, and we have a dedicated team that is committed to seeing his vision reach its full fruition. In particular, Al worked hard on a guidance document for good compounding and dispensing practices for Chinese medicine practitioners, and he hoped that by establishing such standards from within the profession, we would be able to strengthen our ability to preserve practitioner access to herbs over the long-term future. The more that we stay united and work hard to protect access to Chinese herbal medicine, the more that Al’s spirit lives on within us.In honor of Al and his work, the AAAOM is founding the Stone Memorial Fund to raise money for a prominent and informative web presence for our field.

Acupuncture Today Pays Tribute to Al Stone in September…
Pain conditions included lower back pain, headaches/migraines, neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, TMJ dysfunction, rheumatoid arthritis and even postoperative dental pain. While research confirms that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic pain, it is still unclear which diagnoses benefit the most from treatment. Other conditions for which acupuncture has been used include gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, drug addiction, and psychiatric disorders including depression. The list of conditions continues, but solid evidence to support acupuncture’s use is lacking. This is in part because there are so many acupuncture techniques, making it challenging to compare studies. Plus, many studies suffer from methodological errors, such as small treatment sizes and a lack of control groups. Nonetheless, some people swear by acupuncture as a treatment option. Before you try it If you’re considering giving acupuncture a try, make sure to go to a certified practitioner, and think about discussing the idea with your primary care physician. A health care practitioner may be able to give you more insight and recommend a reliable acupuncturist. A licensed acupuncturist, or LAc, has received a degree/diploma from an accredited college and passed the national certification exams.
