Title: Acupuncture Treatment of Diabetes and Hypertension with New Acupuncture Point
Description: Diabetes and Hypertension are fast growing health concerns in societies all over the globe due to multiple factors. Unfortunately there is no curative treatment available in conventional medicine for either problem. The drugs presently used for these disorders are not free from side effects and also one has to learn to live with the disease throughout his life and consume medicines as part of a regular diet to survive. Often doses are increased from time to time and newer and newer drugs are pouring in, more or less on a regular basis and are being dumped in the patient’s body on an experimental basis. This workshop will open new dimensions for many practitioners in treating patients with these problems, especially using new acupuncture point from a different perspective. Practitioners will also understand exact body mechanisms whereby even increasingly higher doses of insulin and anti-hypertensive medicines are not able to control the disease.
