What is a peptic ulcer?
A peptic ulcer is an open sore in the lining of your stomach or the upper part of the small intestine. That happens when your stomach acids etch away your digestive tract’s protective layer of mucus.
There are two types of peptic ulcers:
Gastric ulcer. You get this on your stomach lining.
Duodenal ulcer. This appears at the top end of the small intestine, an organ that digests and absorbs much of the food you eat.
A recent study done by Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhongnan University, concludes that acupuncture increases the total effective rate of drug therapy for the treatment of peptic ulcers.
Researchers combined acupuncture with standard drug therapy. Patients receiving both drug therapy and acupuncture in a combined treatment protocol had superior patient outcomes compared with patients receiving only drug therapy.

The Parkinson’s Foundation describes Parkinson’s as a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominately dopamine-producing (“dopaminergic”) neurons in a specific area of the brain called substantia nigra.
Typically, symptoms develop slowly over years. The progression of symptoms is often a bit different from person to person due to the diversity of the disease. People with PD may experience:
Tremor, mainly at rest and described as pill rolling tremor in hands.Other forms of tremor are possibleBradykinesia (slow movement)Limb rigidityGait and balance problems
The cause remains largely unknown. Although there is no cure, treatment options vary and include medications and surgery. While Parkinson’s itself is not fatal, disease complications can be serious. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) rated complications from PD as the 14th cause of death in the United States.
A recent study conducted by University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou China compared the effects of drug therapy by itself and then with acupuncture integrated into the drug therapy protocol. Based on that data they concluded that acupuncture in addition to the Parkinson’s drug therapy was significantly more effective then only using the drug therapy.

Many of you might be asking what is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Diet.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) approach to nutrition, would be to listen to what your body is asking for.
In TCM the belief is that there are many unique body types. This isn’t the same as eating right for your blood type (possibly another trend). What may be healthy for your friend or family member may not really be the best nutrition for your body or your digestion.
How can you find out what your body type is? Do you have a tendency towards constipation or loose stools? Do you run cold or hot? Are you underweight or overweight? These are a few of the factors in defining your unique body type or constitution. We recommend that you talk with your acupuncturist and they can do a full exam and go over your dietary needs.
