There are correlates between Chinese medicine and Western science.

Stimulating the kidney system with acupuncture works to improve vitality, energy production and mental-spiritual focus. In Western parlance, this can be attributed to the action of hormones and neurotransmitters; and their healthy transport through the circulatory system and across neuronal synapses.

Combining these perspectives can be an effective way to manage ADHD.

China is using integrative medicine (i.e. anti-retrovirals, plus herbs) to treat HIV. Early clinical trials have yielded positive results, but have not been peer-reviewed by the Western medical community.

Generally, Western reviews of Chinese clinical trials are limited; and there is often skepticism on the methodologies used in Chinese studies.

While critical reviews can benefit from a healthy dose of skepticism, such bias can also lead to blind rejection of otherwise positive outcomes.

With proper monitoring of clinical outcomes, using Chinese medicine in conjunction with anti-retrovirals in HIV treatment remains a viable option in the Western hemisphere.

Note on medicinal mushrooms: If you are consuming mushrooms for medicinal benefit rather than gastronomy, then hot water extraction is essential.

The extraction process breaks down the tough cellular wall of mushrooms, ensuring bioavailability of their medicinal compounds.

"Chinese President Xi Jinping presented a bronze acupuncture statue on Jan. 18, 2017 to the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland, which shows acupuncture points on the human body. According to the WHO, 103 members have given approval to the practice of acupuncture and moxibustion, with 29 having enacted special statutes on traditional medicine, and 18 having included acupuncture and moxibustion treatment in their medical insurance provisions."

A study identifies a mechanism for the effect of electroacupuncture in treating hypertension. Electroacupuncture appears to increase the release of enkehpalins in the area of the brainstem that controls blood pressure.

BTW, that is not a realistic picture of the typical acupuncture session. Too many needles!

This article is misleading. It cites a study where a "Chinese herbal medicine has blasted leukaemia into submission." The herb they refer to is plum yew (Chinese: san jian shan).

Plum yew is one of many anti-cancer herbs used in Chinese medicine. But the cited study does not use this herb but rather a pharmaceutical drug that was synthesized from it.

At least, this article helps raise awareness that Chinese medicine is an integrative therapy for cancer.
