A comparative study of electroacupuncture at Zhongliao (BL33) and other acupoints for overactive bladder symptoms

Likun Yang,Yang Wang,Qian Mo,Zhishun Liu

Frontiers of Medicine 2017, Volume 11, Issue 1,   Pages 129-136 doi: 10.1007/s11684-016-0491-6

Abstract:

Electroacupuncture (EA) at Zhongliao (BL33) can improve the symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB), such as urinary frequency, urgency, and incontinence. However, its performance compared with other acupoints remains unclear. This study investigated the effects of EA at BL33 with deep needling on rats with OAB by detecting urodynamics in eight groups: no intervention group, D-BL33 group (deep needling at BL33), S-BL33 group (shallow needling at BL33), non-acupoint group (needling at the non-acupoint next to BL33), Weizhong (BL40) group, Sanyinjiao (SP6) group, Tongtian (BL7) group, and Hegu (LI4) group. Results revealed that EA at BL33 with deep needling, BL40, and SP6 prolonged the intercontraction interval (ICI) of rats with OAB (P=0.001, P=0.005, P=0.046, respectively, post-treatment vs. post-modeling). Furthermore, the change in ICI from post-modeling in the D-BL33 group was significantly greater than those of the no intervention and other EA groups (all P<0.01). Significantly shortened vesical micturition time (VMT) and elevated maximum detrusor pressure (MDP) were also observed in the D-BL33 group (P=0.017 and P=0.024, respectively, post-treatment vs. post-modeling). However, no statistically significant differences in the changes of VMT and MDP from post-modeling were observed between D-BL33 and the other EA groups. In conclusion, EA at BL33 with deep needling may inhibit acetic-acid-induced OAB more effectively.

A Dialogue With the Ancient and Reflection on the Interpretation of History of Bian Que and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Fu Youfeng

Strategic Study of CAE 2005, Volume 7, Issue 12,   Pages 7-16

Abstract:

Based on the description of epidemic diseases in the chapter of “The Story of Bian Que” in Records of Historian, the author has analyzed and explored the truthfulness of its background data and the possibility of the plague spreading at that time from both macro and micro angles. The symptoms of plague including chills and fever, the digestive symptoms and the symptoms in central nerve system made great influence on the formation of some doctrines in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) such as exopathic heat disease doctrine, internal injury of spleen and stomach doctrine and epidemic febrile disease doctrine. The course of exogenous febrile disease was similar to that of the plague, thus the theory of six meridians was formed. According to above phenomena, the author has explored the effect on the initial medical theory, primitive religion and culture due to the spreading of epidemic diseases from the angles of epidemiology, the theory of images and figures, complicated thought ways depending, as well as archaeological studies. Then the hypothesis of medicine originated from epidemic diseases was proposed. The author also put forward some opinions on the relationship between epidemic diseases spreading and traditional education of TCM, sustained development of TCM education, as well as the integration of TCM and WM.
