The effects of qi-gong and acupuncture on human cerebral evoked potentials and electroencephalogram
Although a number of studies on traditional Chinese medicine, such as qi-gong (QG), acupuncture (AC), moxibustion and Chinese herbal drugs, have been reported in recent years, there are few reports on human cerebral evoked potentials (EPs), especially relating only to QG and AC. In the present study, we examined the changes in EPs and electroencephalogram (EEG) by QG, and by AC stimulation to the point called "Zusanli" on the left lower leg, with one healthy male adult. 1. With regard to the effect of QG, significant changes in EP-components originated from the cortex suggest both facilitating and inhibitory effects of QG on the cortex. However, no significant changes in EP-components originated from the subcortex and no significant changes in EEG power% suggest that QG does not affect the subcortex. 2.With regard to the effects of AC, significant changes in EP-components originated from the cortex suggest facilitating and inhibitory effects of AC stimulation on the cortex. Furthermore, it is suggested that AC stimulation has few effects on the somatosensory and the visual pathways up to the cortex, while it has complicated effects on the auditory pathway up to the cortex.

What happens when someone is experiencing an anxiety? Normally, we associate such an occurrence with distinct reactions in the body. Some people feel like their anxiety must be a heart attack.

Even though it is not, still they are experiencing a miserable situation.
Anxieties normally happen as the result of a previous traumatic event. Often this event occurred during their childhood years. At that point the ability...
Can the use of suggestion and imagination improve physiological healing? Controversial studies at the Harvard Medical School have left the allopathic medical community scratching their collective heads. Two separate research projects conducted by a team led by psychologist Carol Ginandes, PhD, indicated that a significant number of patients who combined guided imagery hypnosis and traditional allopathic care tended to heal significantly faster than those who followed only an allopathic regimen. Their findings mirrored similar research involving improving the immune system of sufferers of...
Self-esteem, which is synonymous with self worth, is thought by many to refer to a combination of beliefs and values. The way I look at it, essentially self worth is directly affected by one's ability to cope and overcome the challenges in life. If you feel like you have sufficient resources in terms of finances and/or talents and abilities, you may feel like there's not anything that you can't handle. However, if those challenges are deemed to exceed your abilities, then quickly or increasingly over time you will find that your feelings of self-worth may diminish. Over time this may have a...
