Acupuncture for Nausea
At Mayo Clinic, a neurosurgeon is using acupuncture to help people who suffer from nausea and vomiting after many types of operations.
Dr. Ronald Reimer traveled to China to study Acupuncture. He describes it as working in this fashion: needles in the skin stimulate pathways that travel through meridians and peripheral nerves to the spinal cord and brain. This is also often coupled with low frequency electrical stimulation. This causes endorphin levels to rise and other chemicals to change, unblocking trapped energy and restoring it's flow. Dr. Reimer says results vary, but most patients can expect relief from symptoms soon after treatment starts.
