Just what is acupuncture As i have heard a lot about it Over radio and to and just wondered what it was. . A. Or. Walter Tkach. President Nixon a physician who accompanied him to China reported on the operations he witnessed there in the july Issue of Quot today a he observed three patients undergoing surgery for a Cataract an ovarian cyst and a thyroid Tomy whose Only anaesthesia had been a few wire thin stainless steel Needles inserted with a twirling motion into soft tissue far from the site of the surgery. The patients were Alert during their operations complained of no discomfort and All walked away from the operating table. He wondered if All might be whisked away to an intensive care unit there to go completely to pieces from the Shock of it All but this was not the Case. All stood around to talk with the visitors had Tea and answered their questions. To the one Quot what did you feel when the surgeons started cutting on you a the response was Quot it Felt like a scratch that a most do not need any pain medication afterwards when some do. Acupuncture is used again. Patients usually enter the Hospital two Days before surgery. The surgeons who will operate act As the patients guide and care for him through his entire Hospital stay. They explain beforehand what the acupuncturist will do show him in the surgical suite How they will operate let him talk to other patients who have had the same procedure and leave the decision to him. In 95 per cent of the cases patients choose acupuncture Over conventional anaesthetics. The chinese doctors said the Only disadvantages were the fact it does not relax Muscles so they have difficulty cutting through taut muscle tissue it does not work with open heart surgery when a heart lung machine is attached and also if a surgeon pulls too vigorously on an Organ such As when removing a kidney the patients complain that Quot they do not like even the chinese admit they do not understand How or Why acupuncture works All they know is that it does work. Where once they thought Many Needles were required in Many parts of the body they have found Only a relatively few or even one will sometimes do. The Needles touch no nerves or blood vessels. The charts showing the hundreds of acupuncture Points Bear no relationship to the pathways of the nervous system. The patient with the ovarian cyst for example had a Long Needle inserted on each Side of the nose where Bone and cartilage meet and passed downward parallel to the nose. A Short Needle was pressed twirling As always straight into the flesh Between the nose and upper lip. The thyroid and Cataract patients had Needles inserted in places by and in their ears. The Cataract patient was Only asked to look steadily Down at his feet neither his head nor eyeball was anchored As the surgeon deftly removed the Cataract with a Loop Scalpel then gently quickly and artistically stitched the Eye. The surgeons operating were attractive women and Young men in their late 20s and Early 30s. Besides its use in surgery acupuncture is used together with ancient chinese herbal medicines and Western antibiotics to treat illnesses. He talked to three Active and vigorous patients who had been admitted the week before with deadly peritonitis and were cured by these methods without surgery. Or.
