Stimulating acupuncture points can improve or cure diseases. In the West, acupuncture and acupressure are gradually gaining popularity. However, do meridians really exist in the human body?
The scientific community has looked at this from different perspectives. In one recent study published by Harvard Medical School, researchers were able to confirm the existence of the “pericardium meridian,” one of the 12 meridians.
Man’s Heart Issues Cured Within A Month
In January, a 28-year-old man came to the clinic of professor Jonathan Liu, a registered acupuncturist.
This young man and his entire family had always been Liu’s patients. He used to have a lot of energy and loved rock climbing. Not long ago, he contracted COVID-19. It started with a fever, cough, and a sore throat. After he spent a while resting, most of his respiratory symptoms subsided. However, he was stuck with lingering chest congestion and fluttering heartbeats (palpitations). When he exercised, his palpitations became more obvious.
The heart discomfort made it difficult for him to rock climb and left him distressed.
After checking his conditions, Liu found that the young man not only experienced palpitations during exercise but also had symptoms of psychological tension. Liu decided to treat him by starting from his pericardium meridian. Liu needled his pericardium meridian and prescribed Chinese herbal medicine. In little more than two weeks, the young man’s heart symptoms were cured, and he was able to rock climb again.
Why were his heart problems cured by treating his pericardium meridian with acupuncture?
