Acupuncture to Foster Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
Acupuncture can be useful across the life span to prevent disease and encourage a sense of well-being. The practice of acupuncture for health prevention and promotion is well-established in China. Recently, the National Institute of Health and the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health noted the advancement of their prevention research portfolio. Acupuncture as a complementary health treatment can improve wellness and our journal Medical Acupuncture is publishing a special issue on this topic.
Editor-in-Chief Richard Niemtzow, MD invites you to contribute your research on the use of acupuncture in preventing disease and fostering health promotion. If your paper is accepted for publication, it will be included in the special issue and promoted globally. The issue will provide a broad overview of the current state-of-the-art in the U.S. and abroad and will offer practical recommendations on how to administer acupuncture for health prevention in various age groups.
All research papers on this topic are welcome. Planned topics will include, but will not be limited to:
- Pediatric areas of prevention: in children, using acupuncture to improve outcomes for ADHD, poor appetite, asthma-cough and allergies.
- Prevention of Disease: the status of acupuncture in the prevention of disease and its evolution in adults: hypertension, coronary disease, GI, mental health, addiction, alcohol, fatigue, lassitude, nausea and vomiting in post-operative and chemotherapy patients, radiation-induced xerostomia, migraine prevention, urinary tract infection, respiratory disease, and stroke.
