Acupuncture
'works for headaches'

Acupuncture

Traditional acupuncture is effective at preventing headaches, a scientific review finds - but so is a sham form.

The Cochrane Review reviewed 33 separate trials into acupuncture and its so-called "sham" counterpart.
The latter also involves the insertion of needles - but not into traditional "energy points".

The scientist leading the review said the results showed that putting needles into particular locations might not be that important.

Acupuncture is still regarded as a "complementary" therapy, but is increasingly being viewed as a potential mainstream treatment for certain conditions, such as chronic pain.

The endorsement by the Cochrane Collaboration is likely to lead to further calls for it to be made more widely available on the NHS.
The traditional explanation of its effects involves tapping into a network of "meridians" around the body to regulate the flow of an energy called "chi". Acupuncture points are located at various positions along these meridians. However, many modern acupuncture specialists believe that the insertion of needles actually cause subtle changes in the nervous system and brain activity which can be beneficial - and place needles in other parts of the body rather than concentrating solely on traditional acupuncture points.

The Cochrane reviews involved a total of 6,736 patients, who were given acupuncture to prevent either mild to moderate "tension" headaches, or migraine attacks. Following a course of at least eight weeks, acupuncture patients suffered fewer headaches than those given only painkillers.

'Not a sham'

Acupuncture was also superior to preventative drug treatments in migraine, the reviewers concluded. However, acupuncture relying on non-traditional needle positions was just as good as the traditional variety in preventing tension headaches, and almost as good in the migraine patients.
Dr Klaus Linde, from the Centre for Complementary Medicine Research at the Technical University of Munich in Germany, said that much of the benefit for both might be due to a "placebo effect", in which the experience itself of being treated can produce results independently of the effects of the treatment.

He said: "Much of the clinical benefit of acupuncture might be due to non-specific needling effects and powerful placebo effects, meaning that the selection of specific needle points may be less important than many practicioners have traditionally argued."
Dr Mike Cummings, medical director of the British Medical Acupuncture Society, welcomed the research.

He said that the differences between so-called "true" and "fake" acupuncture remained controversial within the profession.
"I think that, quite literally, many practioners have missed the point in the past.

"We certainly don't call what we do 'sham' acupuncture, as we believe there is growing evidence for a mechanism behind what we do. "However, we still don't fully understand what is happening when needles are inserted, although these reviews suggest that for certain conditions, it is effective."

 Cleaner Environment 
Assalam-O-Alaikum
Hope you all are having good time enjoying the last few days of the passing winter season.
As discussed in the last article, we have to be the change that we want to see in our world. When we step out of our home, the littered streets and public areas are an unpleasant site. Garbage scattered on the streets is not only displeasing to eyes, but its smell is also repulsive. Further, it cause lots of hygiene issues. We all wish to see clean roads, tidy public places like gardens, shopping bazaars etc. To do so we have to take the initiative to bring the change.
Often I see people throwing away wrappers, peels, left over food bits out of the car window. This habit not only litters the road but also cause threat to others because it attracts stray animals to the road where they can be killed or injured by passing vehicles or can cause accidents involving human life as well. Donít ever throw food or litter out of a car window.  Keep a bag with yourself and collect these in it. Discard them off properly in dustbins on reaching home or in garbage cans placed on roadsides.
It is easy to just toss garbage on the ground rather than disposing it off properly. But that is not the way of civilized people. We all need to arouse civic sense in ourselves. My heart cries out when I see young boys tossing out disposable glass bottles out of their cars for fun and enjoy the site of it breaking into pieces on the road. Broken glass can hurt others on road. Not every pedestrian has full shoes on. The tiny glass pieces can hurt the feet of people on foot. It also is a threat to animals on street. So never break glass jars and bottles in the street.
During my visit to Pakistan, we used to go for evening stroll in a nearby ground. There, I often saw a teenager who used to come there for a walk. He carried a bag with him. Whenever he came across any candy wrappers, papers, cans and such litter, he would pick it up and put it in the bag he carried and before exiting the ground he would throw the bag in the garbage drum No one had asked that boy for this task. It was just his civic sense, his desire to contribute to the society that he was doing this service. And he inspired me to do the same.
So friends, we donít have to be grownup elders to be able to play our role. Each of us can do something or the other for our society to look cleaner and better. To start with, never throw garbage on street, carry a bag for collecting bottles, papers and gum and candy wrappers along the road or in the ground when you go for a walkÖ These small deeds will go a long way in making our environment clean.
Till next time, Allah Hafiz.
