Example text

10 reported that electrical stimulation (2 mA, 2 ms, 4 Hz) of the Zusanli (St36) acupoint elicited significant decreases in arterial blood pressure and heart rate, when the tip of the needle was close to branches of the peroneal nerve. Cutting the sciatic nerve or paralysing the animal with succinylcholine or gallamine abolished these responses, whereas direct stimulation of the intact peroneal nerve still elicited a decrease in arterial blood pressure and heart rate in paralysed animals. Their results suggested that the decrease of arterial blood pressure and heart rate induced by acupuncture was due to the activation of motor fibres resulting in muscle contraction and subsequent excitation of muscle and/or joint receptors, which elicited an inhibitory reflex.

Then, is the “meridian theory” wrong? 2,3 How to explain the effect of acupuncture and “De Qi”?
