Acupuncture [Halts] Malaria [good article, misleading headline]

In a study of 214 children that was conducted at Shanxi Medical University, it was discovered that acupuncture enhanced the efficacy of malaria treatments and “markedly” increased hematopoietic function thereby helping children to recover more quickly from the exhausting anemic effects of malaria. In another study conducted at the Chengdu City Wenjiang District People’s Hospital, it was concluded that a combination of acupuncture, moxibustion and drug therapy was more effective than simple drug therapy. The study found that the combination of acupuncture, moxibustion and drug therapy more readily reduced fevers, shortened the duration of malaria and improved recovery times better than the control group which received only pharmaceutical drugs.
