Top Insights For 2017 On Indispensable Factors For Acupuncture Alicante


By Jeff Bloom (Lhasa OMS) August 21 , 2018 Acupuncture Advocacy Industry News Acupuncture Advocacy: Treating the Whole Person with Fragmented Diagnoses While it is exciting to witness the stages of integration, the dominance of the Western medicine model over the Chinese or Asian Medicine model is apparent in the world of diagnosis and pattern discrimination.  Even in private practice, licensed acupuncturists must often placate to Western diagnoses because patients frequently seek the Asian medical paradigm after a series of Western diagnoses and treatment failures.  The design flaw of using a snapshot of lab values with signs and symptoms to dictate a Western diagnosis, to be controlled or managed by a pharmaceutical, includes the illusion that favorable changes to lab values indicates an improvement of health.  The drug itself is often toxic and generates disease while not addressing the underlying cause of the original health complaint.  Often, there is not a complaint but a finding after a routine checkup or screening that renders a person suddenly a sick patient.  A major flaw is the isolation and focus on one area or system of the body.  Health, illness, and disease are neither static nor isolated. The genius behind the Chinese/Asian medical model is pattern discernment and differential diagnosis aimed at treating the chief complaint and the underlying cause.  This is thought of as treating the branch and the root.  This results in a combination of patterns and differential diagnoses that generates treatment principles.  For example, Asthma is Western diagnosis.  The Chinese counterpart is Xiao Chuan. According to Dr. Google, who has collected a snap shot of biomedical understandings, Asthma is a very common condition resulting in about 3 million cases each year in which one’s airways become inflamed, narrow, swell, and produces extra mucus rendering in difficult breathing.  Dr. Google gathered information from credible sources such as Mayo Clinic, John Hopkins, and the Centers for Disease Control that dictates this condition requires a medical diagnosis often supported by labs or images and that the condition is chronic, lasting for years or forever.  It can interfere with daily life or be life threatening, thus managed by a range of medications such as steroids, formoterol, salmeterol, and tiotropium.  Most common side effects include acne, glaucoma, high blood pressure, weight gain, diabetes, tachycardia, tremor, excessive sweating, anxiety, insomnia, agitation, dizziness, sinus infection, migraine headaches, dry mouth, throat irritation, and an increased risk of heart attacks, stroke, and cardiovascular death. According to Chinese medicine, Xiao Chuan is also a common condition.  Xiao patterns include short rapid breathing and wheezing while Chuan patterns include significantly labored breathing.  While often seen together, these patterns are differentiated by very unlike presentations save the root of development.  The basic concept of Xiao is phlegm lodged in the lung.  While this is similar to mucous, phlegm involves a very different pathogeneses.  There is also an understanding that other external factors that do not have a biomedical equivalent, and internal factors of emotion, diet, and stress on a weak system.  One of the key differences in Chinese differentiation is the involvement of other organs than just lung; specifically, kidney and possibly liver/spleen.  Combined with the factors above, there could be phlegm and cold in the lung, or phlegm and heat in the lung.  There could also be deficiency in the kidney and or lung.  Treatment is aimed at reducing acute factors and boosting organs during remission.  Treatments mainly include herbs and acupuncture that do not render adverse side-effects, are cost effective, and strategically geared towards resolution versus management. In typical integrated situations, the biomedical phenomenon of protocol treating a targeted area dominates the individualized whole person approach.  While the success of treating veterans has opened the door to treating other than pain, the authorizations to treat a specific area with a specific diagnosis illustrates this challenge.  Many licensed acupuncture providers want to embed logic by adding diagnoses and treating other areas of the body.  However, adjudicators of the claims simply want the authorized treatment area to match what was treated in the medical note.  Administrators and many medical providers cannot be expected to understand that sometimes to treat knee pain, licensed acupuncturists may pragmatically insert acupuncture needles on the sides of the spine at L4.  Although we can explain this in a logical biomedical manner, there is a growing demand to have licensed acupuncturists add body area modifiers to acupuncture and other modality treatment codes.

Un vehículo eléctrico enchufado a uno de los puntos de carga de Alicante en una imagen de archivo. Alcoy cuenta con siete en sus calles dentro del proyecto «Smart City»; Orihuela tiene previstos otros seis en su casco urbano y en la playa; y San Vicente cuenta con ellos en el campus de la Universidad de Alicante . En cuanto a ciudades como Elche, a pesar de ser la más numerosa en cifras, no existen puntos de recarga públicos pero sí en zonas comerciales para que los usen los conductores. Cada vez las ciudades se suman a colocar puntos de recarga que en un primer momento son gratuitos. Desde la AUVE apuntan que «no queremos que sean gratis sino pagar por las recargas», lo que puede animar a más municipios a sumarse porque «es mucho más limpio para las ciudades». Con todo, desde la entidad apuntan a que se ha producido un salto cualitativo en este tipo de vehículos. «Los de ahora tienen mucha autonomía; llegan a los 300 kilómetros y pueden tener un punto de recarga en tu propia casa». Además, entre las ventajas destacan el ahorro para el bolsillo: «antes llenaba dos o tres veces el depósito al mes por una media de 200 euros; ahora con 20 euros de luz al mes tengo listo el coche», apunta Company quien adquirió su vehículo haces tres años. En la actualidad, comprar este tipo de vehículos cuenta con ventajas fiscales en municipios a la hora de pagar el Impuesto de Circulación. Así, estas bonificaciones en las principales ciudades de la provincia oscilan del 25 al 50% de rebaja para los híbridos y del 50 al 75% para los eléctricos.
