    Default Acupuncture Beats Injected Morphine For Pain: Groundbreaking Study

    An amazing new study has found that acupuncture, the ancient practice of using needles to stimulate bodily self healing, is more effective than intravenous morphine for pain.

    A truly groundbreaking study published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine titled, “Acupuncture vs intravenous morphine in the management of acute pain in the ED,” reveals that acupuncture -- one of the oldest techniques to treat pain -- is more effective, faster in relieving pain, and with less adverse effects, than intravenous morphine.

    The study was conducted over the course of a 1-year period at the Fattouma Bourguiba University Hospital in Tunisia, a tertiary care facility with over 100,000 Emergency Department (ED) visits per year.

    Color me skeptical about this too. I've experienced both. Morphine is virtually instant and when someone is in excruciating pain, it's a real blessing. I had acupuncture while in China and it had absolutely no effect. Yes, it was authentic — done in a Chinese medicine hospital. I wonder how much depends on belief. A close friend underwent acupuncture (on her earlobe) to quit smoking, and lost all desire for cigarettes, forever. So there's that.

    Acupuncture to quit smoking ( in the earlobe) didn't help me many years ago. It does seem to help some and not others. Maybe it is more useful for long term, chronic pain, when you don't want to take morphine for any length of time.
