Since the 1950's, patients suffering with schizophrenia were automatically treated with antipsychotic drugs. Although it seems that antipsychotic drugs are effective to treat such mental disorder, the drugs undeniably have adverse side effects that make schizophrenics suffer more rather than being treated.
Due to the unfavorable side effects that manifested from these drugs, studies and researches have been conducted to find healthier alternatives to treat schizophrenia. One of the procedures being considered was traditional Chinese Medicine or acupuncture.
Schizophrenia is often described as a mental incapacity that involves the breakdown of a person's mental processes and the capacity to interact emotionally.
Common manifestations of most schizophrenics usually include paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, and disoriented speech and thinking skills also deemed as occupational and social dysfunction. Symptoms of schizophrenia can occur at any age, but usually during young adulthood.
While antipsychotic drugs try to suppress the dopamine activity of a patient, traditional Chinese medicine on the other hand employs a holistic approach.
Acupuncture is an ancient healing art that originated from China thousands of years ago. It has been proven effective to heal mental disorders, one of which is schizophrenia, among other illnesses. Aside from lesser to even zero side effects, acupuncture is also more affordable as compared to the conventional drugs sold by pharmaceutical companies.
Acupuncture was initially performed to ease pain brought about by various illnesses, which means it was used for anesthetic purposes. The procedure uses specialized hair-like needles to stimulate the acupuncture points located in the pathways, also known as the meridians, where the body's vital energy circulates.
Each acupuncture point in the body is associated with a specific organ function in the body's system, thus aside from the holistic approach, authorized acupuncture practitioners also know which particular acupuncture point needs focus to heal a certain health disorder.
Aside from treating schizophrenia and all its manifestations, acupuncture also helps rejuvenate the body's organ systems as a whole. The procedure somehow gives a breath of fresh air to patients suffering from schizophrenia.
Among the studies conducted to determine the efficacy of acupuncture in treating schizophrenia, one conducted randomized controlled trials to determine how acupuncture would fare against antipsychotic drugs, or if the combination of both treatments will have better results.
