Abstract: Course acupuncture with silver needles in auricular and corporal
zones with additional effects of acupuncture zones in microneedle pressing
produced a hypotensive action in 360 patients with initial essential
hypertension. This effect registered in 82.1 of the patients exposed was
not the only positive response as there was also a decline in hyperkinetic
syndrome with a significant fall in energy consumption, reduction in
circadian excretion of adrenaline, inhibition in the activity of plasma
renin, normalization of lipid metabolism.
The hypotensive effect in the
majority of the patients persisted for 12 months. Hyperactivity of plasma
renin, hypokinetic and extremely hyperkinetic hemodynamic types set
limitations for the method efficacy.
