Abstract: Discontinuation of chemotherapy substituted for a course of acupuncture and electroacupuncture in 124 patients with coronary heart disease, essential hypertension and neurocirculatory dystonia resulted in a positive response of cerebral and peripheral hemodynamics, myocardial contractility and diastolic function. Myocardial hypertrophy regressed, exercise tolerance enhanced. Reflex activation of stress-limiting systems arresting excess adrenergic action on circulation is probably responsible for these phenomena.
