Moxibustion and Modern Science  

Modern science supports the theory of moxibustion and if we want to give a simple answer of the question that how does the modern science see the moxibustion then we get to know that meridians are like optical fibers which transmit infrared radiation. The outcomes of an experiment conducted in Fudan University shows that a high transparency is measured at the axis of the collagenous  fiber in Gallbladder meridian. The stomach transparency is found 62% at the wavelength of 9-20 macrons. The noted difference was about 240 times between the lights among the two vertical axis of the meridians. When the heated area of the moxibustion cools down, it shows the similar outcomes which you get form the acupuncture. It’s through qi not the direct incoherent heat comes out from the burning process. Moxibustion at acupoints qi hai (Ren 6) and tian shu (ST 25) inhibited the expression of IL-1 (beta) and IL-a6m RNA in experiments on rats with ulcerative colitis.

The other experiments include the impacts of moxibustion on arthritic rats which showed positive results in lightening up inflammation and removed swelling and redness.
