Statement: The Scientific Nature of Acupuncture is Undeniable

World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies Statement: The Scientific Nature of Acupuncture is Undeniable

 

Recently an oversea online encyclopedia has branded acupuncture as “pseudoscience”, and it has sparked off strong protest in global communities of traditional Chinese medicine physicians and practitioners. World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies is deeply concerned about it. To brand acupuncture as “pseudoscience” is incorrect and the scientific nature of acupuncture is certainly undeniable.

 

Traditional Chinese medicine is a medical science that was formed and developed over thousands of years, contributing a great deal to the procreation and prosperity of the Chinese nation and civilizations across the world. Thousands of years of practice has proved that acupuncture is of significant efficacy and wide application in treating disease.

 

In recent decades, the clinical effectiveness of acupuncture has been proved through abundant scientific researches. The World Health Organization acknowledges the safety and efficacy of acupuncture, which is safe and effective in treating about one hundred diseases. About 103 Member States now have recognized the use of acupuncture, and in 29 of which legislation and regulations about traditional medicine are established, and in 18 Member States acupuncture can be covered by health insurance. There is no doubt that the scientific nature of acupuncture has been proved through practice and research.  

 

Hereby, the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies appeals to relevant sides to respect the fact that the scientific nature of acupuncture is undeniable, and to recognize acupuncture from the objective, impartial and scientific perspective in order to make it contribute more to human health.
