Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis:Kidney-Du-Brain Axis (KIDUBA) Acupuncture Protocol

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex autoimmune disease mediated by an immune response to central nervous system antigens. Conventional immunomodulatory therapies are limited to relieve many of the symptoms, such as weakness, pain and depression, but probably cause side effects. Acupuncture, the most popular approach of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) could improve the quality of life (QoL), fatigue, and pain, and alleviate the side-events of immunosuppresants. The essay summarized the publications and experiences from the leading acupuncture masters in China and clinical trails on acupuncture treatment for MS patients. The review concluded that in Chinese Medicine (CM), the Kidney-DU-Brain Axis (KIDUBA) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of MS. Fundamental acupoints including GB39, SP6, DU4, BL23, SI3, Sishencong are recommended according to the principle of supplementing kidney and marrow and opening blockages in Du channel and the brain. Besides, acupuncture treatment for the side effects of immunomodulatory medications are covered in the protocol.
