Acupuncture has been proven to help our body produce more growth hormones, according to research done by Dr. L. Debreni of Mohacs Hospital in Hungary. This research used Electrical acupuncture on the ear points to see how the acupuncture can influence the growth hormone and stress hormone level. The result shows that a 20-minute electrical acupuncture stimulation at certain ear points makes a healthy women produce more growth hormones, but the cortsol-stimulating hormone did not change, which means the stress level is not increasing. The growth hormone helps our skin produce collagen IV and makes our muscles stronger, while the stress hormone such as cortisol can break down our muscles. That is why after a person going through a big stress, he/she will look 10 years older than before.
Growth hormones can also help our body to repair the wear and tear. When you sleep at the right time for 6 to 8 hours, your body will produce optimal level of growth hormones. Using acupuncture to help your body to produce more growth hormones is better than using injection of growth hormones, which can raise your blood pressure or stimulate the prostate growth because the synthetic growth hormones cannot be adjusted to the right level by your own feedback system. Electrical acupuncture can also help your brain produce more endorphin, serotonin and dopamine so you can feel happy and look younger at the same time.
