About This Topic

Dear colleagues and friends,

The beneficial effects of acupuncture (and auricular acupuncture) in the treatment of disease and dysfunction hence restoring health and wellbeing are well documented. The growing body of neuroimaging and neurophysiological research confirming this has been outstanding over the last two decades. It is hence important to document how acupuncture can be integrated into Women’s and Children’s health to ensure optimal outcomes for our future generations.
I invite you all to share your acupuncture knowledge in this very important group discipline.
Original research, short communications on upcoming projects or clinical trends and teaching protocols are all welcome. Please explore the link for authors (http://www.lidsen.com/journals/hg/hg-instructions-for-authors) and note the submission timing in 2019.
In Australia, we have a new discipline of medicine based on the Developmental Origin of Health and Disease (DOHAD). Acupuncture will make a significant contribution towards solving some of the many DOHAD health concerns.

Yours sincerely
Im Quah-Smith, MD, PhD.
