Eye disease is prevalent in America, affecting millions of people. 9.1 million people suffer from Macular Degeneration and that is expected to increase to 17.8 million by 2050. Almost 7.7 million adults over 40 have Diabetic Retinopathy. More than 2.7 million people age 40 and up have Glaucoma. All these numbers are projected to increase. It is likely that you or someone you know will be affected by a degenerative eye disease. Research conducted in China and Denmark has shown that acupuncture may be the only current treatment that provides relief from these conditions.
AcuNova, invented by John Boel from Denmark, (www.acunova.dk), is a type of acupuncture treatment that is showing remarkable results for people with these particular eye diseases. For the thousands of patients with eye diseases who have received this form of acupuncture treatment, 80% respond to treatment, depending on the type of eye disease.
For this discovery in 2000 John Boel received the award "Acupuncturist of the Century" by the International Acupuncture Organization Medizina Alternativa as the only acupuncturist ever to achieve that prestigious title.
