Abstract

The research has as a goal the investigation of the bioelectrical
behaviour of the acupunctural areas in order to obtain a scientific substantiation of the correspondence
between the extreme eastern medical tradition and the academical medicine. It is
obvious that the Chinese traditional medicine knows a certain mechanism of ensurance of
homeostasis of the organisms, a mechanism represented, according to the Chinese medical
tradition, by the net of acupuncture points and meridians. The experimental data presented in
this paper lead to the discovery of the fact that this net works as the fourth system of
integration, the electrical regulator one. The maintenance of the internal homeostasis of the
superior organisms and their adaptation to the environment is ensured by the neuro endocrine
and circulatory systems through a mechanism described by Selye under the name of the
Uncertain General Syndrome of Adaptation represented by the hypothalamo hypophyso
corticoadrenal axis. The evolution of these systems and of their mechanisms can be supervised
on the basis of the cortisole concentration. The research emphasized the direct proportionality
between the cortisone levels and the variation of the electrical values of the acupuncture points,
a fact that demonstrates the involvement of the net of acupuncture points and meridians in the
maintenance processes of the homeostasis, control, adjustment and adaptation of the living
organisms. Additionally, the analysis of the bioelectrical behavior of the acupuncture areas led
to the conclusion that the morpho functional substrate of this net is the conjunctive tissue.
The physical chemical properties of the interstitial connective tissue assures its working as an
electro regulator system on one side and as a harmonization agent of the neuro endocrine
and circulatory systems on the other side, this aspect being to be developed in a future paper.
