In resent years, we have treated hyperlipaemia with acupuncture.

Reducing method of stimulation usually was used in acupuncture process which was about 15 minutes and 10 therapy constituted a course of treatment. The patient blood lipids was measured at beginning and after acupuncture.
However the treatment was applied according to the theory of TCM. As we know that those acupoint of Sanyinjiao, Zsuanli, Neiguan, Lieque, Yanglingquan and Fenlong are very effective of building up the spleen , dissolving the spleen, balance the dampness, removing the stagnation of Liver “Qi” , etc.
The result as follows: Blood lipids of 73 cases were decreased among the 82 cases, about 89 % of the patient, lowered the level of cholestrol very much.
