The manuscript is reporting the results of I Ching Balance Acupuncture (ICBA) treatment applied in a deep vein thrombosis patient along with standard treatment. ICBA is fully based on I Ching (Yi Jing or Book of Changes). A hypothesis regarding the mechanism of action of ICBA has been made in the manuscript. It is based on the obtained results, principles of the Book of Changes and published
... [Show full abstract] literature. The efficacy of ICBA is best characterized by the Chinese saying, which translates "put a pole under the sun, and you should immediately see its shadow".
Perhaps the scientific importance of the case report is minor. Yet, it adds another tiny cut to previously reported ICBA effects.

Introduction: Surgical menopause is associated with symptoms that can significantly affect a woman's quality of life (QOL). These symptoms include migraines, insomnia, and depression.
Case Presentation: A 45-year-old Caucasian female presented herself at the acupuncture clinic. Fourteen years before that, the patient was diagnosed with ovary carcinoma, underwent ovariectomy, and was prescribed

Methods: The outcome measures included the intensity, duration, and frequency of migraines, insomnia, and depression, as well as the QOL. The outcome measures were estimated monthly throughout the treatment period. Each outcome measure was rated using a numeric scale from 0 to 10, in which 0 was defined as “the lowest possible” and 10 as “the worst imaginable”. At baseline, the patient rated the intensity, duration, and frequency of each complaint as 10. The patient was treated with 60- minute I Ching Balance Acupuncture (ICBA) sessions once a week for seven months. Results: The acupuncture treatment did not cause any adverse events, pain, or discomfort. The outcome measures for migraines, insomnia, and depression decreased to a great extent. Also, the patient reported a massive improvement in the QOL. The improvement in the QOL was inversely related to the intensity, duration, and frequency of the patient’s complaints throughout the acupuncture treatment period. Conclusions: The patient reported a considerable improvement in all the outcome measures. The patient completed the treatment after feeling a great improvement in the QOL. Additional, larger-scale studies are warranted to investigate the effects of ICBA. View full-text Last Updated: 06 Mar 2019
