A few needles for a cure?

I have come across websites, videos and posts about acupuncture being used to treat Stargardt's Disease and it's sister Retinitis Pigmentosa. From my understanding, centres offering acupuncture as a treatment use a form called micro acupuncture and microcurrent stimulation (that just sounds scary). The first thing I thought of was a whole bunch of long, skinny needles being poked into your eyes. Thankfully, this torture does not exist (yet). The microacupuncure component involves needles in the hands and feet, and the microcurrent stimulation involves electrodes being placed in precise areas around the eyes. It has been claimed that this treatment has improved the vision of Stargardt's patients.

There's also a series of videos on YouTube from a Turkish doctor claiming he has treated patients using this technique. I must admit I am very skeptical as I have a very scientific based head and always need evidence for how such a treatment can work. For me, it's fine to post a a huge declaration that some radical treatment is working to cure visual loss, but you need to tell me HOW!? Isn't that the basis of knowledge. This is the result, and this is how it was achieved.

I am going to find a practice here in Sydney that offers this treatment and give it a go and see if it works for me. I also plan to do more research. Maybe the answer is already here?!

  8. My problem with herpes has caused me many traumas, especially in my sex life.
    I was so afraid of infecting my boyfriend, I suffered the embarrassment
    of visiting dermatologists queries hundreds of times.
    Unfortunately, they did not find a definitive solution to my problem.
    The solution came from the least expected place. By reading in a specialised forum on the subject,
    mentioned a method for eliminating herpes. Many people had tried, with excellent and quick results.
    I had nothing to lose so I decided to use this method to eliminate my herpes.
    spent six weeks using this method and my herpes completely disappeared.
    I recommend this method to all people who want to eliminate the herpes from their body forever,
