Preparation of Acid Bentonite Paste and Its Stimulation to Acupoint

LAN-XIA ZHAO, TENG-YOU WEI

Abstract


Prepare the paste with acid bentonite as the main functional ingredient and use it for acupoint stimulation. Adopt single factor experiment and regulate the ratio of disperse liquid composition and acidic bentonite to prepare the paste with good stability and low viscosity; Carry out clinical acupoint stimulation test and investigate the efficiency of using paste by detecting the temperature of acupoint changed before and after stimulation. Experiment results show that the optimum formula of paste is as follows: glycerinum (20.7%), sorbitol solution (41.3%), propylene glycol (20.7%), GMS (0.8%), HEC (0.5%) and acid montmorillonite (16%). At this time, the paste has a relative viscosity of about 2800 cP, which exhibits uniform and fine texture and is easy to be painted without irritation; Moreover, there are also highly significant changes on temperature triggered by stimulating Zusanli, Quchi, Quze, Waiguan and Sanyinjiao. Because of good stability and proper viscosity, acid bentonite paste has good stimulation to the acupoint of human body.
