Vietnam invents world’s first mugwort injection machine 4:07 PM,5/18/2015

A Vietnamese herb doctor has successfully invented a machine which treats common diseases with mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) leaves – a medicinal herb common in Vietnam.

Mugwort is well known to every Vietnamese as a kind of precious medicinal herb which, with its hemostatic and analgesic effects, can help treat many diseases.

Mugwort leaves are available all year round and the plants can be grown easily at household gardens.

Pham Thi Chan’s, a herbalist, said she believes that it would be wonderful to use folk remedies with the support of modern technologies.

After 14 years of working hard, Chan has created a machine which injects distillation of mugwort  into important spots in the human body in the best way.

According to oriental medicine, injecting the spots, or pressure points, can help treat diseases. This is an effective therapy which does not bring side effects like western medicine. Acupuncture has existed as part of oriental medicine for thousands of years.

Chan’s machine’s operating principle is as follows: when mugwort pills are put into a combustion chamber of the machine, they will instantly produce mugwort oil extract.

The oil extract will be driven by a wind generating system in the machine to another chamber where the high pressure will help thrust the oil out of the machine, targeting directly the pressure points in human body. The oil extract will be easily absorbed into human body and bring effects.

As the machine is small, neat and portable, it can be used by patients themselves. They just need to direct the machine into necessary pressure points. What pressure points to choose will depend on what diseases they incur.

One of the outstanding features of the machine invented by Chan is that with the modern combustion technique, the heat from it will not cause burning points on the human body.

The mugwort injection machine has been used in treating colds, backaches, headaches, insomnia and sciatic nerve pains.

Chan’s invention has been highly appreciated by scientists which has helped attract attention from high-ranking state officials.

The invention was first introduced at the forum on renovating science and technology research for the sake of low-income earners held in late 2014 in Hanoi.

Nguyen Ba Quang, deputy director of the Central Acupuncture Institute, confirmed that the machine has been used to treat hundreds of patients with no accidents reported.

“The effects are very good, while patients feel comfortable,” he said. “It is necessary to apply the therapy widely not only in Vietnam, but all over the world.”
