Acupuncture is an ancient time tested medicine over 3000 years old and available for our use in the modern world. Natural medicine can successfully treat and resolve many chronic and acute diseases from the root, rather than just trimming the branches by suppressing the symptoms. If you do not find the root, the branches will continue to grow, like a weed blooming through concrete.
It is believed that there are energetic rivers that connect our bodies from head to toe and connect our skin to our internal organs. These rivers are called the meridian system. In our meridians, qi (chi), electricity, life force, or however you conceptualize this energy, courses through in a specific flow and direction. Each meridian has a specific set of points and each point has a set of functions and indications that will influence the physiology of the body. These acupoints will reprogram the mind-body to its most optimal functioning. By clearing the energetic pathway, we can restore the proper flow of energy and prompt the body to heal itself.
When the qi energy stagnates or becomes obstructed, this is what causes pain, pathology and the beginnings of disease in the body. Small aches and pains gone untreated can eventually turn in to chronic pain issues. Occasional sadness and insomnia can easily bloom into full blown anxiety and depression. Poor digestion is an early indicator of gastrointestinal imbalance and systemic inflammation. An irregular cycle can be a warning sign of poor reproductive health and premature failing fertility. And so on...
In fact, there is concrete scientific evidence as to why and how acupuncture works! We know that when an acupuncture needle is inserted, there are measured physiological changes that happen in the body. The microtrauma triggers a healing histamine response in the body. Blood vessels vasodialate to increase circulation to areas of concern. Healing chemicals of the brain are released; our natural painkillers and mood stabilizers such as endorphins begin to take effect. Nerve endings are stimulated and pain impulses to the brain are interrupted, causing a very powerful analgesic effect. The result is a body that is better equipped to manage it's own symptoms, a decreased perception of illness, pain or discomfort and a greater sense of well being.
You can integrate natural medicine into your health management regimen to compliment and enhance your existing western medical treatment. Find out where your imbalances lie and correct them before they transform into major disorders. Pay attention to the signs your body tells you as they can be precursors to poor health and eventually disease.
