Acupuncture is a treatment option that many medical institutions recommend. Even the United States Military uses acupuncture to help combat the stress of battle and pain. Both the NIH and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognize acupuncture for over 100 symptoms and diseases. Acupuncture is one of the oldest holistic approaches known to man. It is believed to restore the energy flow through your body. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles in key parts of your body and is known to provide relief for a variety of health conditions.
Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese practice, has been used for generations to treat insomnia without the side effects caused by sleeping pills. It involves the placement of needles along different points along the body – also known as meridians or pathways. By reducing stress and regulating your body’s sleep cycle, your natural production of melatonin (the hormone responsible for inducing sleep) will increase and you will finally be able to rest throughout the entire night!
Boosts Your Immunity
Boosting your immunity is particularly important during the cold winter months, when your body is more exposed to viruses and bacteria. Acupuncture can be your new ally in the battle with colds and the flu. Acupuncture can increase the T-cell count (also known as the “Fighter Cells”), and it can also relieve the most bothersome flu symptoms.
Obesity is a serious and life-threatening disease that affects millions of people. Losing weight can be very challenging for some people, who are simply unable to shed the extra pounds even when they go to extreme lengths for it. This is where acupuncture steps in and helps you reach an optimal weight by improving your digestion, boosting your metabolism (thus making your body burn fat faster and more efficiently) and by reducing water retention in the soft tissues.
Acupuncture boosts and assists the liver, kidneys, and lung function to help detoxification. Acupuncture can act as a natural diuretic to clear out built up toxins and accumulations.
Balances metabolism and improves digestion
Acupuncture helps balance glucose levels in our system, assists in balancing the glandular systems, including hormones and metabolism, and curbs the appetite and reduces cravings. A sluggish metabolism will soon be off to the races! Acupuncture improves bowel function by acting as an adaptogen in the regulation parastalsis by either speeding it up or slowing it down based on appropriate acupuncture points.
