Acupuncture has been a widely-accepted treatment in the country for many of years now. Originating from China almost 2000 years ago, Acupuncture treatment is based on the studies of the energy pathways of the body. It is believed that sicknesses and disease are caused by energy blocks in the body which prevents energy from naturally healing the affected parts. Every human has a natural healing mechanism and disruptions in the energy system impede this natural healing.
As with many other treatments, acupuncture does have some complications if not handled properly by a professional acupuncturist. Since the knowledge of where to hit those points in your body can never be simply learned overnight, having an acupuncture treatment without professional usage is strongly discouraged.
Acupuncture has been reported to have treated many kinds of different illnesses such as asthma allergies and infertility. In this article, we’ll be discussing how does acupuncture help with allergies.
How Does Acupuncture Help Allergies?
The goal of acupuncture treatments is to stimulate certain parts of the body with needles in order to gain a therapeutic effect. Professionals in medical acupuncture only use sterile and clean acupuncture needles for the treatment as improperly cleaned needles can even transmit diseases from one patient to another. That is why it is important for patients to receive the highest-quality of treatment possible.
Childhood asthma is very common in Frisco TX. It is commonly caused by two triggers, cold and allergens. It is sometimes very hard to diagnose the precise cause of asthma as two or more causes can be present in one child. Even if a parent is careful with what the child is exposed to, asthma can still be triggered.
To answer the question, “How does acupuncture help allergies?” in traditional Chinese medicine, asthma is said to be caused by the disorder of the lungs but also of the stomach and the kidneys. This coincides with the fact that man pressure points that can treat asthma are located in the lung, kidney, and stomach meridians. Meridians are the path in which life-energy known as “qi” (pronounced as CHEE) flows. The points along the bladder meridian are also treated since the bladder is considered important for the health of all the body organs.
Acupuncture is very effective when used as a preventive measure in asthma. This means that it is most effective even before the asthma attacks and is also effective in treating initial asthma attacks. That is why asthma is listed as one of the many illnesses acupuncture can treat in a report from the World Health Organization (WHO). The list cites 43 common illnesses ranging from Neurological problems to allergy problems.
A certain study from the University of Vienna showed that 70% percent of the patients suffering from asthma showed improvement after undergoing acupuncture treatment continuously for 10 weeks. It was also shown that subsequent visits to the doctor were also reduced as the patients reported immediate relief after the treatment.
No doubt, acupuncture has always been a proven and effective treatment for asthma throughout the centuries. If you have a condition that you want to be treated, don’t hesitate to ask a professional acupuncturist today!
