The Alternative Medicine, Acupuncture

Mar 18, 2008
In 1972 then President Richard Nixon took a trip to China, while there an unknown to the rest of the world method a healing was discovered called acupuncture. A whole new alternative healing method that's over 2000 years old comes to light which sparks interest and concerns from medical practioners. Today it is an excepted alternative method.

Acupuncture is based on the 12 invisible lines of energy that run through the body. These lines of energy or meridians, allow the flow of energy throughout the body. If a line should become blocked, they are believed to cause illnesses such as a disease.

When these meridians or lines become blocked the flow of chE can not be acheived as natural designed in the body. People with this knowledge called acupuncturists would insert small stainless steel needles into specific sensors in the body. This would unclog the flow of chE.

To improve blood circulation and the healing process, acupuncture or needle piercing methods are used to stimulate the sensors. In some instances friction, heat, suction and even eletromagnetics are used to jazz up these sensors.

For centuries Acupuncture has been used to relieve the pain of arthritis, surgery and disabling ailments. Fertility and the discomforts of pregnancy can also be helped by acupuncture. The use of acupuncture after a pregnancy, can help with the loss of pregnancy weight.

As early as 40 years ago acupuncture was not well known or believed in the western world. Although the Chinese have been practicing it for centuries, the west was at the bottom of the ladder when believing in the proven results of acupuncture used in medical practice.

This breakthough in acupuncture therapy for patients, will help doctors relieve their patients pain without the use of so many drugs. Patients that have used acupuncture for pain relief stated that they had less need for pain medication than they would have without the acupuncture therapy.

As acupuncture is now a recognized medical field, acupuncturist will need to be licensed in the state they practice. When looking for a licensed acupuncturist, you should make sure they are licensed with the local medical association.

This alternative to drugs is a great addition to any treatment being received.
