Detox by Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most widely tested and researched in USA, which is renowned for its effectiveness in treating pain syndrome. The principle behind acupuncture lies on the balance of Qi, or the vital life force that keeps the homeostasis and nourishment of the body. When Qi flows smoothly via the meridian channels, supplying the nourishment that body organs need to sustain the life, there would be no pain. If for some reason, that Qi becomes stagnant or is blocked in certain meridian channels, there would be pain manifested. The function of Acupuncture in a nutshell, is to remove the blockage, re-establish the flow of Qi, thus, health can be restored.

Pain is a feeling that can be triggered by many different causes. It is a message transmitted to body from nervous system, which alerts us to the injuries or illness that need attention. Pain can be sharp or dull, off-and-on or steady, local or all over the body, when the underlying issues are addressed, pain usually goes away. In another angle, pain can be caused by metabolites or toxins in body, through circulation system, toxins are carried to different parts or organs of body. When toxins got stuck in joints, we have joint pain, same to the muscle pain, back pain, neck pain. If brain has toxins lodged, that will result in having brain fog, deviated thinking etc… If this is the reason, pain is considered as a problem of clearance that needs a detoxification plan.

There are many prescriptions or non-prescription medicine available to treat pain, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which are often used for milder pain. For lingering or more serious pain, stronger medication or steroidal prescription drugs are used, coupled with cognitive and occupational therapy. As non-drug treatment, Acupuncture is recommended to treat back pain, headache, neck pain as well as other type of serious pains when the conventional medicine is not working well.

Acupuncture activates the body healing systems that may be suppressed by illnesses, side effects of chemical substance or toxins. On the stimulation of the needles on corresponding meridian points, hormones are released, immune systems are strengthened, and normal organ functions are restored, resulting in disappearance of the pain.

Acupuncture has a natural detoxification effect. In many government sponsored detoxification programs, acupuncture is used to help people suffering from the drug, alcohol addictions or chemical substance abuse. Grouped with carefully selected meridian points, acupuncture increases excretion of body toxins, clears up the metabolites lodged in particular organs, boosts up brain function, benefiting patients both physically and mentally.

As an important part of the alternative medicine, acupuncture is recognized to treat many diseases, that include depression, diabetes, or hypertension.
