KEVIN HUANG, LICENSED ACUPUNCTURIST, L.AC., NATURAL MEDICINE CENTER, CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP MY DISEASE CONDITION?
ACUPUNCTURE BENEFITS, CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP?
The most important historical effects that acupuncture treatment has been known for is in the regulation of the functions and of body normalization. It increases the resistance of the body by enhancing the capabilities of the body. Acupuncture has such a powerful pain killing effect to release natural endorphins that it is now used in surgical operations as the only anesthetic. Over 2,000,000 surgical operations have already been performed with acupuncture as the only anesthetic.
Acupuncture normalizes the functions of the body. For example, constipation and diarrhea are two extremities of abnormal bowel movement. The normalizing effect of acupuncture can be observed as fine needles are placed in exactly the same locations for either conditions. This cannot happen with modern medicine because diarrhea can never be treated with laxatives. This effect of acupuncture indicates that it is a natural way of healing the illness by working with the body rather than on the body.
With acupuncture, the patient will not have to learn to live with the disease. Many patients have been told to see a psychiatrist because no physiological disorder can be found, even though the patient fervently attests that he/she is in tremendous pain or discomfort. Sometimes they are simply told to learn to live with it because all the blood work and lab results show no abnormalities and normal ranges. Also, many patients who have been properly diagnosed are often times told to just live with it because they have been treated by known methods and little to no improvement was made. Something can be done and has been done, because acupuncture has helped in cases where other methods of treatment have failed. Acupuncture treats the causes as well as the symptoms of an illness. You don’t have to just live with it anymore!
The National Institute of Health in the United States also offered funds for acupuncture research. The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems, including:
