Understanding the Benefits of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine [your practical simple guide]
I hear it all the time: What does acupuncture do? How does it work? What are the benefits of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Keep reading and I will explain.
Really, it’s simple: acupuncture removes energetic blockages that prevent the free flow of our blood and nervous system signals.
When we have energetic blockages, signals can’t get through, oxygen and other nutrients can’t reach every cell, waste products can’t be properly eliminated, complex hormonal messages get bungled, and then eventually we get symptoms of pain, brain fog, fatigue, etc.
Acupuncture works to free up the flow of energy in the channels of the body, which are like blood vessels and nerves, a complex system of highways, roads, streams, creeks, rivers, bridges, that connect every part of us with every other part.
Herbal medicine works on the deeper organ level. It corrects the functioning of our liver system, our cardiovascular system, our lymph system, our genitourinary system, our cognition, and emotions, etc.
Together, it’s a complete system of healthcare and does not compartmentalize each body part or each organ. A lot of my patients like this because in conventional medicine there is a different doctor for every body part, but no one is looking at the whole. Chinese Medicine has principles based on natural law, so the whole is accounted for.
Still boggled? Still curious? Me too! And so are my colleagues! We marvel at the beauty and amazement of this medicine every day, and never take for granted the grand design of the human organism. But we do love to apply it and see it work!
