Spiritual & Healing Practices: Acupuncture Healing Though considered to be an alternative healing medicine practice, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (or TCM), and other such Eastern healing practices have found their way into the Western world and other Asian countries outside of China. Consequently, acupuncture healing and wellness clinics have proliferated even in the most modern of places all over the world.    In the U.S., acupuncture, TCM, and other alternative healing medicine practices are integrated with Western medicine because there are laws regulating the practice of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.    Acupuncture healing is a centuries’ old Chinese medical practice which involves the insertion (hence, “puncture”) of needles into specific points on the body, and then manipulating said needles to stimulate the flow of energy in the body. It has been found to be effective for therapeutic and pain relief purposes; thus, its growing popularity.    According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture points are located along certain “meridians” of the body which when stimulated by needles can free the flow of blocked “energy”. Blockages in the flow of energy are believed to be caused by many lifestyle factors, including food intake, a person’s state of mind, state of spiritual wellbeing, etc.    Meridians are described as interconnected “points” across the anatomy which correspond with and affect specific organs of the body. This forms the foundation of other healing alternatives, such as reflexology, acupressure, etc. Acupuncture, TCM, and other alternative healing medicine take into account the wellness, not just of the body, but of the mind and spirit. In this sense, acupuncture healing is holistic healing.

The concept of sweet that we tend to think of in the west is very different from the way traditional systems, like Chinese medicine classify sweet foods. Sweet foods in any traditional system include nearly all vegetables, meats, as well as whole grains and legummes. These foods comprise the basis of a healthy diet...

 

Editor´s Note: This is a great article that explains the concept of 'sweet' foods according to Chinese medicine. It offers an explanation to the process of cravings, and a simple and convenient way to counteract a sweet tooth.

Licensed for more than 20 years, Bower sees both children and adults with ADHD, and says for them acupuncture is a complimentary form of medicine.

It works well in addition to other treatments, such as behavioral therapy and nutritional plans. Acupuncture is based on the theory that the body's energy or "qi" flows freely when you are well. But, it can become blocked or weakened...

 

Editor's Note: This is a great article explaining ADHD, which is a very common condition affecting many children and adults. Acupuncture treatments are used to balance the person's organ systems and internal energy, which in turn alleviates the symptoms of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and anxiety among other things. A patient's own experience is highlighted as to how well the treatments have worked for her. Acupuncture is a great alternative or adjunct to medication and other therapies.

Lissa Coffey learns about the acupuncture, and a particular type of acupuncture called "Mei Zen" which is like a natural face lift!

 

Editor's Note: "When you feel good you look good." That's the basis for Mei Zen. It balances the energy of the face and body to relieve lines on the face giving a fresher more relaxed appearance. Definitely a viable alternative to plastic surgery, with no recuperation time. And as an added benefit, a Mei Zen procedure is very relaxing.

Although assisted reproduction techniques like IVF and ICSI have been in use since the 1970s, they are still something of an inexact science. Success rates for each therapy range from as low as 1% to as high as 50%, and a successful pregnancy depends on a variety of factors, including the age of the woman, the cause of infertility, and the skill of the technician performing the procedure. Acupuncture is a useful tool for patients looking to increase their chances of becoming pregnant following assisted reproduction therapy...

Most of Eastern Philosophy and Medicine comes from observing Nature and the Universe. Ancient Chinese realized early that most things in Nature are cyclical and by observing the human body’s patterns, established that our own energy (Qi) also moves on daily and on annual cycles.
