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.

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This is such a cute video to promote acupuncture! It is a light-hearted song that gives little tidbits of information about Chinese Medicine along with a long list of celebrities that love and use it already. It is always fun to hear A-list stars getting acupuncture too!

The short hand way of describing everything that is contained in the physical universe is to say that all things are governed by the rule of the unity of opposites. An even shorter version of describing the same thing is to say that the universe is ruled by Yin and Yang...

This palms-up position may be familiar to committed meditators and yogis who practice shavasana, but it’s foreign to those of us who spend a lot of time at a computer, behind the wheel of a car, holding babies, making lattes, or doing pretty much anything else that requires constant hand use...

 

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I love this article! Sara gives us a simple, effortless way to improve our posture that takes literally less than ten seconds. She received this little gem of information from one of our esteemed acupuncture colleagues Kiiko Matsumoto. Although receiving acupuncture is not a requirement, she explains how the acupuncture meridians connect with the exercise. Genius!

I have been privileged to practice traditional Oriental Medicine for many years. This is a practice rooted in prevention and an integrated approach to health. It is an elegant and effective form of medicine. Yet its very roots and basic philosophy are overwhelmed and challenged by the sheer toxicity, high stress and lack of balance in much of modern life. Our commitment to health democracy can include a commitment to reversing these trends through our personal decisions...

Just about everyone has heard that acupuncture is good for pain, headaches, lower back problems etc.

But few, including many of my colleagues in Acupuncture and Allied Modalities realize how potent skillfully applied acupuncture can be in promoting better health and in the case of Olympic Gold Medalist Emma Snowsill, a way of recapturing her competitive mojo...

Similar to opening Pandora’s jar, taking enzyme supplements for breaking up biofilms can release hidden pains.
At a recent seminar, medical practitioners were shown how earthworm enzymes are able to break up slimy biofilms and uncover hidden Lyme disease bacteria. A biofilm is a protective slime that bacteria and other germs encase themselves in to avoid being killed...

 

Editor's Note: Lyme Disease is awful to have and difficult to treat. One of the factors complicating treatment is the protective biofilm the bacteria surround themselves in that is difficult for the antibiotics to penetrate. Once the biofilm is penetrated and the bacteria are killed, they release toxins which cause a Herxheimer reaction. In this article, Greg Lee, LAc who focused his practice in treating Lyme and other chronic diseases discusses these issues. He mentions representative Chinese herbs which calm the mind when toxic emotions are released.

Consumptive diseases have been grouped into a category of “Miscellaneous Diseases” (Za Bing) by Zhang Zhongjing in his text Jin Gui Lao Yue (Synopsis of Prescriptions of the Golden Cabinet) written in 220 A.C.E2., during the Han Dynasty. This text proves to be one of the most important references used by doctors of herbal medicine for the past 1,800 years...

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.
